(This is the 21st novella in the Little Duck Pond Café series)
Mackenzie ‘Kenzie’ Morris has left her old life behind – as a TV researcher in Torminster – and has moved to Sunnybrook. She has started working part-time at the Little Duck Pond Café and is hoping to start up her own pottery business. Delivering some of her pottery to a shop, she literally bumps into a rather good looking man called Aidan. But Kenzie has some secrets she is trying to hide…
I found this story easy to get into and Kenzie is a very likeable character. I loved her friendship with Rachel and little Poppy and I wanted to read on to know what had happened to change everything.
Although being a novella, it is obviously shorter than a novel, I found it was just the right length for the story it told. It was well-paced, the characters were really well brought to life and it held my attention all the way through.
This is the second of Rosie Green’s Little Duck Pond Café novellas that I have read and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
Jingle Bells in June, Little Duck Pond Café
Mackenzie Morris, newest recruit at the Little Duck Pond Café, is the perfect addition to the team. But beneath her smiles, Kenzie is hiding a dark secret. It’s the reason she fled to Sunnybrook, desperate for a fresh start that would help to lay the ghosts that haunt her.
The challenge of turning her hobby into a business is a welcome distraction, and to her relief, she finds that her range of quirky pottery mugs and vases appear to be in demand. Alone and scared when she arrived, she’s slowly making friends and starting to feel as if she belongs. Meeting a lovely guy called Aidan seems to confirm this and it looks as if love might be on the horizon.
But then Kenzie makes a devastating discovery that threatens to crush her new-found happiness. Aidan is the one person she yearns to confide in. He’s also the one person who can never know the truth . . .
