Title: A Stargazy Night Sky (A Little Hotel in Cornwall #7)
Author: Laura Briggs
Published on: 5th August 2020
A Stargazy Night Sky is the seventh book in A Little Hotel in Cornwall series by Laura Briggs. This is the last but one in the series. We have some big revelations coming up in the final book.😁
Continuing from where we left in the previous book, Maisie and Sidney are now a couple. Sidney is still the same reserved-about-personal-life kinda guy but Maisie doesn’t worry much about it. She’s accepted Sidney might never want to divulge his past and she’s totally okay with it. The reason I am stressing on this particular topic is because, as the story ends, we do have a startling twist. A twist that might change the way we have been looking at Maisie and Sidney’s relationship.
Moving on, as the title suggests, it’s a Stargazy event at Penmarrow. A handful of astrologers have come over to observe a rare celestial event. George, whom we last saw in one of the previous books of this series, striking a chord with Molly(the maid at the hotel) is back too. Sparks fly between Molly and George and they do have an eventful evening.
We also see Megs Buntly aka fake Alistair Davies arrive at the hotel for her annual visit. Meanwhile, Maisie has sent her manuscript to a couple of publishers. We see some development in this department – I will keep this a suspense – would Maisie finally get to be a published author? Or, will her dreams remain unfulfilled? Only time will tell…
I am eagerly waiting to see how things turn out in the eighth and final book. I have been following this series from the start. So, it is going to be a bit emotional as I feel attached to the story and the characters. It is not going to be easy for me to read the words – “The End”. But as they say, all good things must come to an end. 🙂
Laura Briggs is a versatile writer. Be it romance, drama or mystery(remember the jewel thief Maisie ‘accidentally’ helped?), Laura Briggs’ storytelling is magical. The identity of the real Alistair Davies is going to be revealed in the final book – not that Maisie is eager to know about his secret identity. But I certainly am. If I have to bet on one character, I would say … um, his name starts with a D and ends with an N and has two vowels in between.😉
As this book is a part of a series, it cannot be read as a standalone. But if you are looking for a feel-good and charming read that boasts of excellent storytelling, this series must be on your radar.
Many thanks to the lovely Rachel for the blog tour invite.
