MY REVIEW

The series that just keeps giving!! I cannot believe this is the 17th novella in The Little Duck Pond Cafe , and it still feels as fresh as Book 1!!  

The build up to the wedding continues and, as you can imagine, it doesn’t run smoothly! When does it ever?!  So there’s another case for Ruby and Hudson to solve and I love these characters together.  They just work so well together and nothing seems to stop them on getting to the bottom of things!

And poor Fen should be looking forward to her wedding, but as introvert she is finding it all a little too overwhelming and spiralling out of control, mostly thanks to her mother who has somewhat taken over the planning and she doesn’t seem to understand the meaning of a quiet, intimate ceremony!

Full of wonderful characters and intriguing situations, it’s one of those stories that just grabs you from the get go and I’m already counting down the days until the next installment!!

On to the book….

Sweet Pastries & Sourdough, Little Duck Pond Café

Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start. But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship. So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention. Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)

Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?

Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building. Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…

MY REVIEW

The Little Duck Pond series continues!! This is the 15th novella in the series, and I NEVER want it to end!!  It’s the perfect series to escape in to, full of characters that you take to your hearts, and situations that draw you in. Oh and baking!!! There can never be too much baking!

Anita is the main focus of this series and she’s dealing with a million problems that life seems to have thrown her way.  Dealing with pain and medical issues, being a mum to the cheeky little chap, but full of beans, Rufus, and struggling with confidence she doesn’t know what way to turn, other than to ignore some problems and hope they go away! If only that worked!

She’s offered the opportunity to teach some baking classes, and baking has always been her way of escaping and coping. With the class comes new characters for us to fall in love with – Russ and  Sven especially!!  

I found Anita to be such a relatable character – trying to come to terms with changes in her life while facing up to the past, she had no option to keep going but she’d always doubt herself and finds it tough to focus on herself with the adorable Rufus being so full on!  At least he can run off some energy at his football training!

This was another wonderful addition to the series and I hope there’s still more to come!!

Amazon UK

MY REVIEW

The perfect Christmas treat for me as a fan of the Little Duck Pond series! It was so wonderful to catch up with old friends, and make new friends in the characters introduced!

This story revolves around Jenny who is dreading this Christmas – her first without her other half who passed away the year before. She is bringing up his daughter and there are a few teenage issues with her that Jenny also has to deal with causing her more stress. She wants to be there for her step daughter but Tavie isn’t proving the easiest to deal with.

For Jenny her cookery is her escape, and her friend Fen asks her to cater a week long Christmas party at Brambleberry Manor for her mum and a few guests. So with Flo as her assistant she has a busy week ahead, not to mention the surprise extra guests and a couple of cooking disasters! Not to mention seeing a face from the past that brings back some very unhappy memories.

There’s lots of laughs in this book, alongside a more serious side of coping with grief and dealing with secrets that shock you and the implications they have on others. Rosie has created another set of characters that you instantly care about and enjoy watching them work their way through whatever life throws their way. A wonderful winter treat!! Cannot wait to see what book #15 has in store for us!!

Delighted to be joining you today as part of the Blog Blitz for A KISS IN THE SNOW. My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for putting the blitz all together and letting me be part of it!

A Kiss in the Snow, Little Duck Pond Café


After a cruel twist of fate sends her hurtling into a black hole of despair, Carrie is absolutely dreading the festive season – especially with sister, Krystle, being even more demanding of her time and energy than usual. But then friend Maddy offers Carrie a lifeline: the chance to get away from it all in a holiday cottage in the gorgeous little village of Silverbells. Deciding that a few weeks of tranquillity – reading, baking and going for long walks in the countryside – might just restore her mood, Carrie is quick to take up the offer. But on arriving, it very soon becomes clear that this break is going to be anything but peaceful!


