Aphrodite’s Closet by Suzy Turner

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour for this unique and wonderful book. Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.


Agatha Trout didn’t even know she had a Great Aunt Petunia, so imagine her surprise when she finds Petunia left her a corner shop in her will. But it’s not just any old corner shop—it’s a corner shop that needs something unique, something the town of Frambleberry has never seen before.
Influenced by her confident best friend, Coco, Agatha is soon convinced that there’s only one way to go: an adults-only sex shop.

While some of the townspeople are clutching their pearls in horror, others are open to the new experiences this shop offers. But not everyone in Frambleberry is convinced. Will the women soldier on in the face of violent threats or will their fears get the best of them—and their new venture—before it even gets off the ground?


This book was fantastic! I’ve read books before where someone inherits a shop from a relative, but this one really is unique, and that’s what drew me to it.

Agatha inherits a beautiful corner shop and wants to create something that Frambleberry doesn’t already have. She’s a bit of a prude and easily embarrassed, but after a bit of persuasion from her best friend, she opens an adult shop.

The result is a source of both great humourous moments, and great intrigue, as someone doesn’t want this shop in Frambleberry, and will go to great lengths to stop it.

There are wonderful characters in this book. I loved Aggie and her friend Coco, and Aggie’s mum was so well drawn. She’s a bit of a pillar of the community, and not one to approve of that sort of thing, but she does have a heart of gold.

There’s a mystery involving the person who wants the shop to close. There’s some scandal in the town about it opening, but who would go to such extremes to see the shop fail? It’s a real page-turner.

Great characters, lots of humour, and a bit of intrigue thrown in, make this a pleasure to read. Just the thing to make you smile.
