Lose yourself in the magical forests and charming towns of the Pacific Northwest, where picturesque Victorian homes hide mysteries spanning decades, faeries watch from the trees, and romance awaits...for those bold enough to seek it.

Cass is a drifter. When she inherits an old Queen Anne Victorian in rural Oregon from her great-aunt Alexandra, all she wants is to quickly offload the house and move on to bigger and better things. But the residents of the small town have other plans in mind. Her neighbors are anxious for her to help them thwart the plans of a land developer eager to raze Alexandra’s property, while a mysterious girl in the woods needs Cass’s help understanding her own confusing, possibly supernatural abilities.

And though little surprises Cass (thanks to her own magical powers of prediction), she never could have anticipated her newfound feelings for the handsome fourth-grade teacher at the local elementary school — feelings that she thought she’d buried long ago. Cass has sworn off love, but Matthew McCarthy is unlike anyone Cass has ever met. If she isn’t careful, he could learn her secret. Or worse — he just might thaw her frozen heart.

But falling in love could spell danger for both of them. Because it’s not just the human residents of Riddle that have snared Cass in their web. Cass’s presence has caught the attention of the fae that dwell in the woods. They know she has the Sight, and they don’t want to let her go....

My thoughts:

Alexandra's Riddle was a pleasant surprise.  It is the first book in the Northwest magic series. the story involves Cass who inherits a large house.  Cass doesn't want the house and intends to sell it as soon as possible.  However, someone or something else may have other ideas.  As I said, this one was a pleasant surprise. 

I thought it was a really cute paranormal romance.  I enjoyed the setting of the town as well as the surrounding woods.  Cass can see fairies, brownies, and other creatures. Mr. Green was my favorite.  She meets a little girl from the town who has the sight as well.  Matthew won my heart over from the beginning.  His and Cass's romance was really sweet.  I loved his philosophy of blessings.  There is a little magical mystery that Cass has to solve because only she has the key.  She just needs to remember.  I listened to the audio-book and enjoyed the experience.  I definitely recommend this one.
