St Aidan: a cosy Cornish village where friendships are made for life and it’s always cocktail hour somewhere…The Little Cornish Kitchen is going on tour!
When internet sensation ‘Cressida Cupcake’ has a soggy bottomed TV fiasco and faces bake-off backlash she jumps at the chance to spend some time hiding out in St Aidan, dog sitting for her brother.
Picturesque Seaspray Cottage is meant to be Cressy Hobson’s port in the storm but with her blog sponsors having fled and her book deal gone sideways her funds are running low and she’s forced to turn to the locals for help. Soon her quiet weeks in Cornwall are filled with chasing sheep, saving the local retirement village, taking The Little Cornish Kitchen into people’s homes for baking nights…and keeping vigilant guard against romance.
The one and only time Cressy lost her head to love was over a decade ago while in St Aidan, and she won’t be making the same mistake again – a feat easier said than done when Ross Bradbury looks even better a decade on…and every step she takes seems to put him in her path!

Cressy is an internet sensation called Cressida Cupcake but when things go sideways during a bake-off she runs at the opportunity to go in hiding, at the St Aidan.
When she starts to run low on money she is forced to turn to the locals for some help.
She promises herself she will not make the same mistake she did a little over a decade ago. But when Ross is looking better than ever that is a little hard to ignore. And every time it seems she he is always in her path.
Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen is a sweet, engaging story that reminds us that sometimes it's nice to settle down, make roots, and have a place to call home.
I couldn't get enough of these wonderful characters you care about these characters, and can read about them and their lives and feel more connected to them.
This book has the perfect mix of laughs, warm friendships, sparks of attraction and beautiful moments one will not forget. They are so well written and very likable.
Because of Jane Linfoot's expressive and sparkling descriptions the story comes to life incredibly well.
Full of fun, great moments, and laughter. I couldn't wipe the smile of my face reading this or put this book down.
Jane Linfoot, has done an outstanding job and now I've got to read more!
One More Chapter,
Thank You for the chance to to read and review this eARC!
I will post and tag to my platforms closer to pub date!
This is a sweet and fun second-chance romance. We follow Cressida through her journey on St. Aiden's, including ups and downs, her reconnection with an ex, and her great reinvention. It will be interesting to catch up with her in the future. As an added bonus, there are yummy recipes at the end!
This book was sent to me by Netgalley electronically for review. It is a quick read...this author, Linfoot, weaves a story that is intriguing about characters who are totally believable. I enjoyed this book...cuddle up, get a warm afghan, light the fire, and enjoy an afternoon with these people...the story could be real...it could be just for fun...I liked this.
Love, love, love!!! Thank you so much for the opportunity to read this ARC. Looking forward to reading more from this author.
Cressida is an Internet star famous for baking cupcakes until things go seriously wrong in a baking TV show, so she escapes to St Aidan to doggy sit for her brother. There she bumps into Ross, with whom she had history many years before, and from which she is still recovering.
It's always a pleasure to return to St Aidan in Cornwall, I feel as if I would move there tomorrow, given half the chance. The community spirit shown, in this case for the village's retirement home, is uplifting, as is the way that Cressida is taken into the villager's hearts. This is the type of book that you can just sit in a quiet room, in the warm and enjoy - or even in a noisy room and just let everything go around you whilst you are lost in the story.
I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher through Netgalley, however this did not influence my review of the book.
