Christmas at The Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green

It’s great to be on the blog tour today for another instalment in this fantastic series. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.

Fen has always hated being the centre of attention.
She loves her new job, working behind the scenes at the Little Duck Pond Cafe and baking the scrumptious cakes that have helped its reputation soar. But frankly, she’d rather scrub the public toilet floor with a toothbrush than have to come out and talk to the customers.
She’s always been happy to stay in the background as long as she has a good supply of books to escape into. That’s her kind of romance – the fictional sort where she can read about other people taking a chance on love, but she doesn’t have to risk her own heart.
But that was before Ethan Fox arrived in the village and turned her world upside down. Ethan is a leading light in the local amateur dramatics theatre company and Fen knows he’s way out of her league.
But when the popular village Christmas pantomime hits a crisis, Fen and Ethan find themselves thrown together. Can Fen overcome her shyness and find the courage to step on stage and save the day?


I loved being back with all the wonderful characters in the Duck Pond Cafe.

Fen hadn’t been the main focus before this book, so it was great to get to know her better. She’s a really sweet character. She’s kind and gentle, but finds social situations awkward because she’s so shy.

She loves romance novels, and I found the way she referenced situations to her romantic heroines and heroes really funny.

As always, there’s a few twists and turns along the way, and the plot flows so well.

It was lovely to catch up with the previous characters too, and see how their lives were going. Having said that, it could be read as a standalone, but it would be a shame not to read the others in the series!

A really enjoyable heart-warming and festive read. Perfect for a cosy evening in.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

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 café. The first two stories in the series are: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and Summer at The Little Duck Pond Café.
