Book Blurb

Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start. But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship. So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention. Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)
Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?
Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building. Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Rosie Green’s latest novella: Sweet Pastries and Sourdough.

I can’t believe this is the 15th novella in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series by Rosie Green and I can honestly say each and every story has been a delight to read.

Each story in the series focuses on a different character and most often a new character to the area, therefore every novella can be read as a standalone. However, the characters we have been previously introduced to progress in the storylines and I would therefore highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order to appreciate the history, setting and gain an all round enjoyment of this gorgeous feel-good, uplifting series.

This story introduces us to Anita who has a young son and plenty of marriage woes. When Anita is offered a temporary job teaching baking at Ellie’s new school she jumps at the chance to escape her old life. Anita and son Rufus soon settle in but Anita has new health challenges to face which she is turning a blind eye to.

Moving on and making new friends is just the tonic Anita needs but complications of the heart soon develop and Anita struggles with her self-esteem.

Sweet Pastries and Sourdough is such a lovely instalment that delves into the life of a young woman having to cope with a few hurdles in life. Anita is such a warm hearted character and is very likeable. I loved her teaching in the bakery and it was giving me inspiration to try my hand at a few bakes.

Rosie Green has a great skill of blending seasoned characters with new and she makes the reader feel very welcomed into the everyday lives of the villagers. She understand people and deals with life’s journey sensitively.

Another gorgeous instalment in one of my favourite book series. It should however, come with a warning; arm yourself with a cup of tea and cake whilst reading, as if you didn’t want cake beforehand you soon will! 🙂

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.

A Kiss in the Snow (Little Duck Pond Cafe 13) written and self-published by Rosie Green is available NOW in ebook format.

Book Blurb

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…

I’m so pleased to be involved in the blog blitz celebrating and promoting the launch of book 13 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series: A Kiss in the Snow. Each instalment in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series can be read as a standalone as they are focused on one character however, they do feature characters from all the novels. I would therefore, suggest reading all the novels in the series in order to experience a wonderful feelgood reading experience as I’ve fully enjoyed this series and always look forward to more.

To learn more about the series please check out the author’s amazon page: https://amzn.to/2JWhMVX

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.

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…

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of book 12 in the popular Little Duck Pond Cafe series. I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order as to be frank it’s wonderful, you won’t be disappointed!

I have loved everything about the Little Duck Pond Cafe series and I’m hoping author, Rosie Green, will keep on writing lots of new stories for us. Can you get bored of a series, no I don’t think you can especially when it’s written with realistic characters, with heart, with humour and the setting is perfect with lots and lots of cake?!

This instalment focuses of Maddy’s story, Maddy is a complicated character and she is her own worst enemy. She loves dearly but doesn’t trust her own feelings and those of others and ends up ruffling a few feathers with her friends and loved ones along the way. Maddy is still heartbroken over her breakup with Jack and she’s desperate to prove him wrong and that she is good for him. Maddy also needs to uncover the truth about an important part of her life that has been kept hidden by her parents.

When Maddy finds out the truth about her parentage she goes on a journey of finding her birth father and becomes a little obsessed by this new information. With this shiny, new person in her life she becomes distracted and dismisses what she has held dear to her heart all this time and tempers become frayed between many.

Jack has also returned back in Maddy’s life but not in the way she wants and he has a sidekick in tow. Maddy is confused, distraught and is once again hellbent on destroying her chances of happiness.

Log Fires and Toffee Apple Cakes is filled with lots of soul searching for Maddy but it’s a fun filled romp of a read and has the heart of friendship and community at it’s centre.

But these are desperate times. And finding herself with a nightmare of a dilemma, fleeing her home town seems like the only way she can protect herself and those she loves.

The Cornish town of Pengully Sands holds happy childhood memories for Lucy and seems the perfect place to escape to, although having little money and no friends, life at first seems grim.

But a chance meeting with Madison and the rest of the Little Duck Pond Café girls, plus a decidedly attractive local guy who won’t take no for an answer, gives Lucy a glimmer of hope for the future. Could she really settle in Pengully Sands and make a living by selling her watercolours?

But just as life is starting to look a little rosier, it becomes clear that someone back home – the last person she ever wanted to see – has tracked her down…

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Book 11 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series; Lucy’s Great Escape.

