๐Ÿ“– Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen by Jane Linfoot

Little Cornish Kitchen #2

My thanks to the publisher for my copy of this book
and to Rachel's Random Resources for the invitation to the blog tour


St Aidan: a cosy Cornish village where friendships are made for life and it’s always cocktail hour somewhere…

The Little Cornish Kitchen is going on tour!

When internet sensation ‘Cressida Cupcake’ has a soggy bottomed TV fiasco and faces bake-off backlash she jumps at the chance to spend some time hiding out in St Aidan, dog sitting for her brother.

Picturesque Seaspray Cottage is meant to be Cressy Hobson’s port in the storm but with her blog sponsors having fled and her book deal gone sideways her funds are running low and she’s forced to turn to the locals for help. Soon her quiet weeks in Cornwall are filled with chasing sheep, saving the local retirement village, taking The Little Cornish Kitchen into people’s homes for baking nights…and keeping vigilant guard against romance.

The one and only time Cressy lost her head to love was over a decade ago while in St Aidan, and she won’t be making the same mistake again – a feat easier said than done when Ross Bradbury looks even better a decade on…and every step she takes seems to put him in her path!






๐Ÿ“– My Review... 

Each book in this entertaining series reads easily as a standalone story and Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen continues with the delicious Cornish theme in a story which grabs your attention from the start.

When celebrity baker 'Cressida Cupcake' faces a TV disaster she flees to St Aidan, the picturesque village in Cornwall where she grew up, place of safety and where she now hides herself away ostensibly to look after her brother's dog but it's also a time to nurse her wounded pride. As her sponsor pulls out, and with funds low, Cressy needs find something to do, but everything she does seems to bring her back in contact with Ross Bradbury and it is their shared history which adds a touch of will they, won't they romance to this lovely light-hearted story. The supporting characters who flit into and out of the story are an absolute delight, especially the residents of the care home who have such fun baking along with Cressy, and the delightful Diesel and Pancake who made me smile.

The Cornish setting, the fun loving characters, and Cressida's delicious baking, all combine to make Tea for Two at the Little Cornish Kitchen such a pleasure to read.

Best Read with...Cressy's Custard Cream Blondies and a glass of sparkling Prosecco


About the Author





Jane Linfoot is a best selling author, who lives in a cottage, up the steepest hill in Derbyshire, with her family, their pets, and an astonishing number of spiders. Although she loves seeing cow noses over the garden wall, she’s happy she can walk to a supermarket. Jane grew up in North Yorkshire where she spent a lot of her childhood avoiding horizontal gales blowing off the sea, and wrote her first book by accident, while working as an architect, and renovating country houses. While she loves to write feel good books that let readers escape, she’s always surprised to hear her stories make people laugh, admits to (occasionally) crying as she writes, and credits her characters for creating their own story lines. Jane’s garden would be less brambly if she wasn’t on Facebook and Twitter so often. On days when she wants to be really scared, she rides a tandem. She has lots of Pinterest boards relating to her novels.
