Bonfires and Hot Chocolate is the seventh book in Little Duck Pond Cafe series. If you haven’t come across this series, then you do not know what you are missing!

I am not a fan of romance. All the lovey-dovey, mushy and cheesy stuff – uh-huh, nope! But Little Duck Pond Cafe series has managed to grab my attention. I have been following this series from the start and I am in awe of the story so far! It’s a perfect combination of romance (not the cheesy kind, mind) friendship, life, family, and some good ol’ baking.

In the previous book, the readers were introduced to a new character – Primrose Wilkins. She’s come to Sunnybrook in search of her long-lost grandmother. Her mum was adopted by a nice couple and when Primrose was ten, her parents passed away in a plane crash. A year ago, Primrose’s grandmother passed away too, leaving the tween all alone. Unable to handle the grief, she decides to move to Sunnybrook and find her mum’s biological mother.


Every novella in this series introduces the reader to a new character. Ellie, Jaz, Fen, Katja and now Primrose. All these women have something in common – they have had heartbreaks, life’s been harsh so far – but together, they form quite a bond. The girls are always there for each other, in grief and in happiness.

Fen had entered the baking contest in the previous book. After a last-minute disaster, Fen wasn’t sure if she will be selected. But there you go, she’s now in the finals!

Primrose finds a new flame in Sunnybrook. Callum Davis, handsome, smart and drool-worthy. Then there is the local delivery guy – Sam. He’s flirty but friendly. As the whole village of Sunnybrook prepares for Bonfire night, Primrose finds herself in the middle of a dilemma. Her search for her grandmother might end abruptly, or maybe not. 🙂

The one thing I absolutely adore about this series is that it makes you feel so good about everything. If you are feeling low, this novella is sure to me you feel better. Be it the storytelling, the characters or their lives, nobody writes it better than Rosie Green.

Bonfires and Hot Chocolate is a truly uplifting, enjoyable and feel-good novella. This can be read as a standalone but I recommend you to start from book #1.

Many thanks to Rachel for giving me an opportunity to be a part of this blog tour.

  1. Sounds like a perfect pick me up read! I’ve been reading a lot of dark fantasy lately so this sounds like a respite. It’s always a lot of fun as a series progresses for a new character to be introduced and focused on.

    Do you swap genres to avoid reading slumps?

    1. I do not stick to a particular genre – I alternate between thrillers and cozy mysteries. Maybe, once in a while, I read a Lit-fic. I have been through a long reading slump – I had to take a break from reading. 😀
