It’s time to come home to Cornwall

With an exciting 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…

So, first of all, do not read this book without having some tasty treats around you, I got so hungry and have had such a craving for brownies ever since.

This is a wonderful story, I think going into it I thought it would be very romancey and not something I would need to concentrate much on but actually, there was so much more going on than I had anticipated and I got so engrossed in reading Clemmie’s story.

I really liked Clemmie, I loved that she was a bit of a nomad and not very good at responsibility but ended up discovering so much about herself and her past the longer she stayed in St Aiden. I also loved that she wasn’t a superstar at something to begin with, she had a lot of trial and error with her baking a lot of which made me laugh.

Her close knit group of friends were also great, I liked that they all had their differences and their different strengths and weaknesses. It definitely reminded me of my group of friends although I wish we’d come up with a catchy name for ourselves like the mermaids. I loved that they always had a scheme or a plan and did what they could to help each other.

There is, of course, the handsome Charlie who Clemmie can’t help but butt heads with, I really enjoyed the banter between them even though they were kind of rivals, they were able to good-heartedly rib each other. His hidden talent for baking was very endearing and I could see why Clemmie was softening to him.

This really was a great book with a brilliant setting, I really want to go and see the sea as well now, and some wonderful characters, I’m glad that this was so much more than I expected I love it when a book surprises me in that way. I will definitely be looking out for Jane Linfoot books in the future.

Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a muddy cottage, up a steep hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket.

Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feelgood books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines.

Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem.

Her latest books include a series of stand alone novels, based around a seaside wedding shop in Cornwall. Cupcakes and Confetti – The Little Wedding Shop by the Sea, Sequins and Snowflakes – Christmas at the Little Wedding Shop, and Bunting and Bouquets – Summer at the Little Wedding Shop, and most recently, The Little Cornish Kitchen. These are all published by Harper Impulse,  an imprint of Harper Collins.
