    A lovely and sweet romance that makes you wish it was spring. I love the lovely setting, rooted for the well thought characters and found it entertaining. I look forward to reading other books by this author. Recommended. Many thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for this ARC, all opinions are mine.

  • Most excellent read!

    A Springtime to Remember is a family drama, a mystery, and a budding romance all wrapped up in a descriptive trip to Versailles. TV personality Lexie is trying to become a producer through a proposed series showcasing the gardens at Versailles. Her grandmother had worked in the gardens before returning to England and getting married, however she never spoke of her time there. Assisting as her interpreter, Ronan has a search of his own going on concerning his grandfather, who also had worked in the gardens. The only person who might know about their relatives refuses to talk. Lexie’s search ramps up once her mother sends her grandmother’s Paris notebooks. What if anything will be revealed? This is a wonderful story written in such a way that readers stay engaged anxiously awaiting the next clue. The descriptions of Versailles and its gardens will make readers long to visit. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book. Most highly recommend.

  • I could almost smell the flowers

    Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for the opportunity to read a complimentary copy of this book in return for a review based upon my honest opinion. As our main character, Alexandra “Lexie” Winter flies off to France to do a documentary on the gardens in the castle of Versailles, we are swept along with her, I could almost smell the flowers of the gardens and feel the warm wind on my face, while listening to the birds chatter as they flit about the beautifully sculpted topiaries. The author did a lovely job describing the scenery. Lexie has put everything she has into this documentary, but it is not the only reason for her to be there. In the early 1960s, her grandmother, Viv, spent a year at Versailles in the gardens in a project that she never spoke of, Lexie is hoping to discover what her grandmother did that year and fill in that gap oh her family history. Her mother sends a box of notebooks from that time and with the help of Ronan, the interpreter for her documentary, she hopes to find the truth. But what is the truth and will getting close to it and Ronan be a dangerous idea for her heart, mind and career? A wonderful story of love and family; with beautiful scenery and descriptions. I have not been to Versailles, but I feel almost like I have seen it. This author is definitely on my list of authors to watch for.

  • A Terrific Read!

    If ever anything was going to give me the urge to travel, then this is it . . . Lexie is heading to the Palace of Versailles to work on her dream project. Knowing that her grandmother spent a year there when she was young has meant it's always held some appeal for her; but why was grandma Viv's time there such a family secret? Will the unexpected gift of Viv's notebooks written during that time reveal all? I don't have any inclination to go abroad whatsoever, but I could be tempted to head to Versailles now! This is a fantastic story with superb characters in the most wonderful setting. Lucy Coleman paints a vivid picture of the beauty of France as seen through Lexie's eyes and, along with a very finely woven story, this is a terrific read. I actually felt warmer (we're in the throes of several stormy weekends here) and could almost feel the sun beating down and smell the scent of the gardens in the Palace of Versailles. Such a pity her series isn't going to be shown! A fabulous read from an author I can always rely on to deliver an interesting and satisfying read, and it deserves all five glowing stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Story with the flavor and feel of a Paris spring🌹

    Springtime in Paris (suburbs): savor 💛 love and 🍷🧀🍞 life en rose!🌹 😌This story had all the feel of French living from the moment heroine Lexie steps foot in her little residential enclave in the town of Versailles. Her first introduction to the palace of Versailles reminded me of my wonder at setting eyes on its front courtyard entrance, something that photos did not prepare me to grasp in its immensity and grandeur. Her descriptions of the palace took me back and made me realize that there was so much I missed! I really enjoyed learning more about the history of the palace gardens. While the author's descriptions at times get a bit down in the weeds, the story of Lexie's romance with the gardens of Versailles, her little neighborhood, French culinary delights, the local people who touched her life and, yes, her love interest, was a good one. And the mystery of her grandmother's year at Versailles in 1961 added some suspense and, eventually, a good deal of pathos to the story. Lexie's chancy career move turns out to be a real life-changing adventure. This was a solid, clean read, well-written and with a good ensemble of well-drawn characters. Thanks to publisher Boldwood Books and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
