Book Review: The Cottage in a Cornish Cove by Cass Grafton.

I'm suffering from book hangover. I finished 'The Cottage in a Cornish Cove,' on Sarturday, after spending the majority of my day reading it, and I miss the characters so much. You know when you've just finished a book and it was so good that you spend the rest of the day walking round with a lovey dovey smile on your face and you keep going to pick up your kindle thinking that you're still in the middle of reading, because your brain is still in the story and you feel warm and fuzzy inside? Yeah? Well that's what I was like on Saturday, thank you Cass Grafton!!! 

The Blurb.

A heart-warming tale of discovering all you never wanted is exactly what you need.

Orphaned as a baby and raised by uncaring relatives, much of Anna Redding’s happiness as a child came from the long summer holidays spent with an elderly family friend, Aunt Meg, in the charming village of Polkerran.

With Aunt Meg’s passing, Anna leaves behind her life in the north of England, relocating to the Cornish cove where she was once so happy.

Filled with memories, she hopes to perhaps open a B&B—and perhaps cross paths with Alex Tremayne again, a local boy she used to have a major crush on and who only had to walk past Anna to make her heart flutter.

Settling into her new life, and enjoying her work for the older, reclusive and—to be honest—often exasperating Oliver Seymour, Anna is delighted when Alex reappears in Polkerran and sweeps her off her feet.

The stars finally seem to be aligned, but just as Anna thinks all she’s ever wished for is within reach, a shock discovery brings everything under threat, and she finds out she’s living a dream that isn’t really hers to hold.

Can Anna rescue the new life she has made for herself and, when the testing moment comes, will anyone be there to hold her hand?

My Review.

I had been meaning to read this book for quite a while, after I read and loved Cass Grafton (and Ada Bright's) Austen Adventures books, but it wasn't until last week that I finally got round to ordering it and boy am I glad I did! There was something about Anna from the beginning that made me warm to her immediately and while I started reading it on a few evenings during the week, I completely devoured it on Saturday. Honest to goodness, my butt wouldn't get up off the couch until I read one more chapter!!!

I'm a sucker for romance and this book just had me swooning left right and centre. I loved the story, the memories, Anna and her ability to work around the clock - she seriously was incredible at getting things done! But, most of all I LOVED the relationship between Anna and Oliver. Now here's the thing, I do not want to give too much away. Is it work related, a new friendship or more? You will have to read it to find out. I could gush, I could...but I can't because you simply MUST read it!

I want to gush, I do...

… but I can't. I could be gushing about anything, about all of it! You'll never know until you read it!! 

Not only did 'The Cottage in a Cornish Cove' have me completely romanced and feeling happy, it also made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion. My husband kept looking at me from the other end of the couch, because I kept giggling!! It was so funny!! I loved it so much!! 

I could go back and read it again! I really could. I loved the setting, the house, the story, the food. I loved the cast of characters, some maybe a bit too much... I shall say no more!! My lips are sealed!!!

Get your copy of 'The Cottage in a Cornish Cove,' today and then tell me what you loved too!!! All my rambling will make sense then I promise! :)

Happy, Happy Reading!
