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. 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. So when she has an intense connection to a beautiful silver chatelaine she has to know more. It's while she's examining the chatelaine that she's transported back to the seventeenth century. And shortly after, she's confronted by a ghost who reveals that this is where the antique has its origins. The ghost tasks Xanthe with putting right the injustice in its story to save an innocent girl's life, or else it'll cost her Flora's. While Xanthe fights to save her 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. With its rich historical detail, strong mother-daughter relationship, and picturesque English village, The Little Shop of Found Things is poised to be a strong start to this new series.… (mere)

This was a fun book. Twist on the Outlander idea but with a mystery added in. Will seek the next in the series but not rushing to get to it. ( )

Nice read but so much detail. ( )

After leaving London for a fresh start, Xanthe runs an antique store in Marlborough with her mother, Flora. Xanthe finds herself feeling a connection to the people that owned the items that they offer for sale in the shop. Then it becomes more than just a feeling....she touches one item and finds herself transported back to 1605. A ghost demands Xanthe's help with righting an injustice.

This book is such a nice blend of supernatural, mystery and romance. It's a bit like Outlander meets antique-ing. I found the plot creative and interesting...I didn't want to stop reading! This book is a nice start to a new series. I can't wait to find out what object might send Xanthe back into the past in the next book!

Paula Brackston is the author of several other books including The Witch's Daughter series. The Little Shop of Found Things is the first book by Brackston that I have read. I'm definitely going to check out her other books!

What an amazing book! I absolutely love time travel books and “The Little Shop of Found Things” is a beautiful book, from front to back, literally - the cover is stunning and would have caught my eye in a New York minute, if I saw it on the shelf!

I received this book from a Goodreads giveaway by St. Martin’s Press and these are my unbiased opinions.

I love these characters so much. The book has depth and surprises; I love a traditional time travel path that many books follow, but I love and appreciate when there are surprises and unexpected happenings.

I realized about a third of the way in, that I really care for these characters and wanted to see them happy. That’s rare, for me to feel so strongly about that when I read a book. I’m often amused by and like the characters, but don’t often feel so invested. Quite simply, I saw them as beautifully real people.

It was a pleasure to see Xanthe, the main character, grow in confidence and self-assuredness throughout the book. A testament to the author, Paula Brackston, to not just tell us as readers that that was happening, but rather to show us, in so many ways. What a beautiful book and oh, do I ever hope for a sequel! :) Thank you to all who had a part in this wonderful story! Y’all rock! ( )
