The Little Shop of Found Things is a delightful time-travel novel! I had not read Paula Brackston before so I didn’t know that she usually writes stories about witches, sorcery and time travel. I was just looking for a new book to request and the description for this one sounded a little different than my usual and a little quirky too and here I am reviewing it:)
At first I was skeptical that I would even finish it because ghosts don’t really work for me (not really a spoiler – the ghost shows up very early on), but I’m glad I kept reading! This story has a true dual timeline with a time-traveling main character which is a little reminiscent of The Outlander (but shorter and with less violence and sex). There are mother-daughter relationships, 17th century life, potential love interests in different centuries, and the antique business to explore. It appears this is meant to be the first in a series and I’m already looking forward to reading the next one!
I received a free advance Kindle copy of The Little Shop of Found Things from NetGalley so that I could provide an honest review of it. It will be released on October 2, 2018.
