A Little Hotel in Cornwall
by Laura Briggs
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?
A Little Hotel in Cornwall is the beginning of a new series of novellas that promise to be delightful!
I loved the fact that romance somewhat took a back seat in this book. This was the beginning of Maisie’s journey in discovering who she is and what direction she wants her life to go in. She is also quite likeable with a great sense of humor. I’m really looking forward to getting to know her better in future books.
This is a novella, but the writer didn’t leave anything out. Instead of short-changing her readers, she takes her time in developing the story and makes me really anticipate the next book in the series. On to top it off, she is a fabulous writer who wields magic with her words!!!!
