A delight, as always, to be part of a Blog Tour for the latest installment of The Little Duck Pond series! My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for putting it all together and letting me be part of it all!


Confetti at the Little Duck Pond Cafe Wedding fever is in the air in the village of Sunnybrook. With Ellie and Zak's Big Day on the horizon, the sun is shining brightly on the Little Duck Pond Cafe community. But when dark clouds begin to roll in from more than one direction, several close relationships look to be under threat. Will the wedding of the year actually take place at all?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR



Rosie Green 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 on life in a village cafĂ©. Confetti at the Little Duck Pond Cafe will be the sixth in the series

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!!
