Midsummer Magic at Miss Moonshines Emporium

Isn’t the title Midsummer Magic at Miss Moonshines Emporium enough to get you interested in this book?

Are you ready to meet Miss Moonshine? Life may never be the same again…

It’s summer in Haven Bridge and Miss Moonshine is getting ready for a busy season. From the window of her Wonderful Emporium, at the heart of the pretty Yorkshire town, she watches and waits, weaving plans to bring happiness to all who step through her door. For Miss Moonshine is no ordinary shopkeeper. She may not have what you want, but she will always have what you need…

Nine romantic novelists from Yorkshire and Lancashire, including best-selling and award-winning authors, have joined together to create this anthology of uplifting stories guaranteed to warm your heart. This magical collection of contemporary romances will make you laugh, cry and wish for a Miss Moonshine in your own life.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This the third collection for the series, but the reader can read this as a standalone and even read each story as a standalone. The stories are centred around Haven Bridge and the book included this pretty map of the area!

What’s not to like about a lovely collection of short stories that transports you into another world? Though I’m not really a fan of short stories, I found these absolutely delightful and will happily go and read the two earlier collections.

These take us on a visit to Miss Moonshine’s Emporium where the quirky and eccentric, Miss Moonshine spreads her special brand of magic. Old friends reconnect, a musician finds her passion again, and all sorts of mysterious happenings take place that impact the lives of the various characters in the stories. I enjoyed every one of the stories and don’t want to name favourites.

A perfectly good summer read and in my case a great way to pass a wet and rainy day!

The authors

The nine Miss Moonshine authors – Mary Jayne Baker, Sophie Claire, Jacqui Cooper, Helena Fairfax, Kate Field, Melinda Hammond, Marie Laval, Helen Pollard and Angela Wren – meet up regularly in the little mill town of Hebden Bridge, on the border between the counties of Yorkshire and Lancashire – hence their group name, Authors on the Edge. This picturesque town, home to many writers, artists and musicians, was the inspiration for their magical character Miss Moonshine, and their uplifting series of anthologies featuring romance and happy endings.
