“Where Every Antique has a Story”
MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE: Jennifer is newest owner of The Boardwalk Antiques Shop, inherited from her aunt. When Jennifer arrives in Seashell Beach, her first priority is to meet with a realtor to sell the place. She laughs out loud when she discovers the realtor’s name is Mr. Studly.

SOLVING FOR X: Abbie is only a little bit obsessed with antiques, okay, a lot. So when Holden, an out-of-town business executive, tries to purchase the tin soldiers that Abbie’s had her eye on, Abbie refuses to back down. The antiques shop owner issues a challenge: whoever comes up with the best story for wanting the soldiers, will become the new owner. Abbie isn’t about to let some fancy executive beat her out, no matter how charming he is.
A STITCH IN TIME: When Cate learns that antiques dealer Henry Lancaster has purchased the sewing machine left to her by her grandmother, Cate is determined to get it back. What she isn’t counting on is that Henry has just as much claim as Cate. And it doesn’t help that Henry is good-looking and apparently single. Getting to know Henry becomes an unexpected surprise, sending her life into a sudden detour.

My Review:5 out of 5 stars
I didn't read The Fortune Cafe before this book, so I was a bit confused on some of the story lines hinted at in these stories. However, the character's stories featured in this anthology easily stood on their own. The way they interacted and were connected was very cool to read. It was a very unique approach to an anthology. If you've read The Newport Ladies Book Club series, you will enjoy this collection. Two of the Newport authors return, Julie Wright and Heather Moore, with a great new addition in author Melanie Jacobsen. I'd never read her books before, but after getting to know her spunky character, I'm excited to read more from this talented author.
This collection would be ideal for fans of sweet romances, and the short stories are great to fit in when there is little time to read.
