It’s October and I am SO EXCITED because it means that spooky season is in full swing! I’ve had my house decorated for Halloween since Labor Day and I am determined to enjoy all of the awesomeness that this fall has to offer. So, of course, my book choices are going to reflect the time of year. I’m not much of a horror person - I leave the gruesome and macabre to Jeriann - but I loooooooove me some fantasy. Especially urban fantasy. Since the sequel to Hypnos hasn’t been released yet (dangit) and the next Patricia Briggs book isn’t out until March 2021, I went with something new.

When I read the blurb for I Owe You One, I was immediately excited to start reading the book. Set in England, the story follows a girl everyone calls Fixie - because she has a compulsion to fix things. When a stranger asks her to watch his laptop in a coffee shop while he takes a call, she is happy to help. And when she ends up saving the stranger’s laptop from disaster, he insists on giving her an IOU for a favor. According to the blurb, a hilarious bout of favor-trading and love-falling ensues.
