So excited to be visiting the gang at the Little Duck Pond Cafe again, thanks so much to RaRaResources for inviting me to take part in the blog tour, and thank you to the author for the ARC. Here is my review:
Primrose Wilkins arrived in Sunnybrook with a burning desire to find the family she’s never known. But after a heart-breaking false start, she’s beginning to have second thoughts. Can she find the courage to battle on in her quest? And with her romantic life at an all-time low, will meeting the intriguing and attractive Callum Davy be just what she needs to renew her faith in love?
Meanwhile, Fen is also finding it hard to be brave. She’s made it through to the final of TV show ‘Battle of the Bakes’ (thanks to Ellie entering on her behalf), but she’s always shied away from being in the spotlight. How will Fen cope now that she’s a famous ‘celebrity’, recognised in the street everywhere she goes?
What does TWG think?
Gosh, it’s been ages since I last had my Rosie Green fix! I had a horrible feeling that I wasnt going to be able to slot back into the storyline with the latest installment, however I needn’t have worried as it was like I had never been away.
Primrose is still adamant about finding her family, despite not having the greatest start. As she goes about her day in the village, she cant help but feel a little bit jealous seeing everyone with their loved ones. I mean, family is what you make it really, isn’t it? I couldn’t help crossing my fingers that Primose found a family to call her own. In the grand scheme of things, it really isn’t too much to ask.
Primose wasn’t the only one feeling a little disheartened – Fen was finding it difficult to come to terms with her new found fame thanks to her stint on a TV show….not that it was her choice mind.
Just like the previous instalments, Maisie and her little sidekick, Maisie Moo, were as hilarious as ever. They are such a fun pairing who bring much hilarity and love to the village. I genuinely don’t think that the story would be the same without either of them.
There is a lot to this storyline than bonfires and hot chocolate! Rosie Green is a natural at making her stories come to life as though us readers are seeing things happen directly in front of our eyes. ‘Bonfires a Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’ may be novella sized, but it still packs a punch. As well as Primose’s family issues, the village of Sunnybrook has plenty of other colourful characters being put under the spotlight this time round.
I throughly enjoyed being able to lose myself in Rosie Green’s latest cosy read. From start to finish I was hooked by such wonderful characters, all of who had such heartwarming stories to tell (in their own way, naturally). This is one series I never want to see end – please can someone make the Little Duck Pond Cafe a real place to visit?! I loved it.
