Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 10
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!
I enjoy this series thoroughly and in my opinion the author brought it to the next level with this 10th part.
There was always a lot of romance in the books. There was always a lot of friendship. There was always space for some funny bits and some heartbreaking ones. Those things are still in attendance , but in this story the author adds some mystery and I loved that too.
This time we are not visiting Sunnybrook but we are on a little summer holiday in Cornwall together with the main characters from the previous books and of course we are introduced to some new ones too. New ones that I hope we will meet again in (the) next book(s), because I really want to know how their story will develop further.
What more can I say? It was a great and fun series yesterday, it is a great and fun series today and it will be a great and fun series tomorrow.
In case you had not noticed: I am a big fan. 5 stars

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.
