Happy publication day to Laura Briggs and her lovely, uplifting novel ‘A Little Hotel in Cornwall’.
A Little Hotel in Cornwall
Struggling American waitress and aspiring novelist Maisie Clark dreams of becoming a full-time writer — even though in real life she’s just lost her chance at an exclusive writer’s mentorship program that would give her novel its big break. Desperate, she decides to take a chance and ask her favourite writer, a celebrated but reclusive English novelist, to help her find a second chance.
When she receives the author’s reply in an envelope with a Cornish postmark, Maisie decides not to take the writer’s half-hearted ‘no’ for an answer. With nothing to lose, she takes off for the author’s last known location, a beautiful hotel on Cornwall’s western coast. But when the hotel mistakes her for the latest applicant for a maid’s position, Maisie finds herself given an opportunity too good to lose … and a chance for a summer adventure far bigger than she ever imagined.
Surrounded by breathtaking Cornwall and working in an elegant hotel, Maisie’s world becomes one of secret identities, quirky friends, and unintentional mishaps — and despite reminders of past relationship disasters, a certain handsome, charming local resident Sidney Daniels has her conflicted about her heart’s desires, too.
Will Maisie find the chance she’s been waiting for — and a possible new romance — in her perfect Cornish summer?
This is a delightful book. Our heroine, Maisie, is desperate to become a novel and needs someone to mentor her. The most suitable person she can think of now resides in a hotel in Cornwall. So what does her determined young American lady do? Take a plane and track him down, of course! Throw in some mistaken identities, love interest and other distractions, and the result is a sparkling, interesting and distinctive novel that’s thoroughly entertaining and a real pleasure to read.
Maisie is a wonderful character, so genuine and committed. You could nearly say pushy, but because her heart is in the right place and she’s driven by enthusiasm rather than conceit or entitlement then you cheer her on in her endeavours to get what she wants.
The setting for most of the story in Cornwall is superb with so much detail and atmosphere. The story is intriguing and original and beautifully told. It’s a brilliant book!
