Molly Hooper has a secret.
It haunts her dreams and casts a dark shadow over life with her gorgeous three-year-old daughter, Eva. Arriving in Sunnybrook has given her a glimpse of sunshine. The Little Duck Pond Cafe crew seem so welcoming and there’s even the chance of a new job. Baking delicious cakes has always taken Molly to a happy place, so the job – at the glorious Brambleberry Manor Cafe – might just be perfect for her. It would mean she and little Eva could finally put down some roots at last.
But is Sunnybrook the sanctuary Molly is searching for? Or will the past come back to haunt her, wherever she hides?

A Fabulously Created Story!
Another fantastic story from the Little Duck Pond Cafe series!
Molly Hooper is a single mum, and like most her daughter Eva is the light in her life. Moving to Sunnybrook has given her hope for a better future and volunteering with Fen, baker extraordinaire, had led to the offer of a part-time job. Will this be the beginning of hope for a better future, or will her past catch up with them?
I love this series. Each story is individually tailored and yet it all works together as part of a series. There is a theme of kindness running through this book, and the quotations at the beginning of each chapter are just perfect. I’m a great believer in kindness (I think it is the most underrated trait) and it just oozes from each page. Rosie Green writes really upbeat, happy tales and yet she never shies from including the grottier side of life. A fabulously created story, beautifully written as always and a superb addition to all the others in the series. The book cover also merits a mention – terrifically illustrated and ideal for what’s within. Highly recommended – as are all the others in this series – and fully earning all five sparkling stars! I can’t wait for the next one!
My thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources both for forwarding my copy and my spot in this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

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 cafe. Confetti at the Little Duck Pond Cafe will be the sixth in the series.
