This was.. endearing, lovely, fun, and oddly enchanting. Combining regency romance with goblin magic and faerie was an excellent recepy. It managed to capture some of that weird enchantment I seek in portal fantasy, and I liked Bessie. A good light read for rainy days, shall be reading more from this author for sure. ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since I read Spinning Silver AND Digger, I've been in a serious book hangover. They are pretty hard ones to top, so I've been wandering aimlessly here and there with my books and nothing seems right.

BUT. This little series combining regency novels and fantasy seem just the right kind of fun. And goblins are always A Good Thing.

esurient Super curious to learn your thoughts upon reading these. 7mo
