Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake at the Little Duck Pond Cafe: (Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 12) by Rosie Green

Today I am really excited to share my review for this lovely autumnal read by Rosie Green, as soon as I saw the book title all I could think of was open fires and toffee apples.

My Review

I am loving reading about the wonderful ladies who run the Little Duck Pond Cafe and on this visit we got to spend more time with Maddy. She is a complicated member of the group who we get to observe and see how life is unravelling from her perspective as well as that of her friends.

I wasn’t sure on whether I liked Maddy’s character as I read, she lost her temper quickly and came across as selfish. However the more time I spent with her the more I could see how lost she was becoming and how this was impacting upon her relationships with those closest to her.

I loved the last 20% of this story and how it all pulled together, it warmed my heart and left me with that lovely fuzzy feeling you get after observing real friendship. Another wonderful addition to this series and I look forward to reading the next instalment, hopefully in the very near future.

Book Blurb

Get set for a wonderful celebration of autumn with all your favourite characters at the Little Duck Pond Cafe!

An autumn fair is coming to Sunnybrook, much to the delight of the villagers. But for Madison, whose personal life seems to be spinning out of control, a roller-coaster is the last thing she needs – especially when it’s her emotions at stake.

Can she convince the delectable Jack that their relationship is worth another shot? Or has their romance ground to a permanent halt like a faulty big wheel? Will she solve the mystery of the missing name on her birth certificate? Or will her discoveries take her on a journey even bumpier than the dodgem cars? One thing’s for sure. Madison is going to need more than a fairground fortune teller to find the answers to her questions, if she’s going to ‘waltz-er’ into the happiest of sunsets…

Meet Rosie Green

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, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape’, is out now.

Rosie will be revisiting the Little Duck Pond Café with a beautiful story of love and friendship at Christmas time, entitled A Kiss in the Snow, out in October 2020.

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
