Summary

A feel-good story of new beginnings set in a gorgeous country village, perfect for fans of Katie Fforde and Milly Johnson.

After losing her job in New York, Amber Green isn’t looking forward to visiting her godmother in the sleepy village of Cranbridge. With its empty lanes and rundown shops, it’s hardly a place to mend her lonely heart.

But when Amber discovers that Cranbridge Stores, owned by her godmother, Cathy, and son Josh, is under threat of financial ruin, she realises that her skills as a window dresser might just be able to help save the struggling shop.

When disaster strikes, Amber and Josh must unite to save both the shop and the village from flooding.

Can Cranbridge Stores become the heart of the village once more?

And as the village begins to come back to life, perhaps Amber will discover a reason to stay.

Finding purpose and love in the village shop.

Loved this so much. A few acts of kindness restores the community spirit to a small village, thanks to the combined efforts of two shop keepers whose enfolding romance we follow.

Love this book

Alison Sherlock is one of my favourite writers, I love her books, I was looking forward to this new book and I was not disappointed. A lovely story, I wished I was part of the village it was so friendly. The story had everything drama, shock, hope and I even laughed as it's funny in parts. I loved the reference to Crandly and the Harris family, from the Willow Tree Hall books. I recommend this book and as for me I can't wait for part 2 of this new series.
