Iris Collins is the only mundane in a family of powerful magical beings. She’s always trying to measure up to her sisters’ successes, without any luck. When she unexpectedly inherits her great-aunt Gertie’s Victorian house in the small town of St. Claire, she sees it as a new beginning. She decides to fix it up and turn it into a rooming house in an attempt to get out of debt and get out from under her overachieving family. Eli Reese never forgot Iris, the pigtailed girl who saved him from playground bullies. He hasn’t seen her in decades and can’t believe it when he spies her in the local coffee shop, where she mistakes him for someone interested in renting a room. It’s the perfect opportunity to get to know her better, and he can’t resist—even though it means pretending they’ve never met.
VERDICT This charming, cozy, contemporary romance from Aguirre (the fourth in the “Fix-It Witches” series, following Extra Witchy) is filled with wonderfully quirky characters. The protagonists are well-developed, and the storyline is well-paced. It’s drama-free, but there are surprises around every corner and humor on every page; readers won’t want the magic to end.
