Is there anything better than a Duck Pond Cafe book to brighten up your day? (Gosh today is a good day for bright unputdownable books!!!!)
What they say: Wedding fever is in the air in the village of Sunnybrook. With Ellie and Zak’s Big Day on the horizon, the sun is shining brightly on the Little Duck Pond Cafe community. But when dark clouds begin to roll in from more than one direction, several close relationships look to be under threat. Will the wedding of the year actually take place at all?
The Review: It is ironic that in the last post I talked about covers and here we are again, a mesmerising, stare at and continuously smile at cover that just lifts you! And the book is no different! There are times you hear people say ‘this series gets better and better’ but oh my wordy word this is totally the case here!
Ellie is under pressure trying to pull off wedding preparations in an extremely short time and find the venue of her dreams while at the same time looking after lovely (oh how I love her!) little Maisie and their latest addition. There is non stop drama, in particular what struck me was her lovely (again, oh how I love her!) mother Rose, whose memory is failing further (chills down my spine as I say this, it was done so well and really affected me).
There is a large host of characters here, to be honest, one or two that I know we should love and who we’ve heard the story of and in one case we probably will be in the future, but who I still couldn’t really warm to and then funnily enough someone I knew I shouldn’t warm to but whose story I really want to hear (Madison! And yes, I know!!)
As with the other book I reviewed today I loved this book so much, the ups the downs, the romance (some of it a surprise) the little mysteries (what’s going on in Brighton?), and the fact that I couldn’t put it down. Cannot wait for the next book. Thanks so much to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for allowing me to be on this lovely blog tour and for the book in return for an honest review.
Rosie Green has been scribbling stories ever since she was little. Back then they were rip-roaringadventure 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 romanticcomedies 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 brand new series of novellas is centred on life in a village café. Confetti at the Little DuckPond Cafe will be the sixth in the series
