Celebrations and Confetti by Rebecca Raisin


Get ready for Christmas with the first part in a feel-good romance serial from best selling 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.


Described as hilarious and feel good - unfortunately I found it neither. There wasn't one sentence which raised a smile, let alone a laugh, and the end of the book is very much up in the air (ready for the next in the series) and with hardly anything resolved, therefore the 'feel good' factor was sadly missing.

To me the book seemed quite short (I estimated it around thirty thousand words, so more of a novelette than a novel), slightly rushed, and a little removed from the action. For example, the MC was absent for a crucial scene and I felt so much more could have been made of it. I actually felt that way about the whole novel and it didn't grip me in the way the Antique Shop did.
