Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 18
The chance to spend a night ghost-hunting alone with Hudson Holmes at Brambleberry Manor seems like a dream come true for Ruby Watkiss. Maybe, she thinks, this is their chance to get closer? But when mysterious goings-on start happening which have nothing to do with the spirit world, the pair are catapulted off on another sleuthing adventure. And as the snow starts to fall and emotions are rising at the Little Duck Pond Cafe, Ruby is faced with a double challenge. Can she be braver than she’s ever been, in order to rescue something very close to her heart? And can she convince Hudson that Christmas really can be the most wonderful time of the year?
A lovely story that takes us to Sunnybrook once again. After reading it, I checked. Nope, still don’t like Christmas very much. LOL. But this does not mean that I don’t enjoy reading a few books about that time of the year. Just not too many. I have to select carefully and only pick the ones that I know I am going to love. I knew I could not go wrong devouring this one. 🙂
I love this group of girls. They always look out for each other and don’t stop before every member of the group has found the same kind of happiness the others have too. They don’t away from little scheming but all for the good cause of course.
In the two previous books, the author has drizzled a delicious cosy mystery sauce over the whole and now she has added another new ingredient. When they are all mixed together they result in a finger licking good story.
Conclusion: This 18th instalment is as good as the other I have read up till now. Don’t hesitate. You will love this snug village and its wonderful villagers.
Loved it. 5 stars
