Finding Happiness at Penvennan Cove by Linn B Halton #Review #PenvennanCoveSeriesBook3


We're returning to Cornwall for Linn B Halton's Finding Happiness at Penvennan Cove which will be published by Aria on November 10th. This is the third in her Penvennan Cove series and you can read my reviews of the first two in the series here: Coming Home to Penvennan Cove

      |  Making Waves at Penvennan Cove 

Escape to Cornwall with this beautiful page-turning novel set in PenvennanCove –third book in the Cornish romance series by bestselling author Linn B. Halton!

Kerra Shaw's happiness should be complete when the love of her life moves into her cottage. But there is trouble in her beloved Penvennan Cove and Kerra knows she won't be able to enjoy her new start with Ross until she's put things right.

Two struggling businesses threaten to change the beach at Penvennan Cove forever. The Lark and Lantern, an inn at the heart of the community, is struggling and a corporate chain is trying to redevelop the site. Meanwhile, The Salvager's Yard nearby is becoming an eyesore that brings down the area.

Kerra knows she can find the perfect solution, but with her eyes on the community, will Kerra miss the tensions in her own life? Can Kerra find her own happy ending, or could putting others first cost her what she deserves most?



‘Oh it was so very lovely to be back with the characters of Penvennan Cove. To catch up with what everyone had been up to and to see how life had moved on forthe people in the book series.... This is a great addition to the Penvennan Cove series.’ NetGalley Reviewer‘

'Find a beach towel...grab a cool drink...lose yourself at the beach or by the pool...enjoy an afternoon with this story...a quick fun read...’ NetGalley Reviewer

‘Brilliant writing and storyline as usual can't wait to read more from this author’ NetGalley Reviewer

 My Thoughts

The final instalment in the series does not disappoint. All the familiar characters are there and you really get a sense of the community and of their lives all continuing alongside each other. Kerra is central to so many of the initiatives. She has a knack of empowering other people. She seems to be able to see opportunities and to put people in a position where they can succeed. She does seem to have sorted out her priorities and knows the value of human relations as opposed to material possessions. 

    As this is the final part of the series, you can sense that lots of loose ends are being tied up. The storylines are managed skilfully and keep you guessing. Ross proves to be a sensitive and vulnerable lead character and a good foil to Kerra’s personality. Friendship and family are important aspects and give the story warmth and depth. I will miss the visits to Penvennan Cove. Perhaps one day…

In short: a stunning setting and well drawn characters come together to add up to a gorgeous story.
