After the amazing grand finale events in One Fell Sweep when the romance thread of the plot seemed to finish, I wanted more. I love the world of the series, the cast of characters, and yes that low hum buzz of a romance for the Innkeeper and the werewolf. So, this novella was welcome.
Sweep with Me carries on during the events off world in book four and is part of a series that must be read in order.
Dina and Sean nervously anticipate their summoning to the Assembly, but then Tony drops by with the mixed news that instead they have been asked to host an alien guest who will most certainly bring a tricky situation. Sean is so new to his chosen place at Dina’s side as an Innkeeper and she is still recovering from the hardship of losing that baby Inn and the rest of the catastrophic events that her confidence in bringing it all off is shaken. They have the big Innkeeper’s holiday that means they take in one and all who have not been banned that brings them a few more complications, too.
But, each of her friends and most certainly her lover and Gertrude Hunt itself teach Dina that she is not on her own and it can all be done when they work together and she learns to rely on and trust them and herself.
Sweep With Me was a lovely after story, but it also felt like a reset for a new series arc because there was tone to it and of course some series plot threads are left dangling. That said, I loved seeing Dina and Sean continue to gel as a couple and a new pair who have very different skills and ways of doing things trying to work together. Orro has his own culinary crisis that was fun and Caldenia and Officer Marais are as entertaining as ever. I need more and can only hope the authors return to the series at some point. Those who have not tried this series and love a mesh of urban fantasy and sci-fi really must give it a go.

About the Book
A charming, short novella in the Innkeeper Chronicles, from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Ilona Andrews. Thank you for joining us at Gertrude Hunt, the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, during the Treaty Stay. As you know, we are honor-bound to accept all guests during this oldest of innkeeper holidays and we are expecting a dangerous guest. Or several. But have no fear. Your safety and comfort is our first priority. The inn and your hosts, Dina Demille and Sean Evans, will defend you at all costs. [But we hope we don’t have to.]
Every winter, Innkeepers look forward to celebrating their own special holiday, which commemorates the ancient treaty that united the very first Inns and established the rules that protect them, their intergalactic guests, and the very unaware/oblivious people of [planet] Earth. By tradition, the Innkeepers welcomed three guests: a warrior, a sage, and a pilgrim, but during the holiday, Innkeepers must open their doors to anyone who seeks lodging. Anyone.
All Dina hopes is that the guests and conduct themselves in a polite manner. But what’s a holiday without at least one disaster?
