Sweet Pastries & Sourdough, Little Duck Pond Café

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…

About Rosie Green

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.

Hi everyone,

today, I’m reviewing a really nice book ‘Sweet Pastries & Sourdough’ by Rosie Green. I have to say that I wasn’t familiar by Rosie’s writing until now and I’m really upset with myself about it. I wish I knew before how good of a writer she is but now I at least know.

In this book, we are following Anita who just moved to Sunnybrook with her son, Rufus. We also follow how she deals with her early menopause and her love life. Not only that, but we learn a lot about bread-making, which made my mouth water throughout the book. I love bread and just reading about how to make it, made me want to bake bread myself.

I was glad that through the book, we didn’t learn only about Anita but also other people that live in the Sunnybrook. And also, the way Anita was helpful and didn’t only think about herself even if she had more than enough things on her plate, just struck the cord with me. Once I’ve started reading this book, I really couldn’t stop. It might take you some time to warm up to her but, in my opinion, it is totally worth it. I had my problems as well to warm up to her and once it happened, I enjoyed this book so much.

If you enjoy books with baking, this book is one for you. Especially bread baking! I know that this book is part of a series, but it can be read as a stand alone. Try giving it a shot and you will enjoy it. Just as a tip, maybe make some bread yourself beforehand, and eat it while reading this book. It will make experience so much better, I feel like.

Love and light,
