Today is my stop on the blog tour for A Cornish Summer Holiday by Rosie Green, which is Book 10 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series.
I loved my trip to Cornwall whilst reading this book as it reminded me of the trips we took when I was a child and the summer days wandering the beaches and eating cornish pasties.
This is the 10th book in this series but the first time I’ve met these lovely ladies and I really enjoyed it and it reads great as a stand alone if you haven’t started the series yet. A Cornish Summer Holiday is a lovely easy read oozing with brilliant characters that all bring a little something to the story.
I love a home renovation so the storyline really appealed to me, I love how the girls got stuck in with the renovations armed with colour charts inbetween their visits to the beach. As I continued to read this book I enjoyed how the backstory trickled in of the cottages and who had previously lived in them and the discoveries they made along the way that led to new friendships being forged.
A brilliant read to escape to the sandy dunes in Cornwall and feel like your taking a mini holiday and I look forward to reading more of this series and getting to know more about these kind hearted ladies.
The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls are looking forward to a well-earned break in the Cornish seaside town of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Aggie, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and an ice-cream parlour only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even have a go themselves).
But when they arrive, the girls find it’s not quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house.’ Gracie, who runs the ice-cream parlour, has problems of her own and the last thing she needs is a bunch of high-spirited girls arriving to disturb the peace and isolation she craves. And when a handsome stranger looks set to destroy her livelihood, it seems like the last straw. Will Gracie get her happy ending – and maybe even make friends with the girls next-door? This wasn’t the relaxing break the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls were expecting, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the holiday of a lifetime!

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.
Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.
Rosie is currently writing a full-length book, ‘Lucy’s Great Cornish Escape’, which – in a fun twist – will feature favourite characters from the Little Duck Pond Café series.
