Tremarnock Summer – by Emma Burstall

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

The third instalment in Emma Burstall's heartwarming series, set in the Cornish seaside village of Tremarnock.

Bramble Challoner has had a very normal upbringing. She lives in a semi in the suburbs of London with her parents and works at the call centre down the road. She still goes out with the boy she met at school. At weekends they stay in and watch films on the telly and sometimes hold hands. Bramble is dying for an adventure.

So when her very grand grandfather, Lord Penrose, dies, leaving his huge, rambling house in Cornwall to her, Bramble packs her bags immediately, dragging along her best friend Katie. The sleepy village of Tremarnock had better be ready for its newest residents...

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

The Tremarnock Summer is the third book in the Tremarnock series and actually my first visit to Tremarnock.

Bramble Challoner enjoys hanging out with the boy she met at school. Staying in and watching films on the weekend, working during the week; but she wants more excitement and adventure in her life. Her grand grandfather dies and leaves her his house in Cornwall. Bramble is all up for it and goes to Cornwall with her best friend Katie.

They meet all these other chracters and there are a lot of things happening. At times there was a bit too much going on for me and I struggled a bit with the pace of the story. I also felt like there was a big mixture of characters and sometimes that was a bit confusing. I would definitely suggest reading the first two books oft he series, to get to know the characters and to have a better overview.

Emma Burstall’s writing style is descriptive, heartwarming and engaging. The setting is beautiful and together with the story it just creates a wonderful flair and atmosphere.


Emma Burstall was a newspaper journalist in Devon and Cornwall before becoming a full time author. Tremarnock, the first novel in her series set in a delightful Cornish village, was published in 2015 and became a top-10 bestseller.
