Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
One Summer in Little Penhaven
Could one summer change your life?
When high-flying American lawyer Samantha Muir finds out she’s lost her partnership whilst on an assignment in London, she has a dramatic reaction.
Rather than returning home, she resigns, leaves her business suits behind and jumps on the first train to Cornwall at the encouragement of a friendly stranger.
The village of Little Penhaven, where Samantha eventually ends up, is a world away from her life in Knoxville, Tennessee – and local farmer Cadan Day is certainly a world away from any man she has met before. But could the Cornish village and Cadan play a part in Samantha’s summer of self-discovery?
Sometimes fate seems to intervene to steer characters to their HEA and that’s certainly the case in this delightful romance!
American lawyer, Samantha Muir, is over in London with her boss and a colleague. When the boss takes them out for a celebratory meal, Sam assumes she’s about to be offered the partnership she’s worked so hard for, so when it is given to her colleague instead Sam is beyond rebellious! She goes back to her hotel room, emails her resignation with immediate effect, packs and heads for the nearest train station. Undecided where to go, a friendly stranger takes her with her to stay with her in Little Penhaven in Cornwall. That’s the start of a life changing adventure for Sam, read it for yourself to discover more about this community and how Sam changes their perceptions of events from that past that have impacted on how they are treating one of their own.
The community is brought to life with an eclectic mix of villagers all making it seem more believable. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and felt I was actually there, witnessing, joining in and being part of events as they unfolded. There’s tragedy, secrets, smugglers, surprises, revelations and not one but three romances in this heartwarming story. It really is a great summer story to enjoy whatever the season and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys stories with strong female leads, where the ladies are determined, resourceful and resolute in helping their men – even when the men don’t realise it!
