*BLOG TOUR* Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake at the Little Duck Pond Cafe – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; 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…

My Review; I bloody love this series. In this story we get a look into Maddys hectic life. A roller coaster of a read plenty of ups and plenty of downs. Bound to keep us reading and seeing what turns out good and what doesn’t. As usual loved the village, characters and setting. Perfect!

A cosy autumn read to curl up with. Really enjoyed it. A short one under 200 pages but well worth it! This series is expanding and I never want it to end. Brilliantly written. Parts had me laughing, parts had me tearing up. The friendships within this book have me beaming. THE ENDING. Oh my heart! Beautiful. Emotional. Perfection.

A well deserved four stars from me. Loved it!!! Devoured it. Already looking forward to the next one. Highly recommend this book and the whole series so far.

*BLOG TOUR* Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe – Rosie Green. ★★★★

Blurb; 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; This is book nine in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series, but each read brilliantly as standalones. This story is perfect right now, full of love, friendship, support, kindness and hope.

This story is a little different from the others as this is mostly set in another cafe not the little duck pond cafe. A new setting. Same faces. Same town. But with a newbie Molly and her daughter Eva. Molly has recently come to the town and this is her story. She is currently battling a twisted, manipulative landlord. She should have reached out for help sooner. She soon discovers she has plenty of friends and support around her which she needs to accept. As usual the town pulls together to help her out and she quickly becomes a part of the town. Then a romantic relationship may just be on the horizon for Molly.

A beautiful story. Uplifting. Happy. Made me laugh and smile. Just what I needed right now. It felt good to be back with this lovely bunch of people and the town. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars from me.

*BLOG TOUR* A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; With Zak and Ellie’s wedding day approaching, there’s high excitement in the pretty village of Sunnybrook, especially among the Little Duck Pond Café crew. Ellie is over the moon with her romantic surprise wedding gift from Zak, and Madison is promising to organise a hen party to remember. Everyone has high hopes for a magical Christmas Eve wedding celebration at gorgeous Brambleberry Manor. (Even Maisie-Moo has a sparkling new outfit.)
But sometimes, even the best-laid plans can go wrong. And with the journey to the altar turning out to be rockier than expected, it’s going to take nothing short of a Christmas miracle to ensure a happy ending . . .

My Review; The perfect festive read! It seems I’m still clinging on to Christmas by reading this one. What could be more magical than a beautiful wedding during the Christmas period? Yet again I felt welcomed back into this cosy town, with all the familar faces and characters. It felt like I’d never been away. A home away from home.

This is book eight in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series but all can easily be read as standalones I suppose, but I prefer to read them in order. I felt for Fen throughout this story as she was worrying, scared and thought she messed up. Then there was more than one happy ending here… I hope we see more and this isn’t the end.

It’s a short read, but a brilliant one that had me smiling throughout especially that perfect ending. Just beautiful. A well deserved four stars from me. Highly recommend. How beautiful is the cover? I love it!
