A Cornish Affair by Jo Lambert- Feature and Review


Even in your hometown, you can feel like an outsider 

In the close-knit community of Carrenporth in Cornwall everyone knows everyone else’s business. Luke Carrack is only too aware of this. He’s been away for two years but nothing has changed – from the town gossips who can’t see past the scandal of his childhood, to the cold way he is treated by some of his so-called family.
The only person who seems to understand is local hotelier’s daughter Cat Trevelyan, although even Luke’s new friendship with her could set tongues wagging.
But Carrenporth is about to experience far bigger scandals than the return of Luke Carrack – and the secrets unearthed in the process will shake the sleepy seaside town to its core

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Cornish Affair by Jo Lambert is a 2019 Ruby Fiction publication.

A unique combination of mystery and romance-

Cat and Luke DO NOT have a ‘meet-cute’ experience. From there, every encounter solidified their feelings. But, after pitching in together to help an acquaintance, they forge an unexpected bond.

However, despite the building chemistry, Luke’s history leads him to believe Cat’s family would never accept him. In the meantime, both Cat and Luke will discover secrets and revelations from their past giving them both long overdue answers. But, a tragic unforeseen series of developments will tear the couple apart- maybe forever.

I tore through this book in record time. I couldn’t put it down! The story reflects on class distinctions, family secrets, and regrets, as well as featuring a slightly angsty love story and complex mystery. There is a lot going on, and occasionally, things got a little too busy, but everything came together quite nicely in the end.

This is a compelling and engrossing story fans of contemporary romance will love, but if you enjoy romantic suspense, this one might appeal to you as well.

Overall, a lovely story, with wonderfully well drawn characters, surrounded by all that lovely scenery!

4 stars
