Can you leave behind Paris if your heart belongs in Cornwall?
With a gorgeous new life in vibrant Paris, Clemmie isn’t looking forward to heading home to the picturesque but sleepy village of St Aidan, Cornwall. However, when she discovers that her cosy apartment by the sea, which her beloved grandmother left to her, is under threat from super-hot but ruthless property mogul, 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 supper 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…
Thank you to Harper Impulse for my copy of this book via Netgalley and to Rachel for letting me be part of this tour. I saw this book on Netgalley months ago but I just hadn’t had the chance to read it so when I saw Rachel was organising a tour it was the perfect opportunity.
I’m going to say off the bat I really struggled with the beginning of this book. I found it was difficult to like Clemmie. I don’t know why I just couldn’t connect with her. The same for the mermaids and Charlie. The book clicked for me about 50-60% in. From then on I couldn’t put it down. Looking back I don’t know why I couldn’t click but I’m glad I didn’t DNF. The second half of the book was a lot more engaging and made up for the struggles at the beginning.
Charlie turns out to be quite the guy when you get to know him. He’s been through a lot and he’s not exactly what he seems at first. I kinda fell for him just a tinsey bit (A LOT).
Clemmie and the mermaids found a way under my skin and into my heart. With their singles nights and their crazy lives I actually really learned to like them.
This book made me extremely hungry. I was constantly thinking about food throughout it. I would recommend you do some baking before sitting down with this one.
