Return to Cornwall written and self-published by Laura Briggs is available NOW in ebook format.
The sequel novel to the best-selling UK series A WEDDING IN CORNWALL brings new surprises, romance, humor, and wedding bells, to readers who fell in love with the first stories.
Busy mother of two Julianne Rose has extended her talents beyond the manor house, opening her own event planning agency with the help of no-nonsense best friend Kitty. Balancing the chaos of daily life with their respective careers in their beloved Cornish village means Julianne can rarely snatch a romantic moment with handsome husband Matt. And just when it seems things couldn’t get any more chaotic, a sudden arrival at Cliffs House lands Julianne in the most unusual event of her career.
The reappearance of Percy or ‘the old earl’ after years of adventures abroad has temporarily shocked Lord William and Lady Amanda and set the entire village abuzz with gossip. Grizzled, spry, and delightfully eccentric, he’s returned with a most unusual set of traveling companions: an archaeological team digging in a spot whispered to have ties with the legendary Camelot. But it’s Percy’s ties with a certain charming woman among its team that has everyone taken by surprise, along with the news of their soon-to-be nuptials.
Tasked with planning the big day, Julianne and Kitty spring at this opportunity despite its rushed timeline and their own woes regarding the renovation of their future event space. But as the big day rolls closer for the earl and his bride-to-be – with cakes and wedding flowers competing with pottery shards and an ancient warrior chieftain’s grave for attention — are there still surprising revelations to come?
Adding to the excitement is the return of former Cliffs House maid Gemma, whose posh new life as a novelist may not be all it seems … and Dinah visits in a flurry of festive baking for a holiday competition on everyone’s favorite baking show. Kitty’s life is in a tizz regarding both family and secrets … and Julianne’s happy marriage is challenged by an unwelcome sexy-and-persistent suitor among the summer visitors.
Filled with old friends, new adventures, and heartwarming Cornish charm, RETURN TO CORNWALL is an all-new, full-length novel—the first one ever to feature the characters from the original series!

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Laura Briggs latest novel: Return to Cornwall.
Return to Cornwall is a full length novel and sequel to the bestselling A Wedding in Cornwall series by Laura Briggs. I have to admit I have only read the first novella in the series so to go from book one to book thirteen took me a little while to settle in with the characters in Return to Cornwall. Although with the full and varied cast of characters laid out in front of me I was soon warming and enjoying this delightful bunch.
It was wonderful to return to Cornwall and the gorgeous coastal setting, I loved experiencing life a few years on from when I first met Julianne and Matt and their lives have been blessed with two young children and they are also kept busy with Julianne’s event planning business and Matt’s horticultural expertise.
Julianne with her business partner Kitty thought they had experienced the biggest wedding of their careers but when an old stalwart figure from the village returns with a boat full of archaeologists searching for the lost remains of an ancient chieftain life for the events team becomes very interesting and the village is soon wrapped up in the history of the area.
Another villager has also returned to Cornwall bringing forth more excitement.
With life moving at different paces for the young couple Julianne starts to worry that their initial spark in the relationship has fizzled.
There are also concerns of matters of the heart from many other sub-characters in the storyline and you are left wondering which direction cupid’s arrow will point.
A story full of fascination with it’s archaeological references, full of fun, intrigue, warmth and romance.
