Book Review - Celebrations & Confetti At Cedarwood Lodge by Rebecca Raisin

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads
 
Review by Suze
 
Clio is back in her hometown, Evergreen. She used to have a successful career in New York, but everything she worked hard for has been taken away and she needs a fresh start. That's why she's bought Cedarwood Lodge. She wants to bring it back to its former glory and would like to make it a perfect venue for parties. Weddings are her specialty and while she loves planning romantic days for others, Clio hasn't found her own mister right yet. The lodge needs a lot of work, but fortunately Clio isn't on her own. She has the chance to work with her best friend Micah and the gorgeous temporary project manager Kai. Will Clio be able to leave her past behind and will Cedarwood Lodge bring her happy times again after everything she went through in New York?
 
Celebrations & Confetti At Cedarwood Lodge is a wonderful story about a beautiful lodge, family secrets and true love. I immediately loved Clio. She's kindhearted, determined, brave and talented. Clio has been through a lot, but that doesn't prevent her from going on with her life and finding a new challenge, which is an admirable quality. Her project is interesting and I loved reading about the progress she makes at Cedarwood Lodge. It's a brilliant location with plenty of potential and I enjoyed reading about Clio's plans very much.
 
Rebecca Raisin always writes about settings that make me curious. Evergreen is inviting, it's a town that put a big smile on my face because of its special vibe. It's warm and welcoming and the inhabitants are all fascinating. Clio didn't think she'd ever return, but the town suits her and that makes her story even more fun. At such a romantic location it's impossible not to fall in love, which is something I loved about this book. The family secret intrigues me as well and I can't wait to read more about it. Celebrations & Confetti At Cedarwood Lodge is lovely and heartwarming. Every character is fabulous and I liked everything about this first At Cedarwood Lodge story.
 
Advice
