A Summer to Remember in Herring Bay by Angela Britnell
It’s a pleasure to be here with you on release day for A Summer to Remember in Herring Bay and I thought your readers might be interested in hearing about some of my inspirations behind the book. I grew up in Cornwall and it often features in my stories – the beautiful landscape is frequently a character in itself and its geographical remoteness makes it perfect for people trying to make changes in their lives. In this particular book the village of Herring Bay has echoes of Mevagissey, the Cornish fishing port where my mother was born, although it isn’t as large or picturesque. An abandoned Methodist chapel has a prominent part to play in my new book and it’s inspired by one in the village where I lived. Another spark came from Michael Portillo, or rather his unique sense of style – I definitely borrowed hints of that for Ruan’s character. I hope you’ll enjoy getting to know the community of Herring Bay and fall more than a little in love with Essy and Ruan.
About the Book:
Essy Havers is good at finding things. Her company specialises in helping clients track down anything, from missing china pieces to rare vintage clothing. But now Essy has something more important to find: herself.
Essy has always been curious about her mother’s secret past and her Cornish roots. So, when the opportunity arises, she hops on a plane in Tennessee and ends up in Herring Bay in Cornwall; the village where her mother grew up.
But once there, she’s mystified by the reactions of the villagers when they realise who she is. Was Essy’s decision to visit Cornwall a mistake, or will it lead to a summer she’ll never forget?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Angela grew up in Cornwall, England and returns frequently from her new home in Nashville, Tennessee to visit family and friends, drink tea and eat far too many Cornish pasties!

Thanks to over three decades of marriage to her wonderful American husband she’s a huge fan of transatlantic romance and always makes sure her characters get their own happy-ever-after.
She is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, the Romance Writers of America and the Music City Romance Writers. Her first novel ‘Truth and Consequence’ was published in 2006 and she’s now had over 30 novels published internationally and several short stories in women’s magazines.
