Synopsis (Goodreads):
Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, is glad to have you. We cater to particular kind of guests, the ones most people don’t know about. The older lady sipping her Mello Yello is called Caldenia, although she prefers Your Grace. She has a sizable bounty on her head, so if you hear kinetic or laser fire, try not to stand close to the target. Our chef is a Quillonian. The claws are a little unsettling, but he is a consummate professional and truly is the best chef in the Galaxy. If you see a dark shadow in the orchard late at night, don’t worry. Someone is patrolling the grounds. Do beware of our dog.

Your safety and comfort is our first priority. The inn and your host, Dina Demille, will defend you at all costs. We ask only that you mind other guests and conduct yourself in a polite manner.
Thoughts on One Fell Sweep: THIS SERIES IS KILLING ME DEAD. In a good way. I am SO enamored of every aspect of it. From Dina's awesome powers when she's connected to her inn to Sean and his stoic, tortured self as he struggles to overcome what he went through while he was parted from Dina to the WILD cast of characters that slip into Dina's orbit. LOVE.

I fell for this series in book one, but this one just made me grin. Dina's reunited with some of her family (just so you don't get your hopes up, it's her sister and niece- WHO ARE BOTH PRETTY DARN AWESOME). She and Sean are standing on the brink of something, they just need to admit what they have between them (and Sean needs to make sure his heads in the right place...actually Dina kinda needs to do that too). And Dina being Dina, she can't turn away when someone comes to her inn for help. Which, of course, lands her in the middle of hot water.

I was very glad to see some resolution happen with the suspicious police officer and I love that George is still out there, flitting around and being his George-y self. Maybe I'm reading too much into him, but I like to think these little things he's setting up are his way of apologizing for what happened during the peace summit.

I'm going to be eternally optimistic and believe that there are LOTS more adventures waiting for Dina and the Gertrude Hunt. If we're lucky. we'll get to read about them.
