I am delighted to share my review today for One Summer in Little Penhaven by Angela Britnell. My huge thanks to Rachel for my spot on the Blog Tour and also to Angela for my e-copy of this fabulous book.
Let’s have a look and see what it is about…
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?
Sam Muir is beyond disappointed when she doesn’t get the partnership she spent the last 10 years working towards. She kind of goes off in a huff and catches the first train to anywhere, it just so happens she ends up in Cornwall. She meets locals who make her feel welcome Oh and also warn her off local bad boy Caden Day!
I soon realised within a few chapters that this author knows Cornwall, she had me sniggering at the infamous tale-backs during the holiday season, and frowning at the second homes, and nodding in agreement with the setting. Along with the local vernacular, this author managed to create a setting that takes in the Cornish Scenery around the St. Austell area.
Now then, to Sam and Caden… well they say opposites attract! Sam is a feisty American and Caden a rough around the edges and a rather hunky sounding Cornishman. Rumours and gossip play a huge part in Caden’s life, rather than argue and prove his innocence he justs lets the rumour mill run. for Sam, however, this provides intrigue, a mystery even as she wants to know more.
Along with Sam and Caden, there are a few other characters that make up the local community. They add their own stories and opinion as well as the odd surprise.
This is such a lovely read and one that I quite happily lost myself in for a few hours. It flows nicely and has a good pace.
If you are a fan of Choc-lit and romance that has a really good storyline and a great cast then this is one that you will enjoy.
It’s one I would recommend.
