The Cornish Village School

Written by Kitty Wilson


Rosy Winter is definitely not looking for love

Following heartbreak, Rosy has rebuilt her life in the beautiful Cornish village of Penmenna. Now, headmistress of the local school, she is living by The Rule: no dating anyone in the village. Easy right? But Rosy Winter has a new neighbour, handsome gardener Matt.

In Penmenna for his new gardening TV show, this guy next door will do everything he can to persuade her to break her rule and win her heart. Meanwhile, Penmenna Village School is threatened with closure and it’s up to Rosy to rally the local community and #SaveOurSchool. Can she bring her worlds together and accept help from the most unlikely of sources? One thing’s for sure… she won’t be giving up without a fight.




A Picturesque Setting with Wonderful Writing!   5 stars


Well, what a tempting read! Bursting at the seams with delightful details, this is such a pleasing novel.

Rosy Winter loves her job; as Head Teacher at the local primary school which has been deemed as outstanding by Ofsted, she has a lot of job satisfaction. Living on the outskirts of the village, within easy walking distance of the Cornish coast, life is good. Not perfect – but then, perfection is hard to find. Then come a couple of clouds on the horizon; a very handsome and oh so sexy man moves in next-door, but Rosy has ‘The Rule’ which she lives by and deems no dating of neighbours. Hot on the heels of that, it seems that the local authority has plans to amalgamate the surrounding village schools into one larger – and not local – super school. All of a sudden, these clouds look like turning into a great big thunderstorm – can Rosy turn things around?

This is a marvelous book; lots going on, skilfully crafted characters – and one or two eyebrow-raising ones creating lots of giggling opportunities. It’s such a fun read in a picturesque setting with wonderful writing. Both an easy to follow and entertaining tale plus a wonderful eye-catching cover all make this one I’m so very happy to recommend as a perfect summer read – don’t miss it!

My thanks to publishers Canelo for approving my request via NetGalley. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.

A10rqsTXRKL._SY200_Kitty Wilson has lived in Cornwall for the last twenty-five years having been dragged there, against her will, as a stroppy teen. She is now remarkably grateful to her parents for their foresight and wisdom – and that her own children aren’t as hideous. She spends most of her time welded to the keyboard or hiding out at the beach and has a penchant for very loud music, equally loud dresses and romantic heroines who speak their mind.
