In Chessington, Bramble finds out she's been left a sizeable property by her Grandfather who she has never met. Polgarry Manor, which lies above Tremarnock Village is waiting for its new owner.
Will Bramble stay?, What will happen to Matt, her boyfriend of 20 years?, Who is the strange housekeeper? What's the deal with Fergus and his son, Wilf, who live in a cottage on the estate?
As time goes by, Bramble involves herself in Village life. Fortuitously, a property developer drops by and offers Bramble some advice, is all as it seems?
Twists, turns, happy and sad times all combine to make a great book in the series. I cannot wait to read the next instalment.
There was also a bit of an air of impossibility about it too. For a start, I would have thought Bramble's grandfather would have left her, or guided her towards, an experienced financial advisor and not left anything important reliant on chance findings. All the burdens and complexities of owning and running a huge (and dilapidated) manor house with no funds or any previous experience seemed to be made very light of and her sudden conversion from young Londoner to dedicated Cornishwoman just didn't ring true.
I did, though, think her depictions of places and people were colourful and evocative.
I love the author's style of writing which is easy to follow. The location in Cornwall is stunning and makes me want to go on holiday there. This is a lovely story of friendship and community. An easy read with an engaging storyline and interesting warm characters.
Perfect for a holiday read or for a cosy afternoon on a winter's day. I'm looking forward to the next installment.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
Looking forward to next book next year .
