Over to you, Laura …
Reasons Readers Might Enjoy Maisie’s New Cornish Adventures
Thanks so much to Cathy for letting me share about my new Cornish romance books with all the readers at Between the Lines today. If you’ve read my series ‘A Little Hotel in Cornwall’ about amateur author Maisie’s adventures at the gorgeous hotel Penmarrow, you may be happy to know that her story has continued in a reboot series known as ‘A Cornish Hotel by the Shore’. But whether you’re new to the series or already a bit familiar with Maisie’s world, I thought it might be nice to share a few of the reasons readers seem to enjoy this latest set of stories—and maybe you’ll be inspired to give them a try too!
It’s a reboot…but it also stands on its own
So whether you’re familiar with my original series of novellas about Maisie or not, you can feel free to dive into her latest adventures without feeling out of the loop. As always, there are secretes, surprises, and heartfelt romance to be found in Maisie’s life at the quirky seaside hotel. But there’s a bit more heartache this time as well. Maisie will struggle against bigger obstacles when it comes to both her romance with Sidney and her dreams of making it big in the writing world—which takes us to another reason readers are turning the pages in Maisie’s new installments.
There’s a lot of drama going on
As in, there’s a traumatic accident…unexpected goodbyes…and even a case of amnesia (but with a twist!). There will be a bit more globetrotting as well, with Maisie’s dreams taking her from cozy Cornwall to bustling London, with occasional detours to Brighton and even a snowy Christmas in the Swiss Alps. Maisie will also find herself deeply entangled in the world of publishing and writing where things can get a bit intimidating for a mid-level author still trying to make a name for herself and her work. It’s a little glamorous too, of course, with the glitz of award banquets and fancy dress parties, but none of that competes with the place where Maisie’s heart truly belongs—another reason readers are enjoying a return to her world, of course!
The Penmarrow is both cozy and grand
As fans of the series know already, there’s never a dull moment at the Penmarrow. Past stories have found the historic hotel playing host to everything from a literary themed ball to a Christmas ice carving contest. This time, it’s events like a high stakes poker tournament stirring up drama among staff members and guests, along with the hotel’s unexpected connection to a family’s lost inheritance—not to mention the personal lives of the quirky staff take center stage as well, with romantic quandaries arising for both the enigmatic manager Mr. Trelawney and Brigette, the uptight( but secretly romantic at heart) head of housekeeping.
So if you enjoy love stories with a bit of angst, a lot of heart, and a good dash of quirky humor, I do hope you’ll check out my books in ‘A Cornish Hotel by the Shore’—and don’t forget the original series of novellas about Maisie starting with the 2019 novella A Little Hotel in Cornwall.
You’re very welcome, Laura and thank you.
On holiday in Egypt with Sidney and Dean, young writer Maisie is—in her mind—on top of the world. Her long-labored manuscript is finally going to be published, she and Sidney are deeply in love, and the future looks bright on every level.
In one moment, however, it all changes. Tragedy leads to overwhelming loss that Maisie can’t even begin to process. As the world itself turns upside down, there’s no solace for Maisie from the growing sense that her wonderful future is finished.
No dream about to come true. No certainties of new chances in life.
Even if the first two did not break her, the last one is determined to. It’s up to Maisie to find her strength and determination to find a new future, even if—unthinkably—it may be nothing like the one she dreamed of.
