Title: Christmas at the Little Cornish Gift Shop
Author: Rachel Griffiths
Rating: 5/5 Festive stars!
What a delightful festive novella and brilliant start to a new series this proved to be! Ruby Penrose is a caring person who lost her job in a hotel whilst covering for the errors made by someone else. She’s ready to return to her childhood home and to reconsider her options. She hadn’t anticipated that her Nonna would have a handsome, new tenant in the nearby Driftwood Cottage. That tenant is Jake Woodhouse, someone who has his own reasons for leaving London and endeavouring to hide out in this small community. He’s also reconsidering his life options…… As attraction grows between the two there are more secrets to be revealed, family relationships to heal, dogs to be walked and even illnesses and a matchmaker in this fantastic festive read. I can’t wait to read the next books in this series as I want to know what happens next for the characters and community!
This is another sweet read from this talented author, just right for a relaxing hour or so read. It has great characters and , fo such a short story, their development is very well done. There are several mysteries to be revealed, relationships to heal and love to be found in this enchanting contemporary festive romance and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys escaping into a close knit community, with a great cast of characters – including a bulldog and greyhound- and the possibility of romance.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book without obligation. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
