The Cornish Key to Happiness written and self-published by Laura Briggs is available NOW in ebook format.

Book Blurb

Past secrets return to complicate Maisie’s future with the charming Sidney Daniels in the final installment of the Cornish romance series.

Picking up where book seven left off, Maisie’s plans to celebrate her book’s thrilling news remain on hold after Sidney has vanished from Port Hewer overnight, following a brush with his secret past. His departure leaves Maisie with a head full of questions and a heart torn in two, made even worse by the rumors flying about him through the town. Where and why has he gone? Will he ever come back again? And—foremost in Maisie’s mind—was the heartache from his younger days somehow to blame for his sudden and mysterious flight?

But when Dean convinces her that Sidney may be facing a choice that could ruin his life, Maisie must set out to find him, once again leaving behind the Cornish seaside haven of Port Hewer she’s come to think of as home, and leaving behind the answer to a secret she’s been longing to know since the beginning. Not knowing when or if she’ll return, she’s taking the biggest risk with her heart so far…and the truth she discovers waiting for her at the end of her journey will make her wonder if things can ever possibly be the same as they were before.

Questions are answered, secrets are spilled, and the biggest reveal of the series is finally unveiled as A LITTLE HOTEL IN CORNWALL reaches its exciting conclusion.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push for The Cornish Key to Happiness, the final instalment in the A Little Hotel in Cornwall series written by Laura Briggs.

The Cornish Key to Happiness is Book 8 in the A Little Hotel in Cornwall series, a series I’ve enjoyed learning about Maisie’s plight to find her favourite author and fulfil her dream to become an author. There’s been plenty of twists and turns along the way for Maisie but with all good series there has to be a finale.

I felt that this instalment held a bit of a foreboding atmosphere and I couldn’t guess which way the author would take lovely Maisie next. After the last instalment when we saw Sidney flee after a startling surprise from his past, understandably Maisie is very upset. She doesn’t know what to think, she doesn’t know where or why or for how long he has gone. Their blossoming relationship was doing so well and now the past that Sidney kept so well hidden has made itself known to him, is this the end for Maisie and Sidney?

Dean, Sidney’s best friend, persuades Maisie to find Sidney as he believes she is the only one that can talk to him. Maisie’s journey to find Sidney takes her to places she never dreamed of and she feels like her voyage has been wasted when she is met with obstacle after obstacle.

Laura Briggs takes the reader on an emotional trip with Maisie seeking out the truth of what the last 12 months in Cornwall have been about. Will Maisie find Sidney? Will we find out who the elusive author is?

A Little Hotel in Cornwall has been a charming read; full of hopes, dreams, adventure and romance.

A Stargazy Night Sky by Laura Briggs @PaperDollWrites @rararesources #blogblitz #bookreview #ALittleHotelinCornwall

A Stargazy Night Sky written and self-published by Laura Briggs is available NOW in ebook format.

Book Blurb

Starry autumn nights are bringing a rare celestial event and exciting new guests to the shores of the sleepy hotel Penmarrow.

Maisie is happy to be back among its staff, even with the question of its future ownership still in the air and the fate of her unpublished manuscript soon to be in the hands of London acquisitions editors. More than anything else, she’s happy to finally be in a relationship with Sidney Daniels, the sparks between them no longer denied. She’s excited for the future and things couldn’t be better with regards to romance … except for those lingering little questions about Sidney’s uncertain past, that is.

Meanwhile, the staff at the Penmarrow is tasked with hosting a special celestial conference where stargazers are gathering for a glimpse of the much-anticipated comet. The ever-timid maid Molly is flustered by the return of charming astronomer George and seems to need a little advice on how to rekindle the spark they shared last autumn. Hotel porters Gomez and Riley vie for the attentions of a mysterious female guest, the eccentric ‘Megs’ Buntly pays another visit, and a dramatic revelation about someone on staff will leave Maisie and everyone else reeling from the unexpected news. Is this the moment for the revelation Maisie has been waiting for since her Cornish journey began?

Brimming with humor, romance, and the kind of surprises its fans have come to expect, the seventh book in the series brings a twist at the end that’s sure to leave readers excited — and anxious — for the conclusion of Maisie’s original gorgeous Cornish adventure.

I’ve enjoyed reading this series by Laura Briggs about American Maisie who has dreams and aspirations to be an author. Maisie flew to Cornwall in the hopes of tracking down her favourite author, the last known details she had of the author was at the grand hotel Penmarrow on the Cornish clifftops. Maisie became a waitress at the hotel still in search of her dreams and of the author but she learned to love her job at the hotel and she soon became friends with another outsider to the area, Sidney Daniels. Maisie and Sidney’s relationship has left the readers with food for thought as each new episode reveals a little more about life and loves in Cornwall.

Maisie and Sidney have now taken the next step in their friendship and a courtship has bloomed, I love this tentative steps to a new life for them Sidney shows a new side to Maisie he is sweet and caring but there is still something in his past that Sidney is afraid to reveal.

This instalment in the series sees the hotel in chaos again as an astronomy conference is about to take place with the forthcoming comet due to light up the skies with clear views across Cornwall. Lots of new and interesting characters are arriving but astronomers are not the only interesting guests at the hotel, there’s a revelation or two to be discovered which could change the future for all concerned.

