A Winter Wish: (Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 24) by Rosie Green @rararesources @Rosie_Green88

Book Description:

With her new-found happiness unexpectedly crushed, Clara is struggling to move forward. It’s hard – especially with step-sister Lois bouncing around the place with joy and making all sorts of plans for the future. When step-mum Irene starts behaving oddly and a neighbour makes a shocking accusation, Clara finds herself in an impossible position. And it’s a situation that threatens to destroy her blossoming romance almost before it’s begun . . .

My Thoughts:

Even though this is the 24th book in the series, it’s the second part in a trilogy that features Clara and her family. Whilst you don’t have to have read all the books in the series before this one, I would highly recommend that you read the 23rd book, which is the first book to feature Clara.

I have been waiting not so patiently for this book to see what happens next in Clara’s love life. There are two love interests and whilst I liked both, there is one in particular that I really hoped that Clara would get it together with even though it would cause a whole heap of other issues. Along with Clara, we get to know a bit more about the dynamics of her family and it did make for some heart-breaking reading. When it comes to her step mum and Clara’s sister, many a time I would love to give them a big shake due to their selfish actions but then they redeem themselves only for me to want to shake them again. I absolutely adore Bertie the younger brother. He really is a cutie.

A Winter Wish is an enthralling read that has left me desperate for the last book in this trilogy. I am loving the dilemma of Clara’s love life which gives a real will they, won’t they vibe and even though I think she will get with the person I want her to the most, I’m not sure if it’s just wishful thinking on my part or the author has other plans. Either way, I need the next book like now! I will be counting down the days. A wonderfully engaging read filled with secrets, romance and drama!

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.
