Sweet Pastries And Sourdough, Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green

Release Date: 03.05.2021


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...


The more I read the books in this series the more I love this author's writing. 

Anita, and her son, temporarily moved to Sunnybrook because she has to substitute bread and bakery teacher at the True Loaf Bakery. This job couldn't come at a better time because she has to get away from her cheating husband and she needs a distraction from her healthy troubles. She is not looking for a new man in her life but she catches the attention of two fine men. Will it be the right time to start a new relationship?

I liked how this story tells Anita's journey, with her troubles, love interests and fears for the future.
Anita is lovely, I felt so many of her emotions, she is a relatable character and I cheered for her to get her happy ending since the beginning. I didn't appreciate too much how she tries to forget her troubles buring her head in the sand but I still can understand her shock hearing the news.

I didn't have read all the books in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series but I have had a very good time reading those that I have and I highly recommend these novels.
