The Little Shop of Found Things (The Little Shop of Found Things #1)

The Little Shop of Found Things Book 1

A new series about a young woman whose connection to antiques takes her on a magical adventure, reminiscent of Outlander

New York Times bestselling author of The Witch’s Daughter Paula Brackston returns to her trademark blend of magic and romance to launch a new series guaranteed to enchant her audience even more.

First can we agree this is a beautiful cover. As for the genre, Historical Fiction/Fantasy/Science Fiction/Adult Fiction. Yes, that is a lot but I don’t know what to call it when the setting is present day England but there is a ghost and some time travel involved. All rolled into this wonderful book that I did not stop reading once I started.

Xanthe Westlake and her mother Flora have had a rough time of it in London and have invested their life savings in an antique shop in Marlborough. Determined to make a new life and leave the past behind. Hard to do in an antique shop. Especially as we find out our Xanthe has some pretty awesome gifts.

Sometimes when she touches things she can hear them. Telling the stories of where they have been and what they were. When Xanthe picks up a chatelaine at an estate sale, it is doing more than singing to her. She is having visions and feelings of danger.

When she finds an odd-shaped building in the back garden, exactly where two ley lines converge, she is transported to the 1600’s. When she returns she finds a not so friendly ghost waiting who threatens her and her mothers safety.

Now Xanthe must return to try to save the ghost’s daughter from the gallows. Along the way she meets a gorgeous architect and tries to save Alice and her mother.

The rest you will have to read yourself. I absolutely loved this book and am so glad there will be more of them.

Well Done!
