*AD-gifted: I was gifted a copy of A Cornish Summer Holiday at the Little Duck Pond Cafe in exchange for this post.
It’s my turn today to share my review on the blog tour for A Cornish Summer Holiday at the Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green. Now, this is book 10 in the Little Duck Pond Cafe series, but it can be read as a standalone novel. Which I thoroughly enjoyed I may add!
The Little Duck Pond Cafe girls are looking forward to a well-earned break in the Cornish seaside town of Pengully Sands, where Sylvia’s sister, Aggie, owns a holiday home. With the glorious golden sands, sparkling azure sea and an ice-cream parlour only yards away, it seems like the perfect location to relax and watch the surfers riding the waves (and maybe even have a go themselves). But when they arrive, the girls find it’s not quite the seaside idyll they were expecting. The house is less ‘holiday home’ and more ‘creepy, dilapidated haunted house.’ Gracie, who runs the ice-cream parlour, has problems of her own and the last thing she needs is a bunch of high-spirited girls arriving to disturb the peace and isolation she craves. And when a handsome stranger looks set to destroy her livelihood, it seems like the last straw.
Will Gracie get her happy ending – and maybe even make friends with the girls next-door? This wasn’t the relaxing break the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls were expecting, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the holiday of a lifetime!
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.

What I Thought
A Cornish Summer Holiday is all about things Cornwall. Ice cream, surf, romance, cottages, hauntings, and of course the beach. I really enjoyed the story and found it easy to get to know the characters. Which was important to me as I haven’t read the previous books. I adore any books set in my special homeland, and A Cornish Summer Holiday didn’t disappoint me. It was an easy quick read for me, one that would be perfect for the beach. It’s well written, with great, likable characters. I love the character of Gracie. Her story fits in well with the Little Duck Pond Cafe girls and I can’t wait to read the other books in the series.
A wonderful story which deserves 5 out of 5 stars from a Cornwall dwelling romantic.
