A huge delight to be on the Blog Tour today for return to the Little Duck Pond Cafe with the fabulous BONFIRES & HOT CHOCOLATE installment!! My thanks as always to the author, publisher and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for putting the tour together and letting me be part of it all!
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?
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Rosie has been scribbling stories ever since she was little. Back then, they were rip-roaring adventure tales with a young heroine in perilous danger of falling off a cliff or being tied up by ‘the baddies’.
Thankfully, Rosie has moved on somewhat, and now much prefers to write romantic comedies that melt your heart and make you smile, with really not much perilous danger involved at all – unless you count the heroine losing her heart in love.
Rosie’s brand new series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Bonfires & Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.
Watch out for ‘A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, which will be published Christmas 2019. Rosie is also writing a full-length, standalone book for Christmas 2019, entitled ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’.

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!
