Synopsis: Agatha Trout didn’t even know she had a Great Aunt Petunia, so imagine her surprise when she finds Petunia left her a corner shop in her will. But it’s not just any old corner shop—it’s a corner shop that needs something unique, something the town of Frambleberry has never seen before. Influenced by her confident best friend, Coco, Agatha is soon convinced that there’s only one way to go: an adults-only sex shop. While some of the townspeople are clutching their pearls in horror, others are open to the new experiences this shop offers. But not everyone in Frambleberry is convinced. Will the women soldier on in the face of violent threats or will their fears get the best of them—and their new venture—before it even gets off the ground?

My thoughts

This book is truly delightful. It’s got warmth, romance, humour and even a little bit of mystery. Aggie inherits a store from her late great aunt Petunia and together with best friend Coco and her sister decide to open up an adult store. However not everyone is happy and someone keeps trying to sabotage the store and get it closed down. 

I read this in one evening whilst stuck in a hotel in Middlesbrough, working away from home. It’s such a sweet thing thing and took my mind off being away from family for a week. I was able to transport myself into the naughty shop and what sounded like the most beautiful Victorian building. I seriously want to move into the property!

I loved all the characters. I loved their tenacity in face of danger and the mysterious incidents in the shop. It’s just so lovingly written that you can’t help but enjoy it. I’ve not read any of Suzy Turners books before this but I have already added her other books to my tbr pile based on this one.
