Review: The Garden of Promises and Lies by Paula Brackston

First of all, I just have to say OMG because I thought that this third book in Paula Brackston’s Found Things series was the final one. And, suddenly, there was a cliffhanger! I’m not sure if I’m extremely ecstatic or extremely sad that I have to wait a longgg time for Xanthe’s story to come to an end. Usually as series go on, the books aren’t as good as the first, but not so with this series. Each book is as good or better than the one before. I definitely suggest reading the books in order. They don’t work as standalones, in my opinion.

Reasons I liked this book:

Time travel told in a unique way.

Antiques, specifically vintage clothes are a focus in book 3.

The blending of historical details with modern times.

Very slow and un-cheesy romance.

Book Quote: Quotes to be added upon book release.

Rating: 5 stars

I received a e-copy of this book from the Netgalley/the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
