The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street
Thirty-two-year-old Daisy Turner has worked at Buchanan’s Family Jewellers since the day she finally escaped her troubled home. With a unique talent for matching the perfect piece of jewellery to any romantic milestone, she painstakingly polishes each stunning creation every morning and safely locks them away each night, longing for the day she’ll have a love story to call her own… But everything changes one day in December when the owner announces she is retiring. She will leave the shop to whichever of her three sons creates the perfect piece of Christmas jewellery for Daisy. In danger of losing the job that once saved her, Daisy is catapulted out of her comfort zone as each of the brothers sweeps her off her feet to find out what her heart truly desires. Between ice-skating, starlight shopping and cosy candle-lit dinners, it’s only handsome and guarded youngest brother Kit who really seems to be listening. Because Daisy has a secret.

But as the brothers present their elaborate gemstone masterpieces, she’s in for the shock of her life… Was Kit using her to get ahead in the competition all along? Or has he truly worked out the one thing she has always longed for?

The job was a true blessing because at that time Daisy lost her grandmother, who had raised her after her parents died. Daisy excels at her job, but when the her boss announces her impending retirement, Daisy's future is now uncertain.Daisy's future now lies in the hands of one of the boss's three sons. Whichever of them can create the perfect piece of jewelry for Daisy is the one who will inherit the store. Each son must spend time getting to know her, and this is something Daisy is not comfortable with.Meanwhile, Daisy is holding a secret very close to her heart. She excels at her own craft of jewelry making. When a man enters a shop to seek out a gift for his love, Daisy begins to wonder if she herself will ever find that elusive gift. Between this stranger and Daisy's unique skills as a designer, her life starts looking up.One of the brothers, Kit, affects her in an odd way. They have worked together for years, and Daisy had very little respect for his work ethic. All of that changes as she spends time with Kit and his brothers. Each time is a separate day, and these days really open Daisy's eyes.I absolutely loved this story! I think what I loved most was the fact that there was no doubt that Daisy would fall for at least one of the brothers. The path that she went on was very enlightening. Very heartwarming. I absolutely loved this book and the ending was a true delight.I adore Emma Davies! Her writing is absolutely wonderful. When I see her name, I jump on her books. I knew even before page one that I would truly be entertained. The very first book I read by her, The Little Cottage on the Hill, I thought was just perfect. This book gives me exactly that same feeling. I am eager to read her future books as well.Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

The ink flowed smoothly in her words, there was nary a hitch where the lines felt abrupt. Everything seemed to be stringed like poetry. The characters were strong, their personalities came through. Each one was endearing and felt like family.It was Daisy who caught my eye with her quiet ways. Her longing for a family resonated in my heart. Her emotions were a force to reckon with as they hit me passionately. She was complex enough to make the book interesting and simple enough to understand and love her. She was real, like you and me.Emma's book was a pocket of joy as her words uplifted me, gave me hope and thawed my cold heart in ways that had me dancing with joy. It was a wonderful read on a lazy afternoon when life felt difficult, but the book made the few hours peaceful.

The run up to Christmas can be such a magical time but for Daisy it also is a time for a lot of reflection as her job is under threat. There arn’t many of us who love what we do but Daisy puts her heart and soul into her job and she is an absolute asset for it.Daisy is in for a bit of a bumpy ride as she is thrown out of her comfort zone and what follows is a story that was so engrossing that I lost all sense of time.The Little Shop On Silver Linings Street is just the perfect reading companion. It welcomes you like an old friend and pulls you in for a warm hug. It entertains and was such an endearing read with a fabulous cast of characters. A book to be read and loved, over and over again.My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