The Little Duck Pond Cafe is one of my favourite series of feelgood fiction and Book 11 sees us return to Cornwall to Pengully Sands.  We briefly met Lucy, the shy artist, in the last novel (A Cornish Summer Holiday) but this is the chance to learn of her back story and why and how she ended up escaping her life in London to start afresh in Cornwall.

Lucy is still grieving the loss of her mum, it’s a year since her mum sadly passed away and life will never be the same again.  Lucy’s dad has become friendly with a woman called Eleanor and Lucy feels more at ease knowing her dad has found some happiness again.  However, since Eleanor has appeared on the scene little things have started happening making Lucy doubt her own thoughts and actions.  When Lucy can’t take anymore of her life at home with her dad and his new love she feels the only option is to to take herself away from the situation.  She goes to Cornwall in her late mum’s campervan to a place that holds so many lovely memories for her.

However, bad luck seems to have followed her to Cornwall and Lucy is desperate for money.  A kindly lady offers her work but is this offer too good to be true?  As Lucy’s new life in Cornwall unfolds we learn of how her vulnerability is targeted.  A chance encounter with Madison from the cafe gives her the much needed boost she requires and a handsome stranger helps her in more ways than one.

The Little Duck Pond Cafe series is wonderful, heart-warming, feelgood fiction with realistic storylines.  The author has created such a myriad of characters to fall in love with and leaving you with thoughts of hopefulness and joy.

Another gorgeous instalment in a must read feelgood series.

A Cornish Summer Holiday (Little Duck Pond Café Book 10) written and self-published by Rosie Green is available NOW in ebook and kindlueunlimited format.

Book Blurb
The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls are looking forward to a well-earned break in the Cornish seaside town of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Aggie, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and an ice-cream parlour only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even have a go themselves). But when they arrive, the girls find it’s not quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house.’ Gracie, who runs the ice-cream parlour, has problems of her own and the last thing she needs is a bunch of high-spirited girls arriving to disturb the peace and isolation she craves. And when a handsome stranger looks set to destroy her livelihood, it seems like the last straw. Will Gracie get her happy ending – and maybe even make friends with the girls next-door? This wasn’t the relaxing break the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls were expecting, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the holiday of a lifetime!

I love picking up a new book in the Little Duck Pond Café series and this new one by author, Rosie Green, is slightly different as the girls are on a road trip.  Ellie, Fen, Jaz, Katya and Maddison have packed their bags and are relocating, albeit temporarily, to the Cornish coast for some much needed R & R whilst the new bakery school is under construction.

Sylvia has arranged for the girls to stay in her sister’s cottage that is situated in a secluded cove in Cornwall.  The girls are excited for lots of relaxation and pampering but when they arrive the cottage is not quite to what they pictured.

Gracie has been living above the ice cream parlour for a month now and she’s feeling so despondent of her life and career.  She’s taken to hiding away in the flat feeling so down about everything.  Her heart has been broken into many pieces and her mind is so unsettled with thoughts of the past, present and future.  Noticing the arrival of the girls in the cottage next door brings back so many emotions and her thoughts become even more tangled.  Gracie is afraid to follow her heart and/or her head.

We follow the girls on their month long adventures in Cornwall with lots of fun, laughter, tears and fears.  We also learn more about Gracie and why her life has suddenly taken a different direction.

Wonderfully heart-warming as always from Rosie Green and I look forward to reading more about the new characters we’ve discovered in this instalment.  Perfect feelgood fiction.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Café by Rosie Green.

This is the 9th book/novella in the Little Duck Pond Café series and I wholeheartedly recommend reading the books in order as good story series are built with great foundations with book one bringing forth a wonderful community atmosphere with warm-hearted characters.  As each new layer of characters are formed the instalments grow and grow leaving us with a delightful series that still feels very realistic and relatable.

Book 9 is Molly’s story.  We briefly met Molly and her young daughter Eva in the last book.  Molly has begun to help Fen with the Food Bank deliveries.  Molly is also due to start her new part-time job at the café in the grounds of Brambleberry Manor.  She is so excited and already has ideas for the extra income; savings for a deposit for a new flat.  Molly is desperate to move out of the grotty flat she currently lives in but as money is very tight she fell on hard times and was left with little option but to rent a flat from an unscrupulous landlord.  A landlord that is proving more grotty than the flat, his constant harassment and sneers are making Molly very anxious which is now being noticed by little Eva.

