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?
The 9th book in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series and my new favourite!
Where do I start with my review for this gorgeous, wonderful book? I loved Molly and her daughter Eva. My heart went out to this woman who is trying to make ends meet to provide a roof over her and daughter’s heads. Eva is such a delight. She brings so much innocence into the story, being so young she is oblivious to the fact that they don’t have much. I could feel my heart strings tighten for Molly who so wants to be able to give her daughter even just the simple things that others take for granted.
The only person that I really disliked in this story is Jaxon, Molly’s landlord. He is a horrible character and made my skin crawl. Thankfully the other cast of characters that reside in Sunnybrook, swept me away with their friendships and kindness. The glimmer of romance was especially heart warming.
Lemon Drizzle Mondays At The Little Duck Pond Cafe had my attention from the title alone. If you are a cake lover, you will know what I mean! This is such a feel good story that left me feeling happy and positive. What a wonderful feeling for a book to leave you with. The author’s books never fail to touch my heart and put a smile on my face. I truly loved this book and if you want a light hearted read that will remind you of everything that is good in this world, then pick up a Rosie Green book today.
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Lemon Drizzle Mondays At The Little Duck Pond Cafe is available to purchase from Amazon.
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.
