From New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Ciji Ware...

A different latitude...a different world...

Meredith Champlin unexpectedly finds herself the legal guardian of a child she's never met: Janet Barton Stowe, an unruly eleven-year-old "Beverly Hills brat," whose mother - Meredith's cousin-- has died in a private plane crash.

At the urging of the child's Anglo-American aunt, Lady Blythe Barton-Teague, Meredith and her Welsh Corgi decamp from Wyoming to spend the summer at Barton Hall, a shabby-chic castle perched on the remote cliffs of Cornwall, England.

Taming the wild child proves a handful, but Meredith's summer escape gets even more complicated when former British Army Lieutenant Sebastian Pryce, veteran of a bomb-sniffing K-9 squad in Afghanistan, proposes they establish the Barton Hall Canine Obedience Academy and that she join him on the Cornwall Search and Rescue Team. Is their instant attraction an unexpected blessing or the prelude to another heartbreak like the one she left behind in the Rocky Mountains?

Even with an assist from a novice search dog named T-Rex, the odds seem long that three months in the land of Meredith's Cornish ancestors can transform her troubled ward into a happier child, heal the wounds suffered by her soldier-turned-rescuer, and save the Barton-Teague estate from pending insolvency.

As a friend of Meredith's confides, "It all sounds like a stretch, but we never rule out miracles."

That Summer in Cornwall ~ a contemporary, stand-alone sequel to Ware's bestselling "time-slip" novel A Cottage by the Sea

I am so excited to have a Cottage by the Sea sequel. I thoroughly enjoyed the first story and it has been wonderful to see what happened to all the characters Ciji Ware made me fall in love with. I always enjoy Ciji's books...she brings a sense of history, and good old fashioned drama to her characters lives. I usually wait for vacation to read her books as I get immersed but I may have to make an exception.. The wait is over. Yippee!

Woohoo, finally, the wait is over! I loved Cottage by the Sea and can't wait to read That Summer in Cornwall. Ciji is a superb storyteller who weaves interesting historical facts into all of her novels. She always writes compelling page-turners, so I'm sure this one won't be any different. Ciji does a great job of creating engaging characters, engrossing plots, and entertaining dialogue.

Loved thus book!!!!

This book is light reading for when you are just relaxing. The characters were pretty one dimensional and the situation of being in England to get help for a Motherless child who had essentially been abandonded by her father was just a vehicle for the main character's romance. The poor girl just got passed on to another relative.
