Aphrodite’s Closet – Suzy Turner

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 review

This book was a pleasant surprise. It was funny and the author made it an even more lovely read by adding a pinch of suspense to the mix.

The story is about turning your life around, leaving the past in the past, family, forgiveness and a nice dose of romance.

Who would not like to have such a quirky great aunt? And yes, sometimes you fall out with someone, but it takes two to tango, doesn’t it?

I had a nice time spending it with Aggie and her friends and family. 4 stars

Thank you, Suzy Turner and RachelsRandomResources.
