Today is my stop on the blog tour for Lily Graham’s latest release, The Cornish Escape.
Get swept away along the beautiful Cornish coast with two love stories, centuries apart in time but entwined at their hearts.
Victoria Langley’s world crumbles when her husband leaves, but she knows exactly where to go to mend her broken heart. The rugged shores of Cornwall will be her perfect sanctuary. In the quaint, little village of Tregollan, nestled in the sea cliffs, Victoria is drawn to Seafall Cottage, covered in vines and gracefully falling apart. Inside she finds a diary full of secrets, from 1905. Victoria is determined to unravel the diary’s mystery, but the residents of Tregollan are tight-lipped about Tilly Asprey, the cottage’s last owner. Just as she reaches a dead end, Victoria meets Adam Waters, the lawyer handling the cottage’s sale. He’s handsome, charming, and has a missing piece of the puzzle. Tilly’s diary tells a devastating love story that mirrors Victoria’s own. Can Victoria learn from Tilly’s mistakes, and give herself a second chance at love? Or is history doomed to repeat itself?
As the blurb says, this book is an “unputdownable and gorgeously romantic read” and I have to fully agree. I love the authors writing style and the words she uses just flow and bring the characters to life and this book, her latest release is no exception. Its a lovely story about lost love and new beginnings set in the green hills and rocky cliffs of the breath-taking Cornish coast, the perfect setting for any novel of this nature and it really is a gorgeous holiday read. I loved the way the story developed in the present and past and both were beautifully told – 5 stars and highly recommended. Really enjoyed it!
About the author
Lily has been telling stories since she was a child, starting with her imaginary rabbit, Stephanus, and their adventures in the enchanted peach tree in her garden, which she envisioned as a magical portal to Enid Blyton’s Faraway Tree. She’s never really got out of the habit of making things up, and still thinks of Stephanus rather fondly.
She lives with her husband and her English bulldog, Fudge, and brings her love for the sea and country-living to her fiction.
