It's May - Launch Month For A Cornish Affair

I can't believe how quickly this has come around but A CORNISH AFFAIR is out on the 23rd of May. The book is close to my heart for many reasons, but one of the biggest is that it's about running away...in fact the tag line is 'Sometimes running away is the answer...'


Running out on your wedding day never goes down well. When the pressure of her forthcoming marriage becomes too much, Jude bolts from the church, leaving a good man at the altar, her mother in a fury, and the guests with enough gossip to last a year.
Guilty and ashamed, Jude flees to Pengarrock, a crumbling cliff-top mansion in Cornwall, where she takes a job cataloguing the Trevillion family's extensive library. The house is a welcome escape for Jude, full of history and secrets, but when its new owner arrives, it's clear that Pengarrock is not beloved by everyone.
As Jude falls under the spell of the house, she learns of a family riddle stemming from a terrible tragedy centuries before, hinting at a lost treasure. And when Pengarrock is put up for sale, it seems that time is running out for the house and for Jude.



I have run away three times in my life and I'll tell you more about that later in the month but beginning tomorrow some fabulous novelists will be sharing their stories of running away... whether it was with a teddy and two sandwiches or some more recent...

So tomorrow the wonderful Paige Toon talks about the time she ran away.
