Today I’m reviewing the latest in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series, many of which I’ve reviewed on the blog already. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for having me on the tour and sending me a copy of the book to review.
Blurb: With Zak and Ellie’s wedding day approaching, there’s high excitement in the pretty village of Sunnybrook, especially among the Little Duck Pond Café crew. Ellie is over the moon with her romantic surprise wedding gift from Zak, and Madison is promising to organise a hen party to remember. Everyone has high hopes for a magical Christmas Eve wedding celebration at gorgeous Brambleberry Manor. (Even Maisie-Moo has a sparkling new outfit.) But sometimes, even the best-laid plans can go wrong. And with the journey to the altar turning out to be rockier than expected, it’s going to take nothing short of a Christmas miracle to ensure a happy ending . .
My Review: This is a lovely, feel-good series and this latest installment is no exception. This time we have Zak and Ellie’s wedding fast approaching and the focus is again on the cafe and the main characters.
Although this is part of a series it is possible to read as a stand alone because there is enough back story included for anyone who hasn’t read any of the previous books.
Ellie, Fen and Jaz have there own concerns through this story. While the wedding is the main focus, the other concerns raised are given their own space and not just a cursory paragraph. The author deals with serious issues in a way that shows the gravity of them but doesn’t bring down the overall light tone of the story.
It was lovely revisiting the village and cafe again and seeing the characters progress. I know the next book is out soon and I’m looking forward to catching up with everyone again there.
About the author:
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 brand new series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe.
