Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 15
Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start. But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship. So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention. Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)
Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?
Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building. Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…
Well, it’s true what they say, time does fly when you are having fun. Not only because I was reading this great sweet story, but also because I cannot imagine this is already book 15 in the series.
You would think you would tire of visiting Sunnybrook so many times and meeting the same characters over and over again, but no way I want this series to end.
The characters the author creates are wonderful and you want to know what goes on in their lives. Apart from that she also introduces new protagonists which keeps the fire burning hot. 😊
This book made me smile more than once. It’s full of banter and I love it. There were a few sad teras thrown in the mix, but lots and lots of happy tears too.
Facing facts and learning to live with them, broken families and new ones being created are the backbones of this adorable book but there is more of course. This is only a sneak peek/ 😉
I am thinking about creating my own Fred as well. I can hear you wondering what I mean by that. Well, if you want to find out, you will have to sit down and get yourself lost in this story too. 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.
