The Governess of Penwythe Hall (The Cornwall Novels) Book Review

The Governess of Penwythe Hall (The Cornwall Novels) By Sarah E. Ladd

Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request for her to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she’s tried desperately to forget.
Jac Twethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced, he battles both grief at his brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.
Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.
My Thoughts: I have to start with saying that while this book was given to me so that I could review it, that doesn't change my opinion of it at all. This is a slow paced, calm book, with a slow burning romance, perfect for relaxing. It's sweet and wholesome, which I really like for younger (teen) readers and it really pulled me in. While it isn't the most exciting romance novel, I really enjoyed reading it.
