Publisher's Summary

A charming, short novella in the Innkeeper Chronicles, from number one The New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews.

Thank you for joining us at Gertrude Hunt, the nicest bed-and-breakfast in Red Deer, Texas, during the Treaty Stay. As you know, we are honor-bound to accept all guests during this oldest of innkeeper holidays, and we are expecting a dangerous guest. Or several. But have no fear. Your safety and comfort is our first priority. The inn and your hosts - Dina Demille and Sean Evans - will defend you at all costs. But we hope we don’t have to.

Every winter, the innkeepers look forward to celebrating their own special holiday, commemorating the ancient treaty that united the very first inns and established the rules that protect them, their intergalactic guests, and the very unaware/oblivious people of planet Earth. 

By tradition, the innkeepers welcomed three guests: a warrior, a sage, and a pilgrim, but during the holiday, the innkeepers must open their doors to anyone who seeks lodging. Anyone.

All Dina hopes is that the guests and conduct themselves in a polite manner. But what’s a holiday without at least one disaster?

Love

I’m a big fan of the inn keeper series and I really enjoyed this short novella I do hope the Andrews continue to write this series. My only disappointment was that Renee Raudman was not the narrator for this audible, Natalie Naudus did a decent job but I just think Renee has the better voice for Dima because that is how I picture her accent and she has a better Sean tone then Natalie, I think Natalie’s voice is just to soft for this series

👋

1st let me say I normally just rate audio/books and don't write reviews but I had to write this one. 2nd I am a big fan. I have every book and audiobook because I like to listen to them multiple time when I do my projects. So 💘 the book and could not wait to hear this one and was so disappointed. I wish you would used the original narrator for this character. Not because Ms Naudus done a bad job (well the Texas Imitations was bad from a Texan point of view but they were so few of them I could over look that) but just coming off the last book which she did great as she sister. I don't know if I can even finish it let alone listen to it again. Whoever thought this was a good idea let me tell you it was a bad one. Just a note to whoever..Changing narrator's is fine but not in the series when your main character is heard one way. Now I have to check this author narrative now. So disappointed 😞.

Can't finish this audiobook, poor narrator

The new narrator for this series is absolutely jarring. I own all of the books by Ilona Andrews and I am a huge fan. I often listen to them more than once. Rene Raudman was outstanding and the authors were incredibly lucky to have teamed up with her. I don't know what went into the decision to change narrators, but it was clearly a bad one. I have tried several times to listen to this audiobook, and I can't do it. The narration is terrible. Dina's soft, southern accent is gone. The narrator can't do male voices at all. The narration is inconsistent and flat. While changing narrators mid-stream is always difficult, this one is particularly challenging since it is a fan favorite series that had a fabulous narrator. I will have to return this audiobook and go back and listen to an earlier book with Ms. Raudman to purge the memory of this awful narration. Sooooooo disappointed in this audiobook.

new narrator

this short story has a different narrator that is completely different from the previous one for the lead character. It negatively impacts the story.

Really missing the previous narrator

While the story is good and what one might expect from Ilona Andrews, the change in narrator is particularly jarring. She just couldn't do my beloved Orro justice.

Love the story not the narrator

I love every story in this series. I love everything Ilona Andrews and this is no exception. I have the ebook but had to get the audiobook too. I love Renee raudmen and I get not every performer is always available but I just can’t get into this narrator. She sounds like she is trying to give the performance as a rich elitist and it’s annoying . I wouldn’t listen to her for another story if I can help it I just don’t like her style. It comes across overacted. I hope future books will go back to Renee. Great story but I’ll skip the narrated version next time if she’s it again. Please wait for Renee to be free it’s worth the wait!!

Keeps getting better

It’s two weeks after the events of One Fell Sweep. Maud and Helen have travelled to Daesyn with Arland and you can read their excellent story in Sweep of the Blade.
Meanwhile, Dina and Sean are dealing with a review by the Innkeeper Assembly, a stay by a most elusive and powerful alien, a demandingly evil millionaire, and militant space chickens having a very physical philosophical debate.
I’m sorry, but Naudus is just tippytoes this side of OK. Too much of the story just runs together and it feels like she takes away from the story which I read MANY times in kindle before audio. I have to go back to reread and clear my palate.

Another great installment in the series!

So glad to have Natalie back narrating this latest tale! Dina and Sean are at it again and Gertrude Hunt abides. May there be many more Innkeeper adventures for us to experience!

10 Times

I have listened to this story at least ten times. I enjoyed it. Dina is a character you fall in love with. And her alpha male is no joke. Thank you authors.

We need to get him a cape.

I loved it. I like Renee Raudman voice best for the Sweep series though. I want to have dinner at the inn. Orro is a superhero.

Sweep with Me

This is a wonderful fifth book in the series and is as funny as the others, with new challenges along the way. Read with great feeling by Natalie Naudus.

Sweep with Me

I love the Innkeeper Chronicles, I always feel they are not long enough. that's my problem because I get into the story and then know that it will be a long wait till the next book. Ilona Adrews (team) are awesome writers and drag you into their worlds they have created. I have loved every series they have written.

shorter than the others

shorter than the others it seemed harder to sink into. I love the creativity of the innkeeper world and the elaborate characters.
