Sweet Pastries & Sourdough by Rosie Green #BookReview #LittleDuckPondCafe15 #BlogTour #RachelsRandomResources #5*

Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start.

But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship. So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention. Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)

Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?
Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building.

Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…

A Superb Addition to this Gorgeous Series!

Another fabulous tale in this gorgeous series!

With Ellie’s dream of her own bakery school about to reach fruition, disaster strikes when the planned teacher, Katja, has a ski-ing accident leaving her out of commission. Luckily, Anita can step into the breach but, with the recent breakdown of her marriage and an operation which has left her emotionally scarred, her self-confidence is at an all time low. She has no intentions of getting romantically involved with anyone but,as luck would have it, she finds herself with not one but two admirers. Living temporarily in Sunnybrook with her young son, she finds a home with Bertha but it’s not long before she realises there is something troubling the woman. Can she find a way to help her friend, keep her son happy and still look after herself?

This is a marvellous, feel-good series; packed with different characters in each book I’m full of awe in how the author manages to introduce them whilst still keeping the reader up-to-date with those that have gone before. It’s like a finely woven tapestry and I have a vision of a story board with threads criss-crossing wildly! Rosie Green has a fertile imagination which allows her to create a wide array of believable stories with such down-to-earth characters with real life issues. There is always a thread of kindness running through each book and I always feel better for reading the latest offering. A superb read which comes with my recommendation and a full house of stars.

My thanks to the author for my copy and to Rachel Gilbey for my spot on this tour; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.

Author Details

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.

Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe.
