Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 11
Lucy never wanted to abandon her friends and family, and travel to the other side of the country to start a new life. And all without telling anyone where she was going. But these are desperate times. And finding herself with a nightmare of a dilemma, fleeing her home town seems like the only way she can protect herself and those she loves.
The Cornish town of Pengully Sands holds happy childhood memories for Lucy and seems the perfect place to escape to, although having little money and no friends, life at first seems grim.
But a chance meeting with Madison and the rest of the Little Duck Pond Café girls, plus a decidedly attractive local guy who won’t take no for an answer, gives Lucy a glimmer of hope for the future. Could she really settle in Pengully Sands and make a living by selling her watercolours?
But just as life is starting to look a little rosier, it becomes clear that someone back home – the last person she ever wanted to see – has tracked her down…
I will never tire of this series! I already said in my review of the previous part that the author had added a hint of mystery to her story and she does it again. I really really like her approach and even though these last 2 books do not take place in and around the Little Duck Pond Café, the main characters do play a part. Their role is smaller now in this story.
The focus is on Lucy. We already met her briefly in the 10th book and her background story is revealed. I can assure you it’s a great one although it’s also a sad one, but fear not there is always a silver lining for some and karma marks the spot for others.
Let me repeat myself for the umpteenth time: great series, wonderful and loveable characters (well, most of them anyway lol), fantastic writing style and entertaining stories. Dipping my hand in my bag of stars and pulling out the 5 star paddle.

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 series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.
Rosie has also written a full-length, standalone book, ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’, out now.
