The Boardwalk Antiques Shop by Julie Wright, Melanie Jacobson and Heather B. Moore

Boardwalk Antiques Shop
A Tangerine Street Romance
(a novel in three parts)

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.

Other books in the Tangerine Street Romance series: The Fortune Café

 * Amazon * Goodreads *

I was super - dee- duper excited to get my hands on this book to review.  I knew it was coming out and hoped I would get the chance to pick it up.  The first book in the series, The Fortune Cafe, was awesome.  I knew this one would be good too- just look at the authors!  :)  Three of my favorites.

All three of these books are just fun to read.  Sweet, clean, witty, light romances.  I love how they all revolve around the antique shop and the first book starts at the very beginning of it all.  I also love how the Fortune Cafe is still in the books, playing a role in the lives of new characters.  It made me feel at home with old friends while getting to know new ones.  It's a great idea and a great series and I love it.  I got my happily ever after fix three times over in one book!  I'm excited to see where on Tangerine Street the stories will take me next.  Maybe the cupcake bakery or the candy shop?

There are a couple instances of mild swearing, which were completely unnecessary I thought.  It actually surprised me a bit as I wasn't expecting it.  But, anyway, there it is.  My content head's up if you like to know things like that.

My thanks to Heather Moore for providing a review copy and allowing me to read and review this book.  :)


  1. I had to come see what the cover art looked like when I caught that title! How perfect it is! This sounds like such fun. I like following a familiar setting and enjoy how each story focuses on another part of it with new characters. It sounds like you could read the series as stand alones if you chose to.I live in s small coastal town and could see our local boardwalk in these. Sounds delightful and thanks so much for introducing me to a new author.

    1. I'm glad you stopped by! I hope you'll be able to read this book and I mostly hope you love it like me. It made me wish I lived in a small coastal town! Lucky you!
