Book Review: New Dreams at Polkerran Point by Cass Grafton

A surprise inheritance will open the doors to her future, and also the past…

When Aunt Meg leaves her cottage to Anna Redding in her will, Anna immediately packs up and heads to Polkerran, the Cornish fishing village where she was so happy as a child.

With ambitions to turn the cottage into a B&B, a job working for the enigmatic historian, Oliver Seymour, and the return of her childhood crush, Alex Tremayne, it seems the stars have all aligned for Anna.

But Aunt Meg left behind a mystery for her to solve, and a shock discovery reveals she may be living a dream that isn’t really hers to hold. Can Anna rescue the new life she’s made for herself? Who in Polkerran can she really count on in her time of need?

A charming and cosy romance for fans of Trisha Ashley, Cressida McLaughlin and Suzanne Snow.

Previously published as The Cottage in the Cornish Cove.

My Review

“New Dreams at Polkerran Point” is a delightful journey that deserves a perfect 10 out of 10. Set against the picturesque backdrop of Cornwall, this book has a magical way of making you feel like you’ve stepped right into the heart of Polkerran Point.

The characters in this story are nothing short of fabulous. Anna Redding, the protagonist, embarks on an unexpected adventure when she inherits her Aunt Meg’s cottage. Her aspirations to transform it into a B&B, her intriguing job with historian Oliver Seymour, and the rekindling of her childhood crush, Alex Tremayne, create a tapestry of emotions that pull you in from the very beginning.

But what truly sets this tale apart is the mystery Aunt Meg leaves behind, and the shocking revelation that challenges the life Anna has begun to build. As you follow Anna’s journey to unravel the secrets of Polkerran Point, you’ll find yourself rooting for her every step of the way.

The charm of this book lies not only in its romance but also in its sense of community. It’s a heartwarming read that will transport you to the enchanting landscapes of Cornwall, thanks to the author’s vivid descriptions that paint Polkerran so beautifully in your mind.

“New Dreams at Polkerran Point” is a must-read. With its captivating storytelling and a cast of endearing characters finding their way between past and future, it’s a book that will leave you with a warm and contented feeling, just like a cozy visit to Cornwall.

Author Bio 

Cass began her writing life in Regency England, enlisted Jane Austen’s help to time-travel between then and the present day and is now happily ensconced in 21st century Cornwall. 

Well, in her imagination and soul; her heart and physical presence reside in northern England with her ever-patient husband and Tig and Tag, their cute but exceptionally demanding moggies. 

A bit of a nomad, Cass has called three countries home, as well as six different English counties, but her aspiration is to one day reunite with her beloved West Country.

In the meantime, she writes feel-good contemporary romances set in Cornwall and, in doing so, manages to live there vicariously through her characters and settings.
