Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my review for Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle by Sarah Bennett as part of the blog tour today. With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources also to the author and publisher for my copy via Netgalley. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
The summer she will never forget…
Time’s running out for Iggy Ludworth to restore the wild gardens of Camland Castle in time for the Summer Fete, so she ropes in hotshot gardener Will Talbot…
But she regrets her decision as soon as he sets foot in the historic grounds – not only is Will arrogant and bossy, he’s totally gorgeous!
And very soon, sparks are flying amongst the bluebells. Yet with summer nearly over, will their summer fling convince Will and Iggy to go the distance?
Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley, Rachael Lucas and Hilary Boyd.
Book 1: Spring Skies

Book 3: Starlight Over Bluebell Castle
Here we are on book two of the Bluebell Castle series and I couldn’t wait to get back to the characters and the setting! Even though it is a series I would still class it as a standalone but it really is a gorgeous series so if you get chance I would say read book one first! In Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle we follow Iggy who is trying and working her hardest to restore the gardens at Camland Castle. However she finds herself slightly out of her depth and needs a little help, this is where Will Talbot steps in. Will is gardener to the stars and in hot demand, let’s just say he comes in and definitely shakes things up at the Castle along with ruffling Iggy’s feathers!
If you are looking for a romance that will make you smile, sigh and completely wrap you up then look no further. Sarah Bennett has done it again and created two characters that had me rooting for them right from the beginning. They balanced each other out perfectly with Iggy being a little prickly and Will being a little smooth. However as the book progressed their personalities and back stories came to the surface showing that there was so much more to their characters which made me like them even more!
I don’t have green fingers in the slightest but I loved the plot of restoring the gardens and all the plans to achieve it. Along with catching up with the Ludworth family and seeing how they were getting on. There is such a heartwarming feeling to this book and I loved the family connection. These siblings may disagree, tease and annoy each other but they also take care of each other and I love that! Then seeing a gorgeous romance develop it all combined to make a story that I easily found myself caught up in. I can’t wait for Tristan’s story but it will also be sad to see the series end!
Sunshine Over Bluebell Castle is a story about family, love and romance with a wonderful uplifting vibe!
Sarah Bennett has been reading for as long as she can remember. Raised in a family of bookworms, her love affair with books of all genres has culminated in the ultimate Happy Ever After – getting to write her own stories to share with others.
Born and raised in a military family, she is happily married to her own Officer (who is sometimes even A Gentleman). Home is wherever he lays his hat, and life has taught them both that the best family is the one you create from friends as well as relatives.
When not reading or writing, Sarah is a devotee of afternoon naps and sailing the high seas, but only on vessels large enough to accommodate a casino and a choice of restaurants.
Sarah is the author of the Butterfly Cove, Lavender Bay and Bluebell Castle trilogies, published by HQ Digital UK.
