Release Day: A Cornish Christmas at Pear Tree Farm by Angela Britnell

I can’t believe it will be Christmas in just a few weeks because it doesn’t seem long since I was here to celebrate the release of my summer book! I’m very happy to be back again to celebrate publication day for the sequel, A Cornish Christmas at Pear Tree Farm!

The new book centres around Ashley and Crispin who meet very briefly in A Cornish Summer at Pear Tree Farm and felt an instant sense of connection, but the timing was wrong for them to explore where that might lead. It seemed cruel not to give them a second chance and so this sequel came to life. When we first meet them again they’re both in a better place emotionally but of course that doesn’t mean things will be smooth sailing for me because quite honestly where would be the fun in that! Most romance readers expect a happy ending and so it’s the journey the couple take together that is crucial to either capturing or losing their interest.

Here’s a brief excerpt with a window into Ashley’s thoughts when she and Crispin come together again in this new book.

Ashley had only met him for a few minutes over a year ago at Ward and Nessa’s engagement party. That was when he’d made the decision to turn himself in, and she recalled feeling a fleeting sense of kinship because she’d been experiencing her own rough time. His rugged good looks had stirred something in her then and were having the same effect now.

Meeting Ashley again rattles Crispin too and we feel his reaction when his old friend Polly is talking about the American woman.

‘She’s a real go-getter. Pear Day was her idea too.’ Polly’s smile broadened. ‘But don’t hate her for that.’

Crispin had the sinking feeling he wouldn’t be capable of hating Ashley for anything. It’d been a long time since he’d allowed himself to be interested in any woman but something about her wouldn’t leave him alone.

So the scene is set and even if you know it isn’t so much ‘will they’ or ‘won’t they’ I hope you’ll come along with them as they search for their own Christmas miracle.

🎄🎄🎄

About the book:

Pairing up at Pear Tree Farm in time for Christmas …

Pear Tree Farm in Cornwall, owned by the kind-hearted Nessa Vivian, is known for taking in lost souls, and ex-soldier Crispin Davies is certainly one of those. But the once sleepy caravan park is now a thriving business, and far from the peace and quiet Crispin was craving, he soon finds himself roped into helping out with a short-notice Christmas festival, organised by Nessa’s force-of-nature sister, Lowena.

But despite Crispin’s initial reluctance, his involvement in the festival serves to throw him together with Ashley Spencer, an American woman and fellow lost soul, who works at the nearby Tregereth House. Could Lowena’s ambitious scheme result in a more hopeful Christmas and New Year for them both – with a few surprises along the way?

Sequel to A Cornish Summer at Pear Tree Farm

Release Day: A Cornish Summer at Pear Tree Farm by Angela Britnell

Thank you so much for inviting me over to say hello on publication day for A Cornish Summer at Pear Tree Farm! When it became obvious earlier in the year that I wouldn’t be able to travel across the pond and enjoy a real Cornish summer yet again, I decided a fictional one would do the trick which is when this book came to life.

I soon discovered at the core of Nessa Vivian’s character was a generous heart towards people who needed a refuge from their everyday lives which struck me as fortuitous because in a way she ended up doing the same thing for me. She also has the very special quality of not having to know the reason why someone needs her help but simply accepting that they do. The way Nessa sees it, if they want to tell her they will. Polly and Jack Green have lived on the site for thirty years without ever explaining to Nessa, or her parents before her, why they left Birmingham in the first place, why they’ve never returned or had any family come to visit them at Pear Tree Farm. Nessa treats army veteran Crispin Davies the same way. Almost three years earlier, he turned up in the middle of winter asking for a place to pitch his tent in return for work around the site. The hardworking Welshman is a loner and Nessa respects his reticence and never presses him to talk about his past. But things change when Ward Spencer arrives. Their mutual attraction is obvious from day one, but he’s clearly a man with secrets and for once that isn’t good enough for her. She’ll have to decide whether to break her golden rule or risk losing something – and someone – very special.

