Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his old nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his old nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .
Oh Aquarius, so wonderfully weird! You are all about openness, communication, and giving to those in need.

My book pick for you: Flat-Out-Love, by Jessica Park.
With your dreaminess and desire to escape reality, Pisces, you crave a strong Happily Ever After. Caring, wise, and generous, you seek passion in your books.

My book pick for you: Carry On, by Rainbow Rowell
Going through life with courage and dedication to your goals, a good novel for you must have a solid plot with clear character goals. A touch impatient, Aries, the novel should be well paced and always moving forward, and it should show the main character making use of his talents.
My book pick for you: Captive Prince, by C.S. Pacat
Reliable, patient, practical Taurus. Your devotedness makes you a true treasure. You seek entire libraries full of love and beauty to surround you, but you prefer your romance to be realistic. Romance novels are best with characters who take time to get to know each other. Characters who seek emotional as well as physical intimacy. You are likely to be a lover of slower burning love stories.
My book pic for you: The Wall of Winnipeg and Me, by Mariana Zapata
Curious, affectionate and fantastically flirty, you are so much fun to be around, Gemini! With your quick wit and need for entertainment, you enjoy romances that either make you think and philosophize, or romances that are quick light-hearted reads. A bit of both worlds works wonders for you. Also, quirky side-characters can really elevate a book for you!
My book pick for you: The Lightning Struck Heart, by TJ Klune
Highly empathetic, imaginative and loyal. Cancer, you are all about the heart! A good romance for you needs to be rich in emotion. Characters must tap into your sympathetic and sentimental side and if they hook you, pulling you through the deep waters to their Happily Ever After is easy. You love stories that make you laugh out loud, make you tear up, make you want to reach into the book and knock their heads together.
My book pick for you: Bear, Otter, and The Kid, by TJ Klune
Oh lazy Leo, just loving to lounge about and be the center of attention! The perfect romance book for you is one that is dramatic, passionate, and creative.

My book pick for you: The Foxhole Court trilogy, by Nora Sakavic
Attuned to the smallest detail, Virgo? Need a romance that is smart and sarcastic, one that that clicks with your quick wit? Trust is key in relationships and you love to see it develop between the characters in a romance novel, too. You are good at reading between the lines, better at saying things how they are. You love great banter and characters who are smart.
My book pick for you: Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins
Peacemakers! Libra, you’re all about harmony, symmetry and fairness. Good romance books therefore are best when they are balanced. Creative, expressive, charming. Heroes should be fair, consistent and open-minded. They should love spending a lot of time with their love interest, love reading, and love debating. It’s difficult for you, Libra, when you’re forced to choose between two competing ships. Love triangles are most times frustrating.
My book pick for you: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, by Benjamin Alire Sáenz
Scorpio, you are a well of deep emotions and secrets. While you love to maintain an air of mystery about you, you love to know what everyone else is thinking and feeling. A good romance for you is one that lets you play detective; lets you guess at the hidden meanings behind small gestures. Characters should intrigue you, and bring the heat. Sexiness is definitely a win.
My book pick for you: One For The Money, by Janet Evanovich
Playful and fun, you love characters that are open, passionate, willing to try new things. Oh, Sagittarius, so many things can work for you in a romance! You love to dabble in most genres, so long as the narrative is smart and the writing shows some sense of humor. A little impatient, you prefer the slightly faster-paced books. When you find a winner, you are often very enthusiastic about it and love to share.
My book pick for you: Hero, by Perry Moore
A discerning reader. Capricorn, it’s not easy for a romance book to win your heart. When one does, though, you will likely reread it over and over. You like characters that share experiences from your own life and you appreciate when the love interest shows their love through actions rather than words. Romance books can be quiet and subtle, their power coming from an understated narrative.
My book pick for you: Arrows Through Archer, by Nash Summers
