If you love all the colours of autumn, you’re sure to warm to this uplifting story of love, loss and starting over.
Primrose Wilkins arrived in Sunnybrook with a burning desire to find the family she’s never known. But after a heart-breaking false start, she’s beginning to have second thoughts. Can she find the courage to battle on in her quest? And with her romantic life at an all-time low, will meeting the intriguing and attractive Callum Davy be just what she needs to renew her faith in love?
Meanwhile, Fen is also finding it hard to be brave. She’s made it through to the final of TV show ‘Battle of the Bakes’ (thanks to Ellie entering on her behalf), but she’s always shied away from being in the spotlight. How will Fen cope now that she’s a famous ‘celebrity’, recognised in the street everywhere she goes?
So Rosie Green is back with her latest instalment which is set in autumn. Perfect timing!
How I’ve missed Sunnybrook and was so glad to be back as it’s Primrose’s turn to be the main character in the spotlight. We briefly get to know her in the previous novella to this one but worry not if you haven’t read it as it works well as a stand alone.
Primrose is a great character who is in a bit of turmoil as she tries to find her blood relatives. Being in Sunnybrook you are never far away from a friendly face. This is why I love these novellas as we get to catch up with previous main characters in the series and see what they are getting up to. As well as being introduced to some new ones.
Bonfires & Hot Chocolate at The Little Duck Pond Cafe is a fabulous novella set at just the right time of year where you will want to snuggle up on the sofa, with a hot drink and turn off from the real world outside. You get a real warm and cosy feeling inside when reading these books as they are the perfect feel good reads, guaranteed to put a smile on your face. A compelling and at times emotional story.

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 brand new series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Bonfires & Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.
Watch out for ‘A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, which will be published Christmas 2019.
Rosie is also writing a full-length, standalone book for Christmas 2019, entitled ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’.