I rarely write sequels but when I finished A Cornish Summer at Pear Tree Farm there were two special characters begging for their own chance at love and a sense of belonging so I gave them

what they asked for. You’ll have to read A Cornish Christmas at Pear Tree Farm, due out in December, to find out if they took it!

🌞🌞🌞

About the Book:

Cornish charm and a Tennessee twist – the perfect pair?

Nessa Vivian is determined to keep her parents’ business afloat, but Pear Tree Farm near the backwater Cornish village of Polgarth didn’t do well as farm, and it’s not faring much better as a camp site. Maybe it’s due to Nessa’s habit of taking in troubled runaways, like ex-soldier Crispin, for next to nothing. Or perhaps her highly-strung sister Lowena is right – caravans named after Beatles’ songs and homegrown pears are not enough to turn the farm into a tourist haven.

Then another troubled runaway turns up, posing the greatest threat yet. Ex-musician Ward Spencer from Tennessee is certainly intriguing, but could his plans to put nearby Tregereth House on the map mean Pear Tree Farm is finished – or does his arrival signal a second lease of life, and not just for Nessa’s business?

#GuestPost SPRING ON RENDEVOUZ LANE by ANGELA BRITNELL #PublicationDay @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

A huge delight today to be able to welcome ANGELA BRITNELL to my blog today to help celebrate publication day for SPRING ON RENDEVOUZ LANE!
Over to you Angela…….

 Spring on Rendezvous Lane by Angela Britnell

Thank you so much for inviting me over to say hello on publication day! I’m known for my trans-Atlantic romances and although Spring on Rendezvous Lane can loosely be called one, this time my main characters would struggle to say where they were ‘from’ in the traditional sense. Sandy and Taran both have something in common with President Obama – they’re all what’s known as ‘Third Culture Kids’, or TCK’s. Here is how Sandy describes a TCK:

‘The simple definition is having parents from two different cultures but being raised in another, or multiple others in most cases. President Obama is the most famous one. American mother. Kenyan father. Grew up primarily in Indonesia and Hawaii.’

Sandy usually calls herself a military brat and lived in various countries growing up with her American serviceman father and German mother. Taran’s mother is American and his father, who worked for oil companies around the world, is half Italian/half Polish.

‘Home’ becomes a four-letter-word in their relationship because she’s working hard to make a settled life for her young son, very different from her own childhood whereas Taran has gone in the completely opposite direction.

‘In his view there was too much world out there to be confined to one spot and the same applied to people.’

Whether they can or even want to find a middle ground is the big question.

Ignoring the present pandemic, and wouldn’t we all like to do that?, our world has become smaller in many ways and so the number of TCK’s is growing. Officially, my oldest son was one for a short time because I’m English and my husband is American and Stephen was born in Naples, Italy and we lived in Sicily until just after his first birthday. It was really

interesting writing this book to explore such a fascinating aspect of how the choices parents make can affect their children, often for a lifetime.

I’ll leave you now and hop you enjoy reading Sandy and Taran’s story as much as I enjoyed writing it!

About the book:

Can even the most seasoned traveller find a home on Rendezvous Lane?

‘Community spirit’ is not a phrase in travel junkie Taran Rossi’s vocabulary. As a former ‘third culture kid’ and now spicy street food connoisseur and social media influencer, he’s never really stayed in one place long enough to feel part of a community. And that’s just the way he likes it.

But a springtime stint house sitting for his grandmother on Rendezvous Lane in East Nashville could lead to a long overdue wake-up call. With the help of single mum Sandy Warner and her young son Chip, can Taran come to understand that sometimes it’s not about the place – it’s about the people?

#BookReview CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW by ANGELA BRITNELL

ABOUT THE BOOK


Mistletoe and moonshine: a Christmas match made in heaven?


Moonshine Hollow’s famous ‘Lightning Flash’ might be an acquired taste, although the same could be said for moonshine distillery owner Cole Landon, what with his workaholic habits and ‘Scrooge’ tendencies when it comes to all things Christmassy.


