*BLOG TOUR* The Cornish Key to Happiness – Laura Briggs ★★★★

Blurb; Past secrets return to complicate Maisie’s future with the charming Sidney Daniels in the final installment of the Cornish romance series.
Picking up where book seven left off, Maisie’s plans to celebrate her book’s thrilling news remain on hold after Sidney has vanished from Port Hewer overnight, following a brush with his secret past. His departure leaves Maisie with a head full of questions and a heart torn in two, made even worse by the rumors flying about him through the town. Where and why has he gone? Will he ever come back again? And—foremost in Maisie’s mind—was the heartache from his younger days somehow to blame for his sudden and mysterious flight?
But when Dean convinces her that Sidney may be facing a choice that could ruin his life, Maisie must set out to find him, once again leaving behind the Cornish seaside haven of Port Hewer she’s come to think of as home, and leaving behind the answer to a secret she’s been longing to know since the beginning. Not knowing when or if she’ll return, she’s taking the biggest risk with her heart so far…and the truth she discovers waiting for her at the end of her journey will make her wonder if things can ever possibly be the same as they were before.
Questions are answered, secrets are spilled, and the biggest reveal of the series is finally unveiled as A LITTLE HOTEL IN CORNWALL reaches its exciting conclusion.

My Review; Well ain’t I an idiot huh? This is book eight in a little hotel in Cornwall series and I have not read any books before this one. D’oh! Stupid me eh. Didn’t really work for me as a standalone as I came into this series extremely late.

Also there was no chapters at all! It’s one continuous long story from start to finish, would have been better for me with chapters added. I understood the story but it was mostly set in one location a huge mansion… The ending was nice though. We all love a good ending right?

Sidney/Alex is torn into two between his past life, family and secrets and the future and life he wants to live. Maisie just wants to make sure he does what he thinks is best and make sure he happy. I liked her character. An easy, shortish read. Four stars from me. A good read.
