I first discovered Cressida McLaughlin’s lovely writing when I reviewed The Staycation here for My Weekly earlier this year. Today I’m delighted to review Cressida’s latest book The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop, again for My Weekly.
Cressida also has a short story in this week’s bumper edition of My Weekly magazine.
The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop was published by Harper Collins on 10th November 2022 and is available for purchase through the links here.
The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop
Ollie Spencer has started a new life in the idyllic Cornish seaside town of Port Karadow. Throwing herself into her job at the town’s bookshop, A New Chapter, is one way to make friends. The shop is glitzing up for first Christmas and Ollie hopes her inspired ideas will give the shop the edge it needs to dazzle the town.
But far from being the Sugar Plum fairy the place needs, Ollie is fast becoming its Christmas pudding. With the bookshop’s success at stake, Ollie turns to twinkly-eyed café owner Max for help. Can he help Ollie to turn the page, and put the sparkle back into her Cornish dream?
My Review of The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop
My full review of The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop can be found online on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that The Cornish Cream Tea Bookshop is absolutely brilliant. I adored it and it’s and one of my favourite reads in 2022.
