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?

I voluntarily reviewed an arc of this book. All opinions are my own and no content may be copied. However, authors and publishers may use elements of my reviews for quotes.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Rosie Green’s latest novel: Bonfires and Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Café. I can’t get enough of this cosy romcom series by Rosie Green.  Bonfires and Hot Chocolate is our seventh visit to the village of Sunnybrook and our favourite eatery the Little Duck Pond Café.  Each novella in the series can be read as a standalone story as it focuses on a different character but the stories do follow on enabling you to witness the journeys of the characters we’ve begun to class as friends.  Please visit the author’s amazon page ( to find all the other books in the series.

Bonfires and Hot Chocolate is Primrose’s story.  Primrose is one of the newer residents to Sunnybrook which we read about her arrival in book 6 (Confetti at the Little Duck Pond Café) and we also learned of her wish to find her biological grandmother as Primrose’s late mother was adopted as a baby and she never got to find out who her real family was.

Primrose is a lovely, endearing character who hides her vulnerability behind a mask of bright hair and clothes.  With her emotions up in the air around the plight to find her grandmother a newcomer to the village also causes another emotional jolt and Primrose is very confused with which way to turn.  We follow Primrose on her journey to discovering her heritage and the path to true love.

Bonfires and Hot Chocolate is another charming return to our favourite café and the friends we’ve made along our reading journey.  Rosie Green has described an idyllic village setting embracing the changing of the seasons and you can feel the warmth of the autumnal vibes from the pages.  Endearing, romantic and full of cosy goodness.

Author Bio

A Bakery - Rosie Green Author PicRosie 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’.
