#BlogTour LOG FIRES AND TOFFEE APPLE CAKE AT THE LITTLE DUCK POND CAFE by ROSIE GREEN #BookReview @rararesources

 


A delight as always to be on the blog tour for the latest in the Little Duck Pond Series! My thanks to the author, publisher and Rachel of Rachel's Random Resources for putting the tour together and letting me be part of it all!!

Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake at the Little Duck Pond Café



Get set for a wonderful celebration of autumn with all your favourite characters at the Little Duck Pond Cafe!

An autumn fair is coming to Sunnybrook, much to the delight of the villagers. But for Madison, whose personal life seems to be spinning out of control, a roller-coaster is the last thing she needs – especially when it’s her emotions at stake.

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…

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.

Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape', is out now.

Rosie will be revisiting the Little Duck Pond Café with a beautiful story of love and friendship at Christmas time, entitled A Kiss in the Snow, out in October 2020.

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!!!
