One Fell Sweep

Book: One Fell Sweep
Series: Innkeeper Chronicles #3
Author: Ilona Andrews

Dina DeMille may run the nicest Bed and Breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, but she caters to a very particular kind of guest… the kind that no one on Earth is supposed to know about. Guests like a former intergalactic tyrant with an impressive bounty on her head, the Lord Marshal of a powerful vampire clan, and a displaced-and-superhot werewolf; so don’t stand too close, or you may be collateral damage.

But what passes for Dina’s normal life is about to be thrown into chaos. First, she must rescue her long-distant older sister, Maud, who’s been exiled with her family to a planet that functions as the most lawless penal colony since Botany Bay. Then she agrees to help a guest whose last chance at saving his civilization could bring death and disaster to all Dina holds dear. Now Gertrude Hunt is under siege by a clan of assassins. To keep her guests safe and to find her missing parents, Dina will risk everything, even if she has to pay the ultimate price. Though Sean may have something to say about that!!-Goodreads

Review: One Fell Sweep concludes the Innkeeper Chronicles and while I didn't enjoy it quite as much as the previous installments, it was still a really good read. Dina enlists Arland's help rescuing her sister, Maud and her young niece. I absolutely loved Arland and Maud and seeing their relationship develop. Arland is so funny and his uncle questioning Dina about her sister's history was very great. I loved Dina and Sean (especially the meet the parents scene). The primary conflict in the book is when Dina agrees to help a guest save his civilization and she is targeted by assassins. I found her guests pretty much devoid of personality and I wasn't as invested in that story line.

Overall, really good read and fabulous series. 

Now, Ilona-can Arland get his own series?? :)  

Grade: 4/5
