I seem to be reading a lot of books based in Cornwall and I was happy to read A Cornish Summer At Pear Tree Farm, another book based in this lovely locale.
Cornish charm and a Tennessee twist – the perfect pair?
Nessa Vivian is determined to keep her parents’ business afloat, but Pear Tree Farm near the backwater Cornish village of Polgarth didn’t do well as farm, and it’s not faring much better as a camp site. Maybe it’s due to Nessa’s habit of taking in troubled runaways, like ex-soldier Crispin, for next to nothing. Or perhaps her highly-strung sister Lowena is right – caravans named after Beatles’ songs and homegrown pears are not enough to turn the farm into a tourist haven.
Then another troubled runaway turns up, posing the greatest threat yet. Ex-musician Ward Spencer from Tennessee is certainly intriguing, but could his plans to put nearby Tregereth House on the map mean Pear Tree Farm is finished – or does his arrival signal a second lease of life, and not just for Nessa’s business?

My Review of A Cornish Summer At Pear Tree Farm
Struggling to keep the farm and campsite business that she inherited from her parents, Nessa is happy to welcome new camper, Ward Spencer. What she doesn’t realize is that Ward is no ordinary camper. He’s a successful musician who has walked away from his life and now wants to settle into the large house he’s bought next to Nessa’s farm. What’s more he’s going to start a B&B. How Ward manages to convince her that he’s not really the competition and how they both work to build their respective businesses makes for a lovely read.
Nessa is a big hearted girl who has long time campers who don’t pay her but she’s happy to have them, much to her more practical sister’s irritation. Ward too is soft-hearted and very protective of his family and the people he loves.
I love how the story evolved and how a community of sorts is formed and how supportive every one is of each other. Also how most of the characters in the story gets a second chance at life. I read this sweet story straight through.
