Book Review – A Golden Cornish Summer By Phillipa Ashley

Under the golden Cornish sun, buried treasure and family secrets will change Emma’s life forever… 

Emma loved her life in the seaside village of Silver Cove. But when the discovery of sunken treasure ignited a feud between her family and that of Luke, her first love, everything fell apart. Heartbroken and betrayed, she fled.

Now, as she wades into the sparkling surf for the first time in fifteen years, she remembers everything she loved about this beautiful place. Then a huge wave knocks her off her feet. Wet and dripping, Emma is rescued by none other than Luke – who is, to her dismay, even more handsome than ever.

Emma starts to wonder if returning home was a huge mistake. Or could the real treasure have been waiting here for her all along?

My Review

After 15 years, Emma found herself to be back to her native Cornwall to get some inspiration for her work without realising that her first love, Luke is also in Silver Cove and is staying in her former home. 

With Luke around, her past came back to haunt her forcing her to confront them. I love the way how her pasts was narrated and how all of her life’s puzzle pieces come back together. There are many secrets that people has been keeping and these was revealed which help Emma and Luke to understand and accept their relationship.

It is a perfect summer read in a breathtaking setting. I love the characters in this book and the friendship between the community.
