Bonfires and Hot Chocolate at the Little Duck Pond Café by Rosie Green @rararesources #bookreview

Happy Tuesday all!

Fall is finally in the air and this is the perfect book to curl up with on a cool afternoon!🍂🍂🍂

Bonfires & Hot Chocolate (at the Little Duck Pond Café)

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?

My Thoughts

The perfect way to kick off your fall reading! I could feel the crisp in the air, the crunch of the leaves, and the warmth of the hot chocolate. Always lovely coming back to Sunnybrook and spending time with these charming characters. I loved all the fall festivities it made me feel all warm and cozy. Also all the delicious fall goodies! It appears as though they are not quite as obsessed with pumpkin everything in the UK as we are in the US! Once again Rosie Green has written a story that made me smile and a little bit hungry.

This was the seventh book in the Little Duck Pond Café series and probably my favorite so far! I thought the series wouldn’t be as good after the storyline veered away from the original trio, but I was wrong. This story was about Primrose Who we were introduced to in the last book. Primrose has come to town seeking out her biological grandmother and finds a job at the café. Primrose is a colorful character both in personality and dress. She has a big heart and a love for dogs. There is a bit of a love triangle although I was pretty sure of who the final love interest would be and I was glad for that. But what will happen when Primrose does or doesn’t find a family connection in Sunnybrook? The secondary storyline was about Fen and what happened at the end of her time on the baking reality television show. We also got periodic glimpses of Ellie and her wedding planning (is the next book about the wedding?). Another wonderful addition to this charming series and even though this was the seventh book I think it would work just fine as a standalone. However I would strongly encourage you to spend as much time as you can with these characters in this town at this café!

Author Bio

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’.
