Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen by Jane Linfoot
When internet sensation ‘Cressida Cupcake’ has a soggy bottomed TV fiasco and faces bake-off backlash she jumps at the chance to spend some time hiding out in St Aidan, dog sitting for her brother.
Picturesque Seaspray Cottage is meant to be Cressy Hobson’s port in the storm but with her blog sponsors having fled and her book deal gone sideways her funds are running low and she’s forced to turn to the locals for help. Soon her quiet weeks in Cornwall are filled with chasing sheep, saving the local retirement village, taking The Little Cornish Kitchen into people’s homes for baking nights…and keeping vigilant guard against romance.
The one and only time Cressy lost her head to love was over a decade ago while in St Aidan, and she won’t be making the same mistake again – a feat easier said than done when Ross Bradbury looks even better a decade on…and every step she takes seems to put him in her path!
Before signing up for this blog tour, I hadn’t read Book One (I had read other Jane Linfoot books), however that soon changed and, I absolutely loved it, so I was eager to read the follow up. I’m glad I did because Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen was everything I expected and much more.
I enjoyed reading how Cressy kept rebuilding herself, and even more so after such a public downfall. It was nice to see her and Ross reconnect and how supportive the Mermaids are from day one. Oh and not forgetting the shenanigans of Diesel.
I laughed. I cried but most of all I fell in love with St Aidan, the story and it’s wonderful array of characters.
I highly recommend this book and it’s predecessor.
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines, and lots of heart.
Writing is fab, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a cottage up a mountain road in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the domestic chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things french. When I’m not on facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be walking, or gardening. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.
