For these four lifelong friends, the sleepy town of Cavanagh, Tennessee—rich in Irish history and diverse culture—is the softest place to fall. Here they forgive and move forward. Here they love fiercely. Here they endure.

Cavanagh - Serenity Series, Vol 1 (Seeking Serenity)

There are 3 books in this series, 2 full length and one novella. That’s a lot of reading for a small price you get for this re-release week bonanza.

Here Declan an ex-pat meets Amber and sparks fly, not the least because of his drunken treatment of her on their first hello. Declan is a smug self-assured a** but Amber’s more than able to take him. Literally, that first

This first volume of the Cavanagh Serenity series will have you staying in town for the long haul. We are first introduced to Autumn and Declan who will have you falling in love with them. Autumn is a strong young woman who has suffered a lot of loss in her life but has managed to come out stronger on the other side. Declan is a sexy Irish rugby player who just can’t stay away from this fiery ginger but a connection they both have but never see coming might just pull them apart. The novella in t ...more

What can I say about this series other than it ranks in my top ten favorite new adult series? I first read this when it was released in 2014 and I still find myself going back and re-reading. It's one of my comfort reads.

In Chasing Serenity, Autumn McShane has some seriously bad things happen to her, at the same time she meets Irish-hottie Declan Fraser. There's no insta-love here, which I loved. It takes a while for Declan to get close, only to potentially lose it all over a very devastating s

Chasing Serenity: Seeking Serenity 1

In Volume One we meet a group of friends who all go to school together and live in this small town in Tennessee. We first meet Autumn who has been through a lot in her life. Autumn is just looking to finish school but things don’t always happen the way we expect them too. Declan is new to the sleepy town and his first meeting with Autumn doesn’t go over well. The more time they spend together Autumn sees that there are more to Declan then she first thought. Declan wants her but there is somethin ...more

Chasing Serenity -- Autumn and Declan must overcome losses and betrayal while falling in love and learning to forgive.

Behind the Pitch -- This one is a quick glimpse of Chasing Serenity from Declan’s POV. I felt like this was a behind the scenes look of what actually happens in a relationship. You know not everything is perfect ALL the time 😉

Finding Serenity -- Molly and Vaughn’s story is full of suspense and danger. The secondary characters add some entertainment to this book.

Chasing Serenity is the first book and it is about Autumn McShane and Declan Fraser. I really liked this one. Declan, the sweet and sexy Irishman and Autumn were great together. I liked the buildup of them getting together. I loved the passion and chemistry between them. I also liked all the secondary characters and the bestie relationship of Autumn and Sayo!

Behind The Pitch, was mostly Declan's point of view from book 1 but there was also new scenes! I liked reading about Declan's thoughts for

Cavanagh Vol 1 features books 1 -2 in one spot. I like this series, and the group of friends who support one another, and more important their family to eachother.

Chasing Serenity #1 is a raw, emotional, love story. The story is well written and heartfelt, and it had a few twists I didn't see coming. The characters were wonderful and well developed. I liked Declan and Autumn. Liked secondary characters too. Great start to the Seeking Serenity series!

Behind the Pitch #1.5 is a great novella, that

Cavanaugh is a small tow. almost anyone would love to live in. Family is important especially if it is the family you choose. Four friends travel through life and love and along the way learn what happiness truly is. I loved that each story didn't make it easy for the characters to have their happily ever after. There were struggles and there were tears. I especially loves Behind the Pitch (The novella) because it allowed the reader to see both sides to Declan and Ambers story. I also likes how ...more

📚I am voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader's copy of this book📚
This is a great set of 2 books plus a novella, from Declan's POV, and the beginning of the Cavanagh Series by Eden Butler. These books focus on Declan and Autumn and Vaughn and Mollie. The characters are very well written, compelling, and have great depth. Although sports plays a part in the story, I don't think you need to be a huge sports fan to enjoy these stories. The books move quickly, the storyline has great flow, and it's

Cavanagh Series Vol 1 is the first 2 books and a novella in the series.

Book 1 follows Autumn and Declan, there constant back and forth and denial of true feelings. It unfortunately just dragged on, rehased a lot of the same stuff and a lot of unnecessary drama.
Book 1.5 is from Declans point of view and I unfortunately skimmed a lot of this as it was pretty much what I had just read.

Book 2 was my favourite, I really enjoyed Mollie and Vaughn, the secrets, the build up and the emotional side.

A great bundle. It’s full of action, suspense and romance. It has characters you will love.

Chasing Serenity
We meet Autumn and Declan. The chemistry and connection between them is sizzling. It’s fast pace and entertaining.

Behind the Pitch
This is a quick read. This is told in Declan’s POV. We get insight on Declan’s feelings.

Finding Serenity
This is Mollie and Vaughn’s story. It’s angsty with some heartbreaking moments. It will hook you with its twists and turns. The chemistry between them is

I was gifted this arc for an honest review

this is my first read by Eden Butler and she knocked it out of the park for me.
based on a group of girl friends and there love interests, it kept me interested through out and had all the feelings flowing through me.

book 1 and 1.5 we have autumn and Declan and through the push and pull of there relationship, these 2 were my favourite couple to read about but ever one was amazing too

book 2 we have Molly and Vaughan and boy do these 2 keep it interesting.

***Transferred reviews from original releases***
Absolutely loved this story. I loved Declan's accent (yes, you can hear it!!), how strong and sassy Autumn is, what brings them together and what tears them apart. Watching Autumn deal with the loss of her mother, and the father who left them, and seeing her strive and pull herself thru (with a little help from some amazing friends) was wonderful! I cannot wait to jump into the next in the series!

And I thought Chasing Serenity would be my favorite
