This is a lovely, contemporary story with nobility, mystery, suspense and romance interwoven into a delightful book to escape into. It also has historical elements as the diaries of ancestors and artefacts and works of art they purchased are important elements in the events as they search for valuables that might help fund the restoration and maintenance of the castle. Lucie Kennington is an art specialist at an auction house and loves her job. She's made an amazing discovery but when it is replaced by a fake, this leads to accusations, suspension and the suggestion that she's emulating her father. Disheartened, Lucie's Mum convinces her to apply for a two month post evaluating the contents of Bluebell Castle in Derbyshire. It is there that she meets the Ludworth triplets - Arthur, Tristan and Igraine (who prefers to be known as Iggy). When you learn that their Uncle is Lancelot you'll probably gather there's a family fascination with the stories of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table . . . . they even have their own Round Table in the main Hall as well as other artefacts relating to the legend! This is a story where unwary investors have suffered but so have the family of the both the victims and the perpetrator. With wrongful accusations, secrets, mysteries and romance this is a beautiful, engaging start to this series and I look forward to reading the next two books in this series to hopefully discover what lies in store for the triplets and Bluebell Castle in future!I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Lucie thinks her sojourn in the Derbyshire countryside will be a tonic to what happened to her in London. She wasn't expecting the new Baronet at Bluebell Castle to be dishy. Or that his family would all be named after character in Arthurian legend. The Castle and the family are on the rocks and when Lucie, a curator, finds a painting that might be valuable, there's cause for celebration. These two are cute, as are Arthur's siblings (and the two other triplets), Igraine, and Tristan. The family works and if some of the references get to be a bit much, well it's worth googling the names just for a learning experience. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

“Take the advice of a woman who knows: when you find love, grasp it in both hand and don’t ever let go.” Fancy some British literary fiction? How about interesting characters you will truly bond with, a lovely British landscape, and lots of love? Spring Skies over Bluebell Castle is as happy and entertaining a book as its title and pretty cover suggest. Lucie is a young, professional woman, working in London at her dream job in a prestigious art house. She has overcome a past fraught with major upsets. But, on the day she achieves a major accomplishment at work, everything is ruined. Meanwhile, at a partially ruined castle, Arthur and his brother Tristan and sister Igraine, triplets, are facing their own problems. Their father has passed away and now Arthur as the eldest is the new Baronet. But his “kingdom” mainly consists of beautiful bluebells that bloom every spring, a bunch of odd Camelot pieces, and lots of bills. Fortunately, he has a good heart and a loving family, which also includes his Uncle Lancelot and Great-Aunt Morgana. (Yes, you are right in noticing that the family has a Camelot/King Arthur “thing”.) When Arthur advertises for a curator to come to the castle and inventory the contents, Lucie takes the position and hopes it will be her lifeline. Will it be more than that? Will the spring skies also awaken love? This book will make you smile. If I were at the castle, I would be vying for Arthur’s attention, too! He is a fine fellow. I may still have a chance to win him, as there are two more books planned in this series. Good news- so start reading this book and enjoy your visit to Bluebell Castle. Thanks to the author, NetGalley, the publisher and Rachel’s Random Resources for a review copy. This is my honest review.

Spring Skies Over Bluebell Castle is a fun, light hearted, really sweet romance. I love Lucie! She is smart and sweet and a great foil for Arthur. Watching these two fight for a better future and fall for each other along the way is adorable. I look forward to the next books in the series.

This is a new author for me. Great characters and a great storyline! I can’t wait for books two and three to see what is in store for Arthur’s brother and sister. I received an ARC for a fair review.

What a super read! Best news of all is that's it's the first in a new series. Lucie needs to get out of London and a short-term contract living in a real castle seems like the ideal escape. Certain that she will find her new employer to be an older gentleman of the aristocracy, she is shocked to be faced by a contemporary, Arthur - or should that  be Sir Arthur to her? Having inherited the title but not the wealth to keep the estate going, the family are hoping that Lucie will discover some long hidden treasure to balance the family coffers. She quickly gets on with the job in hand, but finds herself ever distracted by the very handsome Arthur . . . This is a well-written novel, packed with a wide variety of characters each with their own differing personality traits and lots going on to keep the readers' attention. The setting is sublime and with a bit of mystery and a touch of romance along with the everyday events, it's a light, happy feel-good read which I melted into - closing the final page with a sigh of satisfaction. I'm already looking forward to the second book, and recommend this to everyone who needs a bit of cheerful distraction in their busy daily life.
