    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.

    Emma Davies writes the best books with beautiful descriptions and detailed characters The warmth always shines through her books.This book was something special Daisy was a quiet romantic, who had the unique talent whereby she matched the perfect jewelry to a romantic occasion Her employer and friend decided to retire and left a competition to her 3 grandsons The one who made the perfect jewelry for Daisy would be left the job The fun began when the brothers wooed her to get to know her There was a spark with Kit, but was it real Emma Davies wrote this book with the loving strokes of her pen The ink flowed smoothly in her words, there was nary a hitch where the lines felt abrupt Everything seemed to be stringed like poetry The characters were strong, their personalities came through Each one was endearing and felt like family.It was Daisy who caught my eye with her quiet ways Her longing for a family resonated in my heart Her emotions were a force to reckon with as they hit me passionately She was complex enough to make the book interesting and simple enough to understand and love her She was real, like you and me.Emma s book was a pocket of joy as her words uplifted me, gave me hope and thawed my cold heart in ways that had me dancing with joy It was a wonderful read on a lazy afternoon when life felt difficult, but the book made the few hours peaceful.

    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 any 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.

    Let me start out by saying I LOVED this book, from the tie in to The House at Hope Corner and The Beekeeper s Cottage to the lovely portrayal of the very at first buttoned up Daisy, who seemed to exist in a small, contained box But the owner of Buchanan s, the jewelry store in which Daisy works has a plan she has three sons to take over the business when she retires to Spain with her new love This isn t a straightforward process, however, as she has made it clear that each of her sons must spend a day with Daisy, getting to know her, and to choose either made or self designed a piece of jewelry to suit her, making sure they know why their choice is the perfect one The winner will be chosen by both Bea and Daisy, and they shall run the shop The whole concept has Daisy tied in knots She s a creature of routine, with few possessions and fewer daring genes Sure, she had her reasons, and some very specific peculiarities that seemed to contradict her working in an upscale jewelry shop, selling expensive and showy pieces for the past eight years but this only served to highlight her very unique outlook on the world, and made her imagination and skills all that astounding when they are finally revealed And each day with the sons, first with Bertie the fun loving son who is the peacemaker between the brothers, and currently managing the books We see his efforts to put Daisy at ease and challenge her limited choices , from food to drinks to even enjoying a fun fair at a Christmas market Always gentle and attuned to her every emotion, she and Bertie had time to chatter and discover one another, and her pointed questions about materialism and purpose left him thinking Second day was with Lawrence the bullying, snobbish and highly strung eldest brother one who wants always to win, when things he desires are not handed to him Their day was as expected a trip to Harrods where he tried, and failed, to gain advantage through a series of tricks from walking her through the fine jewelry section to grilling a specific personal shopper for advice While Daisy and the shopper, Monique, got on beautifully, the information Lawrence was able to use was slim and left Daisy on the verge of migraine Lastly we have Kit, the constant shop assistant that Daisy feels is lazy and uninterested Kit s always had his own agenda that doesn t match with others, and when a holiday wreath making class brings Daisy to Hope Flower Farm, and her idea to mix jewelry and a wreath are born, it also opens up a whole world of confidence in her own design and abilities With Flora, Grace, and Amos all cheering her on and expressing delight in her work, and a commission from a random Instagram message all allow her to start speaking her mind, discovering Kit in a new light, and sharing her own rough childhood experience with him the story takes shape Still unsteady on her feet, Daisy isn t prone to trusting anyone, and when a slip of the tongue has her believing that Kit was cheating to get an advantage in the competition she s devastated This is, like many of Davies stories, a bit of a slow burn with the main character finding their own sense of purpose and unleashing their potential in ways unexpected, and with plenty of sideline cheerleading from the folks at the flower farm Daisy s comfort in her own home, her own safe little box, and the need to feel safe and content with what she has are paramount to her well being, but it is her imagination and ability to translate her own romantic sensibilities into the perfect items for everyone she encounters that allows the story to sing Her childhood put her into a state of constant watchfulness, allowing her to translate often vague statements into their essence and bring the perfect option to each person she encounters With plenty of twists, lots of encouragement and a dash of love that is so perfectly placed one can t help but smile, this story brings the magic and possibility of the season alight, and allows Daisy to blossom into all that she will become with plenty of new friends and support along the way A favorite for sure, and one that serves as a lovely introduction to those unfamiliar with this author trust me, if this is your first by Emma Davies, it most certainly won t be your last I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility Review first appeared at I am, Indeed

