This is the first book in the Cedarwood Lodge series of which is a little over a 100 pages long, so didn’t take long to devour at all.

I fell in love with the Lodge as much as Clio. You can’t help but feel and see everything she does when it comes to renovating it. I was as excited to see it get completed and see it in all it’s glory. The fact that it has some history also really appeals.

There was so much to like about this book. There is romance, friendship as well as intrigue that will ensure t

She has bought Cedarwood Lodge, where all her childhood memories lay. It has been abandoned for a whille now and needs lots of work doing to restore it to its former self.

Clio left her job as a wedding planner in New York and returned to Evergreen, where she bought an old lodge. She's renovating the old lodge and is also planning a 50th wedding anniversary party for Edgar and Imelda. There's only six weeks until the party, but thankfully she has some amazing helpers-an old friend Micah, a gardener Isla and a work manager Kai. The lodge renovation goes well and even if there're some problems, they can overcome it together, but what worries Clio is her mother's ant ...more

Originally reviewed on Becca's Books.

Oh, what a wonderful beginning to what feels like a gorgeous new series from Rebecca Raisin. Utterly delightful and completely charming, I could have stepped right into this story and lent a helping hand to Clio and the rest of the team in the up-doing of Cedarwood Lodge. As is always the case with Raisin's novels, Celebrations and Confetti was infused with warmth and heart. It was a steamy mug of sweet and delicious hot chocolate to warm you up from the insi

Having read two stories by Rebecca Raisin, I was very excited for her new book. The bright colour of the cover and the prospect of an another light-hearted book lured me into it. CELEBRATIONS & CONFETTI is the first of three books in AT CEDARWOOD LODGE series.

When Clio's career as a successful event planner in New York takes a fall, she returns home to Evergreen, with an another plan for her future ahead. She buys the old, dilapidated Cedarwood Lodge, planning to renovate it, while mai

Celebrations & Confetti is the first instalment in the new Cedarwood Lodge series written by Rebecca Raisin.

I’ve always loved Rebecca Raisin’s style of writing especially how she draws you into the setting of the novel. I totally could see myself walking into Cedarwood Lodge and could imagine the before and after in the renovations that new owner Clio had in mind. Clio has been recently working in New York as a wedding planner but she is now back in her hometown of Evergreen after purchasing Ced

I voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this story thanks to TBC, Netgalley and the author herself. Wow what a great start for this three part series, brilliant!

If you are looking to get away (in your mind) this is the perfect story for you which will take you into the cute little town of Evergreen.

We get to know who is who in this wonderful tale of drama with twists and turns. Its a feel good,quick read with some likeable characters and the adorable village life I love in books. Rebecca always writes books where I feel I am actually one of the villagers looking in. So pull up a chair and join me in CELEBRATIONS and CONFETTI at CEDARWOOD LODGE, its a wonderful place to be.

This is a nice beginning to a new series. But be warned that this is a novella and we get a lot of information packed into a short story.

Set in a town called Evergreen, heroine Clio Winters returns home to turn Cedarwood Lodge into a vacation and event destination location. She left her job in New York for reasons she really doesn't want to broadcast. Right away several storylines begin to play out. There is mother/daughter conflict, friendship, more than one could-be romance, and lots of infor

Nobody can ever read Rebecca Raisin’s books and fail to come out with a smile of their face. Her books have that special sparkle that puts a twinkle in your eye and for the more jaded, redeems faith in the goodness of people. I was intrigued to start a new series, set at the beautiful but decaying Cedarwood Lodge. All the characters are new, but they will become good friends.

I haven’t read a book of Rebecca’s that I didn’t like, ever. Celebrations & Confetti is no exception. However, I would never use the word ‘like’ to describe my feelings of this book because I’m afraid to say, I didn’t like it…..
I haven’t finished…..
It’s true, I didn’t like it because I absolutely, one hundred percent….LOVED IT! Although, I don’t think ‘love’ is even strong enough to describe my thoughts! Celebrati

This is an impressive start to the Cedarwood Lodge series, as part one of three, we get a really good introduction to the the Lodge and its renovations, and what appears to be the team in charge of putting everything together.

We have Clio Winters, the new owner of the lodge, and is returning to Evergreen in a blaze of hidden controversy based on how her last job in New York ended. Her mother doesn't seem to keen on Clio owning Cedarwood Lodge, but it looks like this will be an ongoing

So when Cedarwood Lodge in Evergreen, an abandoned lodge that had always been in Clio's heart, comes up from sale, she buys it without thinking. And ...more
This book has all the ingredients that make an enjoyable chick lit read, only it seems to be missing some vital ingredient.

Clio, our heroine, returns to her hometown of Evergreen where she buys the rundown lodge of the title. It’s not really a tree change, but more of the cliched 'had to get out of the city due to a misunderstanding' with her previous highly paid position. A scandal that is apparently still being splashed around the city’s newspapers and social media circles and yet, even thoug

I do enjoy books by Rebecca so once I knew there was a new series I was keen to find out what was happening this time. Especially with Christmas looming it certainly had potential.

Celebrations and Confetti is the first novella length part. Life in Manhattan hasn't materialised quite how Clio desired. She is a wedding planner used to dealing with the stars but when she gives her opinion to one bridegroom it backfires and she leaves under a cloud of scandal.

After reading “Rosie’s Traveling Tea Shop” by this same author I was ready to dive into more of her magic.

While I liked Clio and Kai and Micah and Isla, I didn’t Love them. I didn’t connect with them. Her return to her hometown to buy the abandoned lodge after a serious mistake in NYC was nice. The team of friends that she gathered around her to make her lodge dreams happen we’re all nice. But nice wasn’t

I have read several of Rebecca Raisins books and they have never disappointed me. This one is no exception. Drawn in by the gorgeous cover, I downloaded this book and savored it over 3 days although I wanted to keep reading it.
This is a story about coming home after a mishap ends Clio's career in New York as a highly respected event planner. With her tail between her legs, Clio returns home to Evergreen and purchases the run down Cedarwood Lodge where she roamed as a child with her best friend
