Daisy Turner has worked at Buchanan's Family Jewelers since she was 17-years old.

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 s

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

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, w

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 dayI ...more

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 eate

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 more 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 find

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 trick ...more

Heartwarming feelgood Christmas-read

With 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 brother

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 the ...more

Having an Emma Davies novel waiting in the wings is always a treat - a most delicious and delectable one at that. I always know I'm in for the warmest of reads!

Daisy works at the town's 'posh' jewellers. It's the only job she's ever had and she is very accomplished at sending customers away both happy and satisfied with their purchases. Owned by Bea Buchanan, the business is a family firm and all three of Bea's sons are involved in one way or another - not that any of them have ever

Daisy, a young shopkeeper, is a creature of habit. She enjoys her simple predictable life as she works at a local jewelry store owned by a loving woman, Bae, who saved her at a young age of 17. Daisy is thrust out of her comfort zone when she finds out that the Bae will be retiring and passing the store to one of her three sons. To find out which son is most deserving, they must find the perfect piece of jewelry to present to Daisy for Christmas.

Daisy is a creature of habit, keeping her living quarters clean and leaving for her job at Buchanan's Family Jewelers at seven forty-five precisely every day when she works.

Daisy lives a simple life despite working in an extravagant jewellery shop. She loves the heartwarming love stories that customers bring to her and in return encourages them to buy with their heart rather than to make a profit.
Eccentric owner, Bea announces her retirement and sets her 3 sons the challenge of finding Daisy the perfect piece of jewellery and the winner will inherit the shop. All of the brothers are horrified, as is poor Daisy!

Daisy did not have a happy childhood and when the chance to escape came, she got a job in Buchanans a jewellery shop and her love for the romance of jewellery and her secret passion for making it as well blossomed.

Daisy kept herself to herself and followed a routine that kept her grounded and focused. It was the only way to survive.

That is until the owner of Buchanan's decides she is goign to retire and therefore leave the shop to one of her three sons. The successful one

(4.5 stars) - a lovely Christmas fairytale with a refreshingly original premise

Daisy is a sweet cinderella-flavored heroine who is sensitive, creative, and generally perceptive at reading people. She's also suffering from a form of PTSD anxiety & insecurity that borders on OCD, and we eventually come to understand why.

Her life of routine is her comfort, and she doesn't want to leave her comfort zone because she's learned that doing so can hurt. Then her employer/frien

First, I want to thank Emma Davis, Bookouture, and NetGalley for providing me with this book so I may bring you this review.

Emma Davies The Little Shop on Silver Linings Street has been my favorite Christmas book I have read so far this year!! To me this had a Hallmark Channel feel to it. If you know me you know I love those movies! (this needs to be made into a movie on that channel).

Immediately Emma put a smile on my face as I totally related to Daisy's character! Her character was down to e

An adorable, quirky and incredibly satisfying story of a young woman, unsure of herself and the world who is thrust into a competition between three brothers to see who will take over the family jewelry store she works at. Which is most definitely something she is very uncomfortable with! Kit, the youngest is someone she has worked with day in and day out die years, but never really spoken too. Bertie is the party animal that very occasionally makes and appearance and Lawrence is the oldest and ...more

This is such an amazing and gorgeous book. It's such a perfect festive book, one that makes you feel happy and joyful. Once I had started to read it, I could not put it down. Definitely a book to cosy up with.
Daisy works in a family run jewellers shop, she has been there since she was 17. She likes the familiarity of her job, and the strict routine, a quality that she also follows at home. A shock announcement from her boss leaves the 3 owners Son's to go on a mission. One that has Daisy right

I’ve only read one book by Emma Davies before, but I loved it, so when I saw this one I snapped it up. It has all the same charm as The Beekeeper’s Cottage, but Emma Davies has excelled herself this time. Here’s a few reasons why:

I love how you see characters from previous books, but you don’t need to have read them to enjoy this one. I love the beautiful scenery and atmosphere - the wonder of winter really comes across. I love the character development, particularly of Daisy, Kit an

Such a lovely book.

Daisy seems to be content with her small life - working in the local jewellers and living in a smal cottage by the canal she thinks she has everything she needs.
All this changes one day when her employer Bea annouces she is retiring and one of her sons will be running the shop. This could change everything.
She spends time with each of the brothers, but Kit is the quiet soul you think would be perfect for Daisy. But when she finds out he is keeping secrets wi

I very much enjoyed “Letting in Light”,“Turn Towards The Sun” and "Lucy's Book Club..." but since she has begun publishing several books a year I have noticed, perhaps not unsurprisingly, that the standard has fallen. They are still very readable but to me lack the gravitas of her earlier books, I won’t stop reading her books but (as I did with this one) if one of my most favourite authors releases a book I will probably read that one then come back to the one I set aside.

Charming and full of Christmas spirit. This was a delightful seasonal read with a fantastic female lead. I was happy for the cross-connections to familiar characters from The House at Hope Corner. I quirked an eyebrow over the implausible plotline regarding the inheritance - but it's fiction and Christmasy and magic abounds, so we can use our imaginations, right? Overall an excellent heartwarming feel-good tale perfect for a chilly night tucked in warmly.

Such a cute story. Makes me think of a Hallmark movie, so if you love those, you'll love this. Daisy has a troubled past and has lived her life in every way possible to bring order and predictability into it. Until the shop owner where she works throws in a big wrench that will change everything about Daisy's life. The characters are fun, the story is cute, it's just an all-around feel good book.

Thank you NetGalley for an ARC for my honest review.

Thank you Netgalley and publishing house for the ARC. Daisy is such a lovely person. You can tell from the beginning that her soul runs deep. I enjoyed watching her story come out and her true self emerge. I felt like I was with her, walking in the moonlight or in her cozy cottage. I loved reading about some of the characters from books past and seeing where they are now. The Buchanan boys! What a mess they were. And what a challenge they were presented with. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

A seasonal read with a sweet, simple heroine and three privileged brothers vying for a coveted prize. The author, Emma Davis does a good job of showing the differences of personalities in the characters and how if you take the time to really learn about someone, you just might learn about yourself. Thank you to Netgalley, the author and Publisher, Bookouture for an ARC.
I voluntarily read this book and the review is my honest opinion.

Thank you to NetGalley for providing an eARC in exchange for an honest review.

This was a lovely piece of Christmas chick lit. The storyline is more than sufficiently Christmassy, but still has meat of its own. Aside from a few predictable turns in the story, there is enough uncertainty to keep you reading. Daisy is a complex protagonist who makes you want to root for her. I would love to read a followup to see what happens next!

Christmas Surprise

Angst filled characters, who simply need a little love to balance them as they strive to find who they are as their world is turned upside down and what they thought they knew turns out to be not quite reality. Enjoy. Can be a little slow moving and repetitive at times but a really good Christmas story.

Emma Davies once applied for her dream job in the following manner;

'I am a bestselling novelist currently masquerading as a thirty something mother of three.' Well she's now a forty something mother of three, and is working on the rest.

By day she's a finance manager and looks at numbers a lot of the time, but by night she gets to use actual words and practices putting them