    Let me start out by saying I LOVED this book, from the tie-in to The House at Hope Corner and The Beekeeper’s Cottage to the lovely portrayal of the very (at first) buttoned-up Daisy, who seemed to exist in a small, contained box. But the owner of Buchanan’s, the jewelry store in which Daisy works has a plan: she has three sons to take over the business when she retires to Spain with her new love. This isn’t a straightforward process, however, as she has made it clear that each of her sons must spend a dayI Let me start out by saying I LOVED this book, from the tie-in to The House at Hope Corner and The Beekeeper’s Cottage to the lovely portrayal of the very (at first) buttoned-up Daisy, who seemed to exist in a small, contained box. But the owner of Buchanan’s, the jewelry store in which Daisy works has a plan: she has three sons to take over the business when she retires to Spain with her new love. This isn’t a straightforward process, however, as she has made it clear that each of her sons must spend a day with Daisy, getting to know her, and to choose (either made or self-designed) a piece of jewelry to suit her, making sure they know why their choice is the perfect one. The winner will be chosen by both Bea and Daisy, and they shall run the shop. The whole concept has Daisy tied in knots. She’s a creature of routine, with few possessions and fewer ‘daring’ genes. Sure, she had her reasons, and some very specific peculiarities that seemed to contradict her working in an upscale jewelry shop, selling expensive and showy pieces for the past eight years – but this only served to highlight her very unique outlook on the world, and made her imagination and skills all that more astounding when they are finally revealed. And each day with the sons, first with Bertie the “fun loving’ son who is the peacemaker between the brothers, and currently managing the books. We see his efforts to put Daisy at ease and challenge her limited ‘choices’, from food to drinks to even enjoying a fun fair at a Christmas market. Always gentle and attuned to her every emotion, she and Bertie had time to chatter and discover one another, and her pointed questions about materialism and purpose left him thinking. Second day was with Lawrence – the bullying, snobbish and highly strung eldest brother – one who wants always to win, when things he desires are not handed to him. Their day was as expected – a trip to Harrods where he tried, and failed, to gain advantage through a series of tricks – from walking her through the fine jewelry section to grilling a specific “personal shopper” for advice. While Daisy and the shopper, Monique, got on beautifully, the information Lawrence was able to use was slim – and left Daisy on the verge of migraine. Lastly we have Kit, the constant ‘shop assistant’ that Daisy feels is lazy and uninterested. Kit’s always had his own agenda that doesn’t match with others, and when a holiday wreath making class brings Daisy to Hope Flower Farm, and her idea to mix jewelry and a wreath are born, it also opens up a whole world of confidence in her own design and abilities. With Flora, Grace, and Amos all cheering her on and expressing delight in her work, and a commission from a random Instagram message all allow her to start speaking her mind, discovering Kit in a new light, and sharing her own rough childhood experience with him – the story takes shape. Still unsteady on her feet, Daisy isn’t prone to trusting anyone, and when a slip of the tongue has her believing that Kit was “cheating” to get an advantage in the competition – she’s devastated. This is, like many of Davies’ stories, a bit of a slow burn with the main character finding their own sense of purpose and unleashing their potential in ways unexpected, and with plenty of sideline cheerleading from the folks at the flower farm. Daisy’s comfort in her own home, her own safe little box, and the need to feel safe and content with what she has are paramount to her well-being, but it is her imagination and ability to translate her own romantic sensibilities into the perfect items for everyone she encounters that allows the story to sing. Her childhood put her into a state of constant watchfulness, allowing her to translate often vague statements into their essence – and bring the ‘perfect’ option to each person she encounters. With plenty of twists, lots of encouragement and a dash of love that is so perfectly placed one can’t help but smile, this story brings the magic and possibility of the season alight, and allows Daisy to blossom into all that she will become – with plenty of new friends and support along the way. A favorite for sure, and one that serves as a lovely introduction to those unfamiliar with this author -trust me, if this is your first by Emma Davies, it most certainly won’t be your last. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

