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.

My Thoughts


This is the third book in this enchanting series, and after falling in love with the previous instalments, I couldn’t wait to return to Haven Bridge and see how the characters we have come to know and love are getting on with their lives.

Miss Moonshine is of course the central character within this book, and it is within her shop that magic really begins to take place. She is an eccentric character who is almost impossible to pin down, or to turn down for that matter, but she has a heart of gold and looks out for those around her. Her Emporium seems to cast a spell over those who wander through the doors, as they never leave the shop empty handed – which leads to the motto -‘everyone who goes into her shop finds what they need, even if they don’t know it at the time.

Each short story showcases the many talents of each individual author within this anthology, as each of them bring their own world to life within Haven Bridge. We are presented with a true variation of tales, from time travel, a riverboat community and a historical mystery are just a small selection of what this book offers us readers.

The one thing each of these individual stories has in common is providing us with some much needed romance. Despite each of the stories being written individually, I love how they are all entwined with one another, and all link back to Miss Moonshine herself. I found myself on quite the emotional journey as I lost myself within the pages of this book, from laughing out loud, to wanting to cry. It is safe to say that this book really does give you a bit of everything you could possibly want from a romance.

With a strong sense of friendship and community, and finding love along the way, this book was an absolute delight to read, and one I would happily dive in to time and time again. With wonderful characters and a gorgeous setting this book really secured a place within my heart.

About 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.
