Title: Aphrodite’s Closet
Author: Suzy Turner
Genre: Chick Lit
Release Date: 7 May 2017
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?

I wasn’t familiar with the author before getting my hands on this book. This story has been a pleasant surprise and I’m glad that I got to read it!
The female lead, Agatha, is so easy to like and love! She’s reserved and kind but also brave and strong, considering her decision to open an adult shop in a small town. Her best friend, Coco, is her exact opposite. It was an absolute delight to see these two interacting; they compliment each other beautifully!
The story flows nicely and it’s really easy to read it. It was really good to see Agatha becoming more confident each day and embrace her self! The book is funny at times but has a dash of mystery as well!
