Publisher's 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.

Nice cozy romance

Loved this book it does start out a little sad but it does pick up. I like that fact it doesn't focus on the characters insecurities at nauseum.

A Sweet Story about Love and Friendship

I didn’t give this book five stars because I thought the pacing was a little too slow but overall I enjoyed the story very much. The characters were charming and relatable and the romance between Josh and Amber was sweet, though probably a little too slow of a burn - wish there had been a chance to develop it further. Overall, I spent an enjoyable afternoon reading about village life in England.

The narrator was excellent.

Too long

This could’ve been the half of a story but no, they had to expended way too many times going in circles

childhood friendships and how they bloom

This story was so sweet. I loved the characters and its a story longer than time itself, but the ones that make us for in love again and again.

Such a sweet story

I loved this book. Well written and enjoyable. Characters were interesting and you kept rooting for the two main ones. Will read this author again.
