Christmas at the Cornish Cafe – Phillipa Ashley

When we left Cal and Demi the Cafe was about to open and it seemed that whatever ghosts were rattling around in both Cal and Demi’s past they were being laid to rest.

However as Christmas approaches, Cal and Demi are trying to enjoy each other without anyone else knowing what is going on.

Demelza’s Cafe at Kilhallon Resort is open even in the winter for a few days, and Demi is frantically baking to cash in on the run up to Christmas. A few of the cottages are open to more harden visitors who want to embrace and brave the Cornish weather and one of them seems to be getting under the skin of both Demi and Cal.

Kit Bannen is there writing a book, but he seems to have a nose for everything and keeps turning up when you least expect it. What does he know?

There is certainly an atmosphere building at Kilhallon and the weather is about to take a turn for the worst. Christmas is not always about celebrating,it can sometimes be about pulling together and facing whatever storm is coming with indeterminable spirit.

In this second book I was transported back to Penwith and all the characters I loved and hated in equal measure that make the place tick. We get to share laughs, tragedy and love with them and it makes for an excellent follow-up to Summer at The Cornish Cafe and I am really looking forward to the next book in the trilogy.

Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for the opportunity to read this book.

Christmas at The Cornish Cafe is out now in e-book.
