‘Beautifully crafted and wrapped in romance’ Heidi Swain
It's time to come home to Cornwall
With an exiting new life in Paris, Clemmie Hamilton isn't looking forward to heading home to the picturesque but sleepy village of St Aidan, Cornwall. However, when she discovers that the cosy apartment by the sea, which her grandmother left to her, is under threat from neighbour and property developer, Charlie Hobson, Clemmie realises she can't abandon her home in its time of need.
With her childhood friends encouraging her, Clemmie decides to turn the apartment into 'The Little Cornish Kitchen' – a boutique pop up pudding club raising money for the repairs to the building in an effort to stop Charlie once and for all. But when Charlie and his easy charm won't seem to go away, everything soon becomes even messier than the state of Clemmie's Cornish kitchen…
Well, was this not just the cutest, although my only gripe….it made me so hungry! I have even gone hunting for macaroons, I mean opening the book and just reading about them…torture…..still salivating now…….anyway moving swiftly on!
This book is cute! The author has created a group of friends, the mermaids (and seriously I want to be a mermaid!) who have been friends since the nappy days, always there for each other and still firm friends in the adult years – I loved this.
We follow Clemmie, the free-spirited one, she doesn’t want to be tied to a man or a house. She comes back to Cornwall for a paid holiday, to see her friends, and to sell a flat she had inherited. However, when the gorgeous broody Charlie wants to buy it from her, she has to make a decision and one that involved food and lots of it!!! What makes it worse is that Charlie and his gorgeous little dog, Diesel live right next door! There is just no escape for her.
With the sights of Cornwall, it was nice to read this book by the beach, soaking the sun and the sea, and I could have been sitting in Cornwall with the girls. Albeit not hungry, good thing I was reading on my lunch break. This book made me laugh a lot, want to go home and bake, and failing that just going buy everything in a bakery.
This is my first encounter with Jane and her stories, but I have had lots of her books on my TBR list for a while, I will need to change this and actually go and buy the book (Really sorry I have not done this before please don’t be upset with me!!) I thought this story was fab and so heartwarming, and to be honest, there is enough to go around for another book maybe…and another…..and another?? What do you think Jane…no pressure 🙂
