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.

    Ooh, I loved this! This collection of 3 related short stories (written by some of my favorite authors) was fabulous! I loved coming back to the setting of Tangerine Street (introduced in The Fortune Cafe) and I loved the antiques shop (and the histories of the antiques) that tied all of these stories together. I hope we get to continue to read about this quaint little beach community.

  2. It was a pleasure reading these three stories that tie together in a subtle way. The characters are vibrant, the setting is interesting, and the plots are well-rounded. I don’t think I could choose a favorite of the three since I liked them all equally! I love antiques so that theme especially appealed to me. I would love to be in Jennifer’s shoes- running an antique shop where every piece is special and has a story behind it 🙂 As soon as I finished reading this book I immediately bought the first book in the series- The Fortune Cafe, which I also loved! I’m looking forward to more fun stories from these talented authors.

    I like this series of books overall. The idea of the series all happening in one small area and the lives of the characters intertwining through each book, though not the main focus, is enjoyable. I was happy to visit the Fortune Cafe again. I love the magic of the fortunes.

    Message in a Bottle: I liked this story the best of the three. It was about unrequited love but not just romantic love. Yes, Jennifer’s love for Eddie was not returned (thankfully because I didn’t really like him) but also the Aunt’s love of Jennifer isn’t returned either. At least not until it is too late to do anything about it. I liked that Jennifer began to see her aunt in a new light and grew from the changes within her. It is a reminder to not wait to repair relationships with people who should be important to us. At some point it will be too late. I liked her relationship with Mr. Studly whose name cracked me up as well. And I loved the idea of everything having a story.

    Solving for X: Had a harder time with this one mostly because I couldn’t relate to Abbie. I would have a hard time enjoying her in real life if for no other reason than it drives me crazy to have people run on “ish” time. And Holden was so rude and unlikable initially that it took me a while to warm up to him too. I had a hard time seeing their attraction to each other. They are hating on each other one minute and the next he is asking her out. I did enjoy their pen-pal phase. And I liked that Abbie was able to use her creativity, matching it with intelligence to play to her strengths. She was smart. I didn’t like that her default for discomfort was to run away. This one also had some mild language and edgier kissing scenes.

    A Stitch in Time: It would be fascinating to have two people meet and be able to trace their family connection as these two did. Cate and Henry were likable once past their initial meeting even if he turned stupid for a minute. I thought the cousin was a louse. Also had mild language.

    Sex: passionate kisses
    Language: some, mild
    Violence: no
