I’m sucker for antique shops and history. The heroine (eponymously named Rebecca H. Hale) inherits an antique shop specializing in the gold rush era from her mysterious uncle Oscar in San Francisco where much of the series is set. Hale intersperses real places and historical nuggets into the narrative with a wild bunch of characters connected to old uncle Oscar which helps bring the adventures alive.