It is such a warm hug of a book, really cosy, with a lovely story at the heart of it, a sprinkle of Christmas magic, a few interesting days out, getting to know three very different brothers, and also Daisy' s secret past as a well as her soon to be no so secret talents too. Daisy has a simple life, does the same thing every day, likes things just as they are, is possibly an even fussier eater than me (which does give me great hope that I'm not utterly hopeless), and generally regards uchanan's as her life saving job, having worked there since the age of 17. She may not be the biggest fan of the sorts of expensive jewellery that she sells there, but she is a romantic at heart, and loves hearing all the different love stories, as she tries to pair the perfect piece to the perfect partner, even if it may not be the best option for the shops profit margins. However this December everything changes when Bea, the owner of Buchanan's announces her intention to retire at the end of the year, and is running a competition between her 3 incredibly different sons to see which one will get the business. And Daisy is at the heart of it as they each have to come up with the perfect present for her, and Bea will judge on Christmas Eve. I really enjoyed seeing the three brothers bicker amongst themselves, the way that Daisy attempted to spend a day with each of them, marvelling at Daisy's integrity, while also incredibly interested not only in that story line but the far more creative one, that means fans of Emma Davies this year were treated to glimpses of Flora and Ned, and Grace and Amos from her other releases this year. I won't go into details on that section as frankly I enjoyed not knowing in advance, and discovering for myself but to say its integral to everything seems fair. Amos yet again even in the small ways he was present was a fabulous addition to the book. This though is 100% a standalone story, and if you weren't aware of the previous book connections, you wouldn't even notice them, but its more a nice addition for the authors fans.And the brothers, wow just how different are they, I really wasn't sure how things would turn out, but I had a massive massive smile on my face by the end of the book, it was just perfect. An utterly charming, sweet, cosy romance, guaranteed to warm the hardest of hearts this Christmas and filled me with great hope too. Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    This was a cute little story and the characters were well thought out and written beautifully but I just couldn't find myself that bothered about the man characters, Kit and Daisy. I was interested in Bertie's story and would love him to have a love story of his own.It was quite predictable with its direction but a nice little read when you need something lighter. Still a huge fan of Emma Davies although I've yet to find anything of hers that I like as much as her debut. 3 stars.

    Daisy has worked at Buchanan's since the tender age of 17, given a job in a time of need by the loving, yet ever theatrical, Bea. Working there is her lifeline, a routine that brings her comfort, and allows her to exercise her natural talent at seeing what people need, not just what they want. And being able to hear the stories behind these gifts is the icing on the cake as far as Daisy is concerned. But all of that looks to change when Bea announces her plans to retire, and life gets even trick Daisy has worked at Buchanan's since the tender age of 17, given a job in a time of need by the loving, yet ever theatrical, Bea.

And being able to hear the stories behind these gifts is the icing on the cake as far as Daisy is concerned. But all of that looks to change when Bea announces her plans to retire, and life gets even trickier when Bea decides to have a competition to decide which of her 3 sons should inherit the shop - a competition focused on them getting to know Daisy...‘Buchanan’s was a place where magic still happened, where young lovers bought rings to cement their union, or where grey-haired men came in search of something to tell their wives, I’m still in love with you, even after all these years...’I cannot agree with our leading lady more - Buchanan’s truly is a place where magic happens. From the synopsis of the novel, I expected a sweet enough book of three brothers competing to woo a young girl. What I got instead was a truly beautiful novel, based on characters that are so vivid you cannot help but fall for them. Daisy in particular was a true marvel, and I adored her instantly. Being able to watch as Daisy slowly comes out of her shell and begins to engage with the wider world was truly beautiful to behold.'I don't want to sell people trinkets and baubles, I want to sell them memories, and friendship, time spent with family... I think people need good times in their lives, maybe now more than ever.'Another example of fantastic writing was the brothers, particularly Bertie. I know, I know, the focus is on Kit, but that scene where Bertie encourages her to try new things nearly had me in tears, and seeing how he helped Daisy to tentatively start pushing her self-prescribed limits was incredibly moving. Lawrence was.. well, Lawrence, and Kit is of course a complete darling. The romance element of the novel was perfect too - there was no forced love triangle as is oh so common nowadays, and instead what you get is a very natural and organic romance, that is entirely believable and completely beautiful.Another thing I really enjoyed was how strong of a sense of place this novel offers. Each location is so well described - yet not in that dull, providing a descriptive list sort of way - that you cannot help by feel like you are truly there with them. The cottage by the canal was a particular favourite of mine, as was Flora's very festive buildings! In that sense, I feel like this is a novel that would lend itself incredible well into being made into a film - not only does it have a gorgeous plot and wonderful characters, it also has some truly stunning scenery.I really don’t know how else to describe this book other than to say that it is simply full of magic. The prose is so skilfully developed, and exemplifies a level of clarity and mastery that is rarely seen.. Davies’ is clearly incredibly talented, and she has firmly cemented herself on my list of must read authors.Disclaimer - I was provided with an advance reading copy by NetGalley for review purposes. This has not influenced by opinion in any way.

