The Little Shop of Found Things by Paula Brackston.
New York Times bestselling author of The Witch’s Daughter Paula Brackston returns to her trademark blend of magic and romance guaranteed to enchant in The Little Shop of Found Things, the first book in a new continuing series.
An antique shop haunted by a ghost.
A silver treasure with an injustice in its story.
An adventure to the past she’ll never forget.

Xanthe and her mother Flora leave London behind for a fresh start, taking over an antique shop in the historic town of Marlborough. Xanthe has always had an affinity with some of the antiques she finds. When she touches them, she can sense something of the past they come from and the stories they hold. When she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine she has to know more.

It is while she’s examining the chatelaine that she’s transported back to the seventeenth century where it has its origins. She discovers there is an injustice in its history. The spirit that inhabits her new home confronts her and charges her with saving her daughter’s life, threatening to take Flora’s if she fails.

While Xanthe fights to save the girl amid the turbulent days of 1605, she meets architect Samuel Appleby. He may be the person who can help her succeed. He may also be the reason she can’t bring herself to leave.

I had a wicked stomach ache last night but it’s my fault for eating too many Rice Krispie treats. Gosh, when will I ever learn. It’s detrimental to only have one. I am back to normal feeling better today and even went for a workout at the fitness center. Go me!

  • I’m working on the Christmas Readathon as well as Countdown to Halloween.

  4. I am an October “baby,” too…the 25th. That makes me a Scorpio. My #2 son was born on October 5 (You and he are Libras!). I have a grandson born on October 23. So…


    Enjoy your week…and your birthday. Thanks for visiting my blog.

      Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files are super duper. I hope you get to read them.


  6. I love the Dresden Files books although I’ve only read the first 4 and I’m pretty sure I have a copy of Under the Hat somewhere. Looks like you have some great atmospheric reads for this time of year.

    Wow you’re going to be super busy with all the holiday read-athon! I recently got festive with buying Halloween paper plates and napkins but not holiday themed books. I guess I can pick up a vampire book and it will be my Halloween book?
    I love the cute cover of Little Shop of Found Things.

    Happy reading!

    I’ve only read the Hidden Legacy series by Ilona Andrews, but I love it! I can’t wait for Diamond Fire! I have the audio for the first book in the Magic Bites series, but I haven’t had a chance to read it yet.
