Book Review: Hopeful Hearts at the Cornish Cove by Kim Nash

I am so excited to be welcoming Kim Nash to Novel Kicks and the blog tour for her new book, Hopeful Hearts at the Cornish Cove.

A perfect new start in Cornwall…

Meredith’s life is at a standstill. She’s stuck in a dead-end job, approaching fifty, and her dating life is a string of disasters. But one evening, while browsing the internet, she sees an ad for a lighthouse, and in a moment of impulsiveness, she makes a ridiculous bid for it.

With the help of local handyman Clem, she sets about renovating. And as they work together, a bond begins to form. But when Meredith finds out that Clem is keeping a secret from her, it changes everything. Will they find a way to build something more meaningful together?


After a drunken evening post divorce, Meredith wakes up to find that she’s bought a lighthouse in the Cornish village of Driftwood Bay. Throwing caution to the wind, she decides to move down to Cornwall. The worst that happens is that she sells the lighthouse.
What she doesn’t count on is a dilapidated lighthouse and a chance encounter with a handsome local.

Can Driftwood Bay be the new start Meredith is looking for?

To say that I immediately fell into this book would be an understatement. It drew me in from page one and Meredith is very easy to root for. She’s so much stronger and braver than she realises. I loved seeing how she developed over the course of the novel.

Clem is also an endearing character with a mysterious air to him. I loved the scenes that he and Meredith shared. Like Vi, I wanted to bang their heads together. Speaking of Vi, she, as well as Gabby, Lucy, James and Gemma are wonderful supporting characters.
