Eeek Brides and Bouquets is the second installment in Rebecca Raisin's Christmas series and after finishing this one it's safe to say I am a firm member of the Cedarwood community. Reading book 2 is like jumping back into line with those friends that you know are going to be with you for life, even if you don't see them all the time. After a brief time away after reading book 1, I was right back into the swing of things, happily enjoying the change in the weather at Cedarwood and getting excited by the upcoming event at Cedarwood lodge.

In Brides and Bouquets, we meet Clio as she is organizing the big bridal expo that is just around the corner. The lodge is completely decked out with Christmas decorations, all her vendors are confirmed and she is loving having her best friend Amory with her to help. Together they sure do make a dream team. There's only one person missing and Clio can't seem to get him out of her head. With so much to do at the lodge she can't be thinking about her love life and even when she actually ends up needing said someone after finding out the bridal expo could be ruined without him, it's still only because of the lodge's 'best interests.' When she isn't thinking about the lodge or her love life, Clio is still attempting to reconnect with her mother and uncover the truth about the past at Cedarwood lodge. Something happened that no one will tell her about and she's determined to find out what it was. 
Suspense...that's all I can say! I think I know exactly how Clio feels in this book, as I want to know what happened at Cedarwood Lodge all those years ago, just as badly as she does! Rebecca Raisin had me on the edge of my seat wanting more information, not just with the Lodge but also with our blonde surfer Kai. Will he and Clio ever admit that they like each other?!!! Ahh I want to know!! I loved being back at Cedarwood and hearing about all the goings on at the lodge. I wanted to be right there with Clio and Amory decorating, it sounded so magical. Plus it was snowing...snowing!! I can just picture the lodge in my mind now with the trees, the snow, the twinkling of the fairy lights and the abundance of decorations. I would book a trip there for every year in a heartbeat! 
In addition, I  love how Amory has stayed with Clio and that the two of them have this wonderful friendship of being there for each other and being able to confide in each other. We also get to meet Cruz, Amory's boyfriend in this book and let me tell you, he's a keeper for sure, I mean he cooks and not just cooks but cooks amazingly well and is helpful and sweet and romantic! Trust me when I say you will want to meet him! 
You really need to meet everyone at Cedarwood Lodge, so make sure you pick up 'Celebrations and Confetti' and 'Brides and Bouquets,' before 'Mistletoe and Midnight' comes out soon!

Happy Reading!
Love Kelly
