Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

The Cornish Key to Happiness by Laura Briggs

Past secrets return to complicate Maisie’s future with the charming Sidney Daniels in the final installment of the Cornish romance series.

Picking up where book seven left off, Maisie’s plans to celebrate her book’s thrilling news remain on hold after Sidney has vanished from Port Hewer overnight, following a brush with his secret past. His departure leaves Maisie with a head full of questions and a heart torn in two, made even worse by the rumors flying about him through the town. Where and why has he gone? Will he ever come back again? And—foremost in Maisie’s mind—was the heartache from his younger days somehow to blame for his sudden and mysterious flight?

But when Dean convinces her that Sidney may be facing a choice that could ruin his life, Maisie must set out to find him, once again leaving behind the Cornish seaside haven of Port Hewer she’s come to think of as home, and leaving behind the answer to a secret she’s been longing to know since the beginning. Not knowing when or if she’ll return, she’s taking the biggest risk with her heart so far…and the truth she discovers waiting for her at the end of her journey will make her wonder if things can ever possibly be the same as they were before.

Questions are answered, secrets are spilled, and the biggest reveal of the series is finally unveiled as A LITTLE HOTEL IN CORNWALL reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Review:

At last, all my questions about Maisie and Sidney have been answered – but not all as I had anticipated! This is an exciting finale to this fascinating series, one which ends with almost all of Maisie’s dreams coming true, but not quite in a way she’d expected. Life certainly keeps throwing curve balls in Maisie’s direction and this time when Sidney disappears she’s encouraged to follow him by Dean and what she then discovers has her re-evaluating all she knows or assumes about him.

The new revelations had me turning the pages, eager to discover more . I think this book is one that will be enjoyed more by people who have read the earlier books in the series, rather than as a standalone. There are new characters, some friendly and others definitely not, more secrets to be revealed and surprises galore in this heartwarming read. The ending will keep you on the edge of your seat before there’s yet another twist.

I’m actually quite sad if this really is the end of stories involving this lovely group of characters. I’d love to revisit Port Hewer to catch up on the news about the folk in this delightful community and see just how everything works out for them all. I’d also like Dean to have his own HEA, too, but maybe I’ll just have to use my imagination about them all.

Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for my copy of this book which I have read voluntarily and honestly reviewed.
