Jingle Bells in June, Little Duck Pond Café
Mackenzie Morris, newest recruit at the Little Duck Pond Café, is the perfect addition to the team.
But beneath her smiles, Kenzie is hiding a dark secret. It’s the reason she fled to Sunnybrook, desperate for a fresh start that would help to lay the ghosts that haunt her.
The challenge of turning her hobby into a business is a welcome distraction, and to her relief, she finds that her range of quirky pottery mugs and vases appear to be in demand. Alone and scared when she arrived, she’s slowly making friends and starting to feel as if she belongs. Meeting a lovely guy called Aidan seems to confirm this and it looks as if love might be on the horizon.
But then Kenzie makes a devastating discovery that threatens to crush her new-found happiness.
Aidan is the one person she yearns to confide in. He’s also the one person who can never know the truth . . .
I wasn’t expecting jingle Bells in June to keep me rooted to the spot like it did, and it is also not the light chick-lit with a bit of Christmas thrown in as I thought it would be! But, this is not a negative it is an amazing thought provoking read.
This is the first of Rosie’s books I have read and it is also part of The Duck Pond series, number 21!! But, it can be totally read as a standalone novel.
Rosie deals with some very deep subjects that brought out many different emotions for me, I literally could not put this book down, the characters are true to life and Mackenzie is a character that you are rooting for the whole way through the story.
There are high’s and lows within the pages of Jingle Bells In June and you do feel as if you are on a white knuckle ride with twists and turns that you don’t expect. This book will stay with me for a very long time!
