A Little Hotel in Cornwall#ad - But when the hotel mistakes her for the latest applicant for a maid's position, Maisie finds herself given an opportunity too good to lose. Will maisie find the chance she's been waiting for — and a possible new romance — in her perfect Cornish summer?A feel-good, escapist romance in the spirit of adventurous titles by Jill Mansell, Lucy Coleman, and Hannah Ellis! .
When she receives the author's reply in an envelope with a Cornish postmark, Maisie decides not to take the writer's half-hearted 'no' for an answer. And a chance for a summer adventure far bigger than she ever imagined. Surrounded by breathtaking cornwall and working in an elegant hotel, charming local resident Sidney Daniels has her conflicted about her heart's desires, a certain handsome, and unintentional mishaps — and despite reminders of past relationship disasters, quirky friends, Maisie's world becomes one of secret identities, too.
A Little Hotel in Cornwall #ad - Desperate, a celebrated but reclusive English novelist, she decides to take a chance and ask her favourite writer, to help her find a second chance. Struggling american waitress and aspiring novelist Maisie Clark dreams of becoming a full-time writer — even though in real life she's just lost her chance at an exclusive writer's mentorship program that would give her novel its big break.
With nothing to lose, she takes off for the author's last known location, a beautiful hotel on Cornwall's western coast.
A Train from Penzance to Paris A Little Hotel in Cornwall Book 5#ad - Their critique and advice is fast becoming as important as the editors – maybe even more important than the published author Maisie believed held the keys to refining her skill. And when she unwittingly becomes privy to a seeming literary conspiracy, she must decide what to do in light of its truth – and decide what’s most important in her quest to become a professional writer.
Join maisie in a whirlwind tour across two of the world’s greatest cities, and a chance for fame that she believed far beyond her grasp, dreams, filled with questions, as she discovers herself as a writer, and how to embrace an unexpected future on her own terms. Separated from sidney by distance and circumstances, Maisie fears that their connection will be lost despite her words to him – and maybe because of those words, and the ones she didn’t allow him to say in return.
A Train from Penzance to Paris A Little Hotel in Cornwall Book 5 #ad - Meanwhile, there are plenty of things in her new life trying to distract her – the professional editor hired to critique her novel, the eager young literary agent who sees pie-in-the-sky potential for Maisie’s talent, but Maisie finds solace in the eclectic group of amateur writers into whose midst she finds herself by accident.
His unspoken answer has become one of the most important pieces of her life, even as she struggles to match the pace of her new life and keep her dreams in sight. Instead of making beds and serving coffee at the penmarrow hotel in Cornwall, meeting famous writers at private dinner parties, she’s making notes on her manuscript while sitting in a French cafe, and trying to ferret the secrets behind the author’s unfinished future novel.
When maisie accepts a celebrated author’s invitation to mentor her, she finds herself leaving Cornwall behind on train tracks bound for the glitter city of Paris. It’s glamorous, and, more importantly, it’s breathtaking … but it’s also an ocean channel away from the place that she loves, the person to whom she just recently confessed her deepest feelings.
