The Girl of Lost Petals and Possibilities Series: A Cornish Hotel by the Shore #1
Genres: Womens Fiction
On holiday in Egypt with Sidney and Dean, young writer Maisie is—in her mind—on top of the world. Her long-labored manuscript is finally going to be published, she and Sidney are deeply in love, and the future looks bright on every level.
In one moment, however, it all changes. Tragedy leads to overwhelming loss that Maisie can't even begin to process. As the world itself turns upside down, there's no solace for Maisie from the growing sense that her wonderful future is finished.
No dream about to come true. No certainties of new chances in life.
Even if the first two did not break her, the last one is determined to. It's up to Maisie to find her strength and determination to find a new future, even if—unthinkably—it may be nothing like the one she dreamed of.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. I receive no compensation for reviews.
I didn’t read A Little Hotel in Cornwell which is where Maisie Clark finds her happy ending. So I went into this book knowing nothing about the characters. After reading this though I think I need to go back and read it. You can easily read this one on its own but I felt as though I was missing something having not read it.
This certainly isn’t a romance book and it left me with all sorts of emotions. I will give you a small spoiler…. this book is a bit sad but that being said it is hopeful by the end. This book is more about coming out the other side when life throws the unexpected at you. When everything you thought your future would be is now different.
I loved Maisie as a character and her will to not give up. I’m not sure I wouldn’t have in the same circumstances. She has a strength to her that I enjoyed. All of the other characters were also wonderful. As I said I felt like I was missing something having not read any of the previous series. However, as far as the first book in a series goes this was good. I intend to read the previous series and then more in this one.
