Maisie Clark is desperate to find an author to act as her mentor for a prestigious writing scheme. She travels from LA to Cornwall to seek out a reclusive author and ends up working as a maid at the hotel where he writes.
A Little Hotel in Cornwall box set contains 8 novellas, all between 150 and 250 pages each.
The first novella is also titled A Little Hotel in Cornwall and sees Maisie start her journey. It is written from her first person perspective and the style of writing is easy to read. There is plenty of humour as Maisie finds herself a job as a maid by pretending to be someone else. She also has to keep this a secret from her rich ex boyfriend who happens to be at the hotel. Maisie experiences the beginning of a new potential romance with local man Sidney. I enjoyed the premise of the book and Maisie’s bravery and passion shine through.
Maisie’s quest continues in the second novella which is titled A Spirited Girl on Cornish Shores. She continues to hide her identity from most of the characters and her relationship with Sidney develops further. The light hearted tone is maintained although this story is set around Halloween so has a spooky undertone as well. Maisie is a strong lead character and so easy to like that we really want her to succeed.
I look forward to reading the rest of the box set this summer and seeing how Maisie’s character develops as she strives to achieve her dream.
