The Great Cornish Getaway by Fern Britton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
As the sun sits high in the sky over Cornwall, and the sea breeze brings a welcome relief to the residents of the seaside village of Trevay, a stranger arrives in need of a safe haven.
The fact that the stranger is a Hollywood heartthrob makes villagers Penny and Dorrie even more keen to help. They both know what it’s like to feel that you need a break from life, and they bring the village together to keep their stranger’s secret. It’s not long before he’s helping some of the villagers find the answers to their own problems. In return, they find a place for him in their hearts.
Pendruggan: A Cornish village with secrets at its heart
This delightful Quick Read from Sunday Times bestselling novelist Fern Britton is full of her usual warmth and wit. It is the perfect way to treat yourself to a gorgeous escape to Cornwall.
I love quick reads, they are perfect if you don't have a long time and want to get into something.
I have never read a book by Fern so was unsure what to expect, this was a light summery story, set in a village that apparently features in one of her longer books.
Richard Gere is fed up with his Hollywood lifestyle and wants to get away from it all, so heads down to Cornwall, where he has links. Hollywood is going mad that he has gone missing and are on the hunt to find him.
It was an o.k read, not the best and I didn't understand why Richard Gere was the main character to be honest, perhaps he is mentioned in a previous book?
If you are looking for a quick light hearted read then give this one a go.
