Summary

Return to the Cornish Café in this gorgeous, festive romance - the perfect book to curl up with this Christmas.

Christmas will be slightly less turbulent than summer, won't it? Demi certainly hopes so.

She and Cal are keeping their fledgling relationship under wraps for now. But then Kit Bannen, a hunky, blond - and somewhat mysterious - writer arrives at Kilhallon Resort, and not everyone is charmed. Cal is sure that Kit is hiding something. But is he the only one guarding a secret?

Demi is busy baking festive treats for the newly opened Demelza's café, but when Cal's ex Isla arrives to shoot scenes for her new drama, Demi can't help but worry that things aren't quite over between them. Kit flirts with both women, fuelling Cal's suspicions that Kit has hidden motives for staying on at Kilhallon. Then Cal has to go to London, leaving Demi and Kit to decorate the cafe for Christmas...all by themselves.

A storm is brewing in more ways than one. As surprises unfold and truths are uncovered, can Demi and Cal finally open up to each other about their feelings?

Christmas at the Cornish cafe

A lovely story set in an area of Cornwall near to Penzance where I have visited many times. What a good community it was when help was needed and Christmas wasn’t spoiled and all problems, family and others, resolved.

Good story, but...

Though I enjoyed the narrator’s voice, I had a hard time following who was talking because her voice didn’t change between characters for the most part.
