A Kiss in the Snow (Little Duck Pond Cafe 13) written and self-published by Rosie Green is available NOW in ebook format.
After a cruel twist of fate sends her hurtling into a black hole of despair, Carrie is absolutely dreading the festive season – especially with sister, Krystle, being even more demanding of her time and energy than usual. But then friend Maddy offers Carrie a lifeline: the chance to get away from it all in a holiday cottage in the gorgeous little village of Silverbells. Deciding that a few weeks of tranquillity – reading, baking and going for long walks in the countryside – might just restore her mood, Carrie is quick to take up the offer. But on arriving, it very soon becomes clear that this break is going to be anything but peaceful!
An unwelcome houseguest proves unsettling enough – especially one who whistles loudly first thing in the morning and is far too cheerful for his own good – but finding herself drawn into the spooky mystery of her missing neighbour means there really isn’t much time for personal reflection. And then love comes knocking, and Carrie is forced to decide exactly where her heart lies.
Will this festive season be the disaster Carrie predicted? Or will Santa be good to her and deliver her heart’s desire? One thing’s for sure – this will be a Christmas Carrie will never, ever forget…

A Kiss in the Snow is Carrie’s story. We learned a little about Carrie in book 12 and it is lovely to be able to learn more about her. Carrie is a twin, she is quiet, reliable, kind and considerate and often feels overshadowed by her exuberant sister Krystle. Carrie has a secret crush and her friendship with her crush is becoming stronger but when her heart gets broken and her sister becomes more demanding she decides she needs to get away from them both.
Carrie travels to a remote village called Silverbells just over an hour away from her home. The village sounded wonderfully idyllic with little country cottages and a small community shop. Staying in a friends cottage sounded the perfect escape to reassess her life by clearing her head with country walks and baking cakes galore. However, Carrie didn’t expect to have a fellow houseguest who was also experiencing heartbreak. Her time in the village gave her opportunities to make new friends and also enemies. I think being an outsider she could see how the personalities of the villagers work and found herself many a time a listening ear for them all.
With the snowy weather now blocking the village to all incoming and outgoing vehicles the community and temporary residents had to learn to occupy themselves and help each other.
Author, Rosie Green has written another wonderful instalment in The Little Duck Pond Cafe series. I felt welcomed to Silverbells as much as Carrie and hope that the author will return to the residents we have grown to love and write a little spin-off series. Writing that warms your heart and is perfect cosy reading time material.
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. Follow Rosie on Twitter – https://twitter.com/Rosie_Green1988
