Bramble Challoner has had a very normal upbringing. She lives in a semi in the suburbs of London with her parents and works at the call centre down the road. She still goes out with the boy she met at school. At weekends they stay in and watch films on the telly and sometimes hold hands. Bramble is dying for an adventure.

So when her very grand grandfather, Lord Penrose, dies, leaving his huge, rambling house in Cornwall to her, Bramble packs her bags immediately, dragging along her best friend Katie. The sleepy village of Tremarnock had better be ready for its newest residents...

Really enjoyed this latest installment in the Tremarnock series. With it is the introduction of many new characters including Bramble and Katie who are moving to Cornwall from London. 

I liked seeing how Bramble would react to suddenly having  a whole manor house as her disposal, and the housekeeper was rather a surprise. 

I loved the variety of recurring characters in Tremarnock and always love seeing more from Liz and her family who are still by far my favourites. 

I found parts of Brambles story slightly on the predictable side, although there were elements that had me gasping out loud, and the ending did surprise me a bit too. 

This could easily be read as a standalone book, but since the others in the series are so good Iwould recommend those too!

Already very excited to learn there will be  a book 4 for this series, and can't wait to read it. 

Thank you so much to Head of Zeus and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
