The Cornish Key to Happiness Laura Briggs 5*#Review #ALittleHotelinCornwall #RomCom #series #mystery #romance #humour #friendship #community #Cornwall #BookReview #PublicationDay

Past secrets return to complicate Maisie’s future with the charming Sidney Daniels in the final installment of the Cornish romance series.

Picking up where book seven left off, Maisie’s plans to celebrate her book’s thrilling news remain on hold after Sidney has vanished from Port Hewer overnight, following a brush with his secret past. His departure leaves Maisie with a head full of questions and a heart torn in two, made even worse by the rumors flying about him through the town. Where and why has he gone? Will he ever come back again? And—foremost in Maisie’s mind—was the heartache from his younger days somehow to blame for his sudden and mysterious flight?

But when Dean convinces her that Sidney may be facing a choice that could ruin his life, Maisie must set out to find him, once again leaving behind the Cornish seaside haven of Port Hewer she’s come to think of as home, and leaving behind the answer to a secret she’s been longing to know since the beginning. Not knowing when or if she’ll return, she’s taking the biggest risk with her heart so far…and the truth she discovers waiting for her at the end of her journey will make her wonder if things can ever possibly be the same as they were before.

Questions are answered, secrets are spilled, and the biggest reveal of the series is finally unveiled as A LITTLE HOTEL IN CORNWALL reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Thoughts…

This is the final chapter, in this lovely series, and it’s is full of heartache, insight, mystery and romance. Maisie sets off on a mission to find Sidney. There are new characters to meet, and answers to the secrets Sidney’s hidden from her. There’s angst for Maisie and a choice for Sidney. This story has a vividly written plot with vibrant characters and a heartfelt conclusion.

This is a series worth reading for its originality, quirkiness and gentle romance.

A Stargazy Night Sky Laura Briggs 4* #Review @PaperDollWrites A Little Hotel in Cornwall #RomCom #Romance #Cornwall #Heartwarming #BlogBlitz #BookReview #AStargazyNight

Starry autumn nights are bringing a rare celestial event and exciting new guests to the shores of the sleepy hotel Penmarrow.

Maisie is happy to be back among its staff, even with the question of its future ownership still in the air and the fate of her unpublished manuscript soon to be in the hands of London acquisitions editors. More than anything else, she’s happy to finally be in a relationship with Sidney Daniels, the sparks between them no longer denied. She’s excited for the future and things couldn’t be better with regards to romance … except for those lingering little questions about Sidney’s uncertain past, that is.

Meanwhile, the staff at the Penmarrow is tasked with hosting a special celestial conference where stargazers are gathering for a glimpse of the much-anticipated comet. The ever-timid maid Molly is flustered by the return of charming astronomer George and seems to need a little advice on how to rekindle the spark they shared last autumn. Hotel porters Gomez and Riley vie for the attentions of a mysterious female guest, the eccentric ‘Megs’ Buntly pays another visit, and a dramatic revelation about someone on staff will leave Maisie and everyone else reeling from the unexpected news. Is this the moment for the revelation Maisie has been waiting for since her Cornish journey began?

Brimming with humor, romance, and the kind of surprises its fans have come to expect, the seventh book in the series brings a twist at the end that’s sure to leave readers excited — and anxious — for the conclusion of Maisie’s original gorgeous Cornish adventure.

My Thoughts…

I have only read a couple of books in this delightful series but they do read as a standalone. I’m looking forward to reading the full series when I can. This story sees Maisie back at the little hotel in Cornwall which is a hive of activity with a celestial conference, hence the title. The characters are quirky but relatable, and the story’s ambience makes this a heartwarming read.

There’s a mystery to solve and a few questions that seem to span the series, like what is Sidney, Maisie’s love hiding about his past? The humorous moments are numerous and show the author’s keen observational insight.

The hotel has a busy ethos, and there are lots of characters that will be familiar to fans of the series. Romance is in the air for one of the quieter characters but will it end happily? Maisie continues to offer insight into her writing process, which is fascinating for readers and eagerly awaits the outcome of her submission.

The final book in the series follows where hopefully all the mysteries will find a solution and the lovers will find their happy ever after?
