Amber is a twenty something city girl who's moved in with her late grandmother's best friend after losing her family to a nomadic life in Spain, her job, and her man, who turned out to be cheating. Amber is is definitely suffering from culture shock and can't help but be skeptical about the characters she meets and their acceptance of magic. Then things happen that are beyond rational belief, and she begins to wonder...what if? Zillah, a fifty-year old, has lived in Fiddlesticks for 30 years, an ...more

I cannot describe how much I love this book! I enjoy all of Christina's novels but Seeing Stars will always have a special place in my heart.

It was such a magical story, took me on a wonderful journey and I couldn't put it down! The characters were fantastic! I really got behind Amber as she explored her new surroundings and adjusted to her new life. I fell in love with Lewis (who wouldn't?!), and the residents of fiddlesticks were so funny, warm and welcoming that I desperately wanted to move

enjoyable fairy tale !!
Another lovely romance with a touch of Magic by Christina Jones. I really liked Amber, she is such a cool character. A definitely easy read.
30-07-2013 - A second re-read later and I'm in love with Lewis and the people of Berkshire. Everyone is slightly mad and utterly fabulous. Big Ida Thomm, Mitzi Blessing, everyone is just too fabulous for words.

It made me wonder if astral magic could be true. And if it is, i guess i'll be wishing for a guy like Lewis. The ending is quite predictable. But it amused me how the Amber-Lewis love story ended.

One of my favourites this year! Magic and twee with a dose of realism, predictable but who cares? Loved it so much I need to read Hubble Bubble next.
Paused for holiday June 25th 2012.
Resumed August 29th 2012.
On hold due to loss of interest on August 31st.

It's just really really funny at times. I love it, although it's hard to consider it a literary work of art.

More of the same from Christina Jones - seemed a bit slow to get going, but enjoyable fun.

I liked this British chick lit author much better before her characters became so New Agey.

I've written all my life, but only became a published novelist in 1997. Before that, I wrote short stories and newspaper articles for pin money while doing a series of naff jobs. In fact I've had twenty seven jobs and been sacked from nineteen of them for writing when I should have been working. I've been, among other things, a shop assistant, waitress, cleaner, secretary, factory worker, market-r ...more
