For a very British summer holiday…
When archaeologist Sam realises her relationship is as dead as the skeletons she’s exhuming, she knows it’s time to make a change. But with bills to pay her options are limited…until a discovery on Rock Island in Cornwall gives her a reason to escape…
Head to the Cornish coast!
In Cornwall, questions are thrown up at every turn: who is the glamorous owner of Rock Island that the paparazzi are so interested in? How has the irresistible, but impossibly arrogant, history professor James Courtney managed to get so far under Sam’s skin? And will it ever stop raining so Sam can lose the cagoule and sip a cool drink in the sun? One thing’s for sure: there’s never been a holiday quite like this one!
Enjoy a summer of surprises and romance with What Happens in Cornwall…, the perfect retreat for fans of Fern Britton.
What Happens in Cornwall looked and sounded like the perfect chick lit book to me. Surprisingly though it isn’t your average chick lit, it still has the romance that we love to read but it also had the air of mystery and suspense through out the story also.
Set in the picturesque setting of Cornwall this is certainly an ideal book to get you in that holiday mood.
Sam (Samantha) is a really likeable character who you can easily relate to, she has the same worries and concerns that runs through most of our heads at times. Her friendship with long time friend Becky certainly makes for enjoyable reading.
There are some wonderful characters in this book ranging from silly Italian photographers, a seemingly crazy stalker even down to two adorable dogs Doris and Henry. They certainly made the book more appealing and fun for me.
This is a really great read that I think everyone will love, the only slight downside for me was that throughout the book due to the mystery and suspense aspect to it, it felt like the story was really building up to something quite big but it just seemed to quietly end which left me slightly disappointed by the ending. Overall though I really enjoyed it and would certainly read more by the author.
Many thanks to Carina UK and Netgalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
