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?

I was surprised at myself. I held out for the audio! I thought that the narrator change for the series was just for Sweep Of The Blade since it was Maud’s POV, but it seems she has continued on at least for this novella.
It was so fun seeing Dina and Sean work together as innkeepers. They divided up the tasks and worked together to make sure Gertrude Hunt and it’s guests were kept safe. Sweep With Me did have a dangerous man trying to invade the inn, but we also had some great side stories. Sean and his trip to San Antonio was a good one, and Dina’s attempt to help a guest remember the little things about being human.
Sweep With Me was a great listen. I loved getting a preview of how the inn will run with a couple overseeing it. I can’t wait for the next book to see what kind of obstacles Dina, Sean and Gertrude Hunt face. A quick listen, but definitely worth spending a credit on a novella!
