It was meant to be a gloriously romantic getaway in Wales for Ruby and Hudson. That was the plan, anyway. But then friends start inviting themselves along, lured by the idea of unwinding in a chocolate-box pretty cottage, wandering the lanes and the coastline, soaking up the sun and the stunningly beautiful Italian-inspired architecture. With Ellie, Jaz, Fen and Madison popping up around every corner, plus another sinister mystery to solve, will the lovebirds ever find time to indulge their desire for sun, sea and . . . strawberry shortcake?
I received a copy of this book from the author.
I’ve read all the stories featuring Ruby and Hudson, so I was looking forward to reading this and loved it. Aside from Ruby and Hudson, a few little Duck Pond Cafe regulars are also featured, and Jaz’s storyline is particularly poignant. Ruby finds herself embroiled in a mystery, and the suspense ramps up to an impactful conclusion. This book makes the perfect Summer read with old favourites, new characters, and a mystery to solve.
Rosie’s series of novellas is centred around life in a country village cafe. Look out for ‘Clara’s Secret Garden’ out in August 2022.
