A Cornish Affair by Liz Fenwick
Jude's life is not what she wants it to be. She feels as if she is someone she's not. But she doesn't know who she is. Bad thing is that she realizes this just as she is about to walk down the aisle. She leaves the church. Everyone is hurt especially John, who she was to marry. Her parents are angry. But that is nothing new for Jude. They don't seem to really want her.
Now she has no place to live or a job to go to because she and John were moving to London for his job. She takes her ticket and flies to London anyway. Her godmother, Barbara, invites her to stay. Jude doesn't know what she will do for work Barbara finds her a job in Cornwall helping an old friend Petroc Trevillion collate his papers. Jude is thrilled because he is a garden historian, like she is.
She gets to Cornwall and tries to work with Petroc but is confused with what he wants her to do. Then he dies suddenly and she is thrown into family drama. His son Tristan is a force of nature which Jude is falling for. John keeps popping in from London trying to get her back. Jude is trying to get Tristan to love Pengarrock, the family home and gets involved in trying to find some lost treasure.
Will Jude also find her self along the way?
I really enjoyed this story. Poor Jude. Will she find someone to truly love her?
