Today, I got an email from Fiona, asking if I could identify a book for her. It didn’t ring a bell for me (or, rather, it rang a sort of bell, which turned out to be the wrong bell), so I thought I’d call in my crack team of book experts, i.e. you, to see if anyone else could put a name to it.
Here’s Fiona’s description of the Demmed Elusive Book:
I read it about 5 years ago, was paperback, cover was kind of cartoony; was it purple with the scene of her standing by a basement door that was cracked open and all you could see of her was from the waist down and she was wearing a skirt and heels?
Woman inherits house, it’s a sanctuary/safe house ends up with a big male fairy, and vampire living with her, for some reason there is a guy with a sword after her or a housemate, there are wards around the house. she and the guy get together, think she finds being near a really big tree on property comforting???????
the guy has a sword, only he seems to get through the ward, none of others he is with can
not sure if mixing books, but think there was something in attic, bit grumpy and got left alone.
I was initially thinking possibly Tanya Huff’s Summon the Keeper, because of the something grumpy in the attic– but I don’t think that one has a fairy.
Can anyone name that book?
Also, does anyone else have unidentified books that have been plaguing them? If you do, I’m happy to post here and see if anyone can name them!