    Heartwarming feelgood Christmas-readWith The Little Shop on Silver Lining Street, Emma Davies has written a wonderful feel-good Christmas read. The story begins a few weeks before Christmas when Beatrice Buchanan, the owner of the jewelery store where 32-year-old Daisy works, announces that she is retiring. Daisy as well Bea’s three sons are shocked when she announces that she intend to hand over the store to the son who creates the most appropriate jewel for Daisy. The three brother Heartwarming feelgood Christmas-readWith The Little Shop on Silver Lining Street, Emma Davies has written a wonderful feel-good Christmas read. The story begins a few weeks before Christmas when Beatrice Buchanan, the owner of the jewelery store where 32-year-old Daisy works, announces that she is retiring. Daisy as well Bea’s three sons are shocked when she announces that she intend to hand over the store to the son who creates the most appropriate jewel for Daisy. The three brothers cannot help but fulfill their mother's wish and enter into mutual competition to gain control of the store. For that, they need to get to know Daisy better and it is decided that every brother can spend a day with Daisy to find out which gift suits Daisy best.You can't help but love Daisy. She is special. She has the unique ability to sell customers the perfect jewel for that specific romantic milestone. Not the most expensive, but just the jewel that suits the customer most. In her spare time, she designs and makes sparkling silver jewelry right from the heart. A secret that she does not intend to share with anyone and certainly not with the Buchanan family. Meanwhile she is longing for the day she’ll have a love story to call her own.However, since her unhappy childhood, Daisy doesn't allow anyone into her personal life. She has no friends and her social contacts are limited to the customers in the store and the writer who says hello to her during her daily walk along the canal. She eats the same thing every day, is horrified of crowded places and certainly doesn’t like to leave her comfort zone. And that is exactly what Beatrice Buchanan does when she announces the competition. Daisy is forced to face all her fears and it is heartwarming to see that she is slowly but surely allowing people into her life and that she is willing to try new things. When she signs up for a wreath workshop and she processes her own designed silver jewelry into the wreath, it is the start of new friendships. For the first time in her life she feels welcomed and loved for. At the same time she finds out that people love her designs.It is not only an eye opener for Daisy. The days she spend with the brothers, ensure that they examine their own lives and their future. Who ultimately becomes the big winner will only become clear at the end. Until then, you hope that both Daisy and the brothers make the right choices and follow their heart and do what they love most in their live.It may not be entirely realistic, but it sure is a lovely story that you can read in a few days. Although the story takes place around Christmas, it is certainly not just a sugar sweet Christmas story. It could very well have taken place at any other time. I enjoyed it and I hope that her books will someday appear in the Dutch translation.

    Whilst not technically a series, this book features characters from the previous two books by this author, The House at Hope Corner and The Beekeeper’s Cottage.

