I am delighted to have an excerpt of MIDNIGHT & MISTLETOE AT CEDARWOOD LODGE by Rebecca Raisin to share with you all. Enjoy!!
My cell phone buzzed, and I checked the screen before answering. Mom. I smiled, hoping she was calling about all the gold and glitter desserts we’d ordered.
“Mom, how are you?”
“Clio what have you done?” her frosty tone froze me down to my bones. “You promised me you’d leave it alone, and now Isla comes into Puft and tells us all how she’s found a maze, and is going to restore it back into its former glory. You promised me, Clio.”
Damn it. I hadn’t thought to tell Isla to keep it hushed up for now. To be honest, I hadn’t expected her to mention it to anyone, least of all my own mother.
I took a steadying breath, “They don’t know anything about it, Mom. Isla stumbled on it and showed Micah, and they announced it to all of us on Christmas Eve. There was nothing I could do, they found it by pure accident. And I didn’t mention a word about it, I just changed the subject and hoped they’d forget.”
Mom sighed, a world-weary, I-can’t-handle-this-any-more kind of sound. I was at a loss for words and was bone-weary about it all myself. Hiding someone else’s secret was exhausting, especially when I didn’t know what it was exactly.
Mom’s delicate health concerned me, and I worried about what she’d do if she felt cornered, but surely it had to come out. It’s not as though the town folk didn’t know… They did, and they kept their lips pressed tight when questioned over it. And me, her own daughter, wasn’t trusted enough to confide in. It was mind bending.
“Mom, look. I know it’s difficult for you and I’m not trying to push you or anything, but don’t you think it’s time you told me? Cedarwood is getting busier by the day, we’ve got guests booked to stay in the lodge soon. We’ve got parties and weddings planned. I can’t keep it a secret forever, people will stumble over it if they hike, and especially as Isla clears the grounds come spring. Don’t you think it’s better if I know what happened?” She didn’t say anything but her breathing was audibly shallow. With a soothing voice I tried a different tack, “Why don’t you come visit, and we’ll find the maze together?”
With the holidays almost over, Clio and her friends at Cedarwood Lodge are gearing up to throw a New Year's Eve party that will blow everyone's socks off, and there is something about the lodge that seems to have everyone finding what they need. Watching her friends settle down with their soulmates really makes Clio smile, but she cannot help but wonder if love will ever work out for her? With her childhood sweetheart, Tim, making it clear that he would like them to pick up where they left off all those years ago, Clio certainly has options. But can he make her heart flutter the way Kai can? And what will she do when Kai leaves Cedarwood behind for good? Add in the mystery surrounding her mother and the maze which finally comes to light, and maybe this new year will be everything that Clio needs to make her grab a hold of what she wants from life. MIDNIGHT & MISTLETOE AT CEDARWOOD LODGE by Rebecca Raisin is the third and final instalment of this beautiful, heartfelt series and is sure to make you smile. With plenty of laughs, misunderstandings, and havoc along the way, you will not regret stepping into Cedarwood Lodge and its magical world. I ADORE this series and really didn't want it to end - but what an ending! The perfect cosy read for this Christmas.
