Publisher's Summary

Liz has found refuge in the small fishing village of Tremarnock with her young daughter, Rosie, after her relationship with Rosie's father came unstuck.

Now that she's happily married to village restaurant owner Robert Hart, all seems set for a quiet autumn and merry Christmas. But strangers have bought the local guesthouse and seem to have big plans. Why is he so charming and confident, but she's so frightened? And what are they really doing with the guesthouse?

    "Nice story with rich character development"

    Took awhile to get into the story but about midway it started to pick up. Excellent performance by the narrator!

    "Lovely book"

    This is the second book in this series I have read. I love it love it. Has generally a real feel good factor about it which I personally love. (I know not all is feel good) but not going to spoil it for others. I like the way the villagers all rally together. Her descriptions of Cornwall are excellent and just makes me want to go on holiday. I want to move to this town with this community spirit if only ....
    The narrator did a fantastic job well done.
    I like the way this author has a way of covering very real and sensitive issues but without making the story incredibly sad or depressing or heart wrenching. She weaves a nasty steady path with dreadful incidents but with bundles of hope.
    I would thoroughly recommend this book.

    Story
    "6 1/2 out 10. Story lines appear not very well researched."

    Quaint little story but a bit mediocre in the penning. Poor grammar here & there. Implausible plots (I would suspect due to poor research); even with the little things like a 2 year old's speech developmental stage. It might have been a bit a bit more juicy if 1 of the characters , eg the main protagonist, had been written in the 1st person. The scam used in the plot was weak. Narrator OK.

    "Not What I Expected."

    I was not expecting the story that unfolded. But it was very well narrated and I began to enjoy the individual charectets and how they related to each other.

    "A lovely Cornish village story"

    I loved it and couldn't stop listening to it! Georgina Maguire is a brilliant narrator- so many different accents. So happy it all ended well . I hope that there will be yet another book about life in Tremarnock.

    "A pleasant book."

    An easy listen, predictable but nice. Shame about the pronunciation of some of the Cornish place names - Trebah and Rough Tor in particular!

    "Would recommend"

    This is the second book following on from Tremarnock. I think you would be able to read the Cornish guest house without reading Tremarnock first, but it does help you to get to know the characters by reading this first and make the story more enjoyable. The narrator is excellent, she manages all the accents very well. I am waiting for the third book now ! Could also be a successful TV series. If the BBC ever read these reviews.

    Story
    "Brilliant, totally absorbing"
    If you could sum up The Cornish Guest House in three words, what would they be?

    Comforting, absorbing, compulsive


    What does Georgia Maguire bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Georgia Maguire is absolutely wonderful in her reading of the book and the accents of different characters, she most certainly adds to the book, I love her voice and her interpretation.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book envelopes you and draws you into the characters and their families, making you laugh, cry and feel for them.


    Any additional comments?

    A brilliant book I am so sad it has come to an end, please Emma Burstall write some more.
