There’s nothing a good cup of tea can’t fix.

Fran Gandolfini can’t help taking in strays; with four dogs, five cats and two bearded dragons, she refuses to give up on a creature in need. The only thing Fran has given up on, in fact, is her love life.

Moving from the city to Penhallow Sands to work in the Tea Shop, Ethan Clarke hopes he’s made the right choice for his daughter, Tilly.

Ethan’s past means he struggles to trust people. Just as Fran starts to change that, a life-changing secret that she’s keeping for a friend causes a rift between them. Fran can’t tell Ethan the truth, but she hates lying to him more.

It’ll take a Christmas miracle to set things right…


A festive romance set in Cornwall and perfect for fans of Holly Martin and Phillipa Ashley.

Delicious, Magical, Sparkling Rom-Com!      Stars 5


I’m one very happy bunny when I have a new book by Darcie Boleyn coming up in my reading list; I just know it’s going to ooze warmth, love and be quite magical!

Fern is never alone, but life can be lonely. She has her business, friends, plenty of pets but no ‘someone special’ in her life and whilst that has never really bothered her overly much, the arrival of Ethan Clarke in Penhallow Sands somehow piques her interest. With his gorgeous daughter, Tilly, Ethan has caused quite a stirring amongst the female hearts with his good looks but just as the pair begin to hit it off, Fern tells a lie to help out her best friend, Holly, which leads Ethan to believe that she is – after all – unavailable, despite the frisson which sparks between them.

What a super third novel in the Cornish Hearts series this is! Introducing new characters, this expands on the feel-good nature of the previous two books and with a gorgeous Christmas setting, love just sparkles all the way through. This author always adds some mouthwatering meals and snacks into her writing and I so desperately wanted to taste all the flavours – they sounded sooooo good! With some wonderful, magical moments this is a delicious read, with everything you could possibly want in a festive rom-com and perfectly timed to set you up for your own sparkling Christmastime, and absolutely earning a full five shining stars!

My thanks to publisher Canelo for my copy via NetGalley; this is my honest, original and unbiased review.

Author Bio


71bTQ7Djk0L._US230_Darcie Boleyn has a huge heart and is a real softy. She never fails to cry at books and movies, whether the ending is happy or not. Darcie is in possession of an overactive imagination that often keeps her awake at night. Her childhood dream was to become a Jedi but she hasn’t yet found suitable transport to take her to a galaxy far, far away. She also has reservations about how she’d look in a gold bikini, as she rather enjoys red wine, cheese and loves anything with ginger or cherries in it – especially chocolate. Darcie fell in love in New York, got married in the snow, rescues uncoordinated greyhounds and can usually be found reading or typing away on her laptop.
