#BlogTour Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green

Today it's my turn on the BlogTour Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pong Cafe by Rosie Green.
About the Author
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.

About the book
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?

Molly is stuck in a situation that doesn't seem to have a solution. The life she has built up for herself and her young daughter is marred by someone with nefarious intentions. Someone who lured her into a trap when she was vulnerable and unfortunately it appears to be the kind of trap that won't end well for her.

She takes solace in the fact she has found a new job at the Little Duck Pond Cafe where everyone, well nearly everyone, is welcoming and interested in her well-being. The job also comes with the perk of having to serve the occasional scrumptious customer now and again.

Her heart isn't really in a place where it can trust her emotions or the reactions of men, because so far her experience of men in general has been one of avoidance, threats and fear. It will take more than a pair of beautiful eyes to change her mind about that.

I really liked the way Green inserted a sub-storyline with a more serious tone into this romcom. It sort of delivers the joyful message with one of hope. To never give up and that there are always people out there willing to help or share a kind gesture. In fact if we all did just one kind thing for someone else every so often then I am sure the world would soon become a brighter and more optimist place., and if a piece of cake was part of the deal I am sure we would all be a lot happier too.

The act of doing something kind for someone without expecting anything yourself other than that person pass it on via their own act or gesture of kindness is something we can all get behind. It's not limited to country continent, race, religion, gender or age, and it also a concept we can all comprehend.

It's a romcom with big heart and plenty of goodwill.
