Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed all the earlier books in this series and eagerly anticipated this latest addition – and it was a fantastic read, bringing so many things together despite all the problems encountered along the way.
The Winter Wedding in the title is that of Zak and Ellie. The preparations are going well though Zak seems to be spending an inordinate amount of time with his book publicist, Jennifer, in London – even cancelling dinner dates with Ellie to do so. This is putting some strain on Ellie, who is trying not to be suspicious but struggling. When Zac arranges some surprises for her hen party, all seems to be going well but there’s still more to go wrong before the wedding! You’ll just have to read it yourself to discover how it all works out in the end.
This is a delightful addition to a lovely series. It may be possible to read this as a standalone but I think you’d be missing out on so much to do so. The characters, their interactions, relationships, history and plans have been developing through the series so they feel like old friends now. There are plenty of potential pitfalls en route in this story and some fantastic, romantic twists in the end. It is a great story of individuals and a community, packed with love and support.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and thoroughly enjoying doing so. I have no hesitation in highly recommending it and this whole series.
With Zak and Ellie’s wedding day approaching, there’s high excitement in the pretty village of Sunnybrook, especially among the Little Duck Pond Café crew. Ellie is over the moon with her romantic surprise wedding gift from Zak, and Madison is promising to organise a hen party to remember. Everyone has high hopes for a magical Christmas Eve wedding celebration at gorgeous Brambleberry Manor. (Even Maisie-Moo has a sparkling new outfit.)
But sometimes, even the best-laid plans can go wrong. And with the journey to the altar turning out to be rockier than expected, it’s going to take nothing short of a Christmas miracle to ensure a happy ending . . .
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 in December 2019.
Rosie is also writing a full-length, standalone book for Christmas 2019, entitled ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’, which will be out in November.
