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…
The Village Shop For Lonely Hearts by Alison Sherlock is a delightful, sweet, love story that put me in such a good mood. The plot was easy to follow and I was invested from the beginning.
The characters are very likable. Their struggles were relatable and it was inspiring to see how they managed their issues. I loved the humorous banter which brought a bit of a smile when there was family drama.
The romance is realistic. Slow-burn and definitely believable. I enjoyed that very much. Sometimes authors jump right to the lovey-dovey, but this is wonderfully real.
A great, feel good read for the times right now. Check it out.