This book focusses on Daisy Turner who works at Buchanan’s Jewellers. She’s the perfect person to work in such a shop as she has an eye for what the customer wants, before they even know it themselves! The shop, however, isn’t doing so well, despite Daisy’s superb salesperson techniques. Bea, the owner has decided to leave the shop to whichever of her three sons finds the perfect jewellery gift for Daisy, and they have until Christmas Eve to do it. Unfortunately, none of them really know Daisy very well, so they will need to get to know her first, and she certainly isn’t going to make that easy for them…This was such a lovely story! It’s an original idea based in a jewellery shop, and just felt so magical and festive throughout! I didn’t realise it was going to feature characters from the previous two books, so was a pleasant surprise to welcome back Flora, Ned, Grace and Amos! I loved Amos in The Beekeeper’s Cottage so whilst he wasn’t a prominent character, it was great to have him back!! Daisy is a lovely character, initially so quiet and meek, not willing to try anything new and sticking to what she knows she likes. There was obviously a background story to Daisy, but what I loved most was that the past didn’t overshadow the present. As the story moved on, we got to see a different Daisy and it was wonderful to see her passion in making jewellery!The storyline of ‘who gets the shop’ was interesting and it was great how the three sons – Lawrence, Bertie and Kit – all had very different ways of working out the perfect gift for Daisy. It was obvious one of them was going to end up being Daisy’s love interest by the end of the book, but which one wasn’t revealed until much later!! The romance element of the story was definitely there, but rather than it being a ‘will-they, won’t-they’ storyline, the romance was cleverly weaved throughout Daisy’s story and also shown through the jewellery that she made!This author has a definite flair for writing books that are feel-good and heart-warming reads and that leave you with a big smile on your face! The characters bloom and grow their way throughout the storylines and come out at the end of the book completely different people. There isn’t anything in this book which wouldn’t appeal to everyone in some way! This is the perfect romantic festive read for this time of year, in fact for any time of year!! Highly recommended!!

In order to help her decide, Bea sets up a competition which will see each of them spending time with Daisy and finding out all about her - but why, oh why didn't she ask Daisy first?Everything about this story is special and it sparkles brightly all the way through. The title begins the feel-good vibes and they continue to the very last. Wonderful and heart-warming really don't do this one justice .. it oozes charm and glows all the way through as we get to know Daisy - and each of her employer's sons - better. This is really not one to be missed! Whilst it is a stand-alone read in it's own right, it also continues on from two previous novels by this author: The House on Hope Corner and The Beekeeper's Cottage, both of which I fully recommend. Emma's writing displays a very talented woman who instinctively knows how to wheedle her way into a reader's heart and make everything in the world seem rosy! This one demands a full five shining stars and earns every one of them. A blissful read!

Daisy is hesitant to experience new things and each date pushes her. But what scares her the most is the brothers are not aware of a her big secret and shes afraid of what her life will be like when the shop gets a new owner. Buchanan's is the only family she has left. This is my first book I've read by Emma Davies. I really enjoyed this holiday romance! It was a super quick relaxing read with beautiful characters. The heart-warming and uplifting story is perfect for this time of the year. I love how Daisy's personal growth was a huge impact in this story and I found it to be my favorite part. The story was fairly predictable in the end but ended perfectly. Bertie was probably my favorite character and hopefully we get another glimpse of his life in another book.Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for an advance copy of this book. This review is honest.

Daisy is a creature of habit, keeping her living quarters clean and leaving for her job at Buchanan's Family Jewelers at seven forty-five precisely every day when she works. But what she has not organized is the fact that she might loose her job because Beatrice Buchanan, the owner who gave her the job years ago when Daisy was young and desperate, announces that she is leaving the country. The shop will go to the one of her three sons, Lawrence, Bertie, or Kit, who creates the perfect Christmas jewelry for Daisy. All three sons spent time with Daisy outside of work in order to get to know her better. Will they discover what they need to know in order to accomplish the task? And who will discover what the secret is that Daisy holds?This was the first book of Emma Davies' which I read. I highly recommend it since it is a nice and relaxing read that also contains some surprises. The story presents well developed characters and an interesting story line.The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.#TheLittleShopOnSilverLiningsStreet #NetGalley

