Publisher's Summary

Dina DeMille isn't your typical bed and breakfast owner. Her inn defies laws of physics, her dog is secretly a monster, and the only permanent guest of the inn is a former galactic tyrant with a price on her head. The inn needs guests to thrive and guests have been scarce, so when an arbitrator shows up at Dina's door and asks her to host a peace summit between three warring species, she jumps on the chance. Unfortunately, for Dina, bridging the gap between space vampires, the Hope-Crushing Horde, and the merchants of Baha-char is much easier said than done. To make the summit a success, she must find a chef, remodel the inn, keep her guests from murdering each other, and risk everything, even her life, to save the man she might fall in love with. But then it's all in the day's work for an innkeeper....

    "Loved it! But....."
    Where does Sweep in Peace rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I defiantly loved this book! I would say it's not as high as new species series but it's certainly middle/high area


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Main character


    What didn’t you like about Renee Raudman’s performance?

    Her voice!! I can not express myself how much I hated her voice!! The female character in the book is young. But unfortunately they gave her an annoyingly old grandma voice!!! It's that type of voice that really grates at you and athough the book is certainly worth reading the voice ruined for me. I didn't consider stoping half way but pushed on instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Next I think I might just read the book rather than listening to Rennes voice

    "I loved it"

    You know those authors that you stop all books you are reading when a new book is released? Ilona Andrews is (or are as they are a husband and wife writing team) one of those authors for me. I have never read anything I didn't love, and this book is no different. It has a magical inn and innkeeper, aliens, war, love, pain and adventure. If you're already an Ilona Andrews fan there is a crossover with characters from the Edge series (George, Jack, Gaston and Lark/Sophie)!
    Renee Raudman as usual, was amazing. I adore her narration and have loved every book I've listened that she has narrated.
    I have a happy calm right now that I get whenever I finish a great book. 😍

    What did you love best about Sweep in Peace?

    Rich world that connects to another series by same author. Getting to virtually live in said world for a time. And thirdly, rereading Clean Sweep as an appetizer to this story. Oh, and the chef, definitely want to take classes from him.


    What does Renee Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    For me, Renee is one of the few narrators who really make the characters distinct, individual, and alive. I can tell instantly by the voice who is talking, what they are feeling and so on.


    Any additional comments?

    My only problem is that first part of epilogue was left out of the audio version. Well, and the problem that book 3 isn't written yet, lol.

    "Book 2"

    First book was a read twice book. This novel is a bit of a disappointment after the first one left you wanting more. It was more complicated to keep up with. To many mysteries clashing with each other. Simpler is always better

    "Better Than the First"

    The series got a bit of a re-tooling. Dina is back better than ever. Her broom has amped up powers. Her inn gets important guests. Best of all, George and Jack, the young brothers from the Edge series, join the cast, and they're all grown up. I didn't miss Dina's werewolf love interest Sean from the first Innkeeper Chronicle book -- Clean Sweep. This installment had so much going on, inserting him into the story might have overbalanced the crazy. This book had just the right amount of wild imagination. I hope the series keeps going in the direction of speculative fiction because it just works. Who needs a bodice ripper when you're a broom wielding, magic-flinging innkeeper with attitude? After too short a stay at the Gertrude Hunt, I'd like to make a reservation for the next book in the series because so far every word has been fantastic.

    "**Reviews courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy**"

    I'm sorry if I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but I want to start this review off by once again complimenting the amazing artwork of Doris Mantair. And along with the fantastic cover art Ilona Andrews also commissioned another four pieces of art that are scattered throughout SWEEP IN PEACE. I really wish that more books did that. It's easier to do now that so many people read ebooks, and it brings the story to life a little bit more. Though Ilona Andrews really doesn't need any help bringing the story to life.

    Part of what made CLEAN SWEEP a 5 bat book was the unique idea behind the Innkeeper Chronicles. I was a little worried that part of that wonder would've worn off by SWEEP IN PEACE, but that wasn't the case for me. Ilona Andrews continues to add to the world of the Innkeeper Chronicles and keeps the world alive and vibrant.

    In CLEAN SWEEP there was a lot of action and fighting since Dina, Sean, and Arland were trying to take down an assassin. However, SWEEP IN PEACE has almost no action or fighting. I love when an author can switch things up like that and still make the book amazing, but some people won't like it. SWEEP IN PEACE is all about court intrigue and politics, because Dina is hosting a peace summit at Gertrude Hunt. Ilona Andrews is constantly keeping you guessing and the pace is still fast and intense, just different from CLEAN SWEEP.

    I also loved the romance that was in SWEEP IN PEACE. Now a lot of people will read SWEEP IN PEACE and say that there isn't any romance, and that's because there isn't a ton of interaction between Dina and Sean or Dina and Arland. However, there is a lot of character growth and development related to these romantic relationships. I've always preferred books where an author can pull off an amazing slow burn of a relationship rather than an instant scorching fire. Those relationships are the ones that I get more connected to and invested in because they're more realistic and believable.

    Finally, for those of you who read The Edge series, you'll get to see some of your favorite characters again. In CLEAN SWEEP there was just a minor mention of two characters from The Edge, but in SWEEP IN PEACE George, Jack, Gaston, and Lark all play large roles in the story. Don't worry if you haven't read The Edge you won't be confused by anything in SWEEP IN PEACE, but I also highly recommend reading The Edge series if you haven't.

    SWEEP IN PEACE is an excellent second installment in the Innkeeper Chronicles, and I can't wait to see what Dina has in store for her next!

    "A Fun Listen Overall"
    If you could sum up Sweep in Peace in three words, what would they be?

    Supernatural B&B vs. Cop


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Beast-- the dog :) Every character has their cringey moment, except Beast. He seems to be the only one that understood what is going on.


    What three words best describe Renee Raudman’s voice?

    Old School Southern.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    One B&B. One cop. Lots of guests.


    Any additional comments?

    As someone who lives in the South, I didn't think the narration was a good representation of a modern Southern accent. She sounded like a character out of Gone With The Wind, not a young woman in her early 20's. Also, despite the old-school-south accent, it didn't have much of the slang you would hear in southern states like Texas.
    That said, you can push past the accent and still be very riveted. I didn't care for how the conflict in the plot resolved, but it was still entertaining. The story overall was fun to listen to.

    Wow! The first book in this series was good, but book 2 had me dying laughing. It also made me feel a slew of other strong emotions with the characters in this book. I am so impressed with the narrator and the author.

    I enjoyed the first book in the seriers but on this second book I struggled to get through long drawn out scenes that didn't contribute to the story and was tempted to fast forward several sections.

    "Will want to read again"

    Although I loved this story, I will need to read it again. There were so many characters/clans that I got confused as to who was whom. Still, this series is just as good as the Kate Daniels series. Ilona Andrews is/are a complex writer(s). That doesn't mean that their stories are difficult to read. It is just that they have quality and substance that you don't always find in paranormal books. They are not superficial writers. Their stories require you to think, which is great. Your mind is a bad things to loose. You need to stimulate it and that is what they do. Only, I find that I need my full attention on their stories. The narrator, Renee Raudman, does an excellent job of giving us the characters that the authors have created. I was at least glad that Sean (from the previous book) and Dina did have an appearance together, although a very small part of the book. Trying to figure out how Dina was going to get out of her bad situation, was very stimulating to my creativity, but the author(s) did a great job of wrapping it up to my satisfaction.

    Would you listen to Sweep in Peace again? Why?

    Yes! I loved the Edge series and she brings some of the Edge characters into this series as well. Oh how I've missed the Edge folks! Not only are these books well written but the narrator is perfect for all of Ilona Andrews' books.
