Book Description: Librarian Martha Storm has always found it easier to connect with books than people–though not for lack of trying. 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.

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I thought this book sounded intriguing, and it also worked for one of my challenges to read a book about a library or librarian!

Overall this book was a fun read, it had mystery, a little romance, and some good family drama. I liked that you got a quick background in the beginning on what Martha was like; a very big people pleaser, doing this for others only and not anything for herself. You learn more about this as the story goes on and you find out more about her family and her life. Then you get the mystery when she receives a book that is signed by her “dead” grandma! So right then you are hooked with thinking what the heck happened?! I won’t go into too much detail or it will spoil the surprise.

I thought the main character was well written. You really got the feel for why she was the way she was and you got to follow along on her journey of how she grew from this experience with getting the book and how it changed her. The supporting characters were pretty well done. You didn’t have a lot of background on all, but on some you did like Zelda you got to see her story as well throughout the book.

The plot was pretty well written, it flowed nicely, I think I wanted a little more suspense or something just a little bit more, maybe even a little more to the romance aspect of the book. I thought overall though it was a fun read and it kept me entertained and wanting to find out more.
