    I had high expectations for this book, but it simply was not the read for me. I envisioned a book more along the lines of a "Miss Read" book, but instead the narrative was "too modern" to engage me. While I think the intended audience is adult, the writing style struck me as being more...

    Sylvie and her 4 year old son Sam are heading down to the beach as they do on a regular basis (I love the detail of how they kicked their flip flops off, that was cute). They find their usual spot taken by Alex and his adopted daughter Ellie who is 5. Naturally, this is a talking point...

    We?re back in the little Cornish Village of Penmenna for the second book in this series.  Whilst it can be read as a standalone book, for continuity of the story it makes sense to read them in order! In this book we are introduced to Sylvie, a single mum who is preparing her son ...

    It was lovely to be back in Penmarra and the Cornish Village school. If you have read the first book then the setting and teachers will be familiar to you. If you haven't, fear not, this easily reads as a standalone with two new families and main characters. I really enjoyed ge...

    The Cornish Village School-Second Chances is the second book in the Cornish Village School series, written by author Kitty Wilson. Although each book can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the first book in the series, The Cornish Village School-Breaking the Rules. ...

    This one hit all my sweet spots- starting with the Cornwall setting! Heads up that there is some dialect here which you might want to sound out but it's no impediment to enjoying the book. Sophie, Sam, Alex, and Ellie are all looking for a new beginning, each for their own reasons. Of ...

    You know something, you all know already that this is going to be a bit of a rave-I adored book one (review here) of this series, and chances were pretty slim that I wasn't once more going to get all excited by the fact that I now have a new steadfast addition to my 'must read' romance...

    Although this is the second book in the series set in Penmenna, it is a completely new story and it really isn?t necessary to have read the first book at all to enjoy this one, it can be read completely as a standalone. Some of my favourite characters from book one reappear, but the ...

    The first book in this series was a 5 star read earlier in the year and this one did not disappoint. It is a heartwarming story filled with romance and relatable characters. The setting is always going to be a favourite of mine as I love Cornwall and this is most definitely a must read...
