Thank you for stopping by! I’m delighted to be sharing my review today for Spring at the Little Cornish Gift Shop by Rachel Griffiths. With a big thank you to the author for my copy! First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
Jake Woodhouse has stayed on at Driftwood Cottage for longer than he planned, but he just can’t seem to find the will to move on. It’s partly to do with the fact that he loves the location, but also because he doesn’t like the idea of leaving his friend Ruby Penrose behind.
Ruby is enjoying being back in Cornwall, working at the Little Cornish Gift Shop, eating all the delicious food her nanna makes and spending time with Jake. Her creative flair has also returned and she’s been working on a few different projects.
A shock phone call from his mother forces Jake to consider his options. He still has issues from his past hanging over him and he knows he can’t really move on until he deals with them.
When Jake leaves, Ruby knows it’s for the best, but she can’t help wondering what might have happened if he’d stayed.
This is the second short story in The Little Cornish Gift Shop series.
If you are looking for a charming and uplifting short story then look no further! Spring at the Little Cornish Gift shop is book two in The Little Cornish Gift Shop series and once again we catch up with Ruby and Jake. I guess I would suggest reading the series in order just so you get a better understanding of the characters. Plus they are the perfect length to read in an afternoon or in an evening.
I loved seeing more of the friendship that Ruby and Jake had built up from the beginning of book one. Then add in the wonderful sparks of chemistry that this pair share and I was really hoping that they would finally have that push and get together. However it’s not all smooth sailing especially when there is a little bit of tension as Jake’s past comes back to haunt him.
Rachel Griffiths has created a wonderful setting within this book making me wish I could actually go there for a visit! With characters that you will root for along with some brilliant canine companions that for me made this book even more charming. The author also managed to put in a few surprises that made things interesting, I can’t wait to see what will happen next!
Spring at the Little Cornish Gift Shop will make you smile along with feeling all warm and cosy!
