A Launch Party for A Cornish Affair....

Today A CORNISH AFFAIR hits the shelves and it's time to think of escaping to Cornwall and the Heroine Addicts are no exception....on our way there will be scones and clotted cream and champagne...

Running out on your wedding day never goes down well. When the pressure of her forthcoming marriage becomes too much, Jude bolts from the church, leaving a good man at the altar, her mother in a fury, and the guests with enough gossip to last a year.
Guilty and ashamed, Jude flees to Pengarrock, a crumbling cliff-top mansion in Cornwall, where she takes a job cataloguing the Trevillion family's extensive library. The house is a welcome escape for Jude, full of history and secrets, but when its new owner arrives, it's clear that Pengarrock is not beloved by everyone.
As Jude falls under the spell of the house, she learns of a family riddle stemming from a terrible tragedy centuries before, hinting at a lost treasure. And when Pengarrock is put up for sale, it seems that time is running out for the house and for Jude.

So on our escape to Cornwall to celebrate Christina is bringing Eythor Ingi so he can sing to us...

And Julie Cohen is bring Paul Bettany and his lovely jack russell (which is so cheeky since I saw him first on a Cornish Lane!!!)
And of course Julie has brought some treats for the lovely dog...

Biddy intends to nick my kayak and a bottle of wine and take Lawrence Fox on a private trip down Frenchman's Creek...

Susanna is thinking long walks so she is bringing Bertie and a pair of Wellies to go puddle splashing with him...

Finally as my companion I'd bring Matthew MacFadyen as I based the hero of A Cornish Affair, Tristan, on him...particularly from this clip of Pride and Prejudice....
And to give us all a sense of Cornwall here's the book trailer that my daughter made for me...

What and who would you bring along to the launch party???


  1. Happy launch day, Liz! Great group of guests we've got, here.

    I just wanted to point out that little Bertie the terrier is a rescue dog who's currently looking for a new home in Cornwall, with the help of the National Animal Welfare Trust. Details can be found here:

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go listen to Eythor again...

  2. Happy publication day, Liz! Great party - as you know I adore scones!

    So wish I could adopt little Bertie, he looks adorable! Sadly I don't think my three dogs would accept him, but I hope he finds a really good home soon!

    (Eythor is great, isn't he? Can't stop watching him either :-)

  3. I would love Bertie but with my time divided between Cornwall and Dubai it isn't going to happen...

    Pours more champagne and listens to Eythor....


  4. Congratulations, Liz! Hope you're having a fab day. Very best of luck with A Cornish Affair. It sounds brilliant. Great post! :) Xx
