Lucy’s Great Escape by Rosie Green **Book Review** @rararesources

Happy Sunday all!

Excited to share with you today my review for another fabulous installment in this amazing series! If you have not started the series yet you need to get to it ASAP!☀️

Lucy’s Great Escape, Little Duck Pond Café

Lucy never wanted to abandon her friends and family, and travel to the other side of the country to start a new life. And all without telling anyone where she was going. But these are desperate times. And finding herself with a nightmare of a dilemma, fleeing her home town seems like the only way she can protect herself and those she loves.

The Cornish town of Pengully Sands holds happy childhood memories for Lucy and seems the perfect place to escape to, although having little money and no friends, life at first seems grim.

But a chance meeting with Madison and the rest of the Little Duck Pond Café girls, plus a decidedly attractive local guy who won’t take no for an answer, gives Lucy a glimmer of hope for the future. Could she really settle in Pengully Sands and make a living by selling her watercolours?

But just as life is starting to look a little rosier, it becomes clear that someone back home – the last person she ever wanted to see – has tracked her down…

My Thoughts

Sweet and suspenseful… hopeful and dark… A little more edgy Little Duck Pond Café book. This is the 11th book in this amazing series and even though the Little Duck Pond girls don’t play a huge part in the book, I still absolutely loved it! We met Lucy in the previous book and I like how this book overlapped with her meeting the LDP girls in the previous story. Also really liked how this book showed a different side of Madison. I really like that girl and hope nothing but the best for her! The story is all about Lucy and how she ended up in Pengully, A Cornish seaside town. We also get to see her fall in love, work for Cruella DeVil, find her voice and confidence. Lucy is a very likable character who has gone through some pretty Trumatic things. The woman her father is dating is pure evil and Lucy is having a hard time convincing him of that. I liked how all the layers to the story peeled themselves away until everyone saw the truth. I also really liked love interest Gabe and was rooting for him inspite of everything. Another wonderful installment in this fabulous series! Can’t wait for what’s next! And according to the authors notes at the end I don’t think this is the last time we will be seeing this charming seaside village!

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 Little Duck Pond Cafe series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. Each book can be read as a stand-alone story. The latest, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape’, is out now. Watch out for further tales of the Little Duck Pond Cafe, including the delicious ‘Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake’, which will be published in autumn 2020.
