Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Café
by Rosie Green
Today I’m thrilled to join the blog tour for the latest addition in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series by Rosie Green.
Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for a copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
Molly Hooper has a secret. It haunts her dreams and casts a dark shadow over life with her gorgeous three-year-old daughter, Eva. Arriving in Sunnybrook has given her a glimpse of sunshine. The Little Duck Pond Cafe crew seem so welcoming and there’s even the chance of a new job. Baking delicious cakes has always taken Molly to a happy place, so the job – at the glorious Brambleberry Manor Cafe – might just be perfect for her. It would mean she and little Eva could finally put down some roots at last.
But is Sunnybrook the sanctuary Molly is searching for? Or will the past come back to haunt her, wherever she hides?
This is the ninth novella in The Little Duck Pond Café series. These short reads are always well written with interesting characters and a ‘feel-good’ theme which really raises your spirits.
In Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe, we meet Molly, a young single mum who hopes her fortunes have changed when she secures herself a job at the cafe in the grounds of Brambleberry Manor. Unfortunately, the cafe is struggling so the staff are asked for ideas to get the customers flocking in. Molly comes up with the idea to offer a free slice of Lemon Drizzle cake to anyone who pledges a simple act of kindness and soon the new promotion is put into place.
There is a chance for romance to reappear in Molly’s life in the form of Matt who runs a bookbinding business next to the cafe. Sadly, nothing is ever easy and Molly has her menacing landlord to contend with and a daughter who dreams of a birthday party like all of her friends. Luckily Molly has true friends who help her out in their own unique way.
With a theme of kindness, this book wraps you up in a cosy blanket and gives a wonderful warm feeling …another winner from Rosie Green.
Author Bio –
Rosie 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 series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now. Rosie has also written a full-length, standalone book, ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’, out now.
