Book Review: Confetti at the Cornish Cafe by Phillipa Ashley

The heart-warming new novel in Phillipa Ashley’s bestselling Cornish Cafe series

Cal and Demi are preparing to launch their beloved Kilhallon Resort as a wedding venue. Cakes are baking, Cornish flowers are blooming, and fairy lights are twinkling. With the cliff-top setting and coastal views, it’s the perfect place for a magical marriage ceremony.

But their first clients are no ordinary couple. The bride and groom are internationally famous actors Lily Craig and Ben Trevone. Kilhallon is about to host a celebrity wedding . . .

With the pressure on, Demi and Cal are doing all they can to keep their guests happy and avoid any wedding disasters. But is the unpredictable weather the only thing standing in the way of the Big Day?

As secrets surface and truths are told, can Demi and Cal ensure that Kilhallon’s first wedding is a success? One thing’s for sure, this will be a Cornish celebration to remember . . .

Unfortunately, another book that I read months ago, but have failed to complete a review as yet (I start, then get distracted, sorry!).  I actually brought this is a local bookstore at the beginning of the year, having read books by this author before, and I deemed it worthy of some of my book tokens!  So Demi and Cal are still together, and running the Cafe and Kilhallon between them.  They are looking to expand what is offered and it’s not long before Lily and Ben book for their “handfasting ceremony” (it’s certainly NOT a wedding, got it?).

Anyway, much of the book then covers the lead up to and the actual ceremony, with many of the expected dramas: Cal’s ex girlfriend remains heavily on the scene, inserting herself into everything, oblivious as to whether she is wanted or not; Demi’s stepmother proves to be a life saver more than once, even with Demi’s baby step-sister in tow; the media descend on the site, damaging the reputation of the new place in the process; Lily and Ben’s PR team prove to be a nightmare, making demands that Lily doesn’t actually want to happen; the yurts in the field prove to be a success, and Ben’s bodyguard is not all that he seems.

So, a strong addition to this series, progressing the site, the relationships etc of all those involved in the Cornish Cafe.