    From the first chapter I was utterly enchanted, and just knew this story was going to get under my skin It is such a warm hug of a book, really cosy, with a lovely story at the heart of it, a sprinkle of Christmas magic, a few interesting days out, getting to know three very different brothers, and also Daisy s secret past as a well as her soon to be no so secret talents too Daisy has a simple life, does the same thing every day, likes things just as they are, is possibly an even fussier eater than me which does give me great hope that I m not utterly hopeless , and generally regards uchanan s as her life saving job, having worked there since the age of 17 She may not be the biggest fan of the sorts of expensive jewellery that she sells there, but she is a romantic at heart, and loves hearing all the different love stories, as she tries to pair the perfect piece to the perfect partner, even if it may not be the best option for the shops profit margins However this December everything changes when Bea, the owner of Buchanan s announces her intention to retire at the end of the year, and is running a competition between her 3 incredibly different sons to see which one will get the business And Daisy is at the heart of it as they each have to come up with the perfect present for her, and Bea will judge on Christmas Eve I really enjoyed seeing the three brothers bicker amongst themselves, the way that Daisy attempted to spend a day with each of them, marvelling at Daisy s integrity, while also incredibly interested not only in that story line but the far creative one, that means fans of Emma Davies this year were treated to glimpses of Flora and Ned, and Grace and Amos from her other releases this year I won t go into details on that section as frankly I enjoyed not knowing in advance, and discovering for myself but to say its integral to everything seems fair Amos yet again even in the small ways he was present was a fabulous addition to the book This though is 100% a standalone story, and if you weren t aware of the previous book connections, you wouldn t even notice them, but its a nice addition for the authors fans.And the brothers, wow just how different are they, I really wasn t sure how things would turn out, but I had a massive massive smile on my face by the end of the book, it was just perfect An utterly charming, sweet, cosy romance, guaranteed to warm the hardest of hearts this Christmas and filled me with great hope too Thank you to Bookouture and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    Oh, what a splendid story this is As soon as I opened the book I was lost, lost in the beauty of the tale.What would you do if you were or less forced in to a competition Would you play fair in order to win the prize or would you try to cheat your way to the top But then again, what is the prize Was it what was being dangled in front of you like they do with a carrot to a donkey or was it something entirely different This is a story about love and finding your way in life.I totally adored the book and I was very happy to meet up with some old friends 5 stars.Thank you, Emma Davies and Bookouture via Netgalley

    This was a cute little story and the characters were well thought out and written beautifully but I just couldn t find myself that bothered about the man characters, Kit and Daisy I was interested in Bertie s story and would love him to have a love story of his own.It was quite predictable with its direction but a nice little read when you need something lighter Still a huge fan of Emma Davies although I ve yet to find anything of hers that I like as much as her debut 3 stars.

    Daisy has worked at Buchanan s since the tender age of 17, given a job in a time of need by the loving, yet ever theatrical, Bea Working there is her lifeline, a routine that brings her comfort, and allows her to exercise her natural talent at seeing what people need, not just what they want And being able to hear the stories behind these gifts is the icing on the cake as far as Daisy is concerned But all of that looks to change when Bea announces her plans to retire, and life gets even trickier when Bea decides to have a competition to decide which of her 3 sons should inherit the shop a competition focused on them getting to know Daisy Buchanan s was a place where magic still happened, where young lovers bought rings to cement their union, or where grey haired men came in search of something to tell their wives, I m still in love with you, even after all these years I cannot agree with our leading lady Buchanan s truly is a place where magic happens From the synopsis of the novel, I expected a sweet enough book of three brothers competing to woo a young girl What I got instead was a truly beautiful novel, based on characters that are so vivid you cannot help but fall for them Daisy in particular was a true marvel, and I adored her instantly Being able to watch as Daisy slowly comes out of her shell and begins to engage with the wider world was truly beautiful to behold I don t want to sell people trinkets and baubles, I want to sell them memories, and friendship, time spent with family I think people need good times in their lives, maybe now than ever Another example of fantastic writing was the brothers, particularly Bertie I know, I know, the focus is on Kit, but that scene where Bertie encourages her to try new things nearly had me in tears, and seeing how he helped Daisy to tentatively start pushing her self prescribed limits was incredibly moving Lawrence was. well, Lawrence, and Kit is of course a complete darling The romance element of the novel was perfect too there was no forced love triangle as is oh so common nowadays, and instead what you get is a very natural and organic romance, that is entirely believable and completely beautiful.Another thing I really enjoyed was how strong of a sense of place this novel offers Each location is so well described yet not in that dull, providing a descriptive list sort of way that you cannot help by feel like you are truly there with them The cottage by the canal was a particular favourite of mine, as was Flora s very festive buildings In that sense, I feel like this is a novel that would lend itself incredible well into being made into a film not only does it have a gorgeous plot and wonderful characters, it also has some truly stunning scenery.I really don t know how else to describe this book other than to say that it is simply full of magic The prose is so skilfully developed, and exemplifies a level of clarity and mastery that is rarely seen. Davies is clearly incredibly talented, and she has firmly cemented herself on my list of must read authors.Disclaimer I was provided with an advance reading copy by NetGalley for review purposes This has not influenced by opinion in any way.

