Pursuing Prissie ♦ Familiar faces, new friends, family traditions, high hopes, lurking danger, angelic archers, gentle romance, and apple pie. ♦ Ten years after the events of The Blue Door, Prissie Pomeroy experiences an angelic reprise when she meets another little boy she shouldn’t be able to see. Asher seems to be using his Caretaker’s powers very carelessly, but he claims to be Sent. His meddling mixes up Prissie’s life just in time for Ransom Pavlos to return to West Edinton. The newly credentialed pastry chef hopes to make a place for himself in town, preferably at Prissie’s side. But she’s too distracted by a very different pursuit to notice. An old enemy finds his way back to the Pomeroys’ farm, and the Guardian who knows him best must step forward to keep Prissie safe.
Rating: While the characters of Pursuing Prissie are a decade older, the story is in keeping with the main series. Yes, there’s a romance underway, but I’d consider this book appropriate for tween/teen readers. As with all my stories, the focus remains on family, friendship, and faith. [Ages 13+]

Naomi’s serious gray eyes put Jayce’s heart in a whirl, but how does a classically-trained patisserie impress a young woman who had no taste for frippery?
