Love Springs Eternal by SJ Himes: This is the fifth book in the Beacon Hill Sorcerer series, and Daniel and Rory's story. Daniel and Rory met a couple of books earlier in the series, and I've been waiting for their story. It definitely didn't disappoint—and it also set up an interesting situation for the next book in the series, which I will be waiting for eagerly! I don't think this book would standalone well, so start at the beginning of the series.
All Fired Up by Jenn Burke: All Fired Up is the first book in the Ashes & Dust series, a spin-off of her Not Dead Yet series, which I loved. It's taken me far too long to get to this book (stupid pandemic brain not letting me read properly), but I've read it now and I loved the beginning of Evan's story. I can't wait to see what happens next for him. You probably could start with this book, but you'll understand more about the characters and their situations if you go back to Not Dead Yet (which is so good anyway).
Lords of the Underworld series by Sam Burns and WM Fawkes: I binged through the three books in this series (and then Wildfire, the first book out in the spin-off series) very quickly in September. I thoroughly enjoyed this take on Greek gods in the modern world with lots of intrigue, magic, and romance. I'll be impatiently waiting for the next book.
The Affair of the Mysterious Letter by Alexis Hall: This fantasy take on Sherlock Holmes was utterly delightful, just so fun and funny. The Holmes character is an eccentric sorceress and the Watson character a starchy, easily shocked but steadfastly loyal trans man, whose voice as narrator was wonderful. The world building was complex and interesting and the mystery sufficiently twisty. I really wish there were more books with these two characters. I listened to the audio and the narrator was fantastic.
The Wife in the Attic by Rose Lerner: I was intrigued as soon as I heard the premise of this book: an f/f Regency Gothic inspired by Jane Eyre. I listened the audiobook, but it took me a while to get through, and I think it's because I was expecting a romance, and this didn't feel like one, though there is romance in it. It is a very well-written Gothic with all the atmosphere you could expect from one, and I would absolutely recommend it for that.
