Spring at Lavender Bay Reviews

    4.25 stars. Sarah Bennett?s Butterfly Cove series was one of my favourites of both 2017 and the genre, so to say I was a teeny bit eager to pack my bags and head off to discover what treats Lavender Bay held for me, is a bit of an understatement. And those treats come in the form ...

    3 - Let?s have a spring fling! Stars! Sarah Bennett, begins her new Lavender Bay series with Spring, an albeit easy, but pretty underwhelming read. "It?s a bad idea?" I loved this authors previous series; Butterfly Cove and have since also discovered that she writes er...

    ARC received from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is one of those instances, where I really wish GR introduced the half-star rating. It is certainly better than 2 stars, but I feel it does not deserve a clean 3 stars for a rather pleasant and li...

    I became a fan of Sarah Bennett last year when I jumped in part way in her Butterfly Cove series so I was so pleased to be able to start her new series at the first book. She has a lovely way with words and writes the sweetest romances with realistic and wholly relatable characters tha...

    The story goes thus, Beth returns back to Lavender Bay on the death of Eleanor and finds herself inheriting her shop Eleanor's Emporium. Determined to restore the shop to its past glory and return back, she soon finds herself captured by Lavender Bay, its residents, and the entire seas...

    DNF at 35%. I adored Sarah Bennett's Butterfly Cove series so I was stoked to see this up for request at NetGalley. Sadly, after two attempts I just couldn't get into this book. Beth Reynolds spent the best part of her childhood at Lavender Bay but left to forge a career in Lo...

    I was excited to have a chance to read the first book in the new series, Lavender Bay. Beth was taken in by a neighbor as a teenager when her mother left Lavender Bay. She has grown very close to the woman and is heartbroken upon her death. Now this is when the real fun starts, but n...

    This is the first book in the lavender bay series and I loved Sarah's first series and can really see enjoying this series to as full of romance and finding out uwho you really are and finding a new life for herself and being with friends and in a place she loves and not following her ...

    This is my first book by Sarah Bennett and it won't be my last. I enjoy these fun, romantic stories on the coast in the UK. Beth returns to Lavender Cove for the funeral of Eleanor, the woman who raised her. When she finds out that Eleanor has left the Emporium to her, she needs to fig...

    All reviews can be found on my blog at https://thewritinggarnet.wordpress.com After falling in love with the authors first serial (and not just because it contained the word 'Butterfly'), I had absolutely no idea how she was going to trump that serial. I mean really, if you've read ...

    Beth gets left the Emporium b.y the lady who took her in as a teenager. She is keen to make it a going concern so that she has an option to sell it. She loves being back amongst friends in Lavender Bay and they take one of their own back into their hearts. She starts to feel at home an...

    This has to be one of the best, if not the best book that I have read this year. This is my first book by the author and won't be my last. I have already downloaded the second book in this series onto my kindle to read next. I have pre-ordered the 3rd book which is to be released Nov. ...

    The characters here just never connected with me. The story was too messy and not properly developed. Beth teetered back and forth from just plain rude to whiny and childish. Sam had an unnatural way of talking about Beth as a child while at the same time trying to get into her pants a...

    Beth is having a rough month: missing her friends back in Lavender Bay, frustrated with work and a dotard for a boss, a depressing bed-sit that takes much of her salary and still wondering how to explain to her absent but very overly critical mother that she?s not got the ?boyfrien...

    Beth is left a bric-a-brac shop by her good friend Eleanor. Beth had left home and made a life for herself in London where she is overworked, and unappreciated until the inheritance. Not sure what to do with the shop she decides to clean up and sort through the various items and then r...

    This is a good beginning to the new series, Lavender Bay. There are two more books in the works. Three friends, Beth, Eliza and Libby grew up together in the lovely small town and Beth returns to bury the wonderful woman who raised her. Eleanor left Beth Eleanor's Emporium, the small s...

    Just gonna say it, Sam is kinda perfect. Looking forward to the next two books in this series. ...

    Spring at Lavender Bay is the first in a new trilogy from author Sarah Bennett. I read and enjoyed her Butterfly Cove series last year and it seems if the formula isn't broken why change things? By this I mean similar to the Butterfly Cove series these new stories will again follow thr...

