The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
by Emily Harvale
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?
I know I must sound like a broken record, but I can’t help it. Emily Harvale has really grabbed my heart with this little series! There is so much packed into the pages of this book from Mia’s uncertainty about her love life to the continued mystery of Mattie.
The book opens pretty much right where Part 2 ended. Mia is still worried and thinking about what the fortune teller had to share with her. Will her predictions become truth? And, if so, where does that leave her? She will find out soon enough with a few twists thrown in. All of the regular characters are back, and I was so glad to be back in that charming village with them. I’m purposely not really delving deep into Mia’s relationship issues. I REALLY don’t want to ruin anything.
As with the earlier books, this one grabbed my attention from the very beginning…new clues emerge, and Harvale does an outstanding job of creating more questions as some appeared to be answered. Just like with all the other books, I’m so excited for the next one in the series. AND SURPRISE….Part 4 is already out!!!!
