It is always a good day when I get to visit the Little Duck Pond Café!
Another delight of a read in this fantastic series! even though this is the 23rd book in the series it is the first book in a trilogy within the series, so it can absolutely be read as a standalone. OK, that’s a lie, after you read this book, you will want to read the next two books, for sure. As they continue Clara’s story. Clara is a very likable relatable character. remember that boy/girl you had a crush on in high school who didn’t even know you existed? for Clara that is Rory and he is now back in her life. so, will he notice her now? You’ll have to pick up this lovely book to find out. And trust me, it will not disappoint! Beautiful flowers, scrumptious vegetables (yes I said scrumptious), sweet sibling relationships, and a charming setting. Not to mention the will they won’t they between Clara and Rory. cannot wait to read the next book and spend more time with Clara and these other fabulous characters.
PS: even though the characters from the previous books, don’t have a huge part in the story, they do make an appearance. And if you’re like me, that will make you smile.
*** Big thank you to the author for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***