    Daisy lives a simple life despite working in an extravagant jewellery shop. She loves the heartwarming love stories that customers bring to her and in return encourages them to buy with their heart rather than to make a profit.Eccentric owner, Bea announces her retirement and sets her 3 sons the challenge of finding Daisy the perfect piece of jewellery and the winner will inherit the shop. All of the brothers are horrified, as is poor Daisy!She spends time with each of the brother as Daisy lives a simple life despite working in an extravagant jewellery shop. She loves the heartwarming love stories that customers bring to her and in return encourages them to buy with their heart rather than to make a profit.Eccentric owner, Bea announces her retirement and sets her 3 sons the challenge of finding Daisy the perfect piece of jewellery and the winner will inherit the shop. All of the brothers are horrified, as is poor Daisy!She spends time with each of the brother as they attempt to find out more about her in order to discover her preferences. She also makes discoveries about the brothers and herself in the process.Daisy reveals an artistic side and develops her passion for designing her own jewellery with a personal touch which is a far cry from the ostentatious gems available at the shop she works in.In the midst of this is a fledgling romance…The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street is a beautiful feel-good Christmas book. There is an appropriate festive message about appreciating the value of things and not being materialistic, about the thought behind a gift not the price tag.I was expecting events to turn out the way they did but the journey to the ending was beautifully written and emotional. Daisy’s past is hinted at throughout the book but when she reveals the truth I’m sure it will bring a lump to your throat :'( We also get reunited with Grace and Amos, Flora and Ned from the previous books in the series which is a nice touch.

Each of them decided to take Daisy out in turn to try and find what would be the right piece for her. Ice skating, shopping in London and a simple meal are on the cards but will any of them find the right piece and will Daisy be able to survive three separate days out from the normal safe routine of her life.Whoever wins it will change their lives forever and why must the piece be for Daisy?This is another 5 star read from Emma Davies, with characters you will recognise from previous novels they are all there to bring forth the romance and the love that Daisy has for jewellery that is hand crafted and made for love from love and not one that costs cast amounts of money and is the largest and most sparkliest gem in the shop.This was a lovely story and the plot pulled you right in and you within the first few pages card greatly about Daisy and how she came to be living the almost half life she was. It took someone to notice something in her that needed more nurturing, more caring and ultimately more love to show Daisy the life she could be living.A feel good festive read that will keep you warm on the coldest of nights. Emma Davies has done it again and her books are a joy to behold at any time of year!

Then her employer/friend puts Daisy in the middle of a distressing competition amongst her 3 sons to determine who will inherit the store.In the process, Daisy learns more about the brothers and herself - and realizes some of her prejudices that have been interfering with her perception (& others that were right on the mark), she likewise learns about others' perception of her.There may be a little sadness & a little frustration, but happily there's a lot of fun in Daisy's journey of discovery. We're given hints of where the story is going, but I wasn't expecting the twist at the end which was absolutely delightful! *Clean romance level - sweet kisses*Religion - secular, but several dozen uses of God's Name in vain, sadly, at least none of them to curse, but I do wish authors would be more considerate of their readers *Language - about a dozen or two d*mns, handful of h*lls, one bs

Emma Davies The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street has been my favorite Christmas book I have read so far this year!! To me this had a Hallmark Channel feel to it. If you know me you know I love those movies! (this needs to be made into a movie on that channel). Immediately Emma put a smile on my face as I totally related to Daisy's character! Her character was down to earth, great customer service skills, hard worker, had dreams and goals of her own, crafty, had a huge heart of gold willing to help anyone out. Family played a big part in Emma's book. It was a very unique storyline that I really loved. She really thought outside of the jewelry box for this one! One thing I thought was cute is at every chapter Emma would countdown to how many shopping days til Christmas. There were three brothers in this book. They were Lawrence, Kit and Bertie. Out of all three of them my favorite was Kit. At first I will admit he was not my favorite. However, he slowly grew on me. He totally shocked me at the end of the book. If you are a fan of Jewelry, friendly competition between brothers, a shocker, and a book that will make you smile-then this book is a book you must read!

