The Cornish Affair

By Laura Lockington

Fin thinks she’s finished with love.

A dedicated food lover, she potters around her country kitchen with Nelson the bad tempered parrot, Baxter the dog and her delightfully vague Aunt, Nancy. 

Her days are spent creating ambitious recipes and gazing out onto the Cornish coast from her cliff top home – The House of Dolphins.

But this summer something is about to change. 
At the annual Port Charles beach party the glamorous TV chef Oliver Dean is making an appearance

Rich, worldly, and successful he couldn’t be more different from Fin.

And yet sometimes opposites attract. 

And suddenly Fin realises that romance is on the menu.

But does she still know the ingredients for a a ‘Cornish Affair’? 

Or is this a recipe for heartbreak? 

‘The Cornish Affair’ is a delicious marriage of romance and food. 

It is perfect for lovers of cooking and romance — and anyone who has ever had a sunny – or rainy – stay in Cornwall.

“A laugh-out-loud foodie romance. Throw in the magic of Cornwall, beach picnics, a handsome TV chef and the eccentric inhabitants of Port Charles and I guarantee you won’t be able to put it down!” – Sarah Rayner, best-selling author of ‘One Moment, One Morning’.

When she’s not in the kitchen or mentally cataloguing the contents of her cupboards, Laura Lockington is a writer and playwright. Random House published her first two books, ‘Stargazy Pie’ and ‘Capers in the Sauce’. She has also co-written several plays for BBC Radio 4, including a comedy set in a beach hut. She shares her flat with a Frenchman, a wire haired fox terrier and a greedy fridge that demands feeding with monotonous regularity.
