Book : A Kiss in the Snow, Little Duck Pond Cafe
Author : Rosie Green
Publication Date: 31st October 2020
Hey everyone! Hope all of you are doing good! I’m participating in the Blog Blitz for A Kiss In The Snow, the thirteenth standalone novella of The Little Duck Pond Cafe series! I’ll be reviewing the book as well 😁
After a cruel twist of fate sends her hurtling into a black hole of despair, Carrie is absolutely dreading the festive season – especially with sister, Krystle, being even more demanding of her time and energy than usual. But then friend Maddy offers Carrie a lifeline: the chance to get away from it all in a holiday cottage in the gorgeous little village of Silverbells. Deciding that a few weeks of tranquillity – reading, baking and going for long walks in the countryside – might just restore her mood, Carrie is quick to take up the offer. But on arriving, it very soon becomes clear that this break is going to be anything but peaceful!
An unwelcome houseguest proves unsettling enough – especially one who whistles loudly first thing in the morning and is far too cheerful for his own good – but finding herself drawn into the spooky mystery of her missing neighbour means there really isn’t much time for personal reflection. And then love comes knocking, and Carrie is forced to decide exactly where her heart lies.
Will this festive season be the disaster Carrie predicted? Or will Santa be good to her and deliver her heart’s desire? One thing’s for sure – this will be a Christmas Carrie will never, ever forget…

A Kiss In The Snow had the cosiest storyline! 😍 I loved every moment of reading Carrie’s story. The plot of the book kept me captivated all throughout the book ~ which is very rare for festive books since all of them tend to follow a similar theme. The enchanting setting of the village of Silverbells, the mystery, the drama and the Christmas festivities in A Kiss In The Snow gave me the escape I needed right now. I’m so glad that I got the chance to read this wonderful book!
Romance is not the focal point of A Kiss In The Snow to be honest ~ it main feature is Carrie’s self discovery in Silverbells. Carrie was a very interesting character, and I loved reading about her. She wore her heart on her sleeve, never hesitated to help others and was always ready to sacrifice her own happiness to make other people smile. She was the perfect female lead because of her kind nature. Her growth throughout the story was remarkable. It made me really happy to see her stand up against wrongful situations, specially when she made Maud realize how awful she had been to the village people.
All the secondary characters in A Kiss in The Snow were lovable and added their own charms to the story’s plot! The twin-sister dynamic between Krystle and Carrie was one of my favorite parts of the book! ALSO RONAN WAS JUST PERFECT. I wish we got to know more about him though 😦
A Kiss In The Snow was the perfect Christmas read! I can’t recommend it enough. Go pick it up ASAP!

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.
