Summer at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green @Rosie_Green1988 #BlogTour @rararesources #Review

Thank you for stopping by on this lovely Sunday morning! I'm delighted to be taking part in the blog tour for Summer at the Little Duck Pond Café by Rosie Green and sharing my review today.

First of all let's take a look at the description for the 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 – waitress 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 it’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?
This novella is part of a trilogy:
Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café
Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café
Winter at The Little Duck Pond Café
Purchase from Amazon UK -

Well it was lovely to be back in Sunnybrook and catching up with all the characters although don't worry too much as it would probably work just as well as a standalone. In this story we meet Jaz who has escaped to Sunnybrook hoping to start afresh. Along the way she makes new friends and begins to reclaim some happiness.

This is a delightful short story that was lovely to sit down with one sunny afternoon it didn't take me long to read so if you are short of time it's pretty perfect. The pace of the story is quick with friendships and even a dash of romance to make you smile. There is a good mix of lighter and more serious issues that add a certain depth to the story that definitely sets it apart. Some of my favourite of parts were set at Brambleberry Manor along with seeing Jaz and Harry's interactions. 

I'm looking forward to reading the next novella in the series and seeing how everything will end.

A sweet and heartwarming summer story!

Four 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. Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café, published on 18th June 2018, follows the first in the series, Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café.
