Title: Coming Home to Penvennan Cove
Author: Linn B. Halton
This is a lovely story with Kerra returning to her Cornish hometown after successfully developing a London based company which she has sold for a seven figure sum. She’s still worried about her employees, especially her friend and supporter, Sy, but knows it is time to return to keep an eye on her Dad and face her past. She never really felt she fit in the Cornish community, but she’s really missed it all and her Mother’s untimely death has awakened her to the need to return. She’s moving into the cottage that used to belong to her Grandmother, now that the tenant has moved out. However, she has no plans on letting the locals know just how successful she was, wanting to be accepted for who she is rather than her bank balance. Will she settle back into this small community? What will she do next? How will the locals react to her? All will be revealed as the story develops, but you need to read it for yourself to discover!
This is a fabulous story, showing how family and friends react to someone returning home. Kerra’s cousin is something of a nightmare . . . . her Dad is fiercely independent and offers to help Kerra financially if she’s struggling . . . . there’s also Drew, her neighbour, who is an architect with plans . . . . a school best friend who is need of help . . . . and the boy who was her schoolgirl crush is now an attractive man. With dogs, an independent cat, mysterious strangers and a variety of romances, this is a gorgeous story, delightful to escape into and a fabulous read. There are plenty of surprises as the story progresses and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Many thanks to Aria and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
Can Kerra’s Cornish hometown offer the fresh start she needs?
When Kerra left the quiet Cornish town of Penvennan Cove for the bright lights of London she didn’t look back. But after the death of her mother, she’s decided it’s time to face her past and return to the place she called home. Her father needs her, and perhaps she needs him more than she’s willing to admit?
Tackling town gossip, home renovations and a flame from her past, it’s not quite smooth sailing for Kerra. Ross is the bad boy she was meant to forget, not a man who still sets her heart aflutter. As he helps bring her dream home to life, they begin to break down the barriers that have been holding them back and in the process learn things about themselves they never thought possible.
As friends old and new come together, the future in Penvennan looks bright.
Perfect for fans of Milly Johnson, Phillipa Ashley and Julie Houston.
