Midnight and Mistletoe At Cedarwood Lodge
Planning a New Years Eve Party might be the kind of event Clio Winters used to dream about organising, but when everything is feeling a bit up in the air, she has to hope that this New Years her wish really will come true.
Cedarwood Lodge is a delectable romance told in three parts – fol...more
An emotionally stunning, but delightful conclusion to this romantic holiday e series!
This last installment in the Cedarwood Lodge e-series brings friends and family together for the holidays and finally resolves the age- old mystery of why Clio’s mom has such strong feelings about Cedarwood Lodge and explains why she held back from forging a solid relationship with her daughter. Warning… this storyline will require a box of tissu ...more

In the last part of the story, Clio and the gang are gearing up for a party centered around Christmas Day and the New Year. I really loved Armory's storyline and how things will now change for her and Aunt Bessie was just a delight and an added bonus. Again great descriptions of the lodge and its int ...more

Events management is what Clio Winters does best and even though she had escaped the hustle and bustle of city life for the tranquility of her home town Evergreen, when she finds herself having to organize a New Year’s Eve party at Cedarwood Lodge, she cannot help but be a bit frazzle ...more
I found it hard to connect with the main characters in the book and there was not enough tension built up romantically between the two main characters to make you want them to desperately fall in love and have their happily ever after. I felt like we didn't really get to know Clio's love interest Kai really well but could see the potential for you t ...more
I loved the way Clio and her mum managed to get back together - it was a real tear-jerker!
Thank you Rebecca for a lovely series.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Midnight and Mistletoe is sweet as Christmas sugar cookies and certainly excels at getting readers into the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, there just wasn't enough of it for me. This book was very short, and just didn't manage to build enough tension either romantically or throughout the plot for me to really get into this book. Any potential problem that Clio Winters faces is easily and very quickly resolved, and there just wasn't enough buildup or emotional turmoil leading ...more
We rejoin Clio and her friends and family at Christmas, just after their first major wedding expo at the lodge. With the excitement of the prospect of new events planning for the new year the gang can now relax a little and enjoy Chri ...more
Can't believe that we are on the third and final part of the series, already! I have really enjoyed following Clio's life and watching her grow before my very eyes with the previous books. I was rather hopeful that 'Midnight and Mistletoe' would follow suit.
For Clio, there has always been 'something' up in the air when it came to her relationship with her mum. What that was though, Clio had absolutely no idea. Her mum ...more

Time has moved on, the lives of the occupants are all falling into place nicely except for poor Clio, she eats, sleeps, dreams love and weddings but the happiness of her friends relationships seem to elude her.
This book takes in Christmas Day and New Year so it is absolutely ide ...more
This is the last part of the Cedarwood Lodge story and is set at Christmas and New Year. If you haven't read the other two parts I would highly recommend it so you know what's going on. We finally find out what the mystery is surrounding the hidden maze in the grounds, and the photos Clio's Mum has of a baby (not her).
I don't ...more
It's true, with a good friendship life always looks better! That's what Rebecca Raisin tries to show us in these beautiful trilogy, you can have love, but good friends are difficult to find and you must keep them!
Please, don't read this book alone, it's a trilogy and you will miss ...more
It has been a pleasure to read this series of books. I have enjoyed getting to know the characters but also spending time at Cedarwood Lodge. By the end it actually felt like it was a real place, Rebecca Raisin really brought it to life with her descriptive writing.
All of the characters were well written but my favourite has to be Clio. Her determination to bring Cedarwood Lodge back to life has been a joy to read.
The story has the perfect combination of friendship, romance and new beginnings. E ...more
This is book 3 of Rebecca Raisin’s Cedarwood Lodge series and it all follows Clio Winter.
The staff at the lodge are planning a big NYE party, the mystery from the first part around Clio’s mum finally gets solved and some other questions get answered as well. Of course there is also the romance and love part in this story and I really adored these little scenes.
I had difficulties getting into this story from the start and unfortuna ...more
