A series of five fun feel-good reads set against the delightful backdrop of Corny Cove.
When redundancy forces Henry and Margaret to reassess their lives, they decide to 'live the dream' and move from their home in central England, down south to Cornwall.
Discovering the golden sands and rugged cliffs of Corny Cove, it's love at first sight, and they take on the running of a campsite.
They soon realise, however, that it isn't all plain sailing, and Henry regularly ends up getting into scrapes with a host of bothersome campers such as the brutish Mr Botherham and unruly Mrs Gladstone as well as 'Rusty' Gates, the obnoxious red-bearded farmer next door… And, of course, he does so all under the watchful eye of Margaret.
All in all, life at Corny Cove is both a blessing AND a curse!
Set over the course of a typical British holiday season, Tales from Corny Cove is a series of 5 fun feel-good reads (also available as standalone novelettes).

TALE #2 – FLY IN THE OINTMENT
When a top-notch customer like the retired air marshal turns up on site, it seems that things are looking up.

However, as events unravel, Henry and Margaret discover that appearances aren't quite what they seem.
