Embrace the magic of Cornwall! 😎☀️
09 February 2023 by Tina-Marie Miller
Set against a backdrop of the rugged North Cornwall landscape, the unexpected is never far away in my latest release, Love and a Kiss, Chris 💋.
Picture perfect fishing villages inhabit this spectacular area of outstanding natural beauty, offering stunning panoramic sea views across the bay. The perfect retreat for surfing, swimming or meandering along the beach. And with an added touch of mystery of course!
Will this be the summer that changes everything?
Meet Finola Connor. One of Ireland’s favourite crime writers. Her best-selling, award-winning Scandinavian Noir detective series featuring Swedish bad boy Erik Johansen is never far from her thoughts.
An unexpected drama of her own!
When she discovers her errant partner Frank in flagrante delicto with her housekeeper’s daughter, Finola’s world comes crashing down. It doesn’t help that they were just hours away from catching a flight to spend the summer with best friends, Bella and Hugo. Finola decides to travel to Cornwall alone, desperate to leave her troubles behind. As she settles into Gull Cottage, neighbour and property manager Mo is quick to offer a warm welcome.
Love is in the air – or not!
This tall, dark ruggedly handsome stranger appears at Finola’s cottage on her first day leaving her wondering if Heathcliff stopped by on his way to find Cathy!
As their friendship develops, Mo realises it’s been a long time since he’s met someone that hijacks his thoughts at every opportunity.
A welcome distraction
When Bella reveals she’s out of her depth organising a village fundraiser, Finola doesn’t hesitate to get involved, even offering up a ‘Star Prize’ - much to the delight of the locals – the chance to feature in her next novel! But mischievous Bella is keen to play matchmaker and switches the winning ticket at the last moment. Finola finds herself unexpectedly face-to-face with the utterly charming and breathtakingly handsome, Chris MGM, the local Lord of the Manor!
Under the golden Cornish sun, will hidden secrets change life forever?
Trouble is lurking on the horizon when Finola catches Hugo in another secret liaison with Bella’s arch nemesis and local journalist, Rebecca MacArthur. She worries her friends may be facing their own relationship woes.
Her patience is further pushed to the limits when Rebecca gate-crashes her lunch date with Chris. Fearing there’s more to this woman than meets the eye, she offloads her concerns to Mo, who surprises her by revealing his own suspicions! Are they about to unearth a mystery? As with all villages, there are tensions, ambitions – and secrets - lurking around the corner that will test relationships old and new like never before.
A shocking discovery!
Together with their friends, Finola and Mo team up and unwittingly uncover a mystery Finola’s fictional crime hero Erik would be proud of!
Will these revelations finally leave a pathway clear for her to pursue a romance with Chris, or is there still unfinished business from her past?
