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?
✮ My Review ✮
OMG, what a delight to finally see where it all began! To see Ellie in the aftermath of her break up with Richard. How she first meet Zak and Maisie! Oh and off course, Sylvia and meeting Rose! I am going to sound so sloshy but my heart just sang. I will admit cried too!
I absolutely adore this series, and I will admit it’s so nice to be back with one of the original girls. Don’t get me wrong I do love Madison, Katja and Primose but there is something so special about Ellie, Fen and Jaz. This trio is the foundation of this series and I am so glad that it got extended from the original plan of just three books!! Three books! Who would Adam and Eve it!
Because I, wrongly, started the series at book two I missed out on the initial meet up, not that I ever felt like I was missing something. I really wasn’t, but it just adds to the magic reading book one and seeing how it all began with climbing a tree and a dip in the pond.
This series has always made me smile, and it’s one I love dipping back into. I am with old friends and seeing Ellie and Zak fall in love was so lovely especially as I am going to read book eight! And well it’s about Ellie and Zak!
I did fee for Ellie at the start with her breakup and you see the loss of confidence in her. But the meeting of Maisie soon changed that for her and it opened Zaks eyes too! These novellas are just one of pure heart-thumping love, one to last the lifetime. Yes, we have a bit of drama now and again with misconceptions but in this novella that was a bare minimum and in such few pages you are given a new family to care about and to love as your own.
I know there is a 9th book on its way too, I can’t wait for that. But with such a huge cast of characters, I really can’t see this series slowing down. Now I have read the first book I now have the complete history of the girls and can enjoy it even more!!
Until next time xxx
