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

Art, Castles, Love and Spring - what is not to love !
I knew I would love this book as soon as Rachel’s Random Resources invited me to join the Blog tour. Thank you Rachel for the gifted copy of the book in return for a fair and honest review.
I instantly liked the characters and empathised with Lucie with the loss of her father and his hidden past. I quickly felt part of the family at Bluebell Castle and I loved the strong relationship between the siblings as one of three children I could resonate with this. I really hoped that Arthur and his family found a solution to their financial issues as they were a very likeable bunch.
I loved how the story developed and particularly the mystery of Eudora and Thomas which gave the book an extra dimension and I love the Pre-Raphelite connection as they are a particular favourite of mine. It was a lovely joyful and comforting read that I enjoyed from beginning to end, and I didn’t want it to finish.
I will be looking out for the follow on books to find out more about the Ludworths and Bluebell Castle and what happens next ……..
