The Cottage in a Cornish Cove by Cass Grafton

Today I am pleased to share with you my review of this wonderful and heartwarming new release from Cass Grafton. Thank you to Rachel's Random Resources for inviting me to join the tour and for my copy of the ebook in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. 

Book Description
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.

My Review
I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging and heartwarming read from the first page to the last. 
Anna Redding spent her childhood being brought up be relatives that did not seem to care too much for her after being orphaned when she was a baby. Anna's main times of happiness where when she went to stay with a family friend, Aunt Meg. Anna spent her long summers there in the small village of Polkerran. 
Anna is shocked when she hears the news of her beloved Aunt passing away. What she did not expect was to be be told she has inherited the house that has so many memories for her.
Anna has been getting fed up of the life she is living and decides life is too short. So she breaks up with her boyfriend, packs her bags and returns to Polkerran where she was always happy. Who knows she may even get to bump into the gorgeous Alex Tremayne, the boy that Anna had a huge crush on.
It doesn't take Anna long to get settled into her new life and he is making plans for the future by turning the house into a B and B which means she will be her own boss. 
Anna is enjoying being back in her happy place and her happiness increases when Alex returns to the village and a relationship blossoms between the two of them. 
Life is good for Anna until a shock secret threatens this new life she has. Will she find out more about her past and more about herself. Will she get to the bottom of the mystery and will her relationship with Alex be strong enough to see her through. 
This is a wonderful and heartwarming read that I really loved. The writing style the book is very light and flows well. The description of the village sounds iddilic and the perfect setting for some romance. 
I enjoyed getting to know all of the characters in this book. I really felt sorry for Anna knowing she had grown up with people that didn't really care about her. I think her Aunt Meg sounded wonderful and definitely made a difference to the life of Anna. 
This is the first book I have read from Cass Grafton but I loved it so much I will definitely be looking for more.

About the Author

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.
