She keeps careful lists of how to help others in her superhero-themed notebook. And yet, sometimes it feels like she's invisible.All of that changes when a book of fairy tales arrives on her doorstep. Inside, Martha finds a dedication written to her by her best friend--her grandmother Zelda--who died under mysterious circumstances years earlier. When Martha discovers a clue within the book that her grandmother may still be alive, she becomes determined to discover the truth. As she delves deeper into Zelda's past, she unwittingly reveals a family secret that will change her life forever.Filled with Phaedra Patrick's signature charm and vivid characters, The Library of Lost and Found is a heartwarming and poignant tale of how one woman must take control of her destiny to write her own happy ending.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

#FirstLine ~ As always, Martha Storm was primed for action.

The Library of Lost and Found was one of those reads that makes your heart happy. It was tender and sweet with a bit a mystery mixed in. It was character driven without being overdone. It was a story where you cannot help but cheer for the main character because they seem so very real and multi-layered. I loved that the story build upon itself slowly. It was paced perfectly. Such a perfect book to curl up and read (maybe in one sitting) when the weather outside urges you to stay in!
