Sun, Sea & Strawberry Shortcake: (Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 22) by Rosie Green @rararesources @Rosie_Green88

Book Description:

It was meant to be a gloriously romantic getaway for Ruby and Hudson. That was the plan, anyway. But then friends start inviting themselves along, lured by the idea of unwinding in a chocolate-box pretty cottage, enjoying the promenade and the gorgeous beaches, and soaking up the sun. With Ellie, Jaz, Katja and Madison popping up around every corner, a work emergency for Hudson plus another sinister mystery to solve, will the lovebirds ever find time to indulge their desire for sun, sea and . . . strawberry shortcake?

My Thoughts:

Two of my favourite characters are back in the next book in this wonderful series! I have loved Ruby and Hudson from previous books and have been dying to be back with them again and it was well worth the wait. Unfortunately for the pair, a romantic getaway seems to have them spending even less time together of which sees Ruby getting caught up in very odd going ons.

The story flicks between Ruby and Jaz, of which if you are a fan of this series then neither character will be a stranger, although as always, by the time you finish with one of these novels, they all feel like good friends. With Jaz, there is a lot of emotional stuff going on in her life and I wanted to give her a big hug. Ruby on the other hand, well things are never dull and there is lots on mystery and mayhem with some shocking twists. All I will say is that this story proves that your gut instinct is never wrong!

Sun, Sea and Strawberry Shortcake was every bit as lovely as the title would have you believe. The author never shy’s away from some sensitive subjects whilst making the overall feel of the story uplifting. Ruby and Hudson should have a spin off series of their own as they bring so much fun with their shenanigans. It’s hard coming up with something I haven’t said before about this series but I truly love them and they are a great tonic that never fails to brighten my day when reading them. Perfect escapism!

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.
