The summer she will never forget…

Time’s running out for Iggy Ludworth to restore the wild gardens of Camland Castle in time for the Summer Fete, so she ropes in hotshot gardener Will Talbot…

But she regrets her decision as soon as he sets foot in the historic grounds – not only is Will arrogant and bossy, he’s totally gorgeous!

And very soon, sparks are flying amongst the bluebells. Yet with summer nearly over, will their summer fling convince Will and Iggy to go the distance?

Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.

My Thoughts

I’m a huge fan of Sarah’s Butterfly Cove and Lavender Bay series’ and I fell in love with Bluebell Castle after reading Spring Skies Over Bluebell Castle.  So, I was so excited to return, this time to hear Iggy’s story and to find out if she could find her own love.

Trying to restore their home (which just happens to be a castle) and it’s grounds in order to financially keep from selling it, Iggy, Tristan and Arthur want to open their gardens and home to the public.  Iggy, the estate manager, is in charge of the gardens but begins to fear she has bitten off more than she can chew.  Enter Will – famous gardener and bad boy.  Can Iggy and Will put aside their differences and work together to prepare the gardens in time? And will they ever reveal their true feelings for each other?

What setting is more romantic than a genuine countryside castle?  Sarah Bennett creates the most normal but perfect settings for her romances and this is no different.  This installment focuses more on the gardens and grounds and despite not have a single green finger, I’m more than happy to indulge in someone else’s gardening skills.                I was fascinated by all the gardening and design part and they were described so perfectly that at times I was standing right in there with Iggy and Will.

When Sarah writes a series, you get a whole host of main characters that bring depth and sparkle to each novel.  This one is no different.  As well as the main story of Iggy and Will, there is also Arthur and his new girlfriend Lucie, Tristan and Uncle Lancelot. Al;l of these characters have different quirks and personalities which really brings the family side of the story to life.

If you are reading a Sarah Bennett novel then you are onto a winner.  She writes brilliant uplifting and feel good romances every time and you cannot fail to fall in love with her characters and settings.
