A Cornish Christmas at Pear Tree Farm by Angela Britnell
The novel is set in Cornwall, where Nessa owns Pear Tree Farm. Her sister-in-law, American Ashley, begins a romance with Welsh former soldier Crispin, and all seems to be going well between them, until Crispin receives a letter that leaves him trying to figure out what step to take next. As everyone at Pear Tree Farm gets involved in the ‘Christmas, Cornish Style’ weekends they are organizing, has Ashley and Crispin’s relationship finished forever?
This is the second book in the Pear Tree Farm series, but I haven’t read the first one and easily understood what was going on in this book, as the author explains any relevant backstory.
It is an easy, light read, I finished it in a day. The characters come to life beautifully and I really enjoyed the community feel. There is quite a small cast of characters, so it’s easy to get to know everyone and they are a highlight of the story, as you care about them and want things to turn out well for all of them.
I enjoyed Angela Britnell’s book and hope there are more books to come in the Pear Tree Farm series.
