Thrilled to be part of the blog tour for this little gem of a book! Many thanks to Rachel for my invitation and to Rosie green for her lovely story💜🦆
Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café
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?
4 Fabulously Fluffy Stars🦆 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Absolutely adored this little gem of a book… this is the second book in the series, but I did not read the first book and I had absolutely no problem following…. however I am going to go back and read the first book and I am eagerly awaiting the Christmas book!
Jaz is more than happy to leave her tool of a boyfriend Grant, however she does not want to leave his little girl Titch…. so she sticks a pin in the map and finds herself in lovely Sunnybrook…. far enough to not run into anyone that would tell Grant that she has not gone far, yet close enough to see the little girl she loves and worries about…. I really liked Jaz and her devotion to Titch… I loved her friendship with Fen and Ellie…. these are three girls I would love to have lunch with especially if it was at the Little Duck Pond Café….
This book was filled with friendship, food, laughs, and a touch of romance… The romance in this book was sweet and settle…. really the perfect balance in a short novella…. I have to say the author did a fabulous job packing a lot into such a small package…. the character development was spectacular the plot was well paced and well developed…. The perfect book to pick up one afternoon when you want to escape reality and visit Sunnybrook….
Strongly recommend… this is a fabulous summer read that you will enjoy in the sun or in the air conditioning….

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.