Molly soon makes friends with all at Brambleberry Manor including a handsome young man who has a fascinating skill/trade of bookbinding and book restoration.  With Molly’s confidence at an all time low she is struggling to accept she needs help but the time for acceptance is met with wonderful displays of goodwill.

A story of friendship and kindness in abundance.  Another gorgeous instalment in the perfect feelgood series.

This series by Rosie Green is wonderful reading and would make a perfect Sunday evening TV mini series.  Real people with real problems all centred around the cosy charms of the village café.  I always look forward to re-visiting the Little Duck Pond Café.

When Jess Thornton’s dad was lost at sea, the family coped in different ways, alone in their grief. Now, her mum seems to be going off the rails and her sister, Isla, who moved to France, is now back and determined to get their old family home on the market. But the last thing Jess wants this Christmas is for renovations to start on the house. It’s sure to stir up all sorts of memories she’s desperate to avoid. And to make things worse, Isla appears to have hired the most obnoxious builder in the world to do the work. Jess could ignore the fact that women seem to be putty in his hands. But what she finds harder to ignore is the frisson she gets every time she squeezes past him in the mess that is now their beloved old home! Can the family finally start talking and find a way to move on from the past this Christmas?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Rosie Green’s latest novel: Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage.

This is the first standalone novel I’ve read by Rosie Green and it has the same captivation as her novellas.  From the first page I was welcomed into a family coming to terms with a loss that seems never ending but sadly life has to go on and Jess with her sister, Isla and mother Patricia were coping in their own ways.

When Jess finds out her sister Isla has arranged renovations to be undertaken on their old family home she is distraught for all the memories being demolished by a builder who seems to have no idea in the sentiments he’s destroying.  Jess is annoyed with Isla but when she turns up unexpected from her home and business in Paris alarm bells start ringing in Jess’ head.  Why has Isla started renovating the house?  Why has she returned home?  What is Isla hiding?

Jess is also concerned with the recent decline in her mother’s health and is worried that the not knowing what has happened to her father is eating away at them all.

Trying to find a light at the end of the dark tunnel they are all in Jess decides to revisit a craft she enjoyed doing with her father.  The whole process of creating something beautiful appears to bring Jess closer to her father’s memories and she starts to feel a certain thankfulness for the moments she shared with her father.  However, working in the studio at the old family home brings her into the close working environment with Seb the builder.  Jess soon realises her first impressions of Seb were not a true reflection of his character and there is more to Seb than meets the eye and a chemistry soon fizzles between them.

Snowflakes Over Moondance Cottage is everything you want in a festive read.  I was charmed and invested by the story and felt the emotions expressed with the loss the girls have faced. Moondance Cottage sounded so idyllic and I could totally understand Jess’ anguish with the building work.  The storyline was real and relatable, it will pull at your heart strings and leave you with a satisfied glow of warmth, love and above all else hope.

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 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 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rosie-Green/e/B07CZYV7DW?ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1&qid=1569419298&sr=8-1) 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’.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of book six in the Little Duck Pond Café series: Confetti At The Little Duck Pond Café.

Each instalment in The Little Duck Pond Café series is like visiting your best friends.  It is such a delightful series that includes stories that are light and dark, full of the highs and lows of life and love in a gorgeous village in the English countryside.  A village that has a duck pond as it’s focal point with a café adjacent to it.

I would highly recommend reading the books in the series in order to get a full sense of the setting, characters and the whole ambience of the series.  The books in the series in order are:

  • Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe
  • Summer at The Little Duck Pond Cafe
  • Christmas at The Little Duck Pond Cafe
  • Snowed in at The Little Duck Pond Cafe
  • A Bakery at The Little Duck Pond Cafe
  • Confetti at The Little Duck Pond Cafe

The prologue to this sixth instalment sets the scene to a traumatic event with Ellie waiting for news at the hospital bedside of a loved one.  We don’t know who the loved one is and are kept guessing for a good while.

This story centres around Ellie and Zac’s wedding preparations but plans do not run smoothly.  We are also introduced to a new character, Primrose, a young woman who has a sadness about her.

I’ve loved every single story in the series and really enjoy how each one continues on and we get to travel the journey of life with our much loved characters.  As always author Rosie Green injects much warmth and charm within the storyline and you feel very much involved in village life.  I hope the author continues to revisit the Little Duck Pond Café as I feel she has so much more to give to her readers.
