I enjoyed every single one of these stories, and I wished to carry on reading them all as well, I was almost disappointed when each story came to an end! It was a good introduction to the writing styles of authors whose books I may not have read before too, and all the stories seamlessly incorporated the quirky Miss Moonshine and her interesting shop.
There were many life lessons to be learnt in this book, and each author did an outstanding job of keeping their story short but not TOO short, so that we got to know the characters quite well and could picture the scenes in our heads. It made me wish that there was a Miss Moonshine's Emporium near me, for when I need some answers to some of life's thorny questions!
Well done everyone :)
5 stars from me.

With the link provided by Miss Moonshine, there’s real variety in this collection – beginning with two historical stories, a very touching Regency romance (and a thoroughly engaging one) from Melinda Hammond that I really (and slightly unexpectedly) enjoyed, and a lovely Edwardian romance from Helena Fairfax. I was on rather more familiar ground with what followed, and can honestly say that I loved every story – every one featuring strong characters, well developed story lines and a perfect emotional touch.
Maybe I shouldn’t pick out my favourites, but I will! I thought The Girl Who Didn’t Win by Kate Field was just one of those perfectly constructed stories with all the elements that would have made me more than happy to read a whole book based around its characters. The Man in her Dreams by Jacqui Cooper, with its supernatural touches, was exceptionally original and quite beautifully written. And The Angel Stone by Sophie Claire – a really excellent story, and an uplifting one about finding yourself and moving on. I also particularly enjoyed The Last Chapter by Mary Jayne Baker, a gorgeous bookish romance and a really original idea at its core.
I really shouldn’t have started this, should I? As I flick through the book again, I want to mention every single story – but I won’t. Do try this book, it’s the loveliest experience, a warm and unforgettable collection of happy ever afters, and a wonderful introduction to the work of a group of authors whose books deserve to be on every reader’s reading list. Oh, I do so wish Miss Moonshine, the wonderful Napoleon and the emporium were real… but then again, maybe they are.
As an initial premise I wondered how such a collection from different writers would succeed in one book - I need not have worried. I was engrossed in each individual and very unique story.
I found myself carried away into the world of Suffragettes in Helena Fairfax’s brilliantly researched story of ‘Beatrice Marches for Women’ as Beatrice is beginning to resent the limitations of women in her era and longs to study medicine.
In ‘The Man in Her Dreams’ by Jacqui Cooper a necklace magically links the lives of two women. Laura and Olivia can see and listen into each other’s lives but unable to communicate otherwise. One day the link the inexplicably is cut off.
In ‘The Girl Who Didn’t Win’ by Kate Field, Clare has suffered her fair share of tragedy and finds herself living at home again. Just missing out on a lottery win she believes herself the unluckiest person ever until a mysterious gift of a book from the elusive Miss Moonshine leads on her on investigative trail and in the process finds life is full of second-chances not second-bests!
These only touch on three of these entertaining stories which carried me into their worlds and with each tale I forgot that I was reading a short story until I came to the end all too soon. The skill of the writers is shown as I longed to read on. I am now eager to explore the writings by these Northern writers.
