This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .
I didn’t think it would be possible for Anyta Sunday to come close to the perfection of Leo Loves Aries. But she did, folks. This was nearly as magical.
Percy and Cal have been nemeses for many years now. They lived across the street from each other for years, and both are back in their hometown to sort out family stuff.
At first, I didn’t understand how these two fit with the couple from the first book. It didn’t seem like they had any link to Theo and Jamie at all. But Percy and Cal, come to find out, are neighbors of Theo and Leone’s parents. And didn’t I just LOVE how she spread the horoscope love to Cal and Percy too.
Percy is back in his aunt’s home, the woman who took him in when he needed it most, after he is forced to bury her.
He’s continually running into Cal, of course, because of proximity. These two have been snarky to each other for a long time. Never cruel. Just foreplay-ridden banter, if you ask me.
Percy begins to see Cal in a new light, though. And it seems as if Cal, whom Percy always thought was straight, is seeing Percy in a new light too. The snarky banter keeps going, too. Boy, does it. This is my favorite thing about this series, by far!
A neighborly game of Sherlock Gnomes and a case of mistaken identity definitely shine a new light on our MCs. But there’s all these years of dislike……right? Can Percy really trust Cal?
It was with a giant smile that I read this book in one sitting. The humor, the playfulness, the feelz. Sunday did an amazing job with this story. And bonus points for a cameo of Theo and Jamie!
Those who loved book 1 won’t be disappointed!
