Blog Tour -The Cornish Midwife by Jo Bartlett


Welcome to the beautiful seaside town of Port Agnes.

A fresh start…

Midwife Ella Mehenick left the small Cornish town of Port Agnes for London and never looked back. But when her seemingly perfect life crashes down around her, there’s only one place she can heal her battered heart - the place she once called home.

A new arrival…

Ella is quickly welcomed into the small community midwife team and loves her new job caring for mums and their precious babies – it’s what she does best! But being back also means facing ex-flame Dan Ferguson…the first man to break her heart.

A second chance at love?

Dan is still as gorgeous as ever, but he’s never forgiven Ella for leaving. And now she’s back it’s clear that there is unfinished business between them. As Ella settles into her new/old life, she can’t stop the memories of how she once loved Dan so completely – and maybe never stopped.

Maybe coming home to Cornwall is Ella's chance to love again…

I love a bit of drama in a story and there's lots of it in this one! My favourite bits - apart from the romantic suspense, of course - were the midwifery bits. Reading about pregnant women and their labours from the medical side was fascinating, and a real treat. There was some other tension too, both on the romantic side of things and in Ella's day-to- day life, which kept me glued to the pages.

This is a lovely story, with a lovely setting, a wonderful sense of community, and a character with possibly one of the most important jobs in the world. Oh, and the romance is pretty darned special, too.

About the Author

I've made up stories for as long as I can remember, but never really took it any further. Concentrating on my career and family, writing went on the back burner until a catalyst called cancer gave me a major kick up the proverbial. I decided I was going to write that novel after all.

Since having my debut novel published in 2015, things have happened quite quickly and I have recently released my eighteenth novel. I've been able to fulfil a childhood dream of walking into WHSmiths and buying a book with my name on it and all eighteen of my books have been bestsellers in at least one Amazon chart. I write contemporary women's fiction, with a focus on love, friendship, family and community, when I'm not knee deep in assignments at the university where I still teach part-time.

I was born a stone's throw from the English Channel and I still live near the sea in Kent, with my own family - so close to the South East edge of England that we're very nearly French.

Having recently signed a multi-book deal with my incredible publisher, my ambition to drink tea and make stuff up on a full-time basis is ever closer. If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or my author page on Facebook, I might even say something interesting one of these days... although I wouldn't hold your breath!