Another lovely instalment in this romantic saga set in Cornwall. Will Maisie’s dreams become a reality and will we get to find out who the reclusive famous author is? There’s intrigue and mystery, warmth and humour and a lovely romance on the Cornish clifftops.

Book Blurb

When Maisie accepts a celebrated author’s invitation to mentor her, she finds herself leaving Cornwall behind on train tracks bound for the glitter city of Paris. Instead of making beds and serving coffee at the Penmarrow hotel in Cornwall, she’s making notes on her manuscript while sitting in a French cafe, meeting famous writers at private dinner parties, and trying to ferret the secrets behind the author’s unfinished future novel. It’s glamorous, it’s breathtaking … but it’s also an ocean channel away from the place that she loves, and, more importantly, the person to whom she just recently confessed her deepest feelings. Separated from Sidney by distance and circumstances, Maisie fears that their connection will be lost despite her words to him – and maybe because of those words, and the ones she didn’t allow him to say in return.

Meanwhile, there are plenty of things in her new life trying to distract her – the professional editor hired to critique her novel, the eager young literary agent who sees pie-in-the-sky potential for Maisie’s talent, but Maisie finds solace in the eclectic group of amateur writers into whose midst she finds herself by accident. Their critique and advice is fast becoming as important as the editors – maybe even more important than the published author Maisie believed held the keys to refining her skill.

But it’s missing Sidney that fills Maisie’s thoughts the most, along with her life back in Port Hewer, and she can’t stop wondering whether his feelings are the same as her own. His unspoken answer has become one of the most important pieces of her life, even as she struggles to match the pace of her new life and keep her dreams in sight. And when she unwittingly becomes privy to a seeming literary conspiracy, she must decide what to do in light of its truth – and decide what’s most important in her quest to become a professional writer.

Join Maisie in a whirlwind tour across two of the world’s greatest cities, filled with questions, dreams, and a chance for fame that she believed far beyond her grasp, as she discovers herself as a writer, and how to embrace an unexpected future on her own terms.

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push for A Train from Penzance to Paris by Laura Briggs.

This is the 5th book in the A Little Hotel in Cornwall series and we continue from the cliffhanger from the last book when Maisie declares her feelings for Sidney but she also say goodbye to him and her life at the hotel in Cornwall.  Maisie has a dream to become an author and has been working at the hotel in Cornwall hoping to get a glimpse of her favourite author, Alistair Davies.  When she does eventually meet him and is granted mentoring advice from the esteemed author Maisie can’t believe her luck.  Her personal life is finally feeling like it’s about to change course but she’s about to pause this voyage as she embarks on a journey of literary enlightenment on a trip of a lifetime to Paris then onto London with her favourite author.

This was such an exciting opportunity for Maisie and I was thrilled to experience this next step in her career.  I loved travelling to Paris with Maisie, her partner in literary crime was effervescent, quirky and had a great social circle.  The introduction of new characters was a great change of storyline and I found myself falling for the charms of Arnold and Michael, two very unique personalities a little lost in their worlds but I feel great things are to come from these two and I hope the author treats us to snippets from their new journeys.

The ending of this instalment once again left us with longing for the next book, before reading this I felt like I knew some answers to my questions in my head but now I’m all confused and have more unanswered queries.  Also, what is to become of Maisie and Sidney?  Was it absence makes the heart grow fonder or is it too late to mend the gap that appeared in their friendship?

A Little Hotel in Cornwall is a fabulous contemporary romance series that keeps getting better and better.

As spring slips away from the hotel Penmarrow, excitement builds for an exclusive auction hosted at the hotel, featuring priceless possessions from a Hollywood actress turned lady of the manor, including her famous diamonds. Celebrities and collectors form a crowd that is keeping Maisie and the rest of staff busy, even as Maisie faces a crossroads for her manuscript.

But when the diamonds are stolen and Sidney is accused by the authorities, Maisie’s dilemma as a writer is pushed aside out of fear that his future in Port Hewer is in jeopardy. Desperation to prove that someone else is behind the theft will lead Maisie to uncover a very different secret outside of jewel thieves and village rumors … one that could change her life and her future forever.

Can Maisie deal with the latest secrets exposed — including those that paint Sidney’s past in a questionable light? And as summer’s dawn alters her idyllic life in Cornwall, will Maisie’s feelings for Sidney change as well?

I am so pleased to be involved in the Publication Day Push for the next instalment in Laura Briggs A Little Hotel in Cornwall series: The Cornish Secret of Summer’s Promise.

This is book four in A Little Hotel in Cornwall series and our would-be writer Maisie is still no where near her dream of becoming a published author.  However, after spending nearly a year in Cornwall working at the prestigious hotel on the clifftops Maisie feels like she has gained much more.

The hotel is excited for the next big event, a celebrity auction of jewels and memorabilia that once belonged to a Hollywood actress.  The hotel is in chaos as security is tightened and new guests arrive to view the artefacts.  However, disaster strikes and a theft occurs and it doesn’t take long before the finger of suspicion is pointed to a few of our well loved characters.  Can Maisie help herself and her friends find the thief?

The author, Laura Briggs, has filled this instalment with so many twists and turns that I didn’t foresee.  I thought I knew who was what but Laura Briggs has given us a book filled with many treats and surprises.  The ending was quite emotive but it’s left the author and reader plenty of new adventures to come.

Drama, mayhem, romance and the chance of a dream come true.
