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.

Author Bio

Rosie Green 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.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of book five in The Little Duck Pond Café series by Rosie Green.

This was such a delicious treat to return to The Little Duck Pond Café and it will leave you diving for the cake tin! Although each novella can be read as a standalone story I would highly recommend reading all the books in the series in order to fully appreciate each character and their story.

Rosie Green has created a lovely feel-good mini series with The Little Duck Pond Café and each novella focuses on one of the main characters story however, with A Bakery at the Little Duck Pond Café we are introduced to two new characters, Kate and Madison, who are both interested in the Bakery Assistant vacancy at Ellie’s new bakery that is attached to her café.  Kate is the main focus of this story and she’s still having doubts whether she wants this job but when she sees the bakery for the first time she soon falls in love with it and starts to think that this may be the new beginning that she needs.

Kate has had a traumatic childhood that she tried so hard to keep hidden from her loved ones.  But her heart has been battered recently and she’s still grieving over her late mother.  Worried over her past she develops a new persona to protect herself but she soon starts worrying that her past will catch up with her.

I loved the introduction of some new characters and I warmed to Kate instantly, her back story was quite heart-breaking and you are willing her to overcome these emotional scars.

As we read each new instalment in the series we grow to love the Duck Pond and the locals more and more.  Delightful, fun and just lovely.

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the launch of Rosie Green’s latest instalment in the Little Duck Pond Café series: Snowed in at the Little Duck Pond Café.

Snowed in at the Little Duck Pond Café was such a wonderful conclusion to what has been a gorgeous four part mini series by Rosie Green.  I’ve totally fallen in love with the village of Sunnybrook in the south east of England.  A small village with a café at the heart of the community that’s nestled in along a row of buildings opposite the little duck pond café.  A duck pond that has seen many romances bloom, has also witnessed a few catastrophes and has given comfort to some lost souls.

Snowed in at the Little Duck Pond Café continues after we left our friends Ellie, Jaz and Fen at Christmas.  With preparations for the New Year Party and Fen’s regional heat in a baking competition life is rolling along nicely until a big snow storm hits the village.  As much as the joy of seeing the village blanketed in a beautiful winter whiteness it brings so much more with it.  Chaos soon begins in the three friends lives and time is of the essence if the girls are to fulfil their dreams.

This was another delightful instalment in the Little Duck Pond Café series.  We had relationship woes, family struggles, catastrophe and chaos, drama and heroic escapades.  But what delighted me the most was the whole sense of community spirit which I felt in abundance.

What a wonderful gift for someone to buy them a kindle and pre-load it with a gorgeous feel-good series like this.

Product Details

Fen has always hated being the centre of attention.
She loves her new job, working behind the scenes at the Little Duck Pond Cafe and baking the scrumptious cakes that have helped its reputation soar. But frankly, she’d rather scrub the public toilet floor with a toothbrush than have to come out and talk to the customers.
She’s always been happy to stay in the background as long as she has a good supply of books to escape into. That’s her kind of romance – the fictional sort where she can read about other people taking a chance on love, but she doesn’t have to risk her own heart.
But that was before Ethan Fox arrived in the village and turned her world upside down. Ethan is a leading light in the local amateur dramatics theatre company and Fen knows he’s way out of her league.
But when the popular village Christmas pantomime hits a crisis, Fen and Ethan find themselves thrown together. Can Fen overcome her shyness and find the courage to step on stage and save the day?

Christmas at the Little Duck Pond Cafe Full Tour Banner

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating and promoting the third instalment in Rosie Green’s four book series centred around the Little Duck Pond Café.  Each book is of a novella size and they are all perfect books to cosy up with.  I would wholeheartedly recommend reading all the books in order as the characters from each story do crop up in forthcoming editions and you then get a sense of involvement in the characters you have learned to love.  The books in the series 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 Café (due out middle of November)

Picture the scene: it’s a cold blustery day your chores are done and it’s now time to relax in your favourite comfy chair, a cuppa (maybe cake :)) and a cat curled up on your lap.  The perfect book accompaniment would be the latest instalment in Rosie Green’s Little Duck Pond Café series; Christmas at the Little Duck Pond Café.  I did just this …

I loved returned to the village and to the friends I have learned to love at the cafe.  This is Fen’s story.  Fen is the character in the background that is the star baker for the café, she’s also the friend you need to have your back.  Fen is a hopeless romantic and when Ethan invites her to join the local amateur dramatics group her fear of the unknown is overshadowed by her wanting to get to know Ethan more and have the opportunity to work closely with him.  Fen has had a massive crush on Ethan since she met him in the summer when he performed a Regency Romance show.  Fen has set her heart on Ethan, almost likening him to one of her dashing heroes in her books.

