Get set for a wonderful celebration of autumn with all your favourite characters at the Little Duck Pond Cafe!
An autumn fair is coming to Sunnybrook, much to the delight of the villagers. But for Madison, whose personal life seems to be spinning out of control, a roller-coaster is the last thing she needs – especially when it’s her emotions at stake.
Can she convince the delectable Jack that their relationship is worth another shot? Or has their romance ground to a permanent halt like a faulty big wheel? Will she solve the mystery of the missing name on her birth certificate? Or will her discoveries take her on a journey even bumpier than the dodgem cars?
One thing’s for sure. Madison is going to need more than a fairground fortune teller to find the answers to her questions, if she’s going to ‘waltz-er’ into the happiest of sunsets…

A Beautifully Told, Feel-Good Tale!
Another fabulous addition to this wonderful series – and another cracking cover!
As the seasons change from summer to autumn, Madison finds herself still estranged from Jack and she knows that she wants them to rekindle their romance; but she also knows it takes two to tango – so how does Jack feel about it? She is also determined to find out why her father’s name is missing from her birth certificate, but extracting the information from her mother won’t be easy, and the expected arrival in Sunnybrook of an autumn fair is just too much for her to take in at the moment. Can she finally get her life sorted out?
Sunnybrook is the perfect name for such a pleasant village, bursting at the seams with terrific characters. I marvel that author Rosie Green has expanded this into a twelfth story, with this one every bit as fresh as the first. With all relationships touched upon in this, Maddy’s story, none of it is sugar-coated and their issues are much the same as all the rest of us go through. This is overwhelmingly a feel-good read though, and it’s a beautifully told tale, as you would expect – and, of course, including a most mouth-watering recipe at the end of the book! Another lovely instalment in this superb series, fully worth all five sparkling stars and the highest recommendation.
My thanks to the author for my copy and to Rachel’s Random Resources for my spot on 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. 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.
