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…
Living in a castle must be like a dream come true, right? Well, wrong. Often castles are money eating things and dreams are often turned into nightmares thanks to decisions made by previous heirs.
As much as I hate to burst your bubble, living in a castle is not a bed of roses or should I say bluebells? 😉 But sometimes you only need that one stroke of luck to turn everything around.
When you see the cover, you just wish you could be teleported there. It shouts romance and that’s indeed one of the things you will get. Besides you will also be amused by the little jokes and funny situations and a bit teary-eyed at times as well.
The author stole my heart by making the Ludworth family such a big dog lovers. I would not mind living there surrounded by all those furry treasures.
It’s a fluently written, very enjoyable story and in my opinion a superb start of a new series. I, for sure, can hardly wait to pack my bags and return to Bluebell Castle. 4 stars.
