Review: Secrets of the Chocolate House

Secrets of the Chocolate House by Paula Brackston
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Found Things series by Paula Brackston. Xanthe discovers an antic copper chocolate pot that sings to her. Xanthe has a secret, she can travel in time with the help of objects that sing to her. In the first book, she travelled to the 17th century and met Samuel. It broke her heart to leave him and returned to her time, but her sickly mother needs her and she had to choose between him and her. The chocolate pot brings her back to the 17th century to save Samuel from a great danger. She still has feelings for Samuel and it will not be easy to meet him again but she must if she is to help him.

In the second book, Xanthe will discover more about her gift and her destiny. She will also encounter a man with similar abilities to her who will become a dangerous adversary.
