The blurb . . .
Clio Winters is finally fulfilling her childhood dream of renovating the gorgeous old Cedarwood Lodge in Evergreen. Turning it into the perfect destination for big celebrations, weddings and parties has brought her back home, but Cedarwood Lodge is in need of a lot of tender loving care.
Perhaps all the work will be the perfect distraction from the real reason she had to leave her glamorous New York life behind.
Will coming home be the best decision of her life… or her biggest regret?
Cedarwood Lodge is a delectable romance told in three parts – following Clio Winters journey back to her hometown of Evergreen. This is Part One.
My thoughts . . .
As a crime/psychological thriller reader, every so often I decide to read a romance/chick lit book to cleanse my palette and I am so glad I chose this as one of them!!!
Celebrations and Confetti At Cedarwood Lodge is the first in what I hope will be a very long series of really great, easy reads.
When Clio Winters, a New York wedding planner, is almost run out of town forced to return to the sleepy town she grew up in, she decides this will not be the end of her career, and instead of letting it get her down, she buys a mansion. A derelict, run down, falling apart mansion.
Like you do eh?
As the renovation starts, so do the problems (did you really expect it to be a smooth ride for her!?) but, Clio is surrounded by hunky builders, so all is not lost – the scenery is great!
As she gets her first booking for an anniversary party can Clio ensure that the old mansion is back to it’s previous glory in time to make the dreams of an elderly couple come true? I’m not telling you, you’ll have to go and read it! And trust me, you want to read it! It’s lovely, it’s funny’, it’s absolutely perfect for curling up on a miserable day and devouring all at once, but best of all . . .
It’s only just beginning!
