Another one I didn’t think that I would read in time due to WiFi issues, but thankfully this is a novella so my speed reading came in super handy! I am back visiting the gang in Sunnybrook today as I review Rosie Green’s latest read. Many thanks to RaRaResources for the tour invite and the ARC. Here is my review:
The biggest snowfall in years has blanketed Sunnybrook, cutting the village off from the outside world. For Fen, who finds herself snowed in at The Little Duck Pond Cafe, it’s little more than a minor inconvenience. Her love life is finally running smoothly; it looks as if she’s found the perfect man for her.
But then a shocking secret threatens to destroy Fen’s new-found happiness.
Will being snowed in be the final straw? Or will Fen find a way through the snowdrifts to the perfect love?
What does TWG think?
Oh, Fen! Fen, Fen, Fen!! I’m literally shaking my head right now, no joke. Don’t worry, no spoilers, but reallyyyyyy?! Look, if you’re new to this series then I suggest you go back and read the books in order otherwise things may get a little confusing, although Rosie Green does talk about previous storylines ever so briefly. The reason I say read the books in order is because of Rob, Fen’s friend and a man who is good with his hands. Mind out of the gutter folks, he’s a carpenter!!
I am flabbergasted at Fen’s actions because in all honesty, I don’t know how she kept her cool and let things conclude in the way that they did. It’s easy for me to say but I certainly wouldn’t have! I actually found her a little bit weak because of it and, even though I tried to see things from the other side, I found the whole thing underhanded. Good on Rosie Green for writing characters to get people talking though!
‘The Little Duck Pond Cafe’ isn’t the main attraction in this book, well, I didn’t feel like it was and it really needed to be, instead there was a lot of emphasis on Fen’s actions and reactions. I love being ‘around’ ‘Lellie’ and Maisie as I find their personalities so comforting and homely.
Even though I enjoyed the latest visit to Sunnybrook, it wasn’t my favourite in the series but I certainly appreciated the fun which the storyline had to offer.
Rosie Green’s story telling does not disappoint – can I live in Sunnybrook please?!?!
About the author.
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 two stories in the series are: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café.
