Sweet Pastries & Sourdough is Book #15 in Rosie Green’s delightful series -Little Duck Pond Cafe. I’ve read book #6 – Confetti at The Little Duck Pond Cafe and book #14 – A Brambleberry Manor Christmas, so I was very happy to read and review another of her books.
Sweet Pastries and Sourdough, Little Duck Pond Café
Ellie’s brand new enterprise, the True Loaf Bakery, is finally open and classes are due to start. But when Katja’s ski-ing holiday ends in disaster, a new teacher must be found very quickly. Anita is up for the challenge, but – fresh from a break-up and an operation that’s left her feeling physically and emotionally vulnerable – the last thing she’s looking for when she moves to Sunnybrook is a new relationship.
So it’s Sod’s law that she should find herself with not one but two guys vying for her attention.
Sven, from Denmark, is a bit of an enigma – but maybe passion lurks beneath his cool reserve? And as for twenty-five-year-old football coach Ross – surely she’d be asking for trouble getting involved with a gorgeous man a decade her junior? (Although her football-mad son Rufus seems to love him.)
Moving in with Bertha proves a real comfort – but can Anita get to the bottom of what’s troubling the older woman?
Anita’s job at the True Loaf Bakery is only temporary, but she finds herself drawn ever deeper into life in the village – especially when she finds a child’s bracelet from long ago, in the rubble of the newly-renovated building. Solving the mystery of who it belongs to takes Anita on a journey of discovery – a journey that might just help her discover what her own heart really needs…

Meet 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.
Her series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe.

It was a pleasure to travel back to Sunnybrook and catch up on the happenings in the Little Duck Pond Cafe!
In this book we encounter Anita and Rufus, her absolutely adorable little boy. New to the place, she catches the attention of two men – Sven from Denmark and Ross, the football coach. Will she find love with one of these two?
Anita comes off as being a strong character struggling with her newly separated status and dealing with early menopause, still she makes sure to be a great Mom to her son. Warm hearted and likeable, I was taken up with her and her baking skills.
This is the kind of book that I would love to read straight through if I had the time.
Romance, a bit of mystery and lovable characters make this book another delightful read from Rosie Green. I’m looking forward to catching up with more books in this series.
