The Cottage in a Cornish Cove
A heart-warming tale of discovering all you never wanted is exactly what you needed.
Orphaned as a baby and raised by indifferent relatives, much of Anna Redding’s happiness as a child came from the long summer holidays spent with an elderly family friend, Aunt Meg, in the quaint village of Polkerran.
With Aunt Meg’s passing, Anna is drawn back to the West Country, relocating to the Cornish cove where she was once so happy. Filled with memories, she hopes to perhaps open a B&B—and perhaps cross paths with Alex Tremayne again, a local boy she used to have a major crush on and who only had to walk past Anna to make her heart flutter.
Settling into her new life, and enjoying her work for the older, reclusive and—to be honest—often exasperating Oliver Seymour, Anna is delighted when Alex reappears in Polkerran and sweeps her off her feet.
The stars are finally aligned, but just as Anna thinks all she’s ever wished for is within reach, a shock discovery brings everything under threat, and she finds herself living a dream that isn’t hers.
Can Anna rescue the new life she has made for herself and, when the testing moment comes, who will be there to hold her hand?
The Cottage in a Cornish Cove is the first in an uplifting series of romances from Cass Grafton. Get to know the locals, wallow in the quaintness of Polkerran, and fall in love with romance all over again.

What better to read on a cold February weekend than a heart warming tale of hope and inspiration!
Anna seems to be enjoying a full life. She has a job she doesn't hate, a home with friends who all seem to have active social lives and are not crowding each other, Anna even has a boyfriend who hasn't been too much trouble, even if he seems like sort of a mooch.
So when she hears that a beloved aunt has passed away, her biggest regret is that she hadn't visited her often enough in recenet years. Life had just gotten busy and her aunt had dementai, and didn't seem to remember or respond as if she knew any more. It came as an utter shock when Anna finds she has inherited the cottage she enjoyed visiting all those summers ago and to find it is valued so highly.
This could be the change needed to spark new life into Anna's present.
She also recalls a summer "crush" from her younger years, a man who never noticed her.
When Anna returns to The Cove, she rediscovers some friendships from her youth and is delighted to find the man she fantasized over now has an interest in her. She also mets a mysterious man on a hill and finds herself working for him. Up close, she discovers he is not at all as he is reputed to be.
So much is going on, you will be glued to the pages. The settings, the emotions, both romantic and about self discovery, will keep you turning pages and saying "one more chapter" again and again.
An avid bookworm since childhood, Cass Grafton writes the sort of stories she loves to read – heart-warming, character driven and strong on location. Having moved around extensively and lived in three countries, she finds places inspiring and the setting of her novels often becomes as much a part of the story as her characters.
She leans heavily towards the upbeat and insists on a happy ever after. As one of her favourite authors, Jane Austen, once wrote, ‘let other pens dwell on guilt and misery’.
Cass loves travelling, words, cats and wine but never in the same glass. She has two grown up children and currently splits her time between Switzerland, where she lives with her husband and imaginary cats, and England, where she lives with her characters.
