#Review - There's Something About Cornwall by Daisy James @daisyjamesbooks @HQDigitalUK

About the book

A knight in a shining camper van!

Life is far from picture perfect for food photographer, Emilie Roberts. Not only has her slimy ex cheated on her, he’s also stolen her dream assignment to beautiful Venice! Instead, Emilie is heading to the wind-swept Cornish coast…

Emilie doesn’t think it can get any worse – until disaster strikes on the very first day! And there’s only one man to rescue this damsel in distress: extremely hunky surfing instructor, Matt Ashby.

Racing from shoot to shoot in a bright orange vintage camper van, Matt isn’t the conventional knight in shining armour – but can he make all of Emilie’s fairy tale dreams come true?

My Review 

It was awful how much Emilie's confidence had taken a hit and I was willing her at the beginning to become more assertive. The chemistry that Emilie and Matt share is great and kept me interested in the story as they travel around Cornwall. It was nice to see their friendship build and there was also the added little bit of mystery surrounding Matt's past. 

Now Lucinda is an interesting character and to begin with I think that it would be hard for anyone to like her. You never knew how she would react in certain situations and if Emilie's work would meet her very high standards. I loved the fact that as you get to know her you understand her character more and more.

It was lovely to hear all the gorgeous descriptions of Cornwall, I have never been before but it is one of the places I would love to visit. This book brings everything to life especially with all the talk of yummy food. I have always loved camper vans so the addition of the "Satsuma Splittie" makes everything even more perfect!

I really enjoyed the fact that Emilie was a photographer and it was interesting to see how she went about her work. The interactions with Marcus on the photography shoots were always fun to read as he had a naturally exuberant personality.

I have to mention the appearance of a wonderful author whose books I love to read. It was a lovely addition to the book!

Light hearted and fun at times the story moves along at a lovely pace it really helped get me into a summery mood!

With a beautiful friendship, a sprinkling of romance and the addition of a camper van what more could I want!
