Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 9
Molly Hooper has a secret. It haunts her dreams and casts a dark shadow over life with her gorgeous three-year-old daughter, Eva. Arriving in Sunnybrook has given her a glimpse of sunshine. The Little Duck Pond Cafe crew seem so welcoming and there’s even the chance of a new job. Baking delicious cakes has always taken Molly to a happy place, so the job – at the glorious Brambleberry Manor Cafe – might just be perfect for her. It would mean she and little Eva could finally put down some roots at last. But is Sunnybrook the sanctuary Molly is searching for? Or will the past come back to haunt her, wherever she hides?
Kindness means doing something nice for someone else or why not treat yourself once in a while, but often people are mostly looking out for number one with little or no regard to the ones surrounding them. Being kind does not have to cost any money, but it can do a world of good. It made me stop and think 🙂
Kindness is very important in the 9th part of this gorgeous series. I liked the quotes from famous people that were added. They were lovely and made me stop and think again. 🙂
Sometimes you don’t talk about your problems because you are ashamed or you think you have to solve everything by yourself, but real friends don’t judge you and the only thing they want to do is help. When you are at your lowest and are desperate, they are the ones to reach out to you and help you get up again.
In this book the focus was less on the Little Duck Pond Café, but this certainly does not mean that the ‘crew’ were not there to chip in when needed.
We already met Molly and her daughter before and now the author gives Molly the opportunity to share their story and let me tell you it was not always a very pleasant one …
Everytime I read the title, it makes my mouth water. Time to go and dig up the recipe for this delicious cake and treat myself to a slice. 🙂
Yet again a lovely, heartwarming story, drizzled with heartbreaking and funny parts. 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.
