The Cornish Midwife

I hadn’t read this author before and was looking forward to reading The Cornish Midwife.

The Cornish Midwife

Welcome to the beautiful seaside town of Port Agnes.

A fresh start…

Midwife Ella Mehenick left the small Cornish town of Port Agnes for London and never looked back. But when her seemingly perfect life crashes down around her, there’s only one place she can heal her battered heart – the place she once called home. 

A new arrival…

Ella is quickly welcomed into the small community midwife team and loves her new job caring for mums and their precious babies – it’s what she does best! But being back also means facing ex-flame Dan Ferguson…the first man to break her heart. 

A second chance at love?

Dan is still as gorgeous as ever, but he’s never forgiven Ella for leaving. And now she’s back it’s clear that there is unfinished business between them. As Ella settles into her new/old life, she can’t stop the memories of how she once loved Dan so completely – and maybe never stopped.

Maybe coming home to Cornwall is Ella’s chance to love again…

Meet The Cornish Midwives of Port Agnes- where community, friendship and love are always delivered.

An uplifting and escapist read, perfect for fans of Christie Barlow, Jessica Redland and Holly Martin!

My review

Ella returns home to lick her wounds after a broken engagement, to be near her parents again and to take up a job as a community midwife. She reconnects with her old friends and meets up with an old love. Could she make a life again in Port Agnes.

This was an engrossing read with great characters and a wonderful setting. I particularly liked the family element that was a large part of the story. The birth stories brought their share of drama to the book making it even more interesting.

I loved this easy to read, sweet, second-chance romance.