An unwelcome houseguest proves unsettling enough – especially one who whistles loudly first thing in the morning and is far too cheerful for his own good – but finding herself drawn into the spooky mystery of her missing neighbour means there really isn’t much time for personal reflection. And then love comes knocking, and Carrie is forced to decide exactly where her heart lies.Will this festive season be the disaster Carrie predicted? Or will Santa be good to her and deliver her heart’s desire? One thing’s for sure – this will be a Christmas Carrie will never, ever forget…

MY REVIEW


Number 13 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe and that means very lucky for us!! I adore this series so am always eager to dive right back into the fun, and this is another wonderful installment of this series and I just didn’t want it to end again!


This time the action takes place in the little village of Silverbells, where Carrie finds herself to get away from life and her sister!  Carrie has been close to Adam for some time now and always imagined them being more than just friends, but when he confesses he fancies her sister it’s the final straw for her! She needs a break so goes to stay at  a friend’s holiday cottage where the fun and games begins!

She soon finds herself taken with the village goings on – there’s always lots of drama going on and a good set of characters to engage with, especially her unexpected housemate and the mystery of the missing neighbour! She doesn’t quite get the quiet time she planned but I think she’s much happier being fully involved with people!


I loved the mix of storylines within this book! And Carrie is such a likeable character that you genuinely enjoy watching her trying to deal with her issues, and admire her for  not being tempted to wallow and hide away!


If you’ve not read any of this series yet, then this is very easy to read as a standalone – just enjoy catching up with the rest of the series once you’ve finished because you will want to play catch up!!


Now to hope that there’ll be another Little Duck Pond Cafe installment very soon!!! Pretty please!!

Can she convince the delectable Jack that their relationship is worth another shot? Or has their romance ground to a permanent halt like a faulty big wheel? Will she solve the mystery of the missing name on her birth certificate? Or will her discoveries take her on a journey even bumpier than the dodgem cars? One thing’s for sure. Madison is going to need more than a fairground fortune teller to find the answers to her questions, if she’s going to ‘waltz-er’ into the happiest of sunsets…

MY REVIEW


This is the 12th novella in the series… and I never want it to end!!! I have adored every part of this series, and this is one is no exception! It’s like catching up with old friends and this time there’s an awful lot going on to remind us that reconnecting with the past doesn’t always go as smoothly as we hope!

The story centres mainly around Madison and the dilemma she finds herself facing.  She’s at a crossroads in her life wanting to move forward, but there’s unresolved issues from the past that are causing her to rebel a little!  She’s always felt a little out of place in the family with her decision to follow a career in baking and not law, but she soon discovers some news that rock everything she ever knew and doesn’t know how to cope with it.

There’s also excitement amongst the ladies as Jaz is soon to give birth so everyone is on high alert and tensions often run high with all that is going on! Sometimes friendly advice isn’t as well accepted when hormones are in the mix!!

As always, I just really enjoyed spending time in the company of these women. In Madison, we meet a character who has shown real growth over the past couple of books and has mellowed out a bit – but she still has a tendency to rush things and act before she speaks or thinks and we get to see the consequences of that play out in this storyline.  Just another wonderful addition to the series and I’m already counting down the days until the next installment!!!

#BlogTour A Cornish Summer Holiday at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green #bookreview @rararesources

A huge pleasure to be here today as part of the Blog Tour for the wonderful A CORNISH SUMMER HOLIDAY AT THE LITTLE DUCK POND CAFE by ROSIE GREEN.  My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel’s Random Resources for letting me be part of it all!!

A Cornish Summer Holiday at the Little Duck Pond Café

The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls are looking forward to a well-earned break in the Cornish seaside town of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Aggie, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and an ice-cream parlour only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even have a go themselves). But when they arrive, the girls find it’s not quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house.’ 

Gracie, who runs the ice-cream parlour, has problems of her own and the last thing she needs is a bunch of high-spirited girls arriving to disturb the peace and isolation she craves. And when a handsome stranger looks set to destroy her livelihood, it seems like the last straw. Will Gracie get her happy ending – and maybe even make friends with the girls next-door? This wasn’t the relaxing break the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls were expecting, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the holiday of a lifetime!

