A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green #Review
Here is the latest in Rosie Green's series centred on the Little Duck Pond Cafe. I am delighted to be on the tour, as it is always lovely to meet up with those characters again.
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 . . .
Having read most of the Little Duck Pond novellas, I thoroughly enjoyed catching up with life in the village again. This story centred upon Zac and Ellie's wedding but in fact was told from the perspectives of Ellie, Fen and Jaz. There are obstacles on the way to the big day and another chance to share in the friendship and happiness which seems to settle in the air in Sunnybrook. As you discover, some characters have doubts and panics which have to be faced.
I also liked the minor characters who were in the background, usually in the cafe itself. Primrose's newly acquired relatives are a case in point. As with all the previous stories, there are hints of where the story can go next. I am looking forward to the next instalment of this heart-warming look at family and friendship.
In short: Another visit to the delightful Little Duck Pond Cafe.
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. The latest, 'Bonfires & Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe', is out now.
Watch out for 'A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe', which will be published in December 2019.
Rosie is also writing a full-length, standalone book for Christmas 2019, entitled 'Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage', which will be out in November.
A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe will be the seventh novella in the series. You can read my reviews here:
