Note: Charlie has a new helper on her bus, her free-spirited and loveable cousin, Delilah, who's paid a visit to the charming Cornish village of Porthgolow and is helping out on Charlie's adorable cream tea bus. When the Director of a new TV series filming further along the coast tells Delilah that the bus would be the perfect addition to their onsite catering, she takes him a bit too literally. Charlie and Delilah find themselves caught up in the filming of a lavish period drama and it isn't long before Delilah finds herself drawn to the handsome male lead. But Delilah has made a habit of making rash decisions and it's one of the reasons she's hiding out in Cornwall. Could this be one impulsive step too far, or is a change of direction the start of something quite unexpected.

Note: Librarian Thea Rushwood was looking forward to exploring the beautiful Cornish town of Port Karadow with her best friend. But when she is dumped for a better offer, Thea isn't sure if she can survive the three-week holiday on her own. Her holiday doesn't get off to the best start when she arrives at her rented cottage to discover a noisy building site next door, and a grumpy (and handsome!) builder, Ben, in charge. When a series of mishaps and misunderstandings throw Thea and Ben together, she discovers there is more to him - and to the town - than she thought. But when an unexpected visitor arrives, it casts a shadow over her sunny Cornish escape, and threatens to turn it into something else entirely.

Note: Hannah Swan is looking forward to Christmas for the first time in years. Her new job as an eco-consultant is taking her - and her geeky colleague, Noah - to the beautiful Cornish village of Porthgolow for the first time. They're helping the Crystal Waters Hotel to ramp up its green credentials, though after a bumpy journey, Hannah can't shake off the feeling that Porthgolow is strangely familiar. Never able to resist a mystery, her interest is piqued when the hotel's staff and customers report odd noises and sightings, believing the hotel to be haunted. When bad weather cuts off Porthgolow, Hannah and Noah are looking at a Cornish Christmas. It gives them plenty of time to work out what is really going on, but will their yuletide escape send shivers up their spines? Or will it be as warm and toasty as a glass of mulled wine?
