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.

A Mills & Boon type story, that could have been a true life, or so people would like to think.

Nice, easy, lighthearted story.

A lovely easy to listen to story. Occasionally repetitive and of course predictable- but that’s also what I liked about it. Sweet and wholesome.

Cosy story

A lovely, cosy story, although a bit corny and predictable in parts. I definitely enjoyed it.
