Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

#Mystery and #Romance – A Summer of Surprises, Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green – #BlogTour

When Ruby Watkiss lands a job at the True Loaf Bakery, she feels as if the sun has finally come out. Having been through a traumatic time that wrecked her confidence levels, it’s a joy to be working for Ellie, and now all Ruby wants is to lead a quiet life and support her mum in getting the help she needs.

But life, it seems, has other plans for Ruby.

Working alongside the bafflingly rude Hudson Holmes would be bad enough – but then odd things start happening. It seems that someone is out to sabotage the café and bakery, and to her horror, Ruby finds the finger pointing at her.

Desperate to prove her innocence, she teams up with the most unlikely person in order to get to the bottom of what’s going on. Tailing suspects and hiding in bushes isn’t something she ever imagined she’d be doing, although her partner in mystery-solving seems the perfect man for the job. Can they clear Ruby’s name by discovering the real culprit?

With all the drama afoot, at least there’s no time for romance. Because that’s the very last thing on Ruby’s mind these days. Or is it…?

My Review:

Thanks to the publisher for my copy of this book
This is my honest review, please take a look. 

I always look forward to this stories in this series of books,
With great plots and characters - including the ducks!
It is great to catch up on characters old and new
And to find out what they’ve been up to since my last review!

This time Ruby starts working at the True Loaf Bakery but
Her time there will be short as her time there is cut.
She needs to prove she’s innocent of what she’s accused
As her job there she’d really rather not lose.

She wants to find out whose messing with Ellie’s life
There’s mice, salt and posters causing trouble and strife.
Hudson Holmes volunteers to assist in her quest so
The two new detectives are ready to go!

The story has family secrets concealed
And drama galore when they are revealed.
There’s romance and mystery in equal measure
In a story that gives readers like me lots more pleasure.

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.

Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Sweet Pastries & Sourdough’, is out now.

Look out for more Little Duck Pond Café tales in 2021!
