Ellie’s plan to turn a neighbouring barn into a venue to teach bread-making skills is under way – but when the construction work interferes with the smooth running of the cafe, she comes up with a plan that lifts the hearts of all the Little Duck Pond Café crew. They’ll close for a month and take a well-earned break in the tiny Cornish village of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Agatha, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and a quirky beach cafe only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even having a go themselves).
But when they arrive, the girls find it isn’t quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house’. And the café is so sad and run down, even the regulars are deserting.
Polly, who runs the beach cafe, is determined to turn its fortunes around - despite an annoying but undeniably attractive councillor called Dan Honeyman standing in her way. Could the arrival of Ellie and the Little Duck Pond Cafe crew bring new hope for Polly?
When a certain hot surfer catches the eye of one of the visitors, her loyalty to the boy back home is severely tested. And with the ghostly goings-on in the holiday home spooking everyone, especially Fen, it seems as if the girls' relaxing holiday might well be over almost before it's started.
This definitely won't be the relaxing break the girls had planned. But that doesn't mean it couldn’t turn out to be the holiday of a lifetime…
About Rosie Green
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.
Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. The latest, ‘Lemon Drizzle Mondays at the Little Duck Pond Cafe', is out now.
Rosie is currently writing a full-length book, ‘Lucy’s Great Cornish Escape’, which – in a fun twist – will feature favourite characters from the Little Duck Pond Café series.
