Length: Short Story
Story Summary: Ten years have passed since the War, and Hermione is happy with her great job, her wonderful flat, and even her social life. It’s true that her love-life is practically non-existent, but Hermione isn’t particularly bothered by that. Then she meets a new man . . . but just how ‘new’ is he?

Gioia’s Rec:
I’ve noticed that most mysteries seem to present clues in such a way that even when the protagonist misses them, we, the readers, are able to easily see and decipher them long before the big reveal at the end of the story.  That is not the case here.  The author does such a great job of staying so completely within Hermione’s head, that I was just as kerflumuxed as Hermione, unable to figure out what was going on with Snape.  I loved that.
