Part one in a feel-good 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?

Cedarwood Lodge is a delectable romance told in three parts - following Clio Winters journey back to her hometown of Evergreen. This is Part One.

Oh where to start with this absolutely delicious read! Firstly I read this book in a single day because I could not and did not want to put it down! Rebecca is an exceptionally talented writer who is always so dedicated and loyal to her readers, and I know this because I've read every single one of her books and she NEVER fails to deliver.

She has this delicious talent to entice you into the story so much that I find myself not only wanting to be a part of the story and it's setting, but there are moments where you stop in your day and think about the characters, pondering how they are. They become a part of your life, and that is a seriously magical talent.

Celebrations & Confetti reeled me in from the very first page - in the first few sentences I was hooked and I'd fallen under the spell of Cedarwood Lodge. I was plotting renovation ideas upon reading that first page, and from there, I was transported to Evergreen as I got to know more about Clio, and what had brought her home. The description just made me want to live there.

Clio has returned from the bright lights of New York, and she's bought a run down lodge that has been vacant and gathering dust since her childhood. She has a lovely friend from her childhood days who is just one of those friends for life kind of guys who had his heart broken. Unaware of the scandal Clio has left behind, she has to hire a whole team to help her get the Lodge up and running for business. So, there's the project manager - Kai, who I imagine to be as deliciously handsome and muscular as I read he is, and then there is the gardener/landscaper who tackles the entire grounds single handedly. They are the main characters and sparks fly between them and makes their still hearts beat.

Clio's Mum is hiding something regarding her reservations around Cedarwood Lodge, and her Aunt knows about but won't reveal the secret. Hmmmm.

I can't not mention the beautiful couple who are the first clients of Clio's for hiring Cedarwood Lodge to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary, I sense a hint of sadness awaiting us in the future books - Rebecca, please don't make me cry too much! The whole story of this couple is unbelievably moving, and it's a shame that disaster could strike and ruin their special day.

What I will say is that Clio's friend Amory from New York, is totally spot on with her timing - ahem - especially when Clio is gazing up at the stars with a special hunk.

Oh Rebecca, you have me hooked - I'm ready and waiting for book 2! Bring it on! I can't wait to read what happens next!
