The Village of Lost and Found is the latest release from Alison Sherlock, bestselling author of the Willow Tree Hall books. Alison enjoyed reading and writing stories from an early age and gave up office life to follow her dream. Her new series for Boldwood is set in a fictional Cotswold Village. The Village of Lost and Found is the second title in The Riverside Lane series.
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 one of those books that’s a lovely, feel good, uplifting read. It’s one that if you are having a bad day, you can read to escape the world and it will not fail to bring a smile to your face.
Alison does not disappoint with this book. The village of Cranbridge is idyllic, it’s a place we’d definitely move to. And you get so caught up in life in the village and its inhabitants that you feel sad when the book ends and you have to leave them behind. The plot sees the village inhabitants work together to save the village from the threat of the development of a quarry. You can really feel the community spirit and feel as if you are there alongside them.
While this is the second book of the series it can be read alone and is just as magical and lovely as if you’d read the first book in the series, The Village Shop for Lonely Hearts. Which after reading this you will definitely feel compelled to read more of Alison Sherlock’s heartwarming stories.
