Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe: (Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 1)

Fleeing from a romance gone wrong, Ellie Farmer arrives in the pretty little village of Sunnybrook, hoping for a brand new start that most definitely does not include love! Following an unscheduled soak in the village duck pond, she meets Sylvia, who runs the nearby Duck Pond Café. Renting the little flat above the café seems like the answer to Ellie's prayers. It's only for six months, which will give her time to sort out her life, far away from cheating boyfriend Richard.

But is running away from your past ever really the answer?

Clashing with the mysterious and brooding Zack Chamberlain, an author with a bad case of writer's block, is definitely not what Ellie needs right now. And then there's Sylvia, who's clinging so hard to her past, she's in danger of losing the quaint but run-down Duck Pond Café altogether.

Can Ellie find the answers she desperately needs in Sunnybrook? And will she be able to help save Sylvia's little Duck Pond Café from closure?

Great Astronomers John Pond

ohn Pond (1767–1836) was appointed as 6th Astronomer Royal in February 1811, succeeding Dr. Nevil Maskelyne. Of a mild and unassuming character, Pond neither sought nor attained a popular reputation. His work was wholly technical, his writings dry and condensed; but his reform of the national observatory at Greenwich, England, was fundamental. He not only procured for it an instrumental outfit of the modern type, but established the modern system of observation. The number of assistants was increased during his term of office from one to six, and he substituted quarterly for annual publication of results. He possessed the true instinct of a practical astronomer.

This is a brief eBook derived from the "John Pond" entry in the British Dictionary of National Biography.

    This review is from: Spring at The Little Duck Pond Cafe: (Little Duck Pond Cafe, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    I knew I was going to enjoy this cute little novella as soon as the author started talking about knickers when we had only got no further than the beginning of Chapter Two. I can easily get onboard with a writer who isn’t afraid to shoehorn wet undies into a book early on for the sake of laughs!

    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.

    A pleasant story with no crude language (except one rude word which was totally in context ((ha ha)), and no explicit sex scenes.

    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.

    But underpinning this classic tale of romance is a story of female love and loyalty, 26 Jun. 2018

    “Spring at The Little Duck Pond Café” is a heartwarming romance. Indeed, it is two romances; a budding new romance for two young people – Ellie and Zak – and a more mature rebirth of romance for Sylvia and Mick. But underpinning this classic tale of romance is a story of female love and loyalty. As with the romantic thread, there are two triangles of love and loyalty. First we have the newly found friendship of Ellie, Fen and Jaz who support each other through many recognisable life-hurdles. Then there is the more profound triangle of Ellie, her mother Rose and mother-figure/mentor, Sylvia.
    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.