MY REVIEW


And so we meet again!! The Little Duck Pond Girls are back in my life once more, albeit playing a slightly lesser role in this book, as they venture away from the Duck Pond Cafe and introduce us to Pengully Sands in Cornwall and some new characters and it’s blooming wonderful to be back amongst old friends – I can’t actually believe this is the 10th ‘visit’ to the Little Duck Pond Cafe series. It still feels as fresh as book 1, and has progressed so much in the topics and genres it covers….. 


This is a story told from 2 points of view – from the viewpoint of The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls as they embark on a girls holiday to Cornwall, and a new voice on the block, that of Gracie who has returned to Pengully Sands to run Beachside Ices. It’s a place that she has very fond memories of but the customers are dwindling and she finds herself living life a little aimlessly and wondering what is next for her – other than baking (and eating!) more cakes which is where she finds comfort.


I love the mix of characters that the author puts together – each has their own story to tell and are given time to express themselves and support one another.  In Gracie, we have a character who we can see is having trouble moving on and finding it difficult to find herself and focus on the future, and with the help of her new, albeit temporary, next door neighbours she begins to see a chink of light and trying to find a way forward for her and  way to let go of the past. And to stop hiding away and embrace the company and help of others who want to do what they can for her.


Add to the mix some ghostly goings on, mysteries from the past revealed by an old diary, a renovation project and some soul searching and you’ve got a pretty  perfect package of a story within the pages of this book! Love Love Love!!  I can’t wait for the next installment!!

#BlogTour LEMON DRIZZLE MONDAYS AT THE LITTLE DUCK POND CAFE by ROSIE GREEN @rararesources @Rosie_Green1988

Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Café 

Molly Hooper has a secret. It haunts her dreams and casts a dark shadow over life with her gorgeous three-year-old daughter, Eva. Arriving in Sunnybrook has given her a glimpse of sunshine. The Little Duck Pond Cafe crew seem so welcoming and there’s even the chance of a new job. Baking delicious cakes has always taken Molly to a happy place, so the job – at the glorious Brambleberry Manor Cafe – might just be perfect for her. It would mean she and little Eva could finally put down some roots at last. But is Sunnybrook the sanctuary Molly is searching for? Or will the past come back to haunt her, wherever she hides?

MY REVIEW

I have adored this series from the start and this latest installment – #9! – didn’t disappoint!! Having so much time following the characters in Sunnybrook, this book was another welcome trip back to catch up with all the latest goings on and to hear the story of another inhabitant!

Molly gets her chance to share her story in Lemon Drizzle Mondays, and it’s another cracking story of friendship, overcoming problems and the power of kindness!  Molly and her daughter, Eva – just the cutest little girl! – are having landlord issues and finding life a little tougher than normal. Starting a new job she doesn’t get off to the greatest starts when crossing paths with Matt, the local bookbinder, and she just wonders if her bad luck is going to continue! Her new job at Brambledown Manor Cafe starts off slowly, and they need to find ways to get new customers through the door. And that’s where kindness comes into action! It’s a novel way of attracting new people through the door and shows the power of community – and the power of offering cake as a reward!!

Once again, we get to reconnect with characters from previous Little Duck Pond Cafe installments, and it just feels like coming home again catching up with them all! Knowing what Molly has been through in the past, it really makes you feel for her and just want the best for her and little Eva.

It was just wonderful to escape into this world with this wonderful community and I’m already counting down the days until the next installment!!  Highly recommended!!

MY REVIEW

It is always a delight to read a book with a smile on your face, and that’s exactly what I found myself doing with this latest installment in the Duck Pond Cafe series, as we get to meet back up with ‘old friends’ – that’s what they feel like now to me as a reader! – and see the latest goings on in the wonderful community that comes together  through good and bad times.

And there’s good times on the way in the Winter Wedding, as the big day approaches for Ellie and Zak and of course things don’t run smoothly! There are last minute jitters and with Zak away a lot promoting his latest book, that means more time for Ellie to overthink things instead of just trying to enjoy herself!