Problem is the owner comes in and announces that she is retiring and wants to leave the shop to one of her sons but they have to design a piece of jewellery for daisy. Daisy has to come out if her comfort zone as all three sons are advised to take her out to really get to know her and she goes to places she really isn’t keen on and she really feels the youngest son is trying the most and learning what she is like. Problem is daisy has a secret if her own that once she closes the shop she designs her own pieces of master craft and she hasn’t told anyone. Problem is kit the youngest son is really getting to know her and learn what she would like but who will win the shop in the end and will daisy be able to keep her job or not and will she be happy or left on her own at Christmas. Worth more than five stars.

Which is most definitely something she is very uncomfortable with! Kit, the youngest is someone she has worked with day in and day out die years, but never really spoken too. Bertie is the party animal that very occasionally makes and appearance and Lawrence is the oldest and a ruthless and single minded businessman. None of them really seem at all interested in it, not really, and she has no idea what is going to happen. They have until Christmas Eve to pick one item of jewelry that truly matches her, though she won't be the one to pick it. Their mother will. It's a magical town, with a cast of very lovable and interesting characters and Daisy is truly a very gifted and beautiful person. I loved it and enjoyed every minute of it. Thank you to the author for this amazing tale that I could not put down!

One that has Daisy right in the middle, and way out of her comfort zone.This book also features the farm at Hope corner, and the lovely Amos. It was wonderful to catch up with them. This book is a standalone but does feature some characters from previous books.This is such a heart-warming and feel-good read, I cannot praise it enough.Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for the ARC.

    I’ve only read one book by Emma Davies before, but I loved it, so when I saw this one I snapped it up. It has all the same charm as The Beekeeper’s Cottage, but Emma Davies has excelled herself this time. Here’s a few reasons why:I love how you see characters from previous books, but you don’t need to have read them to enjoy this one.

    I very much enjoyed “Letting in Light”,“Turn Towards The Sun” and "Lucy's Book Club..." but since she has begun publishing several books a year I have noticed, perhaps not unsurprisingly, that the standard has fallen. They are still very readable but to me lack the gravitas of her earlier books, I won’t stop reading her books but (as I did with this one) if one of my most favourite authors releases a book I will probably read that one then come back to the one I set aside. Rating 3.25 stars, goo I very much enjoyed “Letting in Light”,“Turn Towards The Sun” and "Lucy's Book Club..." but since she has begun publishing several books a year I have noticed, perhaps not unsurprisingly, that the standard has fallen.

    Such a cute story. Makes me think of a Hallmark movie, so if you love those, you'll love this. Daisy has a troubled past and has lived her life in every way possible to bring order and predictability into it. Until the shop owner where she works throws in a big wrench that will change everything about Daisy's life. The characters are fun, the story is cute, it's just an all-around feel good book.Thank you NetGalley for an ARC for my honest review.

    Thank you Netgalley and publishing house for the ARC. Daisy is such a lovely person. You can tell from the beginning that her soul runs deep. I enjoyed watching her story come out and her true self emerge. I felt like I was with her, walking in the moonlight or in her cozy cottage. I loved reading about some of the characters from books past and seeing where they are now. The Buchanan boys! What a mess they were. And what a challenge they were presented with. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review. This was a lovely piece of Christmas chick lit. The storyline is more than sufficiently Christmassy, but still has meat of its own. Aside from a few predictable turns in the story, there is enough uncertainty to keep you reading. Daisy is a complex protagonist who makes you want to root for her. I would love to read a followup to see what happens next!

    Christmas SurpriseAngst filled characters, who simply need a little love to balance them as they strive to find who they are as their world is turned upside down and what they thought they knew turns out to be not quite reality. Enjoy. Can be a little slow moving and repetitive at times but a really good Christmas story.
