    Highly recommended!

    A poignant and heartwarming Christmas story that made me smile and root for the characters. It's full of emotions, gripping and entertaining, one of those book you cannot put down. There's a lot of character development and the characters are realistic, relatable and likeable. The plot is well crafted and I appreciated how the author was never over the top with the Christmas atmosphere and the emotional part. I liked the other books by this author and I liked this one. Highly recommended! Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

    Lovely story about loss, grief and second chances

    "The garden on Sparrow Street" is the perfect cozy read for a rainy afternoon (as it is here today). Nina lost her husband two years ago and since then she's given herself to her work in a charity shop with her friend Robyn. When they find themselves jobless, Nina takes upon herself to try to save the Sparrow Street's Community Garden with the help of her neighbors. As the community comes together, she is drawn to the gardener that's helping them, but is she open for a new love? While I may be able to understand where she was coming from, I couldn't help but find maddening Nina's attitude with herself sometimes. It seemed like she was trying to sabotage herself just for the sake of it! A lovely story about loss, grief and how to deal with them while giving yourself second chances.

    Lovely & Heartwarming

    Combine a good sprinkling of romance, loss, friendship, community spirit and Christmas cheer and you end up with The Garden on Sparrow Street by Tilly Tennant. Although I haven't yet read any of this author's other novels, the attractive cover design of this one caught my eye and I thought the premise of the book sounded wonderful. The Garden on Sparrow Street was a such lovely story and I especially liked the main character, Nina, to whom I could really relate. I was rooting for the other characters too, particularly Colm and Robyn. I appreciated the wintery theme and the Christmas feel with their festive charms, as well as the story's overall tone which was so snug and uplifting, bringing with it such an amazing sense of community. This was a beautifully written, uplifting story of love, friendship, overcoming loss and coping with the bad times. A dash of sparkling romance kept things fizzing and everything was wrapped up very nicely in the end. This is a wonderful, inspirational holiday read with a really strong wintery feel and a book that I will certainly be recommending to friends and family. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    A delightful story with a few hiccups.

    My Rating: 4.5 Stars Christmas is coming quickly, but it is not a season of joy for Nina. She is a widow, and that makes things hard enough as it was during Christmas she lost her husband. What makes this year especially difficult is that charity shop she has volunteered at for years is closing down. Nina finds something else to help to occupy her time. She attends a board meeting with her best friend Robyn, also a widow who works with Nina at the shop. There is a plan to create a Community Garden on Sparrow Street. This place was very close to her husband's heart, and Nina is eager to take on the project. Nina, Robyn and several other residents begin the endeavor and things begin looking up. There is someone new on the scene, however, who actually turns Nina's head. That is Colm, an Irish gardener, who just happens to be something special. At first Nina feels disloyal to her first love, but while the garden is being set up, along with some troubles along the way, Nina and Colm draw ever closer together. There are some hiccups along the way, however. Not only is Nina very concerned with how Colm's daughter might feel if their relationship blossoms, suddenly Colm's estranged wife shows up and wants to reunite the family. Nina must make some difficult choices. What a a touching story! On the one hand, it was rather heartbreaking when Nina's loss is brought to mind, along with her exploring whether or not she can love again. In a wonderful way, however, this turns into a story of love and hope and definitely gave me the feels. This seasonal story is the perfect evening read, one where time could easily be suspended, knowing that in the end, one's heart will leap for joy. This is only the third book that I have read by Tilly Tennant. I definitely want to dive into the rest of her backlist, because her stories are always touching and very rewarding. Many thanks to Bookoture and to NetGalley for this ARC to review. This is my honest opinion.
