Christmas at The Little Duck Pond Cafe

by Rosie Green



                                      

Amazon US / UK / CAAU  

 

Fen has always hated being the center 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 love this series!💖 Rosie Green creates wonderful cozies that are sure to warm your heart and make you smile!😀 This book definitely meets the standards of it’s previous works. I enjoyed the sweet but well written plot and would definitely recommend Rosie Green’s novel to those whom love a feel good cozy!💖

Author Bio

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 centered 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.

NeverHaven (Vision of the Elder#1) by Michael Garza-YA Bound 


I want to thank YA Bound Blog Tours & the author for this opportunity. All views expressed in this review are my own.😊


NeverHaven (Vision of the Elder #1)
by Michael W. Garza

Genre: YA Fiction/Occult & Supernatural
Release Date: October 8th 2018
NeverHaven Press

Summary:

The bond between twins can bend but never break.
Elizabeth is crazy, at least that’s what everyone believes. She sees things, terrible things no one wants to hear about. Her twin sister, Jessica, used to see things too, but she convinced herself long ago it was all in her head. The sixteen-year-old was left to drift through the chaos alone, abandoned by her other half. But now the darkness has come calling.

Vision of the Elder

This YA Paranormal Series follows the trail of those children forced to bear witness to the sacred rites of the Cult of the Elder. Their eyes are opened to the darkness beyond the void, and their lives are forever changed.

Book I: NeverHaven
Book II: Children of the Mark (Forthcoming)
Book III: The Crimson Door (Forthcoming)



Elizabeth gaze lowered to the gauze wrapped tightly around her wrists, and she forced herself to consider what she’d nearly done. Technically, it was a suicidal gesture. To be honest, it was her third suicidal gesture in the past four years. She’d used the razor from her father’s fancy shaver. Elizabeth didn’t want to die, she knew that. Dr. Wesley confirmed it, although Elizabeth didn’t put much stock in what her shrink said. Thinking about it made her uncomfortable, and she squirmed in her seat.

Elizabeth saw things. No one believed her. No one except Jessica had ever believed her.

Wow, this was quite the story!💖 When I first read the synopsis, I was automatically drawn to it and was more drawn to it as I realized how much I could relate in a small way to Elizabeth’s crazy reality. The writing style of this story was good and it captured my attention from beginning to end. There were a few slow moments but overall a pretty enticing read. I am very excited to see what the author brings out next! I would definitely recommend this book to those whom enjoy a good YA read.😊

The Last Ghost by Jamie Blake

The Last Ghost KindleChristian Orland is dead, and everyone in his life is doing their best to understand what happened.

Especially Woe, the sixteenth Fatality, who knows that she was assigned the wrong case when she stopped his heart, but also knew she had to do it, or risk being destroyed herself.

Woe only handles expected death, and not many people expect to die in an accident. However, not many people have the history of Christian Orland. That history is now tormenting his brother Noah, the keeper of all of Christian’s dangerous secrets, his childhood friend Ellery, who he once swore he would love “until he died,” and his girlfriend Melissa, who can’t understand why she is the only person not haunted by ghosts.

Woe teams up with the Fatality who she thinks should have had Christian’s case, and the ghosts of Christian’s past to try to solve the mystery of how he ended up as her case. As they try to unravel some of Christian’s lies, they begin to uncover something far more sinister.

Together, the most important people in Christian’s life and death must work to restore order from the chaos his death caused in the lives of those who loved him, and in realms he could not imagine, before free will is lost forever.
Excerpt Reveal

The Last Ghost excerpt

The sixteenth Fatality was surprised to find herself on a bridge, but that was where her appointment book told her to go, and thus, that was where she went. Not that she had a choice either way, but she didn’t mind, she liked the order, the predetermination of things. Car after car drove by, and she watched them, looking closely, knowing all the while that they couldn’t see her. A little after eight in the morning, she noticed a car moving erratically on the bridge. She watched as the car seemed to spin, and then crashed through the wooden guard rail and into the water below. She looked over the edge of the bridge as the car; front end first, began to sink into the depths. She peered down the road, waiting for another car to come, some passerby to notice the broken guard rail, someone to help the passengers. After a few minutes passed, she began to wait for someone entirely different.

