My personal Rating-
While the ending of this third book was a little rushed, it was a cute story to get in a Christmas-y mood. Normal teen dating drama with some typical unwise choices thrown in, it was a decent read. I’m curious how the final book will wrap-up this series.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

"The Governess of Penwythe Hall" by Sarah E. Ladd

About this book:

  “Cornwall was in her blood, and Delia feared she’d never escape its hold.
  Cornwall, England, 1811
  Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she tries desperately to forget.
  Jac Trethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced at Penwythe Hall, he battles both grief of this brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.
  Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall Novels series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.”

My personal Rating-
This book has been on my list to read for a while now, so I’m happy that I can cross it off the long TBR list. Overall it was a good book, a little too kissy and romance-y at times, but overall it was an entertaining read. Not my favorite by this author, but still a good one to just enjoy reading. I don’t have much to say other than that and the fact that the cover is beautiful. I will mostly likely pick up the next book in the series when it releases.

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
