A Cornish Secret by Emma Burstall

Be careful what you kiss for…

Esme Posorsky is an enigma. For as long as people can remember, she has been part of community life in the quaint Cornish fishing village of Tremarnock, but does anyone really know her? She is usually to be found working in her pottery studio or at home with her beloved cat, Rasputin. But when an old school friend turns up with a secret from the past, nothing will ever be the same again.

Meanwhile teenager, Rosie, is excited to find a bottle washed up on Tremarnock beach with a message from a former German prisoner of war. While the rest of the village is up in arms about a new housing development, she sets out to find him. Little does she know, however, that her discovery will unleash a shocking chain of events that threatens to blow her family apart. Tremarnock may look like a cosy backwater, but some of its residents are about to come face-to-face with tough decisions and cold reality…


This is part four in the enchanting Tremarnock series.

I absolutely love these books. Emma Burstall is a fabulous writer, she conjures up the setting, the people, and the fascinating stories of their lives so well.

These books can be read as standalone books, but it’s so lovely to read the whole series. It was great to be back with the familiar characters again.

Rosie is now a teenager, and it’s wonderful to see her grow and blossom. The story of Esme and Caroline is so touching.

Like every village and town, there are joys and troubles, and it’s heart-warming to see how the village pulls together at these times.

I really hope there will be more in this series, it was one of those books that I was sorry to finish.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
