This novella in the Borderline Chronicles series is one of my personal favorites. (I had the pleasure of beta-reading this one, too.) Sam is on the spectrum and Tezza has spent a long time unsure whether her missing husband is dead or alive. Tezza is tough and Sam is sweet, and I really liked seeing the interactions between these two. There's also more magic in this one than in some of the other books in this series, because Tezza is a magic-user.

Recommended if you want a quick read wit

I wrote it, which means I've read it many, many times...and I still love it. It might be my favorite book I've written. But that's like picking which kid you like best...(no, kids, I don't have a favorite, sorry).
