Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Spring Skies over Bluebell Castle
This is a lovely, contemporary story with nobility, mystery, suspense and romance interwoven into a delightful book to escape into. It also has historical elements as the diaries of ancestors and artefacts and works of art they purchased are important elements in the events as they search for valuables that might help fund the restoration and maintenance of the castle.
Lucie Kennington is an art specialist at an auction house and loves her job. She’s made an amazing discovery but when it is replaced by a fake, this leads to accusations, suspension and the suggestion that she’s emulating her father.
Disheartened, Lucie’s Mum convinces her to apply for a two month post evaluating the contents of Bluebell Castle in Derbyshire. It is there that she meets the Ludworth triplets – Arthur, Tristan and Igraine (who prefers to be known as Iggy). When you learn that their Uncle is Lancelot you’ll probably gather there’s a family fascination with the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table . . . . they even have their own Round Table in the main Hall as well as other artefacts relating to the legend!
This is a story where unwary investors have suffered but so have the family of the both the victims and the perpetrator. With wrongful accusations, secrets, mysteries and romance this is a beautiful, engaging start to this series and I look forward to reading the next two books in this series to hopefully discover what lies in store for the triplets and Bluebell Castle in future!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
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.
