#BookReview: Hearth, Home, and Havoc by @rj_blain with @adivineeternity




About the Book: Dakota never intended to become the single mother of a goddess. To make matters worse, her daughter hadn't quite figured out her role in the grand scheme of things.

Havoc isn't supposed to be part of Hestia's portfolio, but where the young goddess of the hearth and home goes, trouble surely follows.

When Dakota's ex-husband barrels his way back into her life, a heavy dose of havoc is just what the doctor ordered. She just never expected to find love in the midst of murder.

Hearth, Home, and Havoc is part of the Legends and Lore box set, but was just re-released as a stand-alone novella, as well!

About the Author: RJ Blain suffers from a Moleskine journal obsession, a pen fixation, and a terrible tendency to pun without warning.

When she isn't playing pretend, she likes to think she's a cartographer and a sumi-e painter. In reality, she herds cats and a husband, and obeys the commands of Tsu Dhi, the great warrior fish.

In her spare time, she daydreams about being a spy. Should that fail, her contingency plan involves tying her best of enemies to spinning wheels and quoting James Bond villains until she is satisfied.

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I want to jump Viktor. You'll understand what I mean.

Notes and Opinions: This is a very, very fun novella set in a world in which basically every mythos ever imagined by anybody coexists more or less - often less - peacefully. It could have done with another 2-3k in words, honestly, explaining a few things throughout and clarifying timing, but overall it was a lot of fun and it's a great, quick read for someone looking to devour a novella and have fits of giggles in public spaces as they blush like mad at the thought of what they'd do to Viktor.

Go Into This One Knowing: RJ Blain never writes sex scenes, so her books are clean-ish and safe for most teens, as well, although it's up to parental discretion.