Knowing that too much time had gone by for there to be a legitimate chance of rescue, she floated down to where the car had entered the water, looking around expectantly for the twelfth Fatality to come and bring a life to an end. He didn’t come. She started to panic, aware of the pain the people in the car must feel. She felt the familiar pulse of the appointment book as the realization began to overtake her. “This is wrong. This is not how it is supposed to be, ”she murmured, as she dove into the water, passed through the passenger side door of the car, and gently took the right hand of the young man, unconscious and bleeding in the front seat. Her icy touch went up through the fingertips, up the arm, and across his chest as it stopped the faintly beating heart. She pulled herself out of the water, dry, but still shivering, and walked back towards the bridge to wait. For a Fatality, she hated the process of death. She had heard that she did not have the glamorous part, that there were various other beings that could comfort humans. Beings whose presence was welcomed, as they said their last goodbyes, or made the pain stop. That was not her assignment. Eventually, sirens blaring, the rescue workers came, and it was with a dull throb that she realized they were already too late by the time that she got to the bridge that day. She had three other appointments that morning, all in hospitals, which was where she normally lingered. She knew some of the other Fatalities who spent time in hospitals, but was not in the mood to socialize with them, to tell them about her terrible day. She never truly felt like one of them anyway. Instead, she knew where she had to go, she just didn’t want to visit that place.

Book Review

This was an enjoyable read! I have been having some health concerns so have been laid up on bed rest so this book surely took my mind off of things! I liked the inventive plot of the story and the book had a unique all around feel about it. I didn’t enjoy the characters as much as the storyline so my rating is about a 3.75 but never the less, I feel that the writing style was good and unique! I always enjoy unique stories mixed with the paranormal and I am interested in reading Jamie Blake’s other works!

*~Belonging by Rhoda Baxter – Feature via Rachel’s Random Resources and Review~*💖💯 I would like to thank Rachel and Rhoda Baxter for providing me this opportunity and also for your patience while this being my 3rd time making this post due to WP acting up again and some sudden health concerns but like you said Rachel hopefully the third time is a charm! I am grateful to be a part of this tour and all views expressed are my own. Now to this fantabulous book!💖

She’s grieving her lost love. He’s searching for his lost niece. Can attraction overcome family loyalty in this enemies to lovers romance?

Hiding away in a tiny Yorkshire village, Harriet is grieving for her lost love. His family won’t talk to her and she can’t move on from from his death. All this changes when his daughter, Niamh, turns up on her doorstep, needing a sympathetic ear.

Tim thinks Harriet broke up his sister’s marriage all those years ago. His sister’s enemies are his enemies. When his niece runs away to Harriet’s house, he knows he has to get her back before his sister finds out. But that means talking with Harriet.

As they work together to console Niamh and get her home safely, Tim and Harriet become increasingly attracted to each other.

But with attraction comes guilt.

Can they overcome their respective loyalties and give in to love?

MY REVIEW:

Belonging: A small town romance (Trewton Royd Novellas Book 2)

Belonging: A small town romance by Rhoda Baxter
My rating: 5 of 5 fantastic stars!!!😀

Belonging by Rhoda Baxter is a 2018 publication.

I just loved this novella by Rhoda Baxter!❤💙💚💛 This was a fantastic read to help me escape a little.😊 Many people don’t prefer novellas because of many authors not being able to pack enough punch into their books and I can agree to a point that this can happen but with Ms. Baxter’s novella, I was in love! She was able to craft an excellent book in under 150 pages and gave me all the feels and exceeded my expectations. Belonging by Rhoda Baxter has fantastic characters, a steady plot and it all was woven together with an outstanding writing style!💛💚💙 I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read that can be gobbled up within a few hours or so.😁 I can’t wait for the chance to see what Ms. Baxter comes out with next and when time allows me to read her past works! Hands down, a five star read.☆☆☆☆☆
