Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Laurel Rowan is determined to find her estranged grandmother. She wants answers to some questions she has after her visit to Cornwall, especially why her father is so angry with Gramma Bella. The use of dialogue within Go Gently (The Cornwall Adventures Book 3) by Nancy M. Bell is nicely done. A lot of fantasy books tend to spend pages and pages talking about the world and the people and the setting, but forget to keep the characters interacting with one another in real time. This book had plenty of character interaction and conversation that I found refreshing and kept me in the story. I prefer contemporary stories to fantasy stories and sometimes have a hard time with the fantasy elements of these kinds of books, but Go Gently opened and read like a contemporary novel, which was something I really appreciated. At first, the world and everything in it was normal and I felt like this gave me a chance to get acquainted with the characters and want to root for them in their journey to find Gramma. Instead of jumping into a straight description of the world, I was able to learn about the characters and really connect with them, which worked to make me more interested in their wants and needs later in the story. I also appreciated the various settings of this story. The story spans different countries and different sets of characters which kept the reading fresh for me. The varied settings and different love interests made me want to keep reading to find out what happens next. I was never bored because the settings were always changing and always fresh.
