  • Not impressed

    Badly researched (especially if you live in or know Cornwall). Very lightweight "book" and wish I hadn't wasted my time reading it. The book starts in Newquay and our heroine - who doesnt' explain why she is in Newquay, elects to get the train to Par on her way to Truro, a journey time of at least 1.5 hours if not more and the train from Newquay only runs twice a day. She could have caught a bus (one hour journey time) or a taxi would have taken 20 minutes. She describes Truro as a mix of traditional and very modern buildings - wrong. It is all just very silly and unbelievable. She said the residents of Newquay move to Truro for the summer? Just wrong again - who would?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Heath

    3.5 Stars The first thing that strikes you about the book is that the author has probably never set foot on British soil, let alone visited the places she is writing about. There is much that is American about the book and very little that is British, from the language to the locales none of it ever really feels centred in the locale that it purports so proudly to be set in. Strangely this was not an insurmountable problem for me as the writing is breezy and moves the plot along at a generous pace which stops you getting bogged down in the minutiae of both the plot and the writing; neither of which would really stand up to close scrutiny. The one thing that did irritate was the nicknaming of Matthew to Ross - I really find it very hard to believe that native Cornish people would go down the Poldark route (as good as it may have been for Tourism). Not helped by me doing a reverse turn on the American writing about a location she has never visited by automatically seeing Ross as the esteemed Mr Geller from Friends rather than Poldark. The characterisations are painted rather broadly but somehow still seem to have a depth and realism that did manage to surprise me. Julianne in particular is a good human mix of emotions and behaviours and prone to being a bit of a cow on occassion - makes a nice change from the overly lovely people we often meet in books. I did enjoy this book as a light, frivolous read that would have been ideal for the commute (if I had one) as it was easy to dip in and out of.

  • Enjoyed this!

    I really enjoyed this book apart from a couple of things - there is no gravy in a pasty and it has no spice in it and not sweet ! Nice to have a story that isn't completly finished between the 2 main characters, this is just the beginning for them.

    Thanks for your feedback!
