    Summary

    He shoves his hands into the pockets of his coat as he makes his way towards the neighborhood where Joe and his research assistant will be living for the next four months, and steadfastly tries not to think about how the contact file on his phone that used to read "Dr. Yusuf Al-Kaysani (Jerusalem)" now simply reads "Joe". Or how there is now a photo attached to that contact file, which means whenever Joe calls him Nicolò’s phone screen lights up with a selfie of Joe in a backwards baseball cap on a sunny day somewhere in Bloomsbury.

     

    In which Nicky reaches an understanding with God and leaves the priesthood for love.

    Summary

    He’s two weeks into his search when he sees the advertisement, small and unassuming, tucked away in the back of the local newspaper. “Andromache Restoration seeks furniture restoration specialist,” it says, and provides a mailing address to which applicants can send a portfolio. Nicky pauses, coffee cup halfway to his mouth, more than a little stunned by the opportunity. He knows of Andromache Restoration—knows the artists there from the work they’ve done across London, the paintings cleaned and repaired, the ceramics restored from broken pieces, the metalwork reforged.

    Summary

    “It was Jackson’s idea,” Lydia explains, looking perfectly serious while standing in front of a March Madness bracket of Beacon Hills’ eligible bachelors.

    Jackson looks smug. “It only makes sense.”

    Stiles meets Isaac’s eyes over the heads of all the crazy people in the room. Isaac shrugs with a slight wince. “’Tis the season.”
