The Boardwalk Antiques Shop by Julie Wright, Melanie Jacobson and Heather B. Moore


Synopsis:

Welcome to Tangerine Street

Tangerine Street is a must-see tourist stop with a colorful mix of one-of-a-kind boutiques, unique restaurants, eclectic museums, quaint bookstores, and renowned bed-and-breakfasts. The Boardwalk Antiques Shop is an exclusive shop where every antique has a story, and each story possesses the gift to match true love. The customer who buys an antique also buys its story and soon discovers that its story unites the past with the present, creating an unexpected romantic future…

“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. But the more Jennifer gets to know Paul Studly, the more she finds reasons to stay and run the antiques shop herself.

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: 4.5 Stars 

Okay... I am just going to start out by saying I want MORE! Lol. Each of these stories would make an amazing full length novel and I would be the first in line to buy each one of them! ;) The only problem I have with novellas is they just aren't long enough! Just as you start to get invested in the story... BAM! It's over! *sigh* I really try to stay away from them but when you have 3 amazing authors like Julie, Melanie and Heather, you just CAN'T stay away! They provide the perfect little getaway from this thing called LIFE! ;)

Message In A Bottle 

Jennifer has spent most of her life trying to avoid her Aunt Daisy. She thinks that Daisy doesn't understand her and that she doesn't like her much. But when Daisy passes away and leaves her Antiques Shop to Jennifer she can't help but wonder why. She plans to go to California, sell it and then be back in Oregon as quickly as she can. She knows there is nothing there that will make her want to stay in California and run her aunt's shop. Que realtor, Paul Studly, a mysterious message in a bottle and the history behind each and every piece in Daisy's shop. Maybe Daisy knew just what Jennifer needed after all.

Solving For X

Abbie is obsessed with antiques and even though she is running out of room in her small home, she is determined to get the little tin soldiers she sees in the window display. Out-of-town Holden sees the same tin soldiers and he is also determined to get them as well. Jennifer decides that the one to come up with the best story would be the new owner of the soldiers. When more than just the tin soldiers bring Abbie and Holden together, will Abbie continue to run from him or will she finally see that not all corporate suits are the same and that it's okay to take a chance on love? Will Holden continue to see only business deal after business deal or will he see that there is more to life and take that same chance on love?

A Stitch In Time

Cate was traveling for work when her grandmother passed away and she ended up missing her funeral. The one and only thing she wanted was her grandma's antique sewing machine. Her snobby cousin ends up selling it to an antiques dealer, Henry, and Cate will do anything to get it back from him. When Cate and Henry finally meet sparks fly and there is an instant connection between them. But that doesn't mean that it's all smooth sailing for these two... outside forces are at play and are trying to keep them apart. But as we know any HEA is worth fighting for... ;)
