Book Review: Tremarnock Summer


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…


I found this novel to be too predicable. The plot and writing style was not enticing in the slightest. I thought it would be interesting and peaceful however maybe it is due to the fact this is the third book in the series? I’m not too sure as I seem to not have found any inspirational books lately including new characters as I have not enjoyed them in this novel. 

I found Bramble to be very naive as she trusts too easily and some characters where not needed. I have been kind by giving this novel 2/5 stars.
