The Gift of a Charm by Melissa Hill

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Holly O'Neill knows that every charm bracelet tells a story. Many years ago she was sent one with just a single charm attached. The charms have been appearing ever since, often at challenging times, as if her mysterious benefactor knows exactly when she needs a little magic in her life.

As a result, Holly's bracelet is her most prized possession. So when she finds someone else's charm bracelet, she feels she has to try to reunite it with its owner-even if the only clues she has to follow are the charms themselves.

Goodreads Summary

Here we have a cute mystery about a girl that is trying to make something right in the world. She really loves her charm bracelet holds an appreciation for the time and life experiences that hold meaning behind the charms. So when she finds someone else's bracelet, she makes it her duty to find the owner of this other bracelet.

I love the noble pureness of Holly in this story. It is a rare find to come across someone as pure of heart as her and it was a welcome blessing to read about her journey of good intentions. I though the mystery behind the charms formed an awesome bond with the step by step clue solving nature of the story. I found myself excited about where the journey would take her next in the process of re-tracing the steps of the owner. The author does a great job at instilling the wonder that Holly sees while she is searching. You feel what she feels and experience things through her eyes as if you are living her life.
