Book Tour - Summer At The Little Duck Cafe by Rosie Green

Jaz Winters stuck a pin in a map and fled to the village of Sunnybrook, looking for a brand new life - and after a rocky start, it's beginning to look as if she made the right decision. Her blossoming friendship with Ellie and Fen has seen her through some dark times, and she's managed to land two jobs - waitressing at The Little Duck Pond Café and working as a weekend tour guide at Brambleberry Manor, the country house that's been in Fen's family for generations.

Sure, life isn't totally perfect. There's the irritating know-it-all guy who keeps popping up on her manor tours, for a start. He seems determined to get under Jaz's skin whether she likes it or not. But she supposes he's a small price to pay for the relative peace she's found, living in Sunnybrook.

But just as Jaz is beginning to think rosier times are on the horizon, a shock encounter looks set to shatter her fragile happiness.

Will she be forced to flee from Sunnybrook and everyone she's grown so fond of? Or will she find the strength to stand her ground and finally face up to the nightmares of the past?

I'll be honest from the start and say that when I began reading Summer At The Little Duck Cafe I didn't realise it was a short story. I finished the entire book in one sitting ( which immediately states it's a fab book ) and probably could have continued reading if there was more to read. 

As much as I love reading full length novels I do enjoy a short story now and then for a fiction fix. 

Summer At The Little Duck Cafe is a nice, easy reading story revolving around Jaz and a rather abrupt end to a sometimes uncomfortable relationship. Despite knowing that maybe it's for the best, having a child in the works makes it so much harder to come to terms with. Oh, and a duck. Who happens to share the same name as my daughter. Instant winner!

Disappearing out of the way for a while, Jaz's money situation leads to a new job, thanks to her new found friends, but a slightly arrogant and very annoying photographer keeps getting in the way. 

As a short story this book is fantastic. Summer At The Little Duck Cafe has everything you could possibly want from a light hearted read which still maintains the levels of indulgence you'd expect from a full length novel.
