Review: Making Waves at Penvennan Cove

Title: Making Waves at Penvennan Cove
Author: Linn B. Halton

Publisher: 14th October 2021 by Aria & Aries

Pages: 360 pages

How I Read It: ARC book

Genre: romance, contemporary, women’s fiction

My Rating: 3 crowns


For once, things are going well for thirty-year-old Kerra Shaw. She has a fulfilling job helping small businesses in the local community, she is within a few minutes' walk of all the people she loves best, and most importantly, she has finally got together with her childhood sweetheart, Ross.

It's not all plain sailing, though, because they have to keep their relationship a secret. The feud between their families still rages on, and Kerra doesn't want to pour fuel on its flame and risk losing everything.

But Kerra should know better than anyone that secrets don't stay hidden for long in a community like Penvennan Cove...

My Thoughts

‘… this is where I was born and brought up; this is where my roots are and yet I still feel that I’m that square peg in a round hole. And I don’t know why.’

Making Waves at Penvennan Cove is a delightful escape to a small village filled with quirky characters who love to gossip and where there is a lot going on for small town living.

This is Linn B. Halton’s second book in her Pennvennan Cove series. It would appear that reading these books sequentially as a series is important to a richer understanding of events. With there being a lot of people and a range of connections, at times it is challenging to keep up with it all. However, if loads of interaction and dialogue of the various goings-on in a tiny English village appeals, then this is certainly the book for you! To follow along the narration will be most appealing with the interweaving of all the characters and their escapades.

Making Waves at Penvennan Cove provides a window into village life on the coast. If you enjoy character driven drama then you will relish this cast of characters with their everyday adventures and incidental chatter not to mention the spectacular Cornish coast. 

‘As we take the winding track that leads us down through the mass of trees, the smell of the sea on the breeze is tantalising. I keep straining to catch glimpses of it as we weave in and out, stepping off the path where it’s a little churned up and still muddy from the recent storms.’
