Love Story by Jeanne C. Stein

Love Story (from Dead but Not Forgotten)
Rating:

Fans of Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse series may be interested in this one as Stein imagines Adele Stackhouse’s (Sookie’s grandmother) affair with Fintan, a fairy, written as extracts of Adele’s long-lost diary from that time period.

I found Fintan awkward and strange. I understood why Adele would embark on such an affair – for the prospect of a child in her depressingly childless marriage – but Fintan’s motivation is unclear other than easy sex with none of the responsibility for the results. It’s been awhile since I’ve read Harris’s books so I can’t quite remember Fintan’s point of view on this, whether he saw it as altruism or pure lust.

*Free audiobook from Audible, narrated by Johanna Parker.
**This story was originally included in anthology Dead but Not Forgotten: Stories from the World of Sookie Stackhouse edited by Charlaine Harris & and Toni L.P. Kelner.
