    Festival Fun

    Loved this new series by Phillipa Ashley. Loved all the characters and how there lives entwined with each other. Can't wait for the next book.

    a perfect summer treat

    Porthmellow is the kind of place that I daydream about living in. It is beautiful, in Cornwall, by the sea and the people who live there care about one another. The setting for this book is an upcoming food festival. The residents we follow include Sam, the organizer; Gabe, who once dated Sam and is now a celebrity chef; Sam's sister and her partner, Ben; a mom, Chloe who has been estranged from her daughter and granddaughter and many other locals. Their stories are all told in a way that allows the reader to care about them. Over the course of the story, lives are lived, misunderstandings are cleared up and characters grow and love. If this is your kind of book, try this. It is an enjoyable read. Many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this escapist read. All opinions are my own.

    Gentle summer romance set at a food festival

    Three and a half stars. Centred around the Porthmellow 10th annual food festival this story features Sam(phire) Lovell, the festival's organiser. When the celebrity chef they had booked to star at the festival declares bankruptcy Sam's assistant Chloe manages to book Gabe Matthias, former Portmellow resident as a late replacement. Little does she know that Sam and Gabe dated, until the night he shopped her brother to the police and got him sent to prison. 10 years later can Sam ever forgive Gabe? Sam's assistant Chloe is hiding a secret or two of her own, will ship's captain Drew still like her when he finds out she's not quite who he thought she was? This is a typical English cosy romance featuring an ensemble cast, elderly locals with 'charming' accents, hunky chefs, awkward villagers, lots of evenings at the pub and quaint village life. I didn't hate it but I also wasn't enthralled by it. I spend so much of time these days complaining about the amount of sex in books that I feel a bit of a fraud complaining about the lack in this one, but I'm pretty sure the first time we see even a proper kiss was at 61% on my Kindle - balance people, balance! Anyway, if you are looking for a gentle, sweet, non-taxing romance, perfect for the beach then I reckon this will fit the bill. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

    Forgiveness, love, & calamity can heal our wounds

    So-called “summer reads “ should warm our hearts and soothe our souls. A Perfect Cornish summer does just that. Set in a beautiful coastal town of Cornwall, we follow Sam, local resident, business owner, and chair of the annual food festival, as she prepares for this year’s event. As they deal with an unexpected loss of a celebrity chef, Sam finds herself in the uncomfortable position of working with the town’s own celebrity chef and former resident with whom she has a history. Can time heal wounds and will love win out? The story of Sam and the other residents revealed itself at a good pace. It wasn’t over done, and the author wrote in a way that has you feel empathy for everyone concerned. The setting of the festival and the wonderful characters of Troy and Evie, a beloved couple who interject wisdom at just the right moments, keeps the characters moving towards forgiveness and the recognition that community and love can restore us. This is the first book in a new series by the author, and I look forward to reading the next installment. Thank you to Net Galley and Avon Books for an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
