Welcome to Pippington, where motorcars bump down old city lanes, frogs transform into men, and mermaids just might be real.
Evelyn Havish is through waiting for Henry Kingston to look up from his ledgers and propose. But, when Henry’s brother Jack is transformed into a frog and trapped in a well, Evelyn must join the rescue. Armed with her training as a lady and a solid punch, Evelyn must outwit a scheming heiress, wrestle an octopus, and kiss far more frogs than a girl should be expected to. As she dives deeper into a hidden world of magic, she discovers Jack may not be the one who needs saving.
The Lady and the Frog is the second book in the Pippington Tales.

I really enjoyed returning to Pippington for this tale of adventure and sweet romance. Pippington is a small city around the turn of the century, but with a fairy tale twist. Unknown to most of the citizens, magic is real and can be dangerous! This time the story of the Frog Prince mingles with that of the Little Mermaid. The meek and humble must go up against the magical and powerful. Lovers are tested in overlapping, contrasting threads. I loved how fates were settled by humble skills rather than dazzling magic. I enjoyed the dazzling show of magic and the glitter of a bygone era. Highly recommended.
