The Cornish Secret of Summer’s Promise
by Laura Briggs
A Little Hotel in Cornwall #4
Release Date: January 15, 2020
Genre: Romance, Chick Lit
As spring slips away from the hotel Penmarrow, excitement builds for an exclusive auction hosted at the hotel, featuring priceless possessions from a Hollywood actress turned lady of the manor, including her famous diamonds. Celebrities and collectors form a crowd that is keeping Maisie and the rest of staff busy, even as Maisie faces a crossroads for her manuscript.
But when the diamonds are stolen and Sidney is accused by the authorities, Maisie’s dilemma as a writer is pushed aside out of fear that his future in Port Hewer is in jeopardy. Desperation to prove that someone else is behind the theft will lead Maisie to uncover a very different secret outside of jewel thieves and village rumors … one that could change her life and her future forever.
Can Maisie deal with the latest secrets exposed — including those that paint Sidney’s past in a questionable light? And as summer’s dawn alters her idyllic life in Cornwall, will Maisie’s feelings for Sidney change as well?

So cute! This was definitely a great palate cleanser from all the fantasy driven novels that I’ve been reading lately. Sometimes you just need a little romance in your life to make you smile about the good things, you know? Even if sometimes the drama within the romance novels can be a little ridiculous. But I think that’s my favorite part about them, because at least they aren’t end of the world kind of dramas that they are dealing with, even if it may seem like it to the characters.
Also books like this always make me wish that I could escape my world for a little bit, maybe take a mini vacation somewhere in Europe or even New Zealand in some small town where I don’t know anyone, and just relax for a bit. If I have to try to solve a crime or anything, then the cooler the vacation, you know? But at least I can get away from my current life and just live like someone else for a bit, you know? Books like this – that provide that mini escape without feeling like I need to save the world – are some of my all time favorites when I just want to decompress and chill on my couch.
