Happy weekend all!
I just love everything Laura Briggs writes, and this has been such a fun series! 🦋
A Cornish Daisy’s Kiss
Weeks after boarding a train to Paris in pursuit of her writing dreams, aspiring novelist Maisie Clark is right back where she started: on the idyllic shores of Port Hewer in Cornwall, luggage in hand and heart filled with anticipation for what lies ahead. Except that nothing seems the same as Maisie left it, from her place among the staff at the hotel Penmarrow to her budding romance with groundskeeper Sidney Daniels, who isn’t quite ready to overlook the painful consequences of her sudden departure.
Losing Sidney would be unbearable, but Maisie can’t help fearing it might be true if the rift between them proves too deep to heal. She knows her feelings for him are unchanged, but whether he feels the same remains to be seen—particularly since she stopped him from expressing them in the first place. And to make matters worse, her position at the Penmarrow has been filled by another, there’s nowhere for her to live in the village, and her savings are finally dwindling to a pathetic number – with her book still unpublished after her startling discovery about the author helping guide her towards success.
But one thing which hasn’t changed is the drama and excitement at the hotel Penmarrow, where the staff is awaiting inspection from the dreaded owner Ms. Claypool. Stirring up trouble in the meantime is the owner’s special guest ‘Mad Ludwig’, an eccentric architect whose demands are definitely driving everyone on the staff a little crazy. And then there’s the hotel’s mysterious new desk manager, whose behavior ignites Maisie’s suspicions and causes her to become entangled in yet another form of intrigue—one that could unwittingly jeopardize the future of the Penmarrow and everyone who works there, unless Maisie can find a way to undo the harm.
With everything that matters to her most at stake this time, Maisie faces her biggest challenges yet…and her deepest question of the heart as she confronts the reason she returned to Cornwall and the Penmarrow in the first place.
Maisie is back in Cornwall at the Hotel Penmarrow. This is the sixth book in this charming series. Maisie has returned after traveling with who she thought was the author she had long looked up to. Maisie is an aspiring author and was hoping to be properly mentored, in the previous book we traveled with her and learned things were not quite as they seem. Now she is back, but things have changed. Her previous job has been filled, her previous living space is occupied, and Sydney the man she loves is acting distant. This book will probably be best appreciated if you have read the prior books in the series. Maisie is a great character and I have loved being on this journey with her. She’s had a lot of character growth throughout the series, and we’ve really seen the relationship between Sydney and her develop. This book had a generous dose of Mystery in it. The new front desk man is acting suspiciously, there is an architect in residence who is acting like a diva, and there still is a question as to who Alastair really is? Sydney and Maisie are trying to figure things out, after the hurt of being apart. It was nice to revisit the hotel, see old friends, and meet some new ones. The book ends leaving you wanting more.
