#BlogTour Spring Skies over Bluebell Castle by Sarah Bennett


Today it's my turn on the BlogTour Spring Skies over Bluebell Castle and it's also Publication Day! It's a fun, warm-hearted and light read.


About the Author
Sarah Bennett has been reading for as long as she can remember. Raised in a family of bookworms, her love affair with books of all genres has culminated in the ultimate Happy Ever After – getting to write her own stories to share with others.

Born and raised in a military family, she is happily married to her own Officer (who is sometimes even A Gentleman). Home is wherever he lays his hat, and life has taught them both that the best family is the one you create from friends as well as relatives.

When not reading or writing, Sarah is a devotee of afternoon naps and sailing the high seas, but only on vessels large enough to accommodate a casino and a choice of restaurants. Sarah is the author of the Butterfly Cove, Lavender Bay and the forthcoming Bluebell Castle trilogies, published by HQ Digital UK.



About the book
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…

Review
This is the first book in the Bluebell Castle Series, book two - Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle and book three - Starlight over Bluebell Castle are out in July and November of this year.

Quite a few generations of the Ludworth family have been named after characters from the Arthurian legend and the castle is filled with objects that are connected to this obsession. The upper echelon do have a reputation for being slightly eccentric, so I guess this is to be expected.

When I had my first child I scoured through the complete works of Shakespeare for names, so I can totally get on board with Arthurian names. Perhaps not much fun for the child in question, but when you end up a Sir Arthur, as is the case in this family, then it's worth the odd Uther, Morgana or even Pendragon.

The Ludworth family is struggling to keep the family castle and grounds afloat, so they decide to get an art expert and historian to go through their vast collection to see if there is anything valuable they can sell to save their family home.

Lucie Kennington is at a loose end after becoming unemployed unexpectedly. Her troubled and dark past is following her around like a bad smell and it might just be a question of time until it follows her all the way to the halls of Bluebell Castle.

She doesn't expect to find not one but two handsome men or a castle full of rescue dogs for that matter. It's also fair to say that her reaction to the bouncy, yappy and often mud covered mutts is fairly important to at least one of the men.

It's a fun, warm-hearted and light read. A feel good read that doesn't ask you to try and out-think the plot or dive into emotional upheaval. It just represents few hours of pleasant relaxation. By the way I want an invite, so I can explore the castle and secret tunnels. Just Saying.
