Blurb: The fairy lights are up and shoppers are flooding the snowy seaside promenade. It’s going to be a busy month at Forget-Me-Not Vintage, a magical shop with a warm heart where every item has a story to be told. With bright red hair and an infectious smile, Dodie is a hopeless romantic and absolutely one of a kind, just like the pieces in her shop. When Dodie finds a love letter in the pocket of an old woollen coat, she makes it her mission to deliver it to its rightful owner. Following the address, she manages to persuade the handsome but reluctant new tenant, Edward, to help her with her search. As the story of the letter unfolds, Dodie is there, as always, to pick up the pieces and make things right. But who will be there for her when her own love story needs a helping hand? Is it too much to dream of a happy ending like the ones in the black and white movies she adores?
“Your Mr Shakespeare knew a thing or two about love. He hit the nail on the head when he wrote, ‘The course of true love never did run smooth.’ No fool, Shakespeare.”
I was quite excited to see that Amanda Quick was coming out with a new book, and one that took place in the 1930s! I wasn’t expecting that setting as Jayne Ann Krentz set her Quick books in the Victorian era, while her JAK books are set in the modern era. I have to say that I love this new setting! It doesn’t seem like the 30s is much explored by authors and it was interesting to see this era through Quick’s writing.
I am joining in with the lovely Lipsy @ Lipsy’s Lost and Found’s feature which highlights our week in books. A similar theme is run by Sam @ Taking On A World of Words.
