"Nowhere to be Found" by Emily Thomas

About this book:

  “While converting the Victorian home left by her great-aunt Edie into a library, Anne Gibson stumbles upon a fascinating find. Hidden behind an old star quilt is a tiny sealed-off room with a small writing desk and a faded photograph of Edie in a wedding gown. Anne is certain Aunt Edie never married, so who is the handsome young man with her in the photograph? Could he still hold claim to the house bequeathed to Anne?
  As Anne sets out to solve the mystery, she makes delightful new friends and runs into old ones - including a high school sweetheart who might not be happy that the woman who broke his heart is back in town.”

My personal Rating-
This really was such a cute book! Not truly a heavy mystery (no murder at all) and it was so enjoyable. This cover is adorable (cuter in person ;)) and this really was such a nice, relaxing read.  

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.


  1. This book looks really cute! Adding it to my "to-read" list :)

  2. This book is not available from Amazon. Only third party sellers that are used. Any ideas?

    1. Hello!
      A weird thing about Guidepost books is that they don't technically have ISBN numbers, so it's harder to find them! I know has a couple copies available, if you don't mind used. Thriftbooks also has a copy for sale. I've had the best luck getting Guidepost books via PBS, though, by just searching the title.
      Good luck! :)

    2. I have also seen the series many times on EBay. :)

  3. Is this a series that should be read in order? I have books 4 and 5, and I was considering buying this one. :)

    1. Hi Faith!
      It doesn't necessarily have to be read in order, since they're all stand-alone mysteries about the same group of people. That said, they do sometimes mention the past mysteries and the first book sets up the rest of the series well. :)
