Best Books Set in Cornwall

These books are all set in Cornwall at least in part.... and are all well worth reading. I've read them all (almost....) and will be reading them all again and again...
The books are in no particular order.... I'm sure there are others; any thoughts anyone?

Christina Thank you for this great list! I'd add "The Long Weekend" by Veronica Henry. A modern romance, set in Cornwall at a boutique hotel by the sea, which tells the stories of the proprietors and various guests over a bank holiday weekend.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's easy to add books to lists; at the top of the list, at the tab next to "all votes."


message 3: by Maruca (new)

Maruca Fantastic list, I am off to Cornwall on Saturday and this has given me some great ideas! I'd add D.M. Mitchell's "The House of the wicked".


message 4: by Laura (new)

Laura Summer in February?


message 5: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca Goes The Wheel of Fortune

How does one fall in love with a country? By reading Susan Howatch or Rosamunde Pilcher.. " Wheel of Fortune 's got me hooked from the first to the last page. What strikes me, is there is often question of " coming home" in Cornwall novels.....


message 6: by Dave (new)

Dave Fahey Hi All, I'm trying to track down a children's novel, written in the 60s, about four children flying to the Scillies for the summer. Unfortunately, I don't have a title or author, but, hopefully, this will strike a chord with someone.
Thanks in advance.
Dave Fahey


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Have you tried the group What's the name of that book?

Must admit to never having heard of the group, I'll give them a try. Thanks for the lead.


message 9: by Heidi (new)

Heidi The Death of Mrs. Westaway, by bestselling author Ruth Ware, takes place in Cornwall.


message 10: by Heidi (new)

Heidi Also, part of "Death Below stairs" by Jennifer Ashley.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I hope you've added them, then.
