Can Kerra’s Cornish hometown offer the fresh start she needs?
When Kerra left the quiet Cornish town of Penvennan Cove for the bright lights of London she didn’t look back. But after the death of her mother, she’s decided it’s time to face her past and return to the place she called home. Her father needs her, and perhaps she needs him more than she’s willing to admit?
Tackling town gossip, home renovations and a flame from her past, it’s not quite smooth sailing for Kerra. Ross is the bad boy she was meant to forget, not a man who still sets her heart aflutter. As he helps bring her dream home to life, they begin to break down the barriers that have been holding them back and in the process learn things about themselves they never thought possible.
As friends old and new come together, the future in Penvennan looks bright.
Perfect for fans of Milly Johnson, Phillipa Ashley and Julie Houston.
I always think I’m in for a treat when I open one of this author’s novels – and I’m always right!
Kerra left her Cornish home to head for the bright lights of London and make something of herself; after the death of her mother the lights don’t seem quite so bright and she head back home to Penvennan Cove to help out her father. But small places are full of gossip and speculation, and her life isn’t as anonymous as it was in the capital city, and meeting old friends isn’t always as stress-free as she hoped!
Another enjoyable read from Linn B Halton and I only had one problem with it – mine, not hers. I tend to read in accents and I’ve never really mastered the Cornish one; for some strange reason every time there was a Cornish name, in my head it sounded more Welsh! However, that doesn’t take away from what a terrific story this is. With a wide array of characters, a bit of mystery, a spectacular setting and a superb story it kept me riveted all the way through. A real feel-good read, and refreshing in these troubling times when everyone seems to be out for themselves to read a heartwarming book with a lot of community spirit. Tremendously enjoyable and well worth every single one of the five sparkling stars I’m happy to give it!
My thanks to the publisher for my copy and to Vicky Joss for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
