The Cornish Guest House
by Emma Burstall

Emma BurstallHello and welcome to my website! Thanks for calling by.

I hope you'll take a little time to browse around and please feel free to get in touch. I'd love to hear what you think about my books, what you're reading next and what you like and dislike in your fiction.

I write warm, funny, heartfelt novels about women, relationships and families. I hope you enjoy my latest, The Cornish Guest House, which is the second in a Cornish triology set in a fictional seaside village called Tremarnock. The research involved quite a few trips to my favourite part of Cornwall, which wasn't exactly a hardship, and as I'm writing Number Three in the series now, I'll have to go back soon. It's a hard life!

You might like to take a look at some of my previous books, too. There's some information about them here, plus photos of my bonkers, exasperating but utterly wonderful family.

Have a good day - and don't forget to email me!

What it's about


A new couple have arrived in Tremarnock, but will these glamorous strangers fit into village life? Book two in the Cornish Village series.

Tremarnock is a small fishing village, crowded with holidaymakers in the summer, but a sleepy Cornish backwater at other times of the year.

Here Liz has found refuge with her young daughter, Rosie, after her relationship with Rosie's father came unstuck. Now happily married to village restaurant owner, Robert Hart, all seems set for a quiet autumn and merry Christmas. But strangers have bought the local guest house and seem to have big plans. Why is he so charming and confident, but she so frightened? Are they who they say they are? And what are they really doing with the guest house?
