Good morning my lovelies. I am absolutely thrilled to be on the blog tour today for A Cornish Wedding by one of my favourite authors, Jenny Kane. Yet again, she’s delivered a heartwarming, lovely read set in Cornwall that will put a big smile on your face and warm your insides like a good cup of tea!!! (and look at the beautiful cover – that makes me smile all on it’s own!!)
Perfect for fans of Cathy Bramley, Heidi Swain and Milly Johnson, A Cornish Wedding is the best kind of summer escape.
Abi has what she’s always dreamed of: her perfect Cornish cottage, great friends and a gorgeous boyfriend. But her idyll is shattered when a new neighbour moves in next door.
Rude and obnoxious, Cassandra doesn’t make a good first impression on Abi. But with the unexpected wedding of one of Abi’s friends to prepare for, Abi has bigger things to worry about.
However, avoiding her new neighbour proves harder than expected and Abi and Cassandra soon realise they might have more in common than they first thought. . .
But with the wedding only weeks away, can they set aside their differences before the big day?

I absolutely adored this. Having recently read A Cornish Escape I was looking forward to seeing what my favourite characters were up to, and attend a wedding!
Abi is settled in her house in Cornwall and enjoying her new life. But then she has a new neighbour move in, and when Abi’s kindness is thrown back in her face, she realises that everything she tried to escape may be following her…. Cassandra is cold and rude to everyone she meets, and she hates the seaside! As her own story is unravelled, she finds herself unable to avoid the friendly locals and starts to soften. But will she be able to sort out her problems, and will she finally let her guard down and let Abi and her friends in?
At the same time, there’s a wedding coming up in a few weeks and preparations are taking place. But will there be good news for more than just one of our favourite couples? You’ll have to read to find out!!
I adored this! Jenny has such a fantastic, easy and enjoyable writing style that completely draws you in and immerses you in the story. The descriptions are absolutely fantastic, and it’s like you’re in Cornwall. I could see everything in front of me and smell the salty air – it was fantastic. And it really, really makes me want to visit Cornwall ( I say this every time but it’s true!!)
The characters are all relatable, amazing and loveable, and you can’t help but be fully invested in them all. We’re back with the characters we fell in love with in A Cornish Escape; Abi, Max, Beth, Jacob and my absolutely favourites, Stan and Sadie! It was so lovely to be back with them, it was like catching up with friends after lockdown!! We’re also introduced to some new characters. Cassandra, the cold and rude business owner from London, thrown into Cornwall unwillingly. At first, I really didn’t like her, especially when she was rude to Abi! But as you get to know her, and she meets everyone, your opinion will definitely change. Dan, the Care Home Manager is back. We met him briefly in A Cornish Escape, but he takes a more prominent position in this, and he is wonderful. He has a past that he keeps close to him, and its heartwarming to get to know him better. And finally, Dora……she’s in her eighties with a crazy zest for life and a past supposedly working for MI5….! She is brilliant…out of all the new characters, I adored her. She surprised me constantly, and made me laugh with her brilliant bluntness that only older people get away with!
The plot is beautiful, funny, heartwarming and constantly put a massive smile on my face. I was completely shocked at times, there were (wonderful) things happening that I definitely hadn’t expected and I’m so glad they did. Watching some of the characters grow is so amazing, despite what they go through, it will fill you with joy. And then there’s the wedding…..It was honestly like I was there at my friends wedding celebrating with them, I even cried at the speeches!!
I honestly can’t praise this enough. I absolutely, wholeheartedly adored this and would really love another follow up so I can visit my favourite characters again. You don’t have to have read A Cornish Escape to read this, it’s perfectly readable as a standalone as Jenny has put all the info in that you need. But if you haven’t read A Cornish Escape too then I would if I were you as it’s equally as amazing.
If you are looking for your next heartwarming, adorable and immersive read that will take you on a beautiful journey, make your face ache from smiling and make you feel like you’re in Cornwall, then this is for you. This is the perfect read to lose yourself in and come away feeling uplifted and happy. Honestly lovelies, if feel good is your thing, then you need to check this out!! Absolutely 100% recommended my me!!
