Event planner Julianne Rose has her hands full as Cliffs House prepares for the manor's first Christmas open house in decades. But with her husband Matt temporarily teaching on the other side of the Pond and their baby to care for, it's all Julianne can do to focus on the festivities--and she's not the only one. Her friend and former assistant Kitty has a quandary of her own to solve, Pippa has an unruly child demanding sweets, and even visiting Dinah's gingerbread biscuits can't fully cheer them as the holiday grows near. And as the weather threatens to cancel overseas flights, Julianne can't help but worry that her much-anticipated Christmas plans with Matt are in jeopardy.

Will it be a Christmas to remember at Cliffs House? Will dangerous winter weather keep Matt from returning home in time for the holidays? And is Julianne and Matt's baby as adorable as everyone imagined? These answers and more await readers new and old in one more visit to Julie's beloved Rosemoor Cottage and seaside manor of Cliffs House.

This is the book that I didn't know I was waiting for. Julianne and the gang back at Cliffs House for one last story, and one with an ending that hasn't driven me mad this time! 

We get all the big characters from the series return for the Christmas Eve party, and while Julianne is waiting for Matt to return from Boston, she is reminiscing about instances relating to many of the other books in the series. 

This is full of well nostalgia for lack of a better word for the whole series,  and has a sweet story in it too, the will he won't he be back in time for Christmas. 

The scary house keeper from the last book is back but is starting display some empathy towards the people she is looking after.  It was wonderful to see Julianne and her child, Dinah and her wonderful bakes, Kitty still being unsure when it comes to love,  Pippa's young son, Gemma and Michael and trying to work out if they are in a relationship.   Plus of course Lady Amanda who is still a fabulous boss. 

If you are looking for proper closure, and a festive interlude for the A Wedding in Cornwall series then you definitely need to read this book.  

A Cornish Christmas Reunion will be free to download through Christmas, so even if you are new to the series, you can't go wrong at that price, give it a go, and fall in love with this little corner of Cornwall and its selection of amazing characters.
