I really enjoyed the author's first book Cornish Cream and Pilchards so was delighted when this was released - a return to St Larnack and its inhabitants, and settled down for a nice cosy kindling session on the sofa.

The story starts with village newcomers, David and Jane Pascoe unearthing a small tin initialled brooch in their garden. Jane's insatiable curiosity and determination to return the broach to it's original owner open up a whole can of worms and bring fresh heartbreak to one of the villagers, Jeannie, who thought a 60 year old secret was dead and buried. The secret now seems to be about to come into the open, but bringing with it even more pain, as there is more to the story than even Jeannie knew at first.

What starts off as a cracking read, full of good characters, narrative and dialogue, unfortunately for me seemed to go off track about two thirds of the way through. The story behind the lost broach was excellent, but I did guess how it was going to end up long before it emerged in the book and to me it seemed a predictable way for the author to draw the story to a conclusion, albeit the circumstances are pretty far fetched and unbelievable.

As with the last book there are "subtales" going on in the background - we have Linda Penney (Searle) picking up the pieces of her new life now that she has ditched her swine of a husband Joe, from the last story. In addition there are newcomers to the village Brian and Ann Roberts. I was disappointed with the way their story ended - the author did a great job of building their story but the crucial incident was not included in the book, only referred to and anticipated with excitement, only to find that incident merely alluded to later on in the book, which left me feeling cheated a tad.

Another good read by this author. Having read the previous book by this author i was interested in their next book. I have to say i was equally pleased with this novel, it captivated my imagination from the very beginning, very unique and full of trademark wit...more please Chris!

I enjoyed the storyline very much, but was distracted at times by a weird method of indenting paragraphs, missed out words, misspellings and poorly used punctuation. A great shame, as the core of the story is good, which is why I've given it a five star rating. The author needs to take more care whilst writing in order to eliminate errors and the proof reader, if indeed there was one employed, should be sacked forthwith.

I seem to have been reading a lot of light, well-written books lately. They all have one thing in common - lots of coincidences and jumping between times. This is one such - very easy to read (took me a day) and soon forgotten. I shall remember the name for when I want another understanding read.

Some reviews say this was not a good book to read but I found it a pleasure, it was easy reading with a slight twist, easy to put down and pick up at a later stage and get straight back into story, will be down loading more of Chris Metherell

The ending seemed to speed up as if the author lost patience with the story. The characters were ok to begin with but little thought to their personalities and stories,towards the end of the book. Everything was bitty and too hurried to make it pleasant.

Being Cornish the title grabbed me first! While the book is a love story it also has a mystery through it as well. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be seeing if there are any others similar to it. It's a well recommended read.

The story captured me right from the start, I knew most of the characters from the first book and I was pleased to find I was right where I had been left. Easy reading, I could hardly put it down, there must be more than this?
