Happy Sunday book lovers!
Delighted to share with you my review for this wonderful book! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the blog tour and to Jane Linfoot for her charming story😍
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…
4.5 Scrumptious Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5
Clemmie is being added to my ever-growing book BFF list! Loved her and her group of friends… you know the friendship is real when you are willing to dress up like a mermaid not just once but twice for your friends…. Tail and all! I’d love to go to the Little Cornish Kitchen and have a macaroon or two with these girls!
Clemmie has wanderlust never staying anywhere for too long… so when she returns home to check out the flat she is inherited from her grandmother, it is only temporary… even though she is enchanted by her grandmother’s eclectic beach front flat filled with memories, she insists this is still temporary… when she learns the repair costs of the flat she is determined to hold onto it… she especially does not want to sell it to her pushy neighbor Charlie… so she cooks something up to earn some money, still insisting this is temporary…
Clemmie and friends open a Singles/putting pop-up… with Clemmie making lots of yummy goodies from her grandmothers basket of recipes…. with several mishaps in the kitchen and frequent visits from her neighbor Charlie and his furry friends, this book kept me laughing and hungry! Loved the slow burning romance between clammy and Charlie…. and Charlie was quite brilliant he befriended all of her friends as well! The best way to a girls heart is through her friends, right?
Such a delightful book filled with fun, friendship, family, and yummy food! And I didn’t even mention the bit about Clemmie‘s long-lost father and brothers… Jane Linfoot I would be more than happy to visit the Little Cornish Kitchen in a future book, hint, hint!
An absolutely perfect summer read that will make your heart beat faster and your stomach rumble…

Author Bio – 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.
