Ellie is fortunate to literally fall into a new life in this small town of Sunnybrook. She thinks it is going to be temporary, but you know she is going to get sucked in to the small town life and all of the quirky new friends she is able to make. I want to hang out with these women and feel like they are going to be able to teach each other a lot in spite of their age differences. Plus when you have a hottie writer like Zak right there, how could you want to leave? He has his own damaged past and secrets, but I feel like the two of them could make things work and really heal each other.
I was slightly unsure about how I was going to feel when this story started. But then I found myself getting completely sucked in to all of their lives and was disappointed when I got to the end. I am glad to see that there is a whole series to follow this one and will likely continue on with it as time allows.
Sylvia's café is a tribute to the past. That also means it's hard for her to let go. Ellie would love for her friend to be happy once more. Can she help Sylvia to move on and see the good things the present has to offer? Can she assist her to make her business a success while trying to deal with her feelings for Sylvia's nephew? Ellie isn't looking for love, but the cheerful Sunnybrook has a healing effect on everyone who stays there, and it seems to keep finding her. Will she be able to give in and give romance another chance?
Spring at the Little Duck Pond Cafe is a wonderful feelgood story. Ellie is sweet and caring and I admired how brave she is. She takes risks to find future happiness and I loved how she always tries to find a solution for every problem she encounters. She constantly helps others and because of her gorgeous personality she quickly makes new friends. I couldn't wait to see if she'd find herself in Sunnybrook and if she'd be able to stay there permanently. I effortlessly read the book in one sitting because it made me both curious and cheerful.
Rosie Green has a lovely heartwarming writing style. Spring at the Little Duck Pond Cafe put a big smile on my face. The setting is stunning, the inhabitants of Sunnybrook are fabulous and there's always something interesting going on in the little village. I love that the story has such a nice cosy feeling. It's the perfect atmosphere for a terrific story about true love and beautiful friendships. Spring at the Little Duck Pond Cafe is a delightful uplifting story.

I absolutely adore this series, and I will admit it’s so nice to be back with one of the original girls. Don’t get me wrong I do love Madison, Katja and Primose but there is something so special about Ellie, Fen and Jaz. This trio is the foundation of this series and I am so glad that it got extended from the original plan of just three books!! Three books! Who would Adam and Eve it!
Because I, wrongly, started the series at book two I missed out on the initial meet up, not that I ever felt like I was missing something. I really wasn’t, but it just adds to the magic reading book one and seeing how it all began with climbing a tree and a dip in the pond.
This series has always made me smile, and it’s one I love dipping back into. I am with old friends and seeing Ellie and Zak fall in love was so lovely especially as I am going to read book eight! And well it’s about Ellie and Zak!
I did fee for Ellie at the start with her breakup and you see the loss of confidence in her. But the meeting of Maisie soon changed that for her and it opened Zaks eyes too! These novellas are just one of pure heart-thumping love, one to last the lifetime. Yes, we have a bit of drama now and again with misconceptions but in this novella that was a bare minimum and in such few pages you are given a new family to care about and to love as your own.
I know there is a 9th book on its way too, I can’t wait for that. But with such a huge cast of characters, I really can’t see this series slowing down. Now I have read the first book I now have the complete history of the girls and can enjoy it even more!!
The scenery descriptions, both inside the cafe etc and the outdoors, were well written and easy to visualize, and I was really pleased to see horrible Madge get her just desserts !
All in all, its a very relaxing book and I look forward to the sequels.
Humour was one of the strongest thread running through this story, along with romance and friendship, so it was an easy book to take to quickly. You are going to get exactly what you expect from the cover – a sweet, happy story set in a cute village with added ducks. What’s not to like? What you will also be getting are some real family issues, well-formed characters and a healthy dose of the warm fuzzies, so this is the perfect read when you are wanting a mood-lifting book. It’s also short so you can get your happiness hit quickly if you are pushed for time.
Because it is only a short novella, a lot happens very quickly so there isn’t much time for the reader to draw breath or for the characters to spend navel-gazing. Problems arise and get resolved very quickly out of necessity and you might find that you are questioning whether things can honestly happen that quickly in real life – fast friendships and romances formed, heartbreak forgotten and new jobs and homes found. Don’t bother, of course they can’t, but who cares? This isn’t real life, it’s pure escapism and all the better for it. That is exactly what you are looking for in this type of book.
This is a speedy and satisfying read for an idle ninety minutes when you are looking for an undemanding distraction. It’s a little ray of sunshine on your Kindle, with enough going on to be satisfying. I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
This may be a light, easy-read romance, but it does not shy away from issues of betrayal, work-place bullying and Alzheimer's.
With "The Little Duck Pond Café," Rosie Green has a winning formula and I hope we can read more tales from Sunnybrook soon.
The characters were likeable, believable and warm, and the setting was gorgeous. I fancy a trip to the Little Duck Pond Café myself! I am looking forward to the next in the series.
