One Summer in Little Penhaven




Could one summer change your life? 

When high-flying American lawyer Samantha Muir finds out she’s lost her partnership whilst on an assignment in London, she has a dramatic reaction. Rather then returning home, she resigns, leaves her business suits behind and jumps on the first train to Cornwall at the encouragement of a friendly stranger.

The village of Little Penhaven, where Samantha eventually ends up, is a world away from her life in Knoxville, Tennessee – and local farmer Cadan Day is certainly a world away from any man she has met before.

But could the Cornish village and Cadan play a part in Samantha’s summer of self-discovery?








Wonderful, Easy Read!    Stars 4.5


A fabulous book set in the gorgeous Cornish countryside – what’s not to like?

Samantha Muir is a high-flying corporate lawyer. Working in London on a case, she is sure her long promised partnership is about to come to fruition; however when it goes to another, she decides enough is enough and resigns. Deciding to see something of the UK, she bumps into a friendly stranger who persuades her to give Cornwall a whirl. The small village is a hive of local gossip, and Cadan Day seems to be on the wrong side of public opinion but he’s a very attractive man – and Sam isn’t entirely blind to his charms. Where will it lead them?

This is a lovely read with plenty happening to keep the reader’s attention. As Sam strikes up new friendships, we find out she isn’t susceptible to gossip and prefers to create her own opinions. Sam and Cadan’s possible romance isn’t the only tale in this one and I raced through it, eager to know how, when and if all the arising problems would be dealt with. By the final page, everything was beautifully tied up, which I truly like. My only criticism would be that I expected more Americanisms .. there was opportunity to include so many more! But another wonderful novel, thoroughly enjoyed and well worth 4.5 stars.

My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources both for my copy and for inviting me to this Blog Tour. This is my honest, original and unbiased review.
