Spring is in the air at Cliffs House, the charming Cornish estate that Julianne Morgen has come to think of as home. Her next big event is a personal favor to her employer: coordinating the perfect wedding for Lady Amanda’s friend and mentor, artist Constance Strong, whose late-in-life courtship is worthy of the storybooks themselves. 

But as if helping Lady Amanda isn’t enough to occupy her mind, Julianne finds herself distracted by personal matters. Her long distance romance with Matthew Rose, the handsome and brilliant horticulturist has been on the rocks for weeks now – and when Matthew suddenly returns to Cornwall, he brings news with him that could change everything between them.

Can Julianne help Lady Amanda pull off the perfect surprise wedding for a case of true love? And no matter the odds they face, will Julianne and Matthew finally find their own happily ever after?

Another charmingly enjoyable book in Laura Briggs Cornwall series, which I am loving so far. This may be the third book, but I do think it works as a standalone, then again, each installment is under 100 pages, so would be quite easy to go back and read them all in order to get a full feel for the characters. 

This time around there are two main story lines, the progress of Julianne's on-off relationship with sexy Poldark-esque Matthew Rose, and also the short notice wedding that Lady Amanda wants Julianne's help with. 

The wedding is for Lady Amanda's godmother, a talented artist who really doesn't want a fuss, but since they are event planners, what was supposed to be a tiny gathering, turns into a far more elaborate reception than may have been anticipated, but still completely understated compared to the majority of events held at Cliff House. 

As someone who has been reading this series from the start, one of the characters in particular this time, is given a tough storyline, with a bit of emotional depth to it, which I wasn't expecting, but it was encouraging to see, in this otherwise relatively light hearted series. 

A Cottage in Cornwall is a pleasurable way to spend an hour or two, with its picturesque location, some creative cooking, and a beautiful back story to the couple getting married. 

Thank you to Laura Briggs for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
