Get set for a wonderful celebration of autumn with all your favourite characters at the Little Duck Pond Cafe!
An autumn fair is coming to Sunnybrook, much to the delight of the villagers. But for Madison, whose personal life seems to be spinning out of control, a roller-coaster is the last thing she needs – especially when it’s her emotions at stake.
Can she convince the delectable Jack that their relationship is worth another shot? Or has their romance ground to a permanent halt like a faulty big wheel? Will she solve the mystery of the missing name on her birth certificate? Or will her discoveries take her on a journey even bumpier than the dodgem cars? One thing’s for sure. Madison is going to need more than a fairground fortune teller to find the answers to her questions, if she’s going to ‘waltz-er’ into the happiest of sunsets…
This novella worked really well as a stand-alone book although I am aware that it is part of a series
Madison is a really had character to like, she is so negative and pushes people away so often that it annoyed me and took away some of my sympathy for her, although her inner monologue did show that a lot of this was due to her severe anxieties about how people see and perceive her which did help me warm to her
A lot of the people around her understand why she is like she is but it doesn’t stop her from treating them badly, having found out that her dad wasn’t her biological dad did shake her up a lot and her pushing away of her parents did sort of make sense in a way
I loved the people element of this book and all the characters surrounding Madison were really well created and are the kind of friends that you want in your life! They made me really enjoy this book and when Madison became more aware of the effect that she was having on those around her she did seem to learn and by the end I actually quite liked her!
I would recommend this book to those who enjoy stories full of friendships and crazy things happening
ps – the recipe for toffee apple cake looks amazing!!!

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, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape’, is out now.
Rosie will be revisiting the Little Duck Pond Café with a beautiful story of love and friendship at Christmas time, entitled A Kiss in the Snow, out in October 2020.
