Lost Property – Helen Paris


Dot Watson has lost her way.

Twelve years ago her life veered off course, and the guilt over what happened still haunts her. Before then she was living in Paris, forging an exciting career; now her time is spent visiting her mother’s care home, fielding interfering calls from her sister and working at the London Transport Lost Property office, diligently cataloguing items as misplaced as herself.

But when elderly Mr Appleby arrives in search of his late wife’s purse, his grief stirs something in Dot. Determined to help, she sets off on a mission – one that could start to heal Dot’s own loss and let her find where she belongs once more . . .


This book was the perfect story to bring me out of my reading slump! It was such a unique setting and interesting backdrop.

The writing style and pace was exactly what I was looking for and I loved the lost property tags!

I absolutely adored Dot’s character and loved following her on her journey. There was some tough subject matter with strong reference to suicide but I believe this was handled well!

A wonderful and ultimately uplifting story of self-discovery.
