Thank you for stopping by I hope your weekend is off to a great start! I'm delighted to be sharing my review for Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café by Rosie Green as part of the blog tour today. There is also a fab giveaway taking part on Twitter and you can find details about that further down the post.
First of all let's take a look at the description for the book...
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?

This story was a real delight I really enjoyed getting to know Ellie and the lovely people who live in Sunnybrook. It's only a short story but in that time you meet Ellie who is having a terrible time of it what with family and romantic issues. That's where The Little Duck Café comes in and provides a break that is just what Ellie needs. The length of the story meant I read this book over one evening even though it is a shorter length I didn't feel like the story was rushed which was perfect.
There is a lovely heartwarming vibe to the story that is a perfect pick me up but there is also a more deeper emotional aspect to the story as you see Ellie and her mother interact. Even though the weather isn't very Spring like at the moment this book definitely made me smile and made me look forward to the months ahead!
I'm so happy that this will be a series and I get to re-visit Sunnybrook and the people who live there. Spring at The Little Duck Pond is a wonderful story with themes of new beginnings, friends, family and of course romance!
Five stars from me!

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.
Rosie’s brand new series of novellas is centred on life in a village café. The first, Spring at the Little Duck Pond Café, is out on March 22nd 2018.
