Today I am very excited to be joining the blog tour for A Springtime to Remember by Lucy Coleman, this was my first book by this author and I loved it and am excited to read more books by this author.
A lovely story set in Versailles that will make you keen to keep reading and leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Lexie has headed to Versailles to follow in her Grandmother’s footsteps and try to discover more about a year of her life she never discussed.
Set against a stunning back drop I loved devouring the story of Lexie and getting to know the story of her Grandmother and what really happened in the year she spent in Versailles. The story pulled me in early on as I love gardening and was fascinated by the gorgeous descriptions of the stunning gardens. My Grandad was a keen gardener and I really connected with this story on a personal level as it triggered happy memories from childhood and I wanted to take join Lexie on the journey and discover her families long lost secrets.
A book bursting with colour and vibrant descriptions that will make you want to go and visit the stunning locations, exploring the streets of Versailles and discovering the charm of the area for yourself. A wonderful feel good read that just swept me along and made me feel the sun on my skin as Lexie discovered a bit more of her family history each day.
Let Lucy Coleman transport you to glorious, sun-drenched France, for the perfect feel-good read.
Paris and the Palace of Versailles have always meant a lot to TV producer Lexie. Her grandma Viv spent a year there, but her adventures and memories were never discussed, and Lexie has long wondered why they were a family secret.
When work presents the perfect excuse to spend Springtime in Versailles, Lexie delves into Viv’s old diaries and scrapbooks, and with the help of handsome interpreter Ronan, she is soon learning more about the characters
that tend to the magnificent gardens, now and in the past.
In amongst the beauty and splendour of the French countryside, a story of lost love, rivalry and tragedy unfolds. Can Lexie and Ronan right the wrongs of the past, and will France play its tricks on them both before Lexie has to go home?
Will this truly be a Springtime to Remember…?
