After two wonderful but challenging years,Tessa Hainsworth is no longer the outsider from London and is finally becoming accepted into her tight-knit Cornish village community.But everyday life for Tessa is not like the holiday posters.Incomers have to tread carefully - if they don't,the village soon lets them know and Tessa finds herself torn between old friends and new.Making ends meet is still a constant struggle and,like many in the country,she decides to rent out her home to summer holidaymakers - and help run a B&B - with hilarious results.Tessa finds that her job as a postwoman involves being an amateur health-and- safety inspector,a shoulder to cry on and a matchmaker,but there's always time for a sandwich in the sun and a bit of beachcombing in her lunch break.See also my book ID rja467614 for another UK,8vo HB+ dw/dj,1st edn - 'Seagulls in the Attic'.
