The Secret of Lost Things by Sheridan Hay

In this charming novel about the eccentricities and passions of booksellers and collectors, a captivating young Australian woman takes a job at a vast, chaotic emporium of used and rare books in New York City and finds herself caught up in the search for a lost Melville manuscript.

This book has an absolutely wonderful cast of eccentric and odd characters, which make the story much more entertaining. The story moved a little slow at times for me, but was ultimately an enjoyable book. 3.5 stars
