Today I’m reviewing another book in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for having me on the tour and sending me a copy of the book to review.
When you suddenly find yourself loveless and penniless, how on earth do you make it through? An emotional but ultimately uplifting story of one woman’s struggles to get by, and the special someone who brings hope and happiness to light up her world…

This is another lovely read from the Little Duck Pond Cafe series. It’s not all sweetness and light in this story, there’s a lot of emotional and stressful moments in it but the way that it’s written gives it an overall feeling of light and hope. In this story we follow Jen, and her son Luke, as they are starting over after their lives are turned upside down.
We watch Jen as she starts to rebuild her life, dealing with sudden, drastic change that a lot of people will be able to relate to in some way. Some of the decisions she makes are not the best but it’s easy to understand why she makes them given her circumstances. There’s an interesting character called Ron, who I’m not saying more on (no spoilers here!) but he was a fun and quirky addition to the story.
There’s a lot of upheaval in this story but, as with all the Little Duck Pond Cafe books there’s also friendship and that’s what shines through the whole story. It was a joy to read and I’m already looking forward to more of these books.
Rosie’s series of novellas is centred around life in a country village cafe. ‘Clara’s Secret Garden’, the first in a trilogy telling Clara’s story, was published in August 2022, and ‘A Winter Wish’ and ‘Clara’s Christmas Magic’, followed. Look out for ‘The Cheesecake Challenge’, out in April 2023.
