The Only Purple House in Town

This charming, cozy, contemporary romance from Aguirre (the fourth in the “Fix-It Witches” series, following Extra Witchy) is filled with wonderfully quirky characters.

Bookshop Cinderella

The story contains a great mix of wit and attraction as opposites clash and romance blooms. Recommended for readers who like historical romance, independent women, high-society romance, and transformation stories.
