When the magic of Christmas is just what you’re looking for…
There’s something magical about Miss Moonshine’s Wonderful Emporium, and at Christmas she brings an added sparkle to the inhabitants of the pretty Yorkshire town of Haven Bridge. Customers who step over her threshold find an eccentric collection of gifts, but Miss Moonshine has a rare knack for providing exactly what they need: a strange Advent calendar whose doors give a glimpse of a happy ending; a vintage typewriter that types a ghostly message from Christmas past; a mirror in a silver case that reflects the person you’d like to be.
Step inside Miss Moonshine’s quirky shop, and the thing you need most for Christmas will be right there, waiting for you…
Nine romantic novelists from Yorkshire and Lancashire, including best-selling and award-winning authors, have joined together to create this collection of uplifting festive stories guaranteed to warm your heart. This intriguing mix of historical and contemporary romances will make you laugh, cry, and believe in the magic of Christmas.
This book is great for readers of short stories, looking for a festive read.
The book is made up of nine short stories by nine different authors:
The Ghost in the Machine by Mary Jayne Baker
The Boy Next Door by Helen Pollard
My True Love Gave to Me by Sophie Claire
How To Save Christmas by Kate Field
A Raven’s Gift by Angela Wren
Make My Wish Come True by Helena Fairfax
Christmas Magic by Marie Laval
The Timepiece by Melinda Hammond
Miss Moonshine’s Advent Calendar by Jacqui Cooper
Admittedly I have only read books by a couple of the authors so this was a great introduction to the other authors works that are new to me. Each one has a festive theme as well as mainly a touch of romance in them. They also centre around Miss Moonshine’s Emporium. This is a shop that seems to sell everything.
As with a lot of short story books, some stories I enjoyed more than others, my two personal favourites being How To Save Christmas and Make My Wish Come True. For short stories, the characters really grabbed my attention and could have easily read more as I was enjoying the stories so much.
Christmas At Miss Moonshine’s Emporium is a great read when you are short for time but wanting a reading fix. Each story took around 20-30 minutes to read and gave me a great festive fix. You don’t need to wait for Christmas to read it as can easily be enjoyed at anytime of the year.
