The Village of Lost and Found
Brand NEW from the bestselling author of The Village Shop For Lonely Hearts.
Scandal hit party girl Lucy Conway needs to leave London fast, so she packs her bags and escapes to the sleepy village of Cranbridge to take care of her beloved Uncle Frank.
But the country village isn’t quite as idyllic as she remembers. To make matters worse, her Uncle’s pride and joy, The Cranbridge Times, is close to going out of business.
Editor-at-Large Tom Addison is having a crisis of confidence and needs help if the newspaper is going to survive.
With time on her hands, can Lucy work some magic and together save the family newspaper?
Over a long, hot summer, friendships are made and hearts begin to heal. And, with the help of a stray dog, perhaps Lucy and Tom can find their very own new beginning…
The Village of Lost and Found is the second book in the Riverside Lane series, and after reading the first instalment I couldn’t wait to dive in to this novel. I will also say that although it is part of a series you can certainly read this book as a standalone novel too.
Lucy Conway finds herself as front page news when it comes to light that the man she has been dating is in fact a married man. something of which she wasn’t aware of. When her parents find out, they cannot hide their embarrassment of their whimsical daughter, and decide to send her to stay with her Uncle. This is something that Lucy is rather happy about, as her childhood memories of her beloved Uncle Frank are filled with happiness, and as she is in much need of some time to heal and move forward with her life, this feels like the perfect scenario.
Whilst Lucy is staying with her Uncle, she begins helping out at the local newspaper which her Uncle owns. The newspaper is being managed by Tom Addison – a man who is also trying to allow the bruises of his past to heal. When Lucy and Tom meet, there is a spark between them instantly, but with both of them trying to recover from their past’s, they are understandably reluctant to allow their heart to open up for anyone else.
This book was such a delight to read and offered me the escapism I so desperately crave right now. I love the authors writing style and the ways in which she brings the setting to life beautifully for the reader. The storyline itself was heart warming and really reeled me in from the start and kept me well and truly engrossed until the very end. The characters are wonderful and loveable, and i adore the ways in which they have their own stories to share as the book progresses. Lucy is such a lovely character who you feel a connection to instantly. Tom is equally likeable, and as we learn more about him and his own obstacles to overcome, he also secures a place in your heart.
Beautifully written, truly heart warming with an enchanting storyline. It is impossible to not fall in love with this book.
