The Little Cornish Kitchen - by Jane Linfoot

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb: 

It's time to come home to Cornwall 

With an exiting new life in Paris, Clemmie Hamilton isn't looking forward to heading home to the picturesque but sleepy village of St Aidan, Cornwall. However, when she discovers that the cosy apartment by the sea, which her grandmother left to her, is under threat from neighbour and property developer, Charlie Hobson, Clemmie realises she can't abandon her home in its time of need.

With her childhood friends encouraging her, Clemmie decides to turn the apartment into 'The Little Cornish Kitchen' – a boutique pop up pudding club raising money for the repairs to the building in an effort to stop Charlie once and for all. But when Charlie and his easy charm won't seem to go away, everything soon becomes even messier than the state of Clemmie's Cornish kitchen… 

My Opinion:

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

It took me a really long time to get into this story. This fact actually took me by surprise, because I loved Jane Linfoot’s previous books. I somehow couldn’t connect to the storyline and the main character. 

I really like the idea behind the book and after a while I started warming up to the community and people in St Aidan. My fave part was by far the story being set in Cornwall. I think the author captured that beautifully and in a very charming way. 

I really wanted to like this book more, but there was something missing for me, especially from the main character. 
There were a lot of funny, romantic and sweet moments in this book and these helped me a lot with the story. 

Jane Linfoot actually had some little surprises in store for the reader and I’m really happy I finished the whole book. It’s warm and cozy and a wonderful summer read.
