Mackenzie Morris, newest recruit at the Little Duck Pond Café, is the perfect addition to the team. But beneath her smiles, Kenzie is hiding a dark secret. It’s the reason she fled to Sunnybrook, desperate for a fresh start that would help to lay the ghosts that haunt her.
The challenge of turning her hobby into a business is a welcome distraction, and to her relief, she finds that her range of quirky pottery mugs and vases appear to be in demand. Alone and scared when she arrived, she’s slowly making friends and starting to feel as if she belongs. Meeting a lovely guy called Aidan seems to confirm this and it looks as if love might be on the horizon.
But then Kenzie makes a devastating discovery that threatens to crush her new-found happiness. Aidan is the one person she yearns to confide in. He’s also the one person who can never know the truth . . .
This series is like your favourite soap. Even though it focuses on new characters, I love the familiarity of the setting and the minor characters. It’s a great way of keeping up with the characters we’ve come to know and love as well as meeting new ones.
Kenzie is our protagonist who hasn’t long moved into the area. Whilst she is warm and friendly, there is something from her past that she is running away from. The story alternates between Kenzie and her budding friendship with Aidan and the build up to what she is running away from and trying to keep secret.
As with previous books in the series, I loved Jingle Bells in June and devoured it all to quickly. The blurb doesn’t give much reference to anything Christmassy but it all becomes clear why the author has gone for this title and the story left me with a wonderfully warm glow. Rosie Green is my go to author whose books are a great pick me up that leave me feeling uplifted and happy. Very highly recommended!
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for an invite to be part of the blog tour. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
Rosie Green 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 on life in a village café. The first two stories in the series are: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café.
