Escape to the Cornish coast with a new heartwarming Tremarnock novel, perfect for fans of Jill Mansell and Philippa Ashley.

The Cornish fishing village of Tremarnock seems to have it all.

Charming houses cluster round the harbour where fishermen unload their catch each day. There is a pub, a corner shop and a brilliant restaurant. Everyone knows everyone else and mostly they look out for each other. But throw a stranger – a beautiful stranger – into the mix and all bets are off.

Vivacious Chabela Penhallow is on holiday from Mexico to find out more about her Cornish roots, but rumours soon start to fly. Why has she really come? What is she running from? Is there more to her than meets the eye?

The Girl Who Came Home to Cornwall is an engaging story of love, betrayal, despair, happiness and hope. Suddenly a peaceful seaside village is in turmoil and nothing will ever be quite the same again.

A Smoothly Flowing, Easy Read!      Stars 4


Hands up, this is my first read of this series but I may well go back to the start at some point – it’s very good!

Chabela Penhallow comes to Tremarnock to find out more about her ancestors; after all, with a surname like hers there is only one place her family can come from. The locals accept this bright Mexican into their community with curiosity in their hearts .. is there more to Chabela than first appears, and will she find what she’s looking for?

A truly lovely book in a marvellous coastal setting, this is an easy read full of warm characters with a story aimed at melting the coldest of hearts. Well written, smoothly flowing and with poignant details which all add up to a heartwarming read – and one which I enjoyed. If I do read the series from the beginning, it’ll have to wait for a bit as this one reveals what I imagine has happened in past volumes. Emma Burstall is definitely an author worth following, and this one deserves a full four stars.

My thanks to publishers Aria for my copy via NetGalley, and to Vicky Joss for my place on this tour. All opinions are, as always, entirely my own and completely honest.
