Review: The Keeper of Lost Things

written by Ruth Hogan.

When it comes to choosing my next book to read, I always without a doubt get drawn in by what it looks like. I know the old saying asks you to not judge a book by what you see, but what else do we have when we enter a book shop but to peruse what is on the shelves and I do love a pretty front cover.

And this book was no different.

I instantly loved the way the book looked, it drew me in and I read the synopsis and knew that this would be my type of book.

I wasn’t wrong.

The story introduces us to the wonderfully charming Anthony who we discover is the keeper of all lost items. We discover what makes him tick and delve deep into his character, making him all the more lovable. Everything he finds is meticulously labelled with the correct information regarding where it was found and the date. Items such as umbrella’s, teacups and lost gloves are just some of the items he finds over time, adding each one to his itinerary. He entrusts the help of his faithful friend and housekeeper, Laura to try to reintroduce lost items to their owners.

Throughout the pages we are introduced to some wonderful characters, some lovable and some not so much; each one bringing their own interesting part to this magical, mysterious and enchanting story.

The writing is beautifully put together and I lapped each page up hungrily, reading the whole book in a couple of days.  The whole story comes together beautifully and there are some lovely plot surprises as you read along. There were also some emotional parts which had me shed a tear or two.

Overall this was a really good book. The story was well paced and had a lovely engaging feel about it. I felt like I loved Anthony and Laura from the start – I enjoyed how different all of the characters were, with Sunshine forever being one of my favourite.

I would 100% recommend this book.
