A Garden in Cornwall Cover

 

~My Review~

 

A sweet story about a couple, Matt and Julianne who are expecting their first child.  They have a lovely cottage in Cornwall that they call home, but are saddened when they find out the landlady has decided to sell and it is not in their budget.

Matt lands his dream job when he gets hired as a landscaper at Penwill Hall and wants to bring beauty back to the untidy gardens.  The Estate is being renovated and Julianne is invited to view the house and give her ideas on modernizing the floor plan and decor.

The newly hired head housekeeper, Mrs. Norbit had me laughing at how seriously she took her position and how she had everyone on their toes. Julianne helps Matt with his gardening project and he has a little surprise for her at the end.

The story delivered a lovely trip to Cornwall with this adorable couple and gave me some laughs and heart warming moments along the way.  A warm and fuzzy escape!

~Book Description~

A Garden in Cornwall (A Wedding in Cornwall Book 12)

With their lives exactly what they’ve always dreamed, Matt and Julianne await the arrival of the third member of their family — but their happiness is threatened when their landlady Mathilda announces her intention to sell their beloved Rosemoor Cottage for an impossible value. Devastated, Julianne struggles to accept the cold reality of her and Matt making their home elsewhere.

 

Matt’s life has taken a new turn as he finally puts aside his academic work to pursue his gardening hobby as a career:  his first new job as a landscape designer involves neglected Penwill Hall’s ‘lost’ garden — one with a truly romantic Cornish past. But the task of restoring its legendary beauty from nearly seventy years ago proves difficult among the ruins lost in weeds and wilderness.

 

With notions of secret gardens and wartime stories echoing in her thoughts, Julianne is determined to help Matt and the estate’s new owner after the discovery of a hidden mural in the hall itself, depicting a breathtaking garden that may well be the lost one. Her efforts to uncover the past lead her to a curmudgeonly local gardener who just may hold the knowledge that would restore the ‘lost garden’ to its former glory. Will Julianne’s quest help her find a way to deal with losing the home she loves?

 

Hellos and farewells abound as Dinah returns to lend a helping hand at Cliffs House and Julianne relives her favourite memories of her and Matt’s beloved cottage in Book Twelve — the final instalment in the bestselling series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL.
