Happy Tuesday booklovers!
Excited to share with you today my review for this cozy charming story that made me smile!😍
The Cottage in a Cornish Cove
A heart-warming tale of discovering all you never wanted is exactly what you needed.
Orphaned as a baby and raised by indifferent relatives, much of Anna Redding’s happiness as a child came from the long summer holidays spent with an elderly family friend, Aunt Meg, in the quaint village of Polkerran.
With Aunt Meg’s passing, Anna is drawn back to the West Country, relocating to the Cornish cove where she was once so happy. Filled with memories, she hopes to perhaps open a B&B—and perhaps cross paths with Alex Tremayne again, a local boy she used to have a major crush on and who only had to walk past Anna to make her heart flutter.
Settling into her new life, and enjoying her work for the older, reclusive and—to be honest—often exasperating Oliver Seymour, Anna is delighted when Alex reappears in Polkerran and sweeps her off her feet.
The stars are finally aligned, but just as Anna thinks all she’s ever wished for is within reach, a shock discovery brings everything under threat, and she finds herself living a dream that isn’t hers.
Can Anna rescue the new life she has made for herself and, when the testing moment comes, who will be there to hold her hand?
The Cottage in a Cornish Cove is the first in an uplifting series of romances from Cass Grafton. Get to know the locals, wallow in the quaintness of Polkerran, and fall in love with romance all over again.
This was a fun sweet story that made me say… aww! I love these feel-good small town stories that I like to call cozy romances, and when they’re set in Cornwall it’s even better. Lovable quirky characters and a delightful quaint setting. Anna has a good life. A job as a project manager and a nice house with lovely housemates. Even though her boyfriend Giles calls her babes *cringe* he is still… tolerable. But when she receives the news that she has unexpectedly inherited a cottage in Cornwall she decides to leave her old life behind (including Giles) and start a new. The cottage brings back her best childhood memories including that of her childhood/teenage crush.
I enjoyed every minute I spent with Anna and the other residence of this small Cornish town. Anna was a sweet relatable character that I would love to be friends with. The romance in the story was understated and cute. This was a charming and cozy tale that made me smile.

Cass Grafton – Bio
An avid bookworm since childhood, Cass Grafton writes the sort of stories she loves to read – heart-warming, character driven and strong on location. Having moved around extensively and lived in three countries, she finds places inspiring and the setting of her novels often becomes as much a part of the story as her characters.
She leans heavily towards the upbeat and insists on a happy ever after. As one of her favourite authors, Jane Austen, once wrote, ‘let other pens dwell on guilt and misery’.
Cass loves travelling, words, cats and wine but never in the same glass. She has two grown up children and currently splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and imaginary cats, and England, where she lives with her characters.
