The Road to Faringale
Modern Magic #1
by Charlotte E. English

Set on the rolling hills of Britain, this cozy fantasy is first in a series. As employees of the Society for Magickal Heritage, it’s up to Cordelia “Ves” Vesper and a scrappy group of magicians, necromancers, and fae to investigate why a mysterious disease is wiping out the local troll population… Perfect for fans of Jodi Taylor!

Kim's Review:
This was such a fun book, I went ahead and listened to the next 2 in the series right away. They read like a cozy mystery, but with trolls, talking books and walking towers. These are those big fun with low stakes kind of books. There's action and mayhem, but also tea. Or rather hot chocolate from a magical pot. It reminded me a bit of Legends and Lattes, another popular low stakes fantasy. If you like that kind of thing, this series was terrific.

I have to say that I listened to the audiobooks. Diana Croft is an excellent narrator and really brought that cozy feeling home. My only criticism is that the MC is supposed to be in her 30s and the narrator sounded much older. Fans of the Outlander books will know what I mean. Still, that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the books. You can get all 3 books for less that $5 right now at Chirp.

Shadows & Vines
by C.D. Britt

Everything you know about the gods of Ancient Greece is a lie. Zeus. Hades. Poseidon. They do not exist as you’ve been told.

For centuries, Persephone, the true Ruler of the Underworld, has watched humanity destroy themselves and the world around them. Known for centuries as her alter ego, Hades, she has guarded the souls under her care, her only interaction outside of her realm as C.E.O. of the largest financial company in the world, Cerberus Financial. She is content with this, except a soul has called to her and her alone for thousands of years. One that she finds herself bound to in more ways than one.

Midlife Magic & Magnolias
Meredith Carlisle

A house with “personality.” One ridiculously tall leprechaun. Two nachtmares. And three geriatric defenders straight out of the retirement village. These are my ducks, and they are not in a row.
