She wasn’t looking for love…
When Lucie Kennington flees the bright lights of London for the quiet Derbyshire countryside, she’s shocked to discover that the heir to the Bluebell Castle estate is far from the wizened employer she expected.
In fact, Arthur Ludworth might just be the most handsome man Lucie’s ever laid eyes on – and a terrible distraction! So when she stumbles across a legendary painting feared lost for centuries, she can’t believe her luck – perhaps this is the hidden treasure to save Arthur and his family from ruin?
But it’s only a matter of time before Lucie’s past catches up with her and by then it’s too late, she’s falling for him…
Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.
Book 1: Spring Skies Over Bluebell Castle
Book 2: Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle
Book 3: Starlight Over Bluebell Castle
Lucie is a lady whose past she can’t seem to out run. No matter where she goes she is always reminded of it and struggles to escape it. Bluebell Castle seems to be the perfect opportunity to start a fresh though.
I loved the history of Bluebell Castle. At times it felt like I was in another era with characters names like Arthur and Lancelot. I was almost waiting for the knights of the round table to turn up! I think it makes this story almost magical at times and was certainly spellbinding as I was engrossed in finding out more about the estate and characters.
There is a little bit of mystery in the story and the blossoming romance between Lucie and Arthur was a joy to read. It certainly makes you feel all warm and tingly inside.
Spring Skies Over Bluebell Castle is an enjoyable story to lose yourself into. Great to see that this is just the first in a series of books featuring Bluebell Castle, of which I hope to see lots more of Lucie and Arthur also. A heartwarming and light hearted read.