    3.5 stars Spring at Lavender Bay is the first Sarah Bennett?s books I read and I grabbed at the chance to read it as it?s also the first of a new series. Set in a fictional seaside town of Lavender Bay, this book is a delightful introduction to the author?s writing and the mes...

    Sarah Bennett who delighted me and many others with her Butterfly Cove series is back with Spring at Lavender Bay, the first in another trilogy. In this first book of course we meet all the characters that we are going to grow to love and possibly hate in the coming pages and subseq...

    I enjoyed this book, nice read, looking forward to the rest in the series ...

    This has been my first book by Bennett and I was not disappointed. A charming story about friendship, small town community and, of course, love. ...

    This book focuses on three friends, Libby, Eliza and Beth with this book mostly looking at Beth. I loved the whole setting of Lavender Bay and those who live there. The friendships portrayed are strong and sweet and a nice secondary focus to the romance. There is drama, intrigu...

    This review originally appeared on BrizzleLass Books. Beth is stuck in a miserable job where she is underappreciated and overworked, her boyfriend just upped and left her high and dry, life in London s lonely and not at all what she had hoped for. Then she gets the devastating news ...

    Spring at Lavender Bay is billed as a delightfully uplifting romance. And I can say, most categorically, that it is that. Many times during the two days it took me to read it, I smiled and melted at the sweet scenes within. I think what drew me to this book in the first place was El...

    I enjoyed this book, nice read, looking forward to the rest in the series ...

    This has been my first book by Bennett and I was not disappointed. A charming story about friendship, small town community and, of course, love. ...

    This book focuses on three friends, Libby, Eliza and Beth with this book mostly looking at Beth. I loved the whole setting of Lavender Bay and those who live there. The friendships portrayed are strong and sweet and a nice secondary focus to the romance. There is drama, intrigu...

    Spring at Lavender Bay is billed as a delightfully uplifting romance. And I can say, most categorically, that it is that. Many times during the two days it took me to read it, I smiled and melted at the sweet scenes within. I think what drew me to this book in the first place was El...

    So after reading the wonderful Butterfly Cove series I literally could not wait to read Sarah Bennett's new series. Spring at Lavender Bay is one of those stories where in no time at all I felt so at home in this wonderful community aswell as feeling part of a wonderful friendship that...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic story about new beginnings and opportunities. There is such charm in the setting on the seaside filled with so many delightful characters. Beth Reynolds leaves a crummy job in London and moves to Lavender Bay when she inherits a curio/gift shop form...

    This is my second book by Sarah that I have read and I must say I like this one better than the last book I read. Don't get me wrong, the last book Christmas at Butterfly Cove was a wonderful book. I just loved this story more. In this story Beth Reynolds has not had the most ea...

    4.25 stars. Sarah Bennett?s Butterfly Cove series was one of my favourites of both 2017 and the genre, so to say I was a teeny bit eager to pack my bags and head off to discover what treats Lavender Bay held for me, is a bit of an understatement. And those treats come in the form ...

    ARC received from the Publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This is one of those instances, where I really wish GR introduced the half-star rating. It is certainly better than 2 stars, but I feel it does not deserve a clean 3 stars for a rather pleasant and li...

    I became a fan of Sarah Bennett last year when I jumped in part way in her Butterfly Cove series so I was so pleased to be able to start her new series at the first book. She has a lovely way with words and writes the sweetest romances with realistic and wholly relatable characters tha...

    Beth gets left the Emporium b.y the lady who took her in as a teenager. She is keen to make it a going concern so that she has an option to sell it. She loves being back amongst friends in Lavender Bay and they take one of their own back into their hearts. She starts to feel at home an...

    This has to be one of the best, if not the best book that I have read this year. This is my first book by the author and won't be my last. I have already downloaded the second book in this series onto my kindle to read next. I have pre-ordered the 3rd book which is to be released Nov. ...

    Beth is having a rough month: missing her friends back in Lavender Bay, frustrated with work and a dotard for a boss, a depressing bed-sit that takes much of her salary and still wondering how to explain to her absent but very overly critical mother that she?s not got the ?boyfrien...

    Beth is left a bric-a-brac shop by her good friend Eleanor. Beth had left home and made a life for herself in London where she is overworked, and unappreciated until the inheritance. Not sure what to do with the shop she decides to clean up and sort through the various items and then r...

