When city-girl Amber arrives to spend the summer in a small village, the only stars she recognises are the ones she reads about in her glossy celeb magazines. So she is stunned to find herself surrounded by a new neighbours who organise their entire lives around constellation customs and the astral calendar. More scarily, Amber finds that the villagers actually believe that the stars and moon can work magic. Amber remains loudly sceptical, but as she's grown very fond of her new friends - especially the gorgeously enigmatic Lewis - and assuming that it's all a bit of harmless fun, she hurls herself into the star-ceremonies and moon-myths on the grounds that if you can't beat 'em, join 'em and any excuse for a party. But when, as result of one of Amber's half-hearted celestial incantations, something totally inexplicable happens, she begins to wonder if maybe, just maybe, there's more to magic than meets the eye...… (more)

A little twee for me, a bit crowded with characters but an ok read ( )

I found this book by chance in my local library. I adore this little book, I had no idea what to expect from the title. I think the book comes under 'Chic Lit' but it so much more, the characters in this book come to life, the little village of fiddlesticks makes you wish you lived there. A young modern woman leaves her fast pace life behind and moves to a little village called fiddlesticks, she finds the people she meets very strange at first, they all seem to believe in the magic of the moon and stars, and old traditions, they hold very amusing rites for these beliefs, to the bewilderment of the main character. But after a while she begins to fall in love with the loveable characters and starts to believe in the magic....... I cannot say more without ruining the story. The story is well written, follows through and has a nicley finished ending. If you enjoy humour, great characters, an adorable setting and a bit of magic......I recommend this book! ( )
