To the outside world, Nicole Wood is a petty thief. Her soon-to-be ex-husband Kent and frustrated family call her a kleptomaniac. She’s been sent to jail numerous times. But while Nicole take things that don’t belong to her, she doesn’t keep them. She is compelled to take items that she senses are out of place within the universe and need relocating. Recently, Nicole has taken something valuable from her husband’s desk and he wants it back. Kent hires Hawk, a private investigator, to track Nicole’s every move. Nicole needs a job and sister Roberta gives her a chance to work in her house-cleaning business. But it doesn’t take long for Nicole to find an item in one of the houses they are cleaning that needs relocating. This one action brings a group of quirky characters into Nicole’s life while her ex-husband is desperate to get what she took back.
Other People’s Things is a lovely, oftentimes humorous, magical book. Author Kerry Anne King has created an inventive story filled with mystery, drama and a sprinkling of romance. Sometimes you need a book where you can suspend reality, sit back and simply enjoy. It captivated me.
Many thanks to Kerry Anne King and Lake Union Publishing for the opportunity to read this wonderful book in advance of its release.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars.