    Heartwarming feelgood Christmas readWith The Little Shop on Silver Lining Street, Emma Davies has written a wonderful feel good Christmas read The story begins a few weeks before Christmas when Beatrice Buchanan, the owner of the jewelery store where 32 year old Daisy works, announces that she is retiring Daisy as well Bea s three sons are shocked when she announces that she intend to hand over the store to the son who creates the most appropriate jewel for Daisy The three brothers cannot help but fulfill their mother s wish and enter into mutual competition to gain control of the store For that, they need to get to know Daisy better and it is decided that every brother can spend a day with Daisy to find out which gift suits Daisy best.You can t help but love Daisy She is special She has the unique ability to sell customers the perfect jewel for that specific romantic milestone Not the most expensive, but just the jewel that suits the customer most In her spare time, she designs and makes sparkling silver jewelry right from the heart A secret that she does not intend to share with anyone and certainly not with the Buchanan family Meanwhile she is longing for the day she ll have a love story to call her own.However, since her unhappy childhood, Daisy doesn t allow anyone into her personal life She has no friends and her social contacts are limited to the customers in the store and the writer who says hello to her during her daily walk along the canal She eats the same thing every day, is horrified of crowded places and certainly doesn t like to leave her comfort zone And that is exactly what Beatrice Buchanan does when she announces the competition Daisy is forced to face all her fears and it is heartwarming to see that she is slowly but surely allowing people into her life and that she is willing to try new things When she signs up for a wreath workshop and she processes her own designed silver jewelry into the wreath, it is the start of new friendships For the first time in her life she feels welcomed and loved for At the same time she finds out that people love her designs.It is not only an eye opener for Daisy The days she spend with the brothers, ensure that they examine their own lives and their future Who ultimately becomes the big winner will only become clear at the end Until then, you hope that both Daisy and the brothers make the right choices and follow their heart and do what they love most in their live.It may not be entirely realistic, but it sure is a lovely story that you can read in a few days Although the story takes place around Christmas, it is certainly not just a sugar sweet Christmas story It could very well have taken place at any other time I enjoyed it and I hope that her books will someday appear in the Dutch translation.

    Whilst not technically a series, this book features characters from the previous two books by this author, The House at Hope Corner and The Beekeeper s Cottage It can be read as a standalone novel though, but it was lovely to see some of the characters returning as I really liked them in their own books This book focusses on Daisy Turner who works at Buchanan s Jewellers She s the perfect person to work in such a shop as she has an eye for what the customer wants, before they even know it themselves The shop, however, isn t doing so well, despite Daisy s superb salesperson techniques Bea, the owner has decided to leave the shop to whichever of her three sons finds the perfect jewellery gift for Daisy, and they have until Christmas Eve to do it Unfortunately, none of them really know Daisy very well, so they will need to get to know her first, and she certainly isn t going to make that easy for them This was such a lovely story It s an original idea based in a jewellery shop, and just felt so magical and festive throughout I didn t realise it was going to feature characters from the previous two books, so was a pleasant surprise to welcome back Flora, Ned, Grace and Amos I loved Amos in The Beekeeper s Cottage so whilst he wasn t a prominent character, it was great to have him back Daisy is a lovely character, initially so quiet and meek, not willing to try anything new and sticking to what she knows she likes There was obviously a background story to Daisy, but what I loved most was that the past didn t overshadow the present As the story moved on, we got to see a different Daisy and it was wonderful to see her passion in making jewellery The storyline of who gets the shop was interesting and it was great how the three sons Lawrence, Bertie and Kit all had very different ways of working out the perfect gift for Daisy It was obvious one of them was going to end up being Daisy s love interest by the end of the book, but which one wasn t revealed until much later The romance element of the story was definitely there, but rather than it being a will they, won t they storyline, the romance was cleverly weaved throughout Daisy s story and also shown through the jewellery that she made This author has a definite flair for writing books that are feel good and heart warming reads and that leave you with a big smile on your face The characters bloom and grow their way throughout the storylines and come out at the end of the book completely different people There isn t anything in this book which wouldn t appeal to everyone in some way This is the perfect romantic festive read for this time of year, in fact for any time of year Highly recommended
