‘Of Quests, Firefighters, and Reluctant Witches’ By J.M. Rhineheart

Millie hasn’t been a witch in a swamp for a long time. She offers wifi and fresh baked goods to those who visit her bookshop, and that’s just the way she likes it. That is, until knights start tumbling into her shop, one after another, asking for her help with a quest to find a missing princess.

It isn’t until a firefighter comes in, a quest missive of his own in hand, that she discovers there might actually be a missing persons case after all. Between the two of them, Millie thinks there’s a good chance of finding the girl, but she might have to call on the one thing she hasn’t used in years to do it: her magic.