There are many other characters who get featured in this book and their own trials and tribulations really add to the story. Hearing the stories from Jaz and Fen themselves adds an extra depth to this installment as each could have had their own story being the main feature. Jaz is struggling with her medical diagnosis and Fen is wondering just where her new relationship is going, despite being totally loved up and very happy!  

I loved every minute of this book! There’s a great warmth and humour written into each character and you can easily picture yourself turning up in the community and finding a friend or two to hang out with and I’m already counting down the days until the next installment – Lemon Drizzle Mondays is on the way soon!! Hurry up already!!!

Bonfires & Hot Chocolate (at the Little Duck Pond Café)

If you love all the colours of autumn, you’re sure to warm to this uplifting story of love, loss and starting over.

Primrose Wilkins arrived in Sunnybrook with a burning desire to find the family she’s never known. But after a heart-breaking false start, she’s beginning to have second thoughts. Can she find the courage to battle on in her quest? And with her romantic life at an all-time low, will meeting the intriguing and attractive Callum Davy be just what she needs to renew her faith in love?

Meanwhile, Fen is also finding it hard to be brave. She’s made it through to the final of TV show ‘Battle of the Bakes’ (thanks to Ellie entering on her behalf), but she’s always shied away from being in the spotlight. How will Fen cope now that she’s a famous ‘celebrity’, recognised in the street everywhere she goes?

MY REVIEW

It is fair to say that I love this series, and just when you think it can’t get any better – it does!!!  

The latest installment features Primrose, a woman with quirky fashion sense and on a mission to find her grandmother as she’s feeling very alone and just wants some answers to questions that have bugged her for years.

She’s found plenty to keep her days busy and put a smile on her face with working at the cafe, and dog walking, and soon there’s someone else making her happy as she grows closer to Callum who is new to the village. She’s been treated bad by an ex so she’s happy not to rush into anything dating wise!

The community are also brought together to support Fen who is appearing on TV in a baking show, and I love how they all turn up to watch it together!

With Primrose delving into the past to uncover some truths, she’s really pushed through the ringer emotionally and I even found myself getting quite teary at times!  The more that she uncovers too, the more she finds extra support from someone else who isn’t Callum!  What a dilemma to have!!

The author has created such a wonderful set of characters that you can really connect to.  It’s so great to catch up with various people with each new novella, but they can easily be read as a standalone if you’ve not visited The Little Duck Pond Cafe before!  I adored this latest installment and cannot shout loudly enough about how much I think everyone should visit The Little Duck Pond Cafe series!

Twitter – @Rosie_Green1988

MY REVIEW

I love this series so much! And with this latest installment – number 6 in the series but can easily be read as a standalone – I’m in love with it and the inhabitants of Sunnybrook even more!

With a wedding to be planned – for Ellie and Zak – there should be lots of happy times ahead for these characters, but there’s always something to throw a spanner in the works and in ‘Confetti’ there seems to be a massive cloud hanging over some of them that makes you wonder if maybe the marriage is not meant to be, especially as the book opens with what seems like a tragic event having taken place.

The story then jumps back 3 weeks so you can see what has led up to this moment and a lot can happen in 21 days!!  Ellie has had her heart set on an August wedding forever, and with her mum having Alzheimer’s then the quicker the wedding goes ahead the better, so her mum can share in a joyous day.  But disaster strikes on the venue front, and with a stubborn mum refusing to  do what’s best for her, then poor Ellie is really put to the test with what she has to deal with.

And there’s a new character to add to the mix in this part, Primrose, who seems to be searching for a few answers of her own, but is struggling to know where to turn. At least she hits it off straight away with the animal population of Sunnybrook and her farming skills are put to the test!

There is lots of humour and warmth throughout this story, and that mixes well alongside the more serious subjects that are faced by certain characters. It sums up life – it’s not all cups of tea and cakes! There’s reality in there and that helps you bond quickly with the characters – seeing them face up to real life issues.

Rosie has another hit on her hand with this one and I’m eagerly awaiting the next installment!! More please!!
