Book Review: Secrets of Chocolate House (Found Things Book #2)

New York Times bestselling author Paula Brackston’s The Little Shop of Found Things was called “a page-turner that will no doubt leave readers eager for future series installments” (Publishers Weekly). Now, Brackston returns to the Found Things series with its sequel, Secrets of the Chocolate House.
After her adventures in the seventeenth century, Xanthe does her best to settle back into the rhythm of life in Marlborough. She tells herself she must forget about Samuel and leave him in the past where he belongs. With the help of her new friends, she does her best to move on, focusing instead on the success of her and Flora’s antique shop.
But there are still things waiting to be found, still injustices needing to be put right, still voices whispering to Xanthe from long ago about secrets wanting to be shared.
While looking for new stock for the shop, Xanthe hears the song of a copper chocolate pot. Soon after, she has an upsetting vision of Samuel in great danger, compelling her to make another journey to the past.
This time she’ll meet her most dangerous adversary. This time her ability to travel to the past will be tested. This time she will discover her true destiny. Will that destiny allow her to return home? And will she be able to save Samuel when his own fate seems to be sealed?

I received a digital advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Absolutely Captivating! As a huge fan of Brackston, I was super excited to get this arc and it fantastic like all her work! 

Xanthe is one of my favorite literary characters period. 

I really wish I had her abilities. I am an antiquing junkie and I would love something that I connected with to sing to me. It would be so cool!

Brackston is just magical with her storytelling. I loved it and I cannot wait to see what further antics Xanthe gets up to in the future. 

This series is one of my favorites of all times. I highly suggest you dive right into this series immediately!
