One Summer in Little Penhaven
Could one summer change your life? When high-flying American lawyer Samantha Muir finds out she’s lost her partnership whilst on an assignment in London, she has a dramatic reaction. Rather than returning home, she resigns, leaves her business suits behind and jumps on the first train to Cornwall at the encouragement of a friendly stranger. The village of Little Penhaven, where Samantha eventually ends up, is a world away from her life in Knoxville, Tennessee – and local farmer Cadan Day is certainly a world away from any man she has met before. But could the Cornish village and Cadan play a part in Samantha’s summer of self-discovery?

There’s just something about the way that Angela writes that has a real warmth about it, and I adored this story of Samantha who sees her way of life change overnight all down to a chance meeting with someone at a train station, and it was wonderful to follow her journey and bounce back after being dealt a huge blow to her career as a high flying lawyer.
She hears that she’s lost out on the promotion she’d been dreaming of while in London and feels so despondent, but a conversation with a stranger at a station leads her to board a train to Cornwall and escape the ‘real world’ for a while, until she decides what to do with her life next.
The little village of Little Penhaven is a world apart from what she is used to and she becomes a bit of a novelty amongst the villagers and soon finds herself renting a cottage and helping out the local jumble sale!
She’s warned off Cadan who she meets there – he’s a local farmer with a bit of a bad reputation, if ou listen to the local gossips, but there’s something about him she finds intriguing – and he feels the same about her.
I loved seeing how well she fitted in to the new way of life and getting to hear all the local gossip. She finds the slower pace of life is just what she needs and it helps her to reassess her life and where she thinks she is heading. She’s not afraid to get her hands dirty too and impresses a few people with her DIY skills – not what you expect from a city girl used to the corporate life!
With a small village there’s always rumours and hearsay and it’s knowing who to believe, especially when your dealing with someone appear contrary to what you’ve heard! Cadon is also dealing with family issues and it’s fun to see how his brother is such a different personality to him and how Cadan feels so protective over him.
Another fabulously rewarding read from this author!!
