A Winter Warmer at the Little Cornish Kitchen Cover

St Aidan: a cosy Cornish village where friendships are made for life and it’s always cocktail hour somewhere…
A clean slate in the world’s cosiest cottage by the sea…
When Gwen Starkey and her best friend, Stella Simpson, arrive in St Aidan to take on a cottage renovation, it’s the fresh start they both so desperately need. But when their new adventure begins with them unintentionally breaking into their neighbour, Ollie Lancaster’s cottage – thinking it’s their new home – and Gwen accidentally flashing the gorgeous Ollie before they flee, the life-long friends realise that life in Cornwall is going to be anything but quiet!
They also quickly discover that they’re in over their heads and it’s going to take a village to turn their cottage’s narrow walls into the luxurious hideaway of their dreams. St Aidan is full of colourful characters just waiting to welcome them, if only Gwen and Stella can find the courage to start leaving the past behind them…

Author Bio –
I write fun, flirty fiction, with feisty heroines, and lots of heart. Writing is fab, because I get to wear pretty shoes instead of wellies. I live in a cottage up the steepest hill in Derbyshire, where my family and pets are kind enough to ignore the chaos. Happily, we’re in walking distance of a supermarket. I love hearts, flowers, happy endings, all things vintage, most things French. When I’m not on Facebook, and can’t find an excuse for shopping, I’ll be out with my two Old English sheepdogs or in the garden. On days when I want to be really scared, I ride a tandem.

I really wanted to read this book when I saw the cover. The colors and hot cocoa look warm and inviting, just the way I love spending my Christmas and winter season. This book tells the story of two good friends, Ella and Gwen. These two women want to get away, and so they go to St. Aidan in Cornwall. They are going to be staying in a quaint cottage at no charge….all they need to do is to renovate it.

It is in dire need of help and they have very different ideas on how to fix it. Ella wants to go for the easy fix of minimalistic all white finishes. Ella wants warmth and color that fits in the beautiful cottage in the bay. The owner of the cottage lives next door and down the hill. His name is Ollie, and they find that he will be very involved in the renovation.

There is a lot of humor as the women do some very funny things. Ella and Gwen make some wonderful friends and Gwen helps in a little cafe. She soon becomes known as a good cook and her meals are described at great length. Don’t read this book while you’re hungry, because all the varieties of fudge will make your tummy growl!d

As you might guess, Ella and Ollie’s friend like each other while Gwen and Ollie like each other. There is no quick romance, because the women have gone through a lot of heartache and Gwen and Ollie are both still grieving those they have recently lost. When time grows near for them to finish the cottage, what will become of all the new friendships? What will be their next steps in life?

I would give this book a PG-14 rating for mild sexual descriptions and a few mild curse words.
