Lucy's Great Escape, Little Duck Pond Cafe by Rosie Green
Lucy’s Great Escape, Little Duck Pond Café
Lucy never wanted to abandon her friends and family, and travel to the other side of the country to start a new life. And all without telling anyone where she was going.
But these are desperate times. And finding herself with a nightmare of a dilemma, fleeing her home town seems like the only way she can protect herself and those she loves.
The Cornish town of Pengully Sands holds happy childhood memories for Lucy and seems the perfect place to escape to, although having little money and no friends, life at first seems grim.
But a chance meeting with Madison and the rest of the Little Duck Pond Café girls, plus a decidedly attractive local guy who won’t take no for an answer, gives Lucy a glimmer of hope for the future. Could she really settle in Pengully Sands and make a living by selling her watercolours?
But just as life is starting to look a little rosier, it becomes clear that someone back home – the last person she ever wanted to see – has tracked her down…

If you have read any of the previous books in this series, you may be surprised by the different energy of this book. It has a strange, more serious feeling about it. A darker energy, if you will, more intense, but just as intriguing and satisfying. It has the same great elements of friendship.
Lucy knows she has to get away. She doesn't know if she is going mad, but she knows her father's new love interest is NOT what she presents herself as being. Why does no one believe her?
Then she meets a man she herself could fall in love with, but discovers he also has secrets.
And while Lucy is desperate to make money to survive, what is she willing to do?
It is good versus evil, up and down, the whole way through. Can Lucy find people she can trust? Will se discover the truth? Can she make her fether understand before it is too late?
A wonderful addition to the series and full of surprises!
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. Rosie’s Little Duck Pond Cafe series of novellas is centred around life in a village cafe. Each book can be read as a stand-alone story. The latest, ‘Lucy’s Great Escape’, is out now. Watch out for further tales of the Little Duck Pond Cafe, including the delicious ‘Log Fires & Toffee Apple Cake’, which will be published in autumn 2020.
