Celebrations & Confetti – Rebecca Raisin ✶✶✶✶✶


Part one in a feel-good festive romantic serial from bestselling author Rebecca Raisin!
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?

I voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this story thanks to TBC, Netgalley and the author herself. Wow what a great start for this three part series, brilliant! I already cannot wait to read the next two stories that will follow. If you are looking to get away (in your mind) this is the perfect story for you which will take you into the cute little town of Evergreen. I always find Rebecca’s books calm me down and take me to somewhere beautiful and she did not disappoint this time either. I would highly recommend all her books to you. It was a beautifully written short story (129 pages). You can really tell Rebecca loves what she does (writing). The setting was perfect and so were the characters I want/NEED to know what happen at Cedarwood Lodge, hurry up Rebecca! Well worth the five stars I have awarded.

This is the perfect book for readers who enjoy a brilliant short story, romance, contemporary and chick-lit filled plot. It will warm your heart. Enjoy, I did. I loved it.

The Little Antique shop under the Eiffel Tower – Rebecca Raisin ✶✶✶✶✶

little antique shop

Anouk LaRue used to be a romantic, but since she had her heart well and truly broken her love life has dissolved into nothing more than daydreams of the perfect man. Retreating to her extraordinary Little Antique Shop has always been a way to escape, because who could feel alone in a shop bursting with memories and beautiful objects…
Until Tristan Black bursts into an auction and throws her ordered world into a spin.Following your heart is a little like getting lost in Paris – sometimes confusing and always exciting! Except learning to trust her instincts is not something Anouk is ready to do when it comes to romance, but the city of love has other ideas…

Thanks to TBC and Rebecca for letting me review a copy of this excellent book! I have only recently found this author and already read two of her stories. She writes beautifully and her stories are lovely to read. The is the second book in her series but I read this as a standalone as I did with her other story (Secrets at Maple Syrup Farm) and still enjoyed them. Yet again I felt right at home in this story and welcomed by the characters. You can really spot Rebecca’s love of writing within her stories which I cannot spot in other authors stories. The scene is set beautifully, the characters are perfect, the location is a dream come true. Whats not to love? I really enjoyed reading this story and cannot wait to dive into more stories by Rebecca. I would highly recommend this story to you all! It was nice to have a change from thrillers for once.. Excellent story. Loved it.

This is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a fantastic chick-lit, contemporary and romance filled story. Fancy going on a holiday in your mind with a bit of drama? This is the perfect story for you. Enjoy, I did. This will be one I will miss.

secrets at the maple syrup farm

After her mum got sick, Lucy dropped everything to take care of her, working all hours in a diner and spending every spare moment beside her mothers bed. Now, Lucy is faced with a whole year of living on her own, starting by taking the first bus out of town to anywhere…
Never expecting she would find her next big adventure just around the corner in Ashford! On her first day in town she goes looking for a job, which leads her to the grumpy, but delicious Clay at the maple syrup farm…
Lucy has the chance to change forever and finally discovers a life she wants to live!

I absolutely loved this story and I think it would make a lovely film! It ended quite suddenly for me personally, only because I wanted more. I awarded five stars as I really enjoyed it and it was easy to devour. I fell in love with the town and the characters! It is written beautifully and I would highly recommend it to you all. However, I am warning you that you will also fall in love with the town, especially the gingerbread cafe (hmm). This is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a wonderful contemporary, chick-lit, adventure and romance filled story! Enjoy, I did. I will miss the cute little town, cafe and characters.
