Blog Tour: Finding Family at the Cornish Cove by Kim Nash

Last year I read my first book by Kim Nash which was set in a small town on the Cornish coast called Driftwood Bay, and really enjoyed it. I therefore jumped at the opportunity to read the follow up book, again set in the town.

We first met Gemma in Hopeful Hearts at the Cornish Cove, where she was one of the more welcoming members of the town to Meredith, whose story we read in the first book. Gemma has been running the local cafe since her beloved mother passed away but now it is time to make some changes. With the help of Clem who we met in the first book, she is expanding the space which means doing renovations. When she meets another newcomer to town, Jude, who is the local fire safety officer, it is safe to say that they don't hit it off straight away. Gemma makes some assumptions about Jude which makes her distrust him.

In addition to needing renovation work, Gemma is going to need some new staff. One of those new staff members is a young girl named Occy. Gemma is able to connect with Occy in a way that her single father can't but she is sure to respect the boundaries that have been put in place.

Like all of us, the characters in this book all bring their own issues to the situation. For Gemma this includes an ex husband.  She also isn't sure what it going on with her sister, who she is normally close to. Jude has his own history, which erupt in a wholly unexpected way. I wasn't sure at first about some of these aspects of the story, but  it all worked out well in the end

I once again enjoyed my time in Driftwood Bay. It has just been announced that there are at least two more book coming in this series, and you know that I will be jumping on board for those too!

Thanks to the publisher, Netgalley and Rachel's Random Resources for the opportunity to read this book.

About the book

Finding Family at the Cornish Cove

Family is everything…

In the years since her death, Gemma has been running her late mother’s cafĂ© with devotion, and when an opportunity comes to buy out her next-door neighbour and expand, she jumps at the chance.

She knows she will do her mother proud – keep her legacy going strong – but deep down she knows there’s still something missing. With her mum in her mind more than ever, and the knowledge that she may never start a family of her own, she can’t stop thinking about what life has in store for her.

But sometimes family are those you choose, or those who choose you! And with a growing community of supporters cheering Gemma on – including some new faces at her blossoming bistro – and maybe one in particular, will she really spend the rest of her life alone?
