The Village Shop For Lonely Hearts

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…

My Thoughts

A delightful heart warming story about Hope, friendship, and community. Alison Sherlock this was such a treat! Amber is returning home to a small rural town in the UK after losing her job in NYC. The situation is only temporary because after she spends some time with her godmother she is heading to New Zealand to live with her parents who have just relocated there. Josh has returned home after his father‘s death to help in the family’s village shop. Now Amber and Josh both find themselves working in this quaint village shop in need of a lot of TLC both not necessarily wanting to be there. A tractor. A pub. A bridge. A flood. A coffee maker. Locally sourced produce and cheese. A Christmas market. A sweet tale. Loved reading this so much! I so enjoyed Amber and Josh transforming the shop. Loved all the charming quirky villagers who dropped by the shop for a cup of coffee or the newspaper. Loved the wonderful sense of community (I’m betting all these people would wear masks if they were in the middle of a pandemic, just saying). The perfect book to escape into while the world around me seems to get a little crazier every day.
