FROM A USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR comes a heartwarming mystery that is rich with imagination and magic. In Previously Loved Treasures, Book Two of The Serendipity Series, recently widowed Ida Sweetwater finds the granddaughter she never knew she had and turns a group of haphazard strangers into family. Struggling to make ends meet, Ida turns her cozy home into a boarding house and goes in search of used furniture. This quest leads to the Previously Loved Treasures shop and Peter Pennington, a delightfully strange proprietor who anticipates people's needs. In addition to bargains, Peter hands out sage advice. When a pocket watch belonging to one of the residents goes missing for a second time he warns of danger-but will Ida's granddaughter listen and will she heed his advice? This is a story that resonates with Crosby's heartwarming albeit quirky characters and the joy of a pay-it-forward philosophy.

About the author (2014)

USA Today Best Selling Author Bette Lee Crosby brings the wit and wisdom of her Southern Mama to works of fiction-the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." Crosby's work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. Since then, she has gone on to win numerous other awards, including The Reviewer's Choice Award, FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal and The Royal Palm Literary Award. Her published novels to date are: Cracks in the Sidewalk (2009), Spare Change (2011), The Twelfth Child (2012), Cupid's Christmas (2012), What Matters Most (2013), Jubilee's Journey (2013), and Previously Loved Treasures (2014). She has also authored "Life in the Land of IS" a memoir of Lani Deauville, a woman the Guinness Book of Records lists as the world's longest living quadriplegic.
