    There are some incredibly interesting characters featuring this in book from Fin who the story revolves around who can describe the weather in soup flavours to Martha a food historian who is full of interesting facts about food although she does try to serve medieval fare to people and then there is the TV Chef Oliver Dean who certainly knows his food Obviously the common theme from all my favourite characters is that they love food and since Fin creates the recipes involved in ready meals there is a fair amount of food talk and recipe testing going on all of which made me uite hungry This is set to the backdrop of Port Charles a small cornish town and Fin's stunning cliff top house which is known as The House of Dolphins Fin lives there with her aunt Nancy who is another great character and full of spark her dog Baxter who really doesn't seem to like her parrot Nelson Nelson is brilliant he managed to pick the most inappropriate things to repeat and generally seems to be uite a clever bird It's not just all food and animals though and the middle of the book really ramps up the drama of the story and feels like it is based on real recurring events which makes it all the upsetting in some respects There is romance too from the almost mail order bride to talk of arranged marriages the older generation flirting and of course whether Fin herself will find love or not I found The Cornish Affair to be a pleasant story by an author that I have enjoyed previously that I did enjoy reading

    I don't think there are as many errors as I expected I've read worst grammar in free readsIt was a cute little story Nothing taxing Yes a little predictable as all is well that ends well But for me an ideal Kindle read to have on the go in tangent with other 'real' books

    Laura Lockington is a new to me author And I want to say how glad I am I found herFin is a chef She creates foods which are generally marketed for those people who need something uick to fix for dinner She is very creative and she loves the thought and effort taken to create something truly wonderful Her entire life has become her home her village and the food she creates Fin lives in her home The House of Dolphins on the top of a Cornish cliff She shares her home with her Aunt Nancy and a dog named Baxter who hates the parrot named NelsonShe grew up in this home and it is filled with her family memories and history It ties her to her late parents and all the joy she shared with them when she was a child Rooms and objects bring forth her past life and the sense of security she had in the pastThe village where she lives Port Charles is a fishing village which has seen better days At one time there was a tin mine which provided jobs but now there is fishing for some and the hope of tourists for others But times are hardThe story is of every day life But it certainly could not be considered normal There are secrets disasters and just the general day to day lifeThis small town is populated by all sort of different people Each of them have a story to tell and each of those stories add to the atmosphere When the town is devastated by a storm this reader felt the pain and sense of loss which passed among the population But these people are not weaklings As soon as possible they start the recovery and repair to their homes and their townFin and Nancy and each of the others who populate this story are people who draw you in and make you want to share a hot cup of tea and a good chat Terrific story which is well written and filled with people who make wonderful friends

    HelloI have just abandoned The Cornish Affair in total disgust Please read my review“I don't know whether this is a problem with the Kindle book but the grammar and punctuation are uite simply appalling I have given up reading as I just can't cope with the number of errorsThese sentences are typical We'll have the drink I was reading in a book the other day they sounded delicious the world outside that sold any ingredient that couldn't be found in the Port Charles storeThe author jumps from one tense to another often within a single sentence wiping his hands and beamed at us Apostrophes seem to have escaped the author's attention completely Doris the bakers wife Compound words become single words pin point As for Laura Lockington's use of commas words fail me she hasn't a clue I cannot understand how a publisher can produce such absolute rubbish If this was a physical book it would be returned very smartly”

    A young woman Fin who has spent all her life in the moderate comfort of her family home in a Cornish fishing village has a famous TV chef foisted on her for a new project An innovative chef herself she resents his presence at first but when the village and house fall victim to a freak storm the two become closer In the aftermath Fin has to face up to the fact that she might lose her home to coastal erosion With a strong theme of food this is delicious story to be savoured perhaps over a glass of chilled white wine One drawback for me though was the odd mistake in spelling or transposition A good copy editor would have eliminated this problem However these niggles do not detract from a good read

    I categorized it as a romance buit in reality it's not and that was my main problem with the book It's not a real romance in the sense that much time is devoted to the interaction between the heroine and the hero so to speak Here we're introduced to a whole lot pf side characters it actually takes a while for the love interest to make an appearance and she even sleeps with someone else first Erm not my style Also as others have noted as well the typos were horrific to the point of completely distracting me from reading And the end that was the weirdest and most abrupt ending ever It seems to me the author needs to decide on a genre and stick with it this didn't work at all

    I enjoyed the story It was a light easy read Nothing too special The number of typos and errors was extremely distracting I know the book was a freebie on but the number of errors wasn't really acceptable
