The Fae Next Door

Published: November 19, 2014

Publisher: Timbercreek Press

Genre: Fae, Vampire, Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance


You've never met a boy next door like him.

Janna Thompson believes she’s going downright mental. In the past few weeks, she sees things no one else can and can’t shake the unexplainable dark presence. Yet, when a hot cop with a protective instinct moves into her apartment building, things start to look up.

Cade Lanter is no ordinary being. Son of a human policeman and a Queen of the Fae, he lives in the human world for now. When an old enemy threatens the balance of both the human and Faery world, he must fight the would-be usurper in the human realm. Of course, that requires more focus than he has lately since a certain, sexy neighbor keeps him distracted.

Their two, unlikely worlds collide when he becomes The Fae Next Door.

My Review:

The Fae Next Door is the first book in the Love Next Door series by Cherie Marks but it is the third book in the series that I have read. Yes, for some odd reason, I started with book three The Dragon Next Door first. But each story can be read as stand-alone.

I enjoyed reading all three books tremendously and don’t feel as if I missed anything of importance in the stories. Each book is unique in its way. I loved all the characters and their stories. I loved the world-building in each book. The world-building in each book was magic, to say the least.

I must admit that I have enjoyed reading every book that I have read by author Cherie Marks. Cherie is one of my favorite authors and I will read anything she writes. Cherie is one of those authors where you don’t have to read the summary of one of her books to know that you are going to enjoy it.

Cade Lanter is half human and half fae. Cade has come to the human realm to find another fae that is bent on destroying the human and fae worlds. Cade must find a way to stop him before he destroys everything.

Janna Thompson believes she is going nuts as she is starting to see things. Things that are there one minute and gone the next. If that is not enough she has a new neighbor.

Cade Lanter the hot sheriff moves in next door. Sparks fly when Janna and Cade meet and things start to heat up pretty quickly after that between the two. Janna will not stay off Cade’s mind but luckily I guess it does go both ways here.

Cade knows what Janna is but of course, she has no idea. Cade is very determined to help Janna and protect her from what is to come. I can’t wait to read more in this world. I can’t wait to see what is next for the characters in Love Next Door series.

I highly recommend that you grab a copy of The Fae Next Door today! I recommend The Fae Next Door to anyone looking for a good mystery with love and magic as a bonus!

It all started with an old fashioned typewriter. When my family brought it home, I knew what I wanted to do. All those stories rolling around in my head could finally get out. The press and click of the keys were satisfying in their own right, but when I pulled out a finished page, I knew this was for me. Since then, I’ve graduated to a laptop, but the stories still find a way out.

I’m a breast cancer survivor, a teacher, a wife, a mother, and from the very beginning—a storyteller. Always a hint humorous and honest to a fault, I love to make people laugh, smile, and have “a-ha” moments. My goal in life is to achieve tact and stop procrastinating. The battle wages on.
