Spellbook Of The Lost And Found by Moira Fowley-Doyle
One stormy summer night, Olive and her best friend, Rose, begin to lose things. It starts with simple items like hair clips and jewellery, but soon it's clear that Rose has lost something bigger; something she won't talk about.
Then Olive meets three wild, mysterious strangers: Ivy, Hazel and Rowan. Like Rose, they're mourning losses - and holding tight to secrets.
When they discover the ancient spellbook, full of hand-inked charms to conjure back lost things, they realise it might be their chance to set everything right. Unless it's leading them towards secrets that were never meant to be found.

I give it - 5/5
My review - I don't know what it is about Moira's books that just pull me in and take me on a magical adventure. There is something about her writing that is just so beautiful and just flows that I can never put one of her books down after starting it. Last year I read The Accident Season by Moira and it instantly became one of my favourite books. I was so excited to see she was writing another book and that I got sent an early copy of, which I am so grateful for since this book blew me away.
I have to say, even better than The Accident Season and I didn't think that was possible.
I am so excited to see what she writes next as this book was fantastic. It had me gripped from the beginning and I couldn't put it down once. Each chapter was full of atomsphere and magic and just oh so brilliant. It is a book that I couldn't stop thinking about days after I finished it. I've already re-read it because it was just that good. If you've never read a book by Moira I really suggest that you do. She will grab you in with her writing style and you won't be able to stop until you've finished the story and find out what is happening.
We have a few different POVs in this book and they all have their own personality and I wasn't sure what to expect when reading this book I just knew I wanted to jump in right away and with all the twist and turns and how all the POVs interlinked it was just crazy good. I enjoyed reading about the characters and what they where like through the eyes of Hazel, Laurel and Olive and what those characters where like. Also the diversity among the characters where great!
This book has so many emotions. It deals with family, friendship, grief, romance and so much more and she writes it so well.
A book that had me captivated from the very first page.
