It is the start of a brand new blog tour and I'm delighted to be sharing my review for The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Part Three by Emily Harvale. First of all though let's take a look at the description for the book...
Part Three – Autumn leaves
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 equally astonished to discover she’d only inherit the place if she lives there for a year.
But it didn’t take long for Mia and her friends, Ella and Garrick to settle in. Now Mia’s mum, Lori has joined them, and they’re all enjoying village life. Mia’s keen to overcome her fear of water and with Garrick by her side, she’s confident about the future.
Until a fortune teller’s predictions give everyone cause for concern. Now Mia’s not so sure of anything, except that someone still wants her to leave. That makes her more determined to learn all she can about Matilda – and the codicil.
But as the mists roll in over the sea, are autumn winds making passions cool? And when more than one unexpected visitor gives Mia a shocking surprise, is everything about to change?
This is turning out to be a fabulous series of stories and as soon as I finish I look forward to reading the next one. As it is a continuation of a story it is best read in order, I would hate for anyone to be confused. So I highly recommend picking up book one!
It has been so lovely getting to know Mia, Ella and Garrick along with the other villagers in Little Pondale. In this story there are a few surprises that I loved and I can't wait to see what is in store next for this group of characters. By the way I am trying to be pretty vague here!
There is plenty of entertaining moments as Mia settles into life in this tiny village with new friendships and romance all keeping her pretty busy. The thing I love though is that at the heart of the story there is a mystery regarding her Great-Aunt and I love how each time more information is revealed.
If you are like me you will love the drama, fun and uplifting vibes that this story has and it will leave you eager for the next part!
Fun, charming and very entertaining!
