It’s not all plain sailing, though, because they have to keep their relationship a secret. The feud between their families still rages on, and Kerra doesn’t want to pour fuel on its flame and risk losing everything.

my thoughts

Kerra has returned home from London to Penvennan Cove, and things are going well.  She’s with all the people she loves, has set up her own business and has got together with the man of her dreams.  The only problem is her Dad and her boyfriend, Ross’ Dad have been feuding for years, and sadly they feel like the only way to move forward is to keep their relationship a secret.  But in a small village like Penvannan, is that even possible? And what will happen if the truth comes out?
We all know how much I love a book set in a little Cornish village and so this was right up my street.  I love the fact that it’s a small gossipy village with some brilliant, unique characters (although I probably wouldn’t want to live there myself!). Linn does a wonderful job of bringing the village to life and you’ll just want go there!
I really liked Kerra and Ross and was routing for them all the way through.  I found it sad that, at their age, they had to keep the relationship secret but this just kept me hoping that they’d get their happily ever after!  There are a lot of other characters in this, and the only downside to this book is that it’s actually book 2 in a series (which I wasn’t aware of).  I found it hard to begin with to understand who was who, so would definitely recommend reading the first one beforehand.
I did really enjoy the story though, the writing style was wonderful and easy to read, and the setting was perfect.  I’d definitely like to read book 1, and I’m sure would have given more stars if I had.  My advice, definitely check this series out but read book 1 first – and then read this!  If you’re a fan of cosy villages and romances, then this is for you!
