Hattie’s life was not going well. No job and nowhere to live until she moves into her late uncle’s cottage in Cornwall, to update it before selling it, for which she will inherit half the proceeds.
I loved the story to this book but got very frustrated with Hattie for not speaking her mind. She knew exactly what she wanted and who she wanted but would just not speak up. I won’t say anymore as I don’t want to include spoilers. It is this kind of writing which makes it a good book!
The characters were great in this book, typical country folk knowing everyone’s business.
I would thoroughly recommend this book for a truly uplifting, feel good read.

2.5 stars.

Hattie finds herself jobless, boyfriendless and homeless. An opportunity arises to spend some time in her late Uncles cottage in Cornwall before it sells.

Unfortunately there wasn’t enough character development for me. I have lots of questions about Hattie’s life before heading to Cornwall and would have liked more. I was also a little disappointed by the lack of description. It is set in such a beautiful part of the world and it just didn’t come to life for me. 

But it’s a lovely lighthearted and easy read. I flew through this in just two days and it was warm, fuzzy and it’s predictability was comforting. A hug in a book!

A lovely book I’m enjoying such a feel good romance you enjoy the characters are amazing you love this story. I love Hattie character such a caring woman she love taking photographs of people and there a talking parrot in the story if you love parrot then this book is for you. I loved that Hattie move to a summer town cottage that been left to her in her will and she has to clean it up for someone to buy it for her share with her and her dad.  I love the fake dating with Hattie and Marcus have at the start. Marcus is a lovely person so caring and he loves parrot and love Hattie. This is such a brilliant story I love.

A quick, easy read ideal to unplug your mind for a few hours, in a beautiful setting, with enjoyable characters.

Received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 

An entertaining and satisfying read set in lovely Cornwall.   A little predictable and I would have preferred to avoid the usual misunderstandings.  (jealous woman creates problems which could have been sorted out speedily by simply asking Marcus what was going on!).  

But a nice, easy comfortable read.  4 stars

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for an early review copy. 

After being made redundant and being evicted from her flat in the space of a week, Hattie needs some tie to rethink what she’s going to do next. 

Uncle Albert, used to live at Fisherman’s Rest, a cottage in the Cornish town of Port Meddon, which in his Will he left half to Hattie and the other half to her dad. So the cottage seems, to Hattie the place to go to until she decides what to do next. 

As time goes by and Hattie stays in the cottage, now clearing it out and giving it a general tidying it up as her dad wants to sell it, she begins to find her feet in the Cornish town and is thinking that if she made a home here for herself, it wouldn’t be the wrong thing to do. 
But, as her dad is after a quick sale, not to mention things being a bit complicated by her neighbour Marcus maybe leaving would be the right thing to do, or would it......

homeless and jobless, Hattie has headed to Cornwall to stay in the cottage left to her and her dad by her lare uncle.
She doesn't get on wth neighbour Marcus, but soon they come to a truce and become more than friends. What will happen when it is time for Hattie to sell the cottage and move on?
I liked how it is told from both of their points of view and it is in a great setting.