Fen receives some well-guided self-esteem boosting advice from a friend, a source she wouldn’t have expected to receive this much needed encouragement.  This was another young person that quietly get’s on with his job but acknowledges what’s going off all around him.

With Fen starting to feel a little more self-assure and the promise of attraction on the horizon the other girls at the café are suddenly having romance woes.

Rosie Green has created another wonderful instalment in The Little Duck Pond Café series.  They are books to fall in love with, to warm your heart and soul.  They are also books that are packed with plenty of drama that invokes many emotions.  I’m really enjoying this series, it’s like a friendship in a book!

Jaz Winters stuck a pin in a map and fled to the village of Sunnybrook, looking for a brand new life – and after a rocky start, it’s beginning to look as if she made the right decision. Her blossoming friendship with Ellie and Fen has seen her through some dark times, and she’s managed to land two jobs – waitressing at The Little Duck Pond Café and working as a weekend tour guide at Brambleberry Manor, the country house that’s been in Fen’s family for generations.

Sure, life isn’t totally perfect. There’s the irritating know-it-all guy who keeps popping up on her manor tours, for a start. He seems determined to get under Jaz’s skin whether she likes it or not. But she supposes he’s a small price to pay for the relative peace she’s found, living in Sunnybrook.

But just as Jaz is beginning to think rosier times are on the horizon, a shock encounter looks set to shatter her fragile happiness.

Will she be forced to flee from Sunnybrook and everyone she’s grown so fond of? Or will she find the strength to stand her ground and finally face up to the nightmares of the past?

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 next instalment in the new mini series by Rosie Green.  This novella is part of a trilogy, the books in the series are:

  • Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café (you can find my review here
  • Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café
  • Winter at The Little Duck Pond Café

I felt truly welcomed back to the village of Sunnybrook and especially to The Little Duck Pond Café.  It was lovely to rekindle our reading relationships with the friends we made back in Book One: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café.  We catch up with their comings and goings in the village that sounds so pretty and idyllic.  Book Two is Jaz Winter’s story.  Each book is novella in size and I would thoroughly recommend reading each story in the series in order to experience the full enjoyment from the trilogy.

After her relationship with Grant dramatically falls apart Jaz has to find a new home and she randomly decides on the village of Sunnybrook.  Keeping her past a secret isn’t easy but she feels it’s the only way to protect something she holds dear to her.  Her new life in the village is going well with new friends and work at the café and with the possibility of a change in career direction on the horizon Jaz is feeling a little more settled.

However, her past cannot be kept hidden forever and when Jaz fears for the wellbeing of someone in her past she has no option to step back into her old life.  With the help of her new friends Jaz tries to keep control of her old life.

Another lovely instalment in this heart warming mini series by Rosie Green.  A story filled with endearing comical moments, blossoming friendships and romance.

Product Details (as per amazon page)

Fleeing from a romance gone wrong, Ellie Farmer arrives in the pretty little village of Sunnybrook, hoping for a brand new start that most definitely does not include love! Following an unscheduled soak in the village duck pond, she meets Sylvia, who runs the nearby Duck Pond Café. Renting the little flat above the café seems like the answer to Ellie’s prayers. It’s only for six months, which will give her time to sort out her life, far away from cheating boyfriend Richard.

But is running away from your past ever really the answer?

Clashing with the mysterious and brooding Zack Chamberlain, an author with a bad case of writer’s block, is definitely not what Ellie needs right now. And then there’s Sylvia, who’s clinging so hard to her past, she’s in danger of losing the quaint but run-down Duck Pond Café altogether.

Can Ellie find the answers she desperately needs in Sunnybrook? And will she be able to help save Sylvia’s little Duck Pond Café from closure?

I am so pleased to be involved in the blogtour celebrating the launch of Rosie Green’s novella Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café.

I’m a sucker for a feel-good heart-warming romance and this novella by Rosie Green ticked all the boxes for me.  There are times when you need a cosy story and Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café came to the rescue.

This is my first introduction to the work of Rosie Green and I was enchanted by her description of this charming little village with it’s focal point of a duck pond and café.  The café has brought comfort to it’s elderly owner, Sylvia, after she lost her dear husband.  When Ellie visits the area on a secret mission she is heartened by Sylvia’s kindness.  With Ellie suffering a broken heart and with the added stress of her sick mother Sylvia offers a proposition to Ellie, one that feels like the answer to her woes.

This novella was full of wonderfully warm characters and scenes that charm you.  I was cocooned by this delightful story and look forward to more from The Duck Pond Café.
