I’m so pleased to be involved in the blogtour promoting and celebrating the launch of Rebecca Raisin’s final instalment in The Cedarwood Lodge trilogy.  Cedarwood Lodge has been such a treat.  I’m now feeling quite hungover with book love for the friends I’ve grown to love at Cedarwood Lodge.  I do hope Rebecca Raisin will revisit Cedarwood Lodge in the future.  I could happily read the whole series back to back again!

We rejoin Clio and her friends and family at Christmas, just after their first major wedding expo at the lodge.  With the excitement of the prospect of new events planning for the new year the gang can now relax a little and enjoy Christmas.  Until Tim, an old school friend of Clio’s, throws a party opportunity their way which is too good an offer to refuse.  One week to plan a major New Year’s Eve party for a big business.  Clio and Amory are already excited and are busy scribbling down ideas but with the boss of the firm making last minute changes the team at Cedarwood Lodge have lots to do.

Kai, the Australian builder who has caught Clio’s eye, is still on site finishing off work.  The relationship between Clio and Kai is so lovely.  They are both sensitive souls with background heartache between them.  Can Clio trust her heart and break down her barriers to let love in?  Or will it be too late with Kai with his family and other work commitments elsewhere?

The secrets of Cedarwood Lodge slowly start unravelling in this book and for someone it is such a heart breaking moment for them to reach out to others and let them understand this heartache.

Cedarwood Lodge, I can see from the words on the page, is a remarkable place that needs to let people in to share it’s beauty.  It just needed some like minded folk to refresh the bones of the place and bring some magic and love to the community that live, work and visit the lodge.  A gorgeous read 5/5*

I absolutely adored revisiting Cedarwood Lodge with Rebecca Raisin. Brides and
Bouquets is the second instalment in the new trilogy by Rebecca Raisin set on Clio
moving back to her hometown Evergreen and purchasing Cedarwood Lodge,
renovating and refurbishing it back to life.
We find Clio, joined by her best friend from New York Amory, preparing the lodge for
Christmas and their first wedding expo. The Lodge and grounds are now beautifully
restored and it sounds so idyllic with the mountainous backdrop. Snow has arrived in
Evergreen making the preparations even more beautiful and realistic.
Clio is still concerned about the secrets the Lodge holds and her mom being part of
them. The townsfolk are very guarded about the secret but Clio makes a startling
discovery and doesn’t know were this discovery will lead to and what it will do to the
already frosty relationship with her mom.
Amongst all this history Cedarwood Lodge is casting its spell in the present with love
blooming and possibly blossoming for the characters we’ve grown to love.  Rebecca
has left us with a cliff-hanger and I can’t wait for book 3.   A wonderful heart-warming
story that will leave you wanting more.  5/5*
I’d like to share one of my favourite quotes from the book:

Product Details (as per amazon page)

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?

Celebrations & Confetti is the first instalment in the new Cedarwood Lodge series written by Rebecca Raisin.

I’ve always loved Rebecca Raisin’s style of writing especially how she draws you into the setting of the novel.  I totally could see myself walking into Cedarwood Lodge and could imagine the before and after in the renovations that new owner Clio had in mind.  Clio has been recently working in New York as a wedding planner but she is now back in her hometown of Evergreen after purchasing Cedarwood Lodge.  The Lodge has been left empty for years and is looking a little tired but Clio has plans to turn it into the best lodge around to host all matters of events.  Clio remembers the Lodge when she was a child playing in the grounds and the location of the lodge is just perfect with it’s vast gardens overlooking the mountains.

The Lodge however, holds many secrets and Clio discovers that her own mother is privy to one of these secrets.  Clio also has her own secret and she is holding back about the real reason she left the city.

With the renovations in full swing and the first booking for the lodge in place Clio’s life is full on.  No time for romance but love is blossoming for someone at the lodge.

This was such a wonderful, heart warming story and a great introduction to a new series.  I was totally swept away with Clio and her dreams.  I’m looking forward to more from Cedarwood Lodge and am intrigued to find out if the new renovated walls will reveal their secrets and whether cupid will cast it’s spell.  5/5*
