Jake Woodhouse has stayed on at Driftwood Cottage for longer than he planned, but he just can’t seem to find the will to move on. It’s partly to do with the fact that he loves the location, but also because he doesn’t like the idea of leaving his friend Ruby Penrose behind.
Ruby is enjoying being back in Cornwall, working at the Little Cornish Gift Shop, eating all the delicious food her nanna makes and spending time with Jake. Her creative flair has also returned and she’s been working on a few different projects.
A shock phone call from his mother forces Jake to consider his options. He still has issues from his past hanging over him and he knows he can’t really move on until he deals with them.
When Jake leaves, Ruby knows it’s for the best, but she can’t help wondering what might have happened if he’d stayed.
This is the second short story in The Little Cornish Gift Shop series.
I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.
Oh this was such a treat to return to Cornwall and our friends at The Little Cornish Gift Shop. I read book one in the mini series; Christmas at The Little Cornish Gift Shop, at the end of December and I have missed the characters I had discovered in the start to this delightful mini series by Rachel Griffiths. You can find my review for book one here.
Ruby is still happily living with her nanna in the gift shop and it’s feeling very much like home for her and she’s started to write, which she’s been struggling with for a while. Her friendship with Jake is growing and she can’t imagine life in Cornwall without him and his bulldog, Sherlock Bones.
Jake himself too is starting to feel like Cornwall is his new home but his past is about to rock his world again causing much distress for him, his dog and his friends Ruby and Hetty.
Will Jake be tempted by the bright lights of the city? Will his ex continue to hold the strings to his life? What does this mean for his blossoming friendship with Ruby?
I’ve really enjoyed this mini series by Rachel Griffiths; it’s light hearted, fun and gorgeously romantic. The Little Cornish Gift Shop mini series is the perfect relaxing read any time of day evoking many feel-good vibes and giving your heart and soul a chance to breathe and take in the charms of the beautiful coastline in the UK.
