This book did not fit any of my challenge criteria.
Disclaimer: I was sent a copy of this book by the publisher as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review. This has in no way affected my opinion of the book, nor the outcome of this review.
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?
What I liked:
This was the first of a new Cedar Lodge series, and I’m definitely intrigued for the next instalments.
It’s a novella, so it’s a very fast and light read. It’s perfect to for sitting by the fire with tea.
What I didn’t like:
I found some phrases popped up quite often, and this did grate on me a little.
It’s quite dialogue heavy, and some of the back and forth could have also worked well as straight narration.
Clio was a little meddlesome, and I wasn’t very keen on that side of her.
Out of five:
Four. A really good read, but some reappearance of phrases slightly annoyed me.
