Happily Ever Ninja

Knitting in the City

“This isn’t an odd book, but it might be a brave book, the truth about the reality of marriage (give or take a wild chase through the jungle). It was refreshing, genuine, funny and so very insightful.” Heroes and Heartbreakers

“Happily Ever Ninja is finely balanced. It’s not just about characters who put that darn ache in your chest. It’s got the fantastic banter, wit, smarts, and the feels I’ve come to expect from a Penny Reid novel… not to mention more than a dash of action!” Samantha Young, New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author

Married couple, kidnapping, Nigerian oil crisis. . . this book is weird.
From the New York Times Bestselling Author Penny Reid

There are three things you need to know about Fiona Archer… I would tell you what they are, but then I’d have to kill you.

But I can tell you that Fiona’s husband—the always irrepressible and often cantankerous Greg Archer—is desperately in love with his wife. He aches for her when they are apart, and is insatiable when they are together. Yet as the years pass, Greg has begun to suspect that Fiona is a ninja. A ninja mom. A ninja wife. A ninja friend. After fourteen years of marriage, Greg is trying not to panic. Because Fiona’s talent for blending in is starting to resemble fading away.

However, when unexpected events mean Fiona must take center stage to keep her family safe, her response stuns everyone—Greg most of all. It seems like Greg’s wish has come true.

Except… not.

When all is said and done, can Greg handle this new version of his wife? Will his irrepressible cantankerousness push her away? Or can the couple find a way forward without either being forced to step back into the shadows?

Happily Ever Ninja is book #5 in the Knitting in the City series. Each book is a standalone, full length (110k words), contemporary romantic comedy novel, and follows the misadventures and exploits of seven friends in Chicago, all members of the same knitting group.