But when Jenna Pendean from Cornwall pays a visit to Cole’s family-run distillery in Tennessee during the holiday season, will Cole’s cynicism about the existence of Christmas miracles be put to the test?

MY REVIEW

I was in need of a pick me up read, and this was absolutely blooming perfect for that!! There’s just something about those Southern men that Angela writes about that I can’t help falling for!!

Over in Tennesse, we get to visit the family distillery that Cole runs. A real workaholic so with Christmas approaching his family are getting to his scrooge like tendencies again! They just want him to have a bit of fun but he feels the pressure keeping up the good work that previous generations worked so hard for!

Jenna is over in Tennesse on ‘holiday’ but she’s actually searching for answers after she discovered something in her family history that has left her with many questions but she soon finds herself under the spell of Cole when she has a tour of the distillery, and the feeling is mutual!

These two together are just so much fun – there seems to be a pretty strong connection from the start with them. They just get on so well and have some really good banter… alcohol does play a part!! What do you expect when a book is set at a distillery?!!

As Jenna starts to spend more time at the distillery helping out with the tours, she begins to see how things work behind the scenes which leaves her with a dilemma concerning her quest to solve her family puzzle!

It’s fun, flirty, festive and fabulous!!

#GuestPost CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW by ANGELA BRITNELL #PublicationDay @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

Always a delight to have a guest post for a Publication Day release, so very happy to hand over the reigns for Books and Me! today to ANGELA BRITNELL on release day for CHRISTMAS AT MOONSHINE HOLLOW!!  


Over to you Angela….

Thank you for inviting me to pop in and say hello to your readers on publication day. I know there are tons of new Christmas books out already or set to be released but I’m almost certain mine is the only one set in Tennessee moonshine distillery!

I’ve been intrigued by the history of illegal southern moonshiners ever since watching an American television show featuring heavily bearded men making moonshine in the woods that they sold covertly in Mason jars while trying to avoid the law. Cole Landon, my fictional moonshine distiller, is the modern legal version of his notorious great-grandfather “Lightening” Landon who certainly fitted the od-time mould. Cole is as proud of his product as his notorious relative ever was and will do anything to save his business when it comes under threat. Research is always an interesting aspect of writing but in this case it proved to be enjoyable too because I needed to visit a real live distillery. The Leiper’s Fork Distillery is only a few miles from my house and although they make whiskey as opposed to moonshine the process is very similar and the owner/distiller has a real passion for his craft that he was happy to share.

Today I’ll raise a glass to the countless generations of Tennessee moonshiners because without them I wouldn’t have a story!

MY REVIEW


Loved, Loved, Loved this book!! It’s full of family secrets that that have hung over Herring Bay for years, leaving deep wounds for many. So when Essy travels there to discover the past her mother is very reluctant to share, she reopens those wounds and it threatens new friendships.

Essy stands out anyway as she’s an American and they don’t get many of those visiting Herring Bay! She also is a big fan of bright colours and finds a fellow ‘colour’ fan in Ruan. He’s a local who has recently returned home and finds himself doing various handyman jobs which brings him into contact with Essy as she stays with her Aunt at her B&B that is in need of a bit of modernising!

The more time Essy and Ruan spend together, the more the pasts of their families begin to bubble to the surface and I loved finding out about the goings on of the past – and surprised along with the characters to discover that what they had been led to believe was quite different to the actual truth. Isn’t that always the way!?! We build up an image of a situation or person based on what we’re told, only to find that shattered when the truth comes to light!

I loved everything about this book! From the relatable characters wanting to make sense of who they are, to the wonderful setting and twists and turns of the revelations!

A BOOK TO REMEMBER!!

 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.

#BlogTour NEW YEAR, NEW GUY by ANGELA BRITNELL #BookReview @rararesources @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

Always a delight to be involved in a Blog Tour for Angela Britnell, so delighted to share my thoughts today for her latest NEW YEAR, NEW GUY. My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for putting the tour together and letting me be part of it all!

