BLOG TOUR - The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street


Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street by Emma Davies.

DESCRIPTION:

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. Every night, when the shop closes, she lays out her tools in neat rows and creates sparkling designs of her own…

As Christmas Day approaches, Daisy’s growing feelings for Kit fill her with a confidence she never knew she had. 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?

They say all good things come in small packages, but the best things don’t need wrapping at all…

Snuggle up with this absolutely heart-warming Christmas read and find a warm spot by the fire. An unputdownable festive treat for lovers of Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Debbie Johnson.

Daisy Turner has worked at Buchanan's Family Jewelers since she was 17-years old. 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.


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

After a varied career, Emma Davies once worked for a design studio where she was asked to provide a fun and humorous (and not necessarily true) anecdote for their website. She wrote the following: 'I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.' Well the job in the design studio didn't work out but she's now a forty something mother of three and is happy to report the rest of her dream came true.

After many years as a finance manager she now writes full time and is far happier playing with words than numbers. She lives with her husband, three children, and two guinea pigs in rural Shropshire where she writes in all the gaps in between real life. It's a county she adores, her love of its beautiful people and landscapes providing endless inspiration for her books, and in fact the only thing that would make Shropshire more idyllic is if it were by the sea. 
Pop over to her website www.emmadaviesauthor.com where, amongst other things, you can read about her passion for Pringles and singing loudly in the car. You can also wave to her on twitter @EmDaviesAuthor / https://twitter.com/EmDaviesAuthor or find her on Facebook (a little too often than is good for her): https://www.facebook.com/emmadaviesauthor/