    This is a good beginning to the new series, Lavender Bay. There are two more books in the works. Three friends, Beth, Eliza and Libby grew up together in the lovely small town and Beth returns to bury the wonderful woman who raised her. Eleanor left Beth Eleanor's Emporium, the small s...

    3.5 stars Spring at Lavender Bay is the first Sarah Bennett?s books I read and I grabbed at the chance to read it as it?s also the first of a new series. Set in a fictional seaside town of Lavender Bay, this book is a delightful introduction to the author?s writing and the mes...

    Sarah Bennett who delighted me and many others with her Butterfly Cove series is back with Spring at Lavender Bay, the first in another trilogy. In this first book of course we meet all the characters that we are going to grow to love and possibly hate in the coming pages and subseq...

    I enjoyed this book, nice read, looking forward to the rest in the series ...

    This has been my first book by Bennett and I was not disappointed. A charming story about friendship, small town community and, of course, love. ...

    This book focuses on three friends, Libby, Eliza and Beth with this book mostly looking at Beth. I loved the whole setting of Lavender Bay and those who live there. The friendships portrayed are strong and sweet and a nice secondary focus to the romance. There is drama, intrigu...

    Spring at Lavender Bay is billed as a delightfully uplifting romance. And I can say, most categorically, that it is that. Many times during the two days it took me to read it, I smiled and melted at the sweet scenes within. I think what drew me to this book in the first place was El...

    So after reading the wonderful Butterfly Cove series I literally could not wait to read Sarah Bennett's new series. Spring at Lavender Bay is one of those stories where in no time at all I felt so at home in this wonderful community aswell as feeling part of a wonderful friendship that...

    I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic story about new beginnings and opportunities. There is such charm in the setting on the seaside filled with so many delightful characters. Beth Reynolds leaves a crummy job in London and moves to Lavender Bay when she inherits a curio/gift shop form...

    This is my second book by Sarah that I have read and I must say I like this one better than the last book I read. Don't get me wrong, the last book Christmas at Butterfly Cove was a wonderful book. I just loved this story more. In this story Beth Reynolds has not had the most ea...

    Beth is having a rough month: missing her friends back in Lavender Bay, frustrated with work and a dotard for a boss, a depressing bed-sit that takes much of her salary and still wondering how to explain to her absent but very overly critical mother that she?s not got the ?boyfrien...

    Beth is left a bric-a-brac shop by her good friend Eleanor. Beth had left home and made a life for herself in London where she is overworked, and unappreciated until the inheritance. Not sure what to do with the shop she decides to clean up and sort through the various items and then r...

    This is a good beginning to the new series, Lavender Bay. There are two more books in the works. Three friends, Beth, Eliza and Libby grew up together in the lovely small town and Beth returns to bury the wonderful woman who raised her. Eleanor left Beth Eleanor's Emporium, the small s...

    The Blurb : Beth Reynolds loved growing up close to Eleanor?s Emporium ? a bric-a-brac shop full of wonders on Lavender Bay. Devastated to learn that Eleanor has died, she returns home from London immediately and is shocked to discover that the elderly lady has left the shop to ...

    Just gonna say it, Sam is kinda perfect. Looking forward to the next two books in this series. ...

    Spring at Lavender Bay is the first in a new trilogy from author Sarah Bennett. I read and enjoyed her Butterfly Cove series last year and it seems if the formula isn't broken why change things? By this I mean similar to the Butterfly Cove series these new stories will again follow thr...

    3.5 stars Spring at Lavender Bay is the first Sarah Bennett?s books I read and I grabbed at the chance to read it as it?s also the first of a new series. Set in a fictional seaside town of Lavender Bay, this book is a delightful introduction to the author?s writing and the mes...

    Sarah Bennett who delighted me and many others with her Butterfly Cove series is back with Spring at Lavender Bay, the first in another trilogy. In this first book of course we meet all the characters that we are going to grow to love and possibly hate in the coming pages and subseq...

    I enjoyed this book, nice read, looking forward to the rest in the series ...

    4.25 stars. Sarah Bennett?s Butterfly Cove series was one of my favourites of both 2017 and the genre, so to say I was a teeny bit eager to pack my bags and head off to discover what treats Lavender Bay held for me, is a bit of an understatement. And those treats come in the form ...
