Educated, beautiful and the daughter of a prosperous merchant, Angelica Lilly has been invited to spend the summer in high society. Her father’s wealth is opening doors, and attracting marriage proposals, but Angelica still feels like an imposter among the aristocrats of Cornwall.
When her brother returns home, ill and under the influence of a dangerous man, Angelica’s loyalties are tested to the limit. Her one hope lies with coachman Henry Trevelyan, a softly spoken, educated man with kind eyes. But when Henry seemingly betrays Angelica, she has no one to turn to. Who is Henry, and what does he want? And can Angelica save her brother from a terrible plot that threatens to ruin her entire family?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Nicola Pryce’s latest novel: The Cornish Lady.
The Cornish Lady is book four in the Cornish saga series by Nicola Pryce. Each book in the series can be read as a standalone and I have proved this notion as The Cornish Lady is my first introduction to the work of Nicola Pryce. Each story is set along the rugged coastline of Cornwall and we travel back in time to the late 1700’s. Nicola Pryce creates strong female leads in each novel and The Cornish Lady is no exception with Miss Angelica Lilly taking centre stage.
Angelica Lilly is the daughter of a wealthy merchant and is keen to fulfil her late mother’s wishes to marry a Lord. But one hot summer whilst visiting family friends her life is about to take a dramatic and enlightening journey. When Angelica’s brother, Edgar, turns up looking dishevelled, distracted and acting rather bizarrely Angelica is starting to fear for his health and his new friendship with Lord Jacob Boswell. Does Jacob Boswell have an unhealthy control over her brother? A race to help her brother brings forth danger and drama, unearthing secrets involving embezzlement and exploitation.
I have to admit it did take me a little while to get into the story and characters but my goodness once the author changed gear in the storyline I felt myself engulfed by the drama and felt invested in the characters lives and was eager to learn what happened next.
The Cornish Lady was filled with drama, intrigue, mystery with a charming romance at the heart of the story. I’m now keen to learn more about the other books in the Cornish Saga series.
