I'm thrilled to be taking part in the blog tour for The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane - Part Two by Emily Harvale and sharing my review today. First of all though let's take a loom at the description for the book...
Escape to the seaside village of Little Pondale with Part Two of this heart-warming and romantic, four-part serial.
Mia Ward was amazed to inherit her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda. She was even more astonished to discover she’d only inherit the place if she lives there for a year.
Now Mia and her friends, Ella and Garrick are embracing village life. Garrick’s also embracing someone in The Frog and Lily, so Mia turns her attention to one or two of her sexy, single neighbours. But great-aunt Matilda remains an enigma and Mia’s still determined to discover who she was.
When Mia’s mum, Lori arrives, she’s eager to see what the summer has to offer. There’s the Kite Festival, the Fête, the Frog Hill Run, but what really appeals to Lori, much to Mia’s horror, is the Midsummer Night’s naked bathing in the pond at Frog’s Hollow.
As sweltering days surrender to sultry nights, love is definitely in the air. And when an incident means Mia has to face her greatest fear, help arrives from a surprising source. But one thing is clear... someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale...
So after finishing Part one of The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane I couldn't wait to pick up Part Two and see what was in store for Mia next. I wasn't disappointed in the slightest as more questions are raised making me even more curious. The story kept me on my toes wondering what would happen next. I couldn't help but smile at the complicated love lives that the people in this village share. It is such an engaging story with characters that are likeable and in a way feel like friends now. There is still the mystery at it's heart but I felt like the characters personalities were explored more in this book along with a few surprises along the way!
Let's just say that life in a small village is never dull and I love the lively and entertaining characters that live there. I couldn't help but read this book in one go as I became even more attached to them. There is still that uplifting vibe but also a slightly more serious side as romances blossom along with life getting just that little bit more complicated especially for Mia.
A fun filled story with love, friendships and secrets!
Five stars from me!
