"Burstall is a great writer, and this is not your usual run-of-the-mill chick lit... I was gripped from the start." Daily Mail
"A heart-warming, 'feel-good' novel that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside." Book Bag
Bramble Challoner has had a very normal upbringing. She lives in a semi in the suburbs of London with her parents and works at the call centre down the road. She still goes out with the boy she met at school. At weekends they stay in and watch films on the telly and sometimes hold hands. Bramble is dying for an adventure.
So when her very grand grandfather, Lord Penrose, dies, leaving his huge, rambling house in Cornwall to her, Bramble packs her bags immediately, dragging along her best friend Katie. The sleepy village of Tremarnock had better be ready for its newest residents...
Rating - 4/5
The Tremarnock Summer is the third installment in the Tremarnock series. Everything is beautiful in this book, right from the cover to the story to the writing.
It's the story of Bramble Challoner. She is happy with her life, parents, friends and a boyfriend, what more could she want? But it's not all enough. She needs something more. So when she inherits an estate she can taste the beginnings of changes and is ready for an adventure!
She fights, overcomes every obstacle and not let anything lead her down. I was even cheering for her at times and I was so glad to see her succeed. We get to meet other Tremarnock residents. It was nice to read about them as well. Liz seems to be one of the main characters. She was quite lovely helping people around. I liked her. Since this is the third book and I only just read this one I felt like I missed on Liz's past story so would like to read the books in the future. But having said that, this book can be read as a standalone so that's good too.
This is a nice summer read about characters in a town situated by the sea making it a perfect beach read.
