#BookReview A Secret Rose by Kirsty Ferry #PublicationDay


ABOUT THE BOOK

A fabulous new story from Kirsty Ferry set in Cornwall. Perfect summer reading! 

“Wherever you go, I will follow …” 
Merryn Burton is excited to travel down to Cornwall to start her first big job for the London art dealers she works for. But as soon as she arrives at Pencradoc, a beautiful old mansion, she realises this will be no ordinary commission. 

Not only is Pencradoc filled with fascinating, and possibly valuable artwork, it is also owned by the Penhaligon brothers – and Merryn’s instant connection with Kit Penhaligon could be another reason why her trip suddenly becomes a whole lot more interesting. 

But the longer Merryn stays at Pencradoc the more obvious it is that the house has a secret, and a long-forgotten Rose might just hold the key …

MY REVIEW

An old mansion in Cornwall  full of secrets - a dual timeline - romance - family history... yes, yes, yes!!  Hopefully this is the start of another lovely series to be set in this idyllic setting.

 It's fair to say I loved spending time in the company of Merryn Burton as she travels to Cornwall and the Pencradoc home recently inherited by the Penhaligon brothers and they are eager to have the art collection appraised by her, and the moment she arrives the deja-vu feelings start and she feels an incredible connection with both the house and Kit Penhaligon - it's as if they already know one another.

I really do love the dual timelines that Kirsty seems to write with ease - the now timeline works so seamlessly with the jaunts back to the past and the characters of Alys , Jago and Zennor also have an intriguing and thrilling story to tell - can lessons be learnt from the past or will history be repeating itself once more?

There's so much to be uncovered at Pencradoc that Merryn finds herself unable to leave and move on and it was so atmospheric and easy to follow that I didn't want to leave either!  Loved the sibling rivalry, the ghosts, the drama and the love stories - it made for the perfect mix for a fabulous read!
