Thirty-two-year-old 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 an absolutely heartwarming Christmas read and find a warm spot by the fire. An unputdownable festive treat for lovers of Jenny Colgan, Lucy Diamond and Debbie Johnson.
I fell in love with this story the moment I picked it up. Emma Davies is definitely my go to author for when I want something uplifting and heart warming and with each book she just gets better and better.
No one does characters like this author does. I always love them! Okay there maybe the odd unsavoury one but otherwise they are all fabulous. There were so many likeable ones in this story but Daisy I especially loved and there is one character who appears in one chapter, Monique, who I really hope the author brings back in another book. She was just fabulous.
The book couldn’t be coming out at anymore of a perfect time of the year. The run up to Christmas can be such a magical time but for Daisy it also is a time for a lot of reflection as her job is under threat. There arn’t many of us who love what we do but Daisy puts her heart and soul into her job and she is an absolute asset for it.
Daisy is in for a bit of a bumpy ride as she is thrown out of her comfort zone and what follows is a story that was so engrossing that I lost all sense of time.
The Little Shop On Silver Linings Street is just the perfect reading companion. It welcomes you like an old friend and pulls you in for a warm hug. It entertains and was such an endearing read with a fabulous cast of characters. A book to be read and loved, over and over again.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

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.
