Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Café
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?

What a lovely, inspirational read this proved to be – like a lovely warm, reassuring hug in the midst of the current madness that is our lives at the moment. The theme throughout the story is kindness, how the little things can mean so much and help change things for the better – a brilliant message and particularly pertinent in the current crisis.
Molly Hooper is being brought down by the pressures of being a single parent but is endeavouring to make a good life for her and her almost four year old daughter, Eva. Her friendship with Fen has helped her her get a job working at the Brambleberry Manor Café, a job she hopes will enable her to find a better home away from the landlord she is now so wary of. However, she has a muddy encounter before she starts work, meets a handsome runner, makes new friends and finds that kindness can really help yourself and others.
I can’t recommend this sweet read highly enough. It is a ray of sunshine to brighten your day and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Whilst it is the eighth book in this series, I suspect you could read it as a standalone and still be inspired by it. Now I can’t wait for the next novella in this series to be available so I can read it!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this delightful novella and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and finding it a beautiful, heartwarming read. Spread a little kindness and read it for yourself ☺
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 series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘A Winter Wedding at the Little Duck Pond Cafe’, is out now.
Rosie has also written a full-length, standalone book, ‘Snowflakes over Moondance Cottage’, out now.