Out with the old life, in with the new …


When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister’s crazy plan.


But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?

MY REVIEW

Hunter – swoon!!! 😍 I could just let that be my review!! But I won’t! 

I’ve adored spending time in the company of Hunter and Laura – thrown together as she ‘babysits’ him ahead of her sisters’ wedding. He’s the surprise guest from America, and when she’s told about her assignment she’s not too pleased!  But she wants her sister to be happy so is a good host, and ‘hides’ him at her house until the big day.

They are very different personalities – she’s very reserved and guarded, he’s not backward in coming forward but is really sweet and funny, but you do get the sense he’s hiding something as he’s a little edgy at times and doesn’t seem comfortable in certain situations.

I loved seeing how they spent time -she introduces him to lots of British things and he seems to find the more time he spends with Laura, the more he begins to relax.

Both Laura and Hunter seem to be troubled by their pasts and I really loved seeing how having support helped them both confront those demons and find a little bit of peace.  

This is a story full of heart and humour, it’s emotional and endearing and I highly recommend it!

#PublicationDayPost NEW YEAR NEW GUY by ANGELA BRITNELL #guestpost @ChocLituk @AngelaBritnell

An absolute delight for me today to be able to post this Blog Post on behalf of the lovely Angela Britnell and Choc Lit on PUBLICATION DAY!!   So sit back and enjoy a few words from Angela, a little bit more about the book and, most importantly!, links to be able to get your mitts on a copy of the wonderful NEW YEAR, NEW GUY!

New Year New Guy: A Brief Break from Cornwall!

This story is a break from my usual Cornwall/Nashville romances because the setting ventures over the border into Devon and the city of Plymouth, with a few side trips I don’t want to give away here! It was interesting to change things up and I hope my readers will forgive me and hopefully enjoy visiting some different places along the way. To those who don’t know there has always been a touch of rivalry between Cornwall and Devon, in fact older Cornish people will talk about crossing the Tamar River border as though they are travelling to another country. And don’t even get them all started on the proper way to eat a cream tea. Whether to put jam or cream on the scones first is the source of endless debates. I purposely avoided going anywhere near that particular minefield in the book but anyone who knows that I’m Cornish born and bred will guess where I fall on that particular question…

‘Out with the old life, in with the new,’ sums the book up perfectly. When we first meet Laura she’s standing in the rain at the Plymouth bus station waiting to collect Hunter who her sister Polly has invited as a surprise for her fiancé Johnny at their pre-wedding party. Although Laura is cynical about the idea of lifelong love after escaping from her own brief, bad marriage to an arrogant surgeon she agreed to take care of this unknown American for a few days to please her sister. The minute Hunter sets foot on English soil again for the first time in twenty years he knows he’s made a mistake and would bet his last dollar that his old friend won’t be pleased to have the past dragged up. For a multitude of reasons, many of them tied to the time he and Johnny spent at school together, he’s also determined to stay single and no prickly English nurse will change his mind. Or will she? Could Laura come around to the idea that love doesn’t have to mean losing her sense of self?

It was a challenge to touch on a few darker themes in this story without losing the sense of fun and romance I always strive to bring to my books but I hope I’ve managed it, only reviews and sales will confirm that. Sending Laura and Hunter’s story out into the world today means that it’s time to get busy on my summer release!

About the book:

Out with the old life, in with the new …

When Laura’s bride-to-be sister, Polly, organises a surprise reunion for her fiancé and his long lost American friend, Laura grudgingly agrees to help keep the secret. And when the plain-spoken, larger-than-life Hunter McQueen steps off the bus in her rainy Devon town and only just squeezes into her tiny car, it confirms that Laura has made a big mistake in going along with her sister’s crazy plan.

But could the tall, handsome man with the Nashville drawl be just what reserved Laura Williams needs to shake up her life and start something new?
