Ruby (rubita) | 22 comments I'm looking for the rural equivalent of Urban Fantasy. I've read the Sookie Stackhouse books and Sunshine by Robin McKinley. Any other suggestions?

Terry (Ter05 TwiMoms/ MundieMoms) (ter05) | 608 comments Shiver/Linger. I assume you have heard of Twilight. LOL And I have no idea what Urban Fantasy actually is and every explanation I have had is confusing, so I will just assume "contemporary urban small town" story with fantasy!

Beautiful Creatures.

Like a Charm is set in a small town in TX. This sort of intersects with the Browyn the Witch series Charmed & Dangerous is the first of that series.

Then, there is A Date with the Other Side which is only sort of PNR.

For small towns, a lot of those seem to be more in the "light and fluffy" style of PNR books.

Also, Stormwalker takes place in Magellan, AZ, very small town.

Nairabell | 193 comments Any of Michele Bardsley's Broken Heart novels (starting with I'm the Vampire, That's Why) or Vicki Lewis Thompson's Hex books (starting with Over Hexed) although these are both PNR :)

Actually Pack Challenge, which is the first of the Magnus Pack books is set in a small town. The next 2 also are mostly in small towns. The Pride books tho--they are mostly "big city" altho in the last one currently out Beast Behaving Badly is partially set in a small town in Maine.

Jessica Gleason (skoopatroopaskooperstar) | 1 comments Read Madison Murphy, Wisconsin Weirdo. It's a quick novella, but enjoyable. Centers on Were's.

Christen (GoldiloxReads) | 57 comments Hello! I haven't actually read this series, but Would-Be Witch (A Southern Witch Novel, #1) by Kimberly Frost is set in a small town and has a Southern feel.
