Clara’s Secret Garden by Rosie Green / #Review #BlogTour @rararesources @Rosie_Green88

Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 23

When Clara Bowes transforms a wilderness of a garden, she isn’t expecting to reconnect with someone special from her past at the same time. Having Rory Angel in her life again is a dream come true. But life is never straight forward – especially in matters of the heart – and soon, a devastating revelation looks set to bring Clara’s hopes for the future crashing down around her. Will she find the strength to reach for her dreams?




I guess most of us know the feeling: having a crush on someone who does not really realise you exist.

When it happens to you when you are a teenager, you often are able to leave it behind you. You meet someone else who makes you happy and those first butterflies are forgotten about. Sometimes though life throws other things at you and years later you still are single.

And then HE comes back into your world and you know you have never been able to completely wipe him out of your head. Maybe now is the time to grow closer and make it work? Never say never, right?

‘I love it when a plan comes together…’ Famous words spoken by Hannibal, the leader of the A team, but sometimes lightning strikes on a perfect sunny day…

Clara has two options: plaster a smile on her face, move on and chase her dream or show her devastation and settle for less.

This is the first book of a trilogy in the series. The focus is on Clara, but there is a connection to the wonderful Little Duck Pond Café.

For those who are familiar with the series know the author always treats her readers to an array of emotions. They always seem very light hearted and in a way they most certainly are, but there is always an underlying more serious aspect included.

Once again a funny and at the same time sad story, but never forget it’s a feelgood book. You know what this mean, right. There is always a guarantee of a happy ending. 5 stars

Thank you
