ShortBookandScribes #PublicationDay #Extract from The Little Shop of Hidden Treasures Part One: Starting Over by Holly Hepburn

It’s publication day today for The Little Shop of Hidden Treasures Part One: Starting Over by Holly Hepburn which sounds absolutely delightful. Congratulations Holly. I have an extract to share with you today, the first two chapters of the book in fact. I do hope you enjoy them.



When Hope loses her husband, she fears her happiest days are behind her. With her only connection to London broken, she moves home to York to be near her family and to begin to build a new life.

Taking a job at the antique shop she has always admired, she finds herself crossing paths with two very different men. Will, who has recently become the guardian to his niece after the tragic death of his parents. And Ciaran, who she enlists to help solve the mystery of an Egyptian antique. Two men who represent two different happy endings.

But can Hope trust herself to choose the right man? And will that bring her everything she really needs?

Holly Hepburn has wanted to write books for as long she can remember but she was too scared to try. One day she decided to be brave and dipped a toe into the bubble bath of romantic fiction with her first novella, Cupidity, and she’s never looked back. She often tries to be funny to be funny, except for when faced with traffic wardens and border control staff. Her favourite things are making people smile and Aidan Turner.

She’s tried many jobs over the years, from barmaid to market researcher and she even had a brief flirtation with modelling. These days she is mostly found writing.

She lives near London with her grey tabby cat, Portia. They both have an unhealthy obsession with Marmite.
