*BLOG TOUR* Bonfires and Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; 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; This series has been brilliant! They’re all short, easy reads that will just take you away to a perfect, cute and cosy little town. It’s like returning home everytime I tuck into one of these stories the people, town and community it just feels like I’ve known them all forever. Homely.

This story is Primrose’s story a recent new arrival to the welcoming town. She has plenty keeping her busy and has settled in well. She is on the hunt to find some of her lost biological family, will she succeed? In all the mist she finds herself torn between two men who will she fall for? Callum or Sam? A beautiful ending. I liked Primrose’s character.

This is the perfect Autumn read. So get cosy under your covers, hot choc at the read and settle in for a brilliant read. Brilliantly written. A well deserved four stars. Highly recommend.

*BLOG TOUR* Confetti at the Little Duck Pond Cafe – Rosie Green ★★★★

Blurb; 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?

My Review; It’s good to be back in this beautiful little town. Yet again another brilliant read and insight into what the town has been doing while we were away. All the familiar characters and places are still there, greeting us back. It’s such a warm, friendly community and story that you don’t want to leave. Beautifully written.

It is a short story at just 142 pages, so can easily be devoured in one sitting. In this story we have a newcomer called Primrose who settles in perfectly hope to see more of her in the next book. There was a few chapters of doom and gloom, my heart nearly broke at several parts. But we see another beautiful ending, which made it all better.

I think I know where the next book is heading especially after that last chapter, so I have my fingers crossed. A well deserved four stars. Brilliant series. Highly recommend.

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

Blurb; Ellie’s dreams of opening a bakery in Sunnybrook are coming true and best friends Fen and Jaz are happily rallying round, helping her to plan a fabulous grand opening day. Everything in their garden seems to be rosy – until the arrival of a newcomer brings chaos to the village and tests relationships to the limit. Can the bakery succeed in the face of such upheaval? And more importantly, can firm friendships survive?

My Review; Ooops… So it seems I came into this series a little bit late as this is book five… Ot Oh. However, it did read perfectly fine as a standalone.

I absolutely loved this. Perfect town, characters, friendships and a little bit of romance. It is a beautifully written story. I throughally enjoyed it. It was like a little holiday for my mind. Being a short story it was lovely to sit and devour it. It’s one of those books you feel welcomed and part of the community, special.

I loved all the characters even Maddison towards the end, at first she did get on my nerves a little but she seemed to changed. The ending was utterly perfect! I was beside each of the characters and was with them through all their own choas and upset. I look forward to the next book in this series and going back to where it all began in book one. A well deserved four stars from me, highly recommend.
