The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane~Part Four: Trick or Treat
by Emily Harvale
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.
But a lot can happen in a very short time, and life in Little Pondale is not going quite as Mia hoped. She may have finally beaten one fear, but now heartbreak threatens to drown her.
And when at last, she starts to unravel the mystery of Matilda’s past, she uncovers an extraordinary plan for her own future. Now just who can Mia trust?
As the nights draw in and cold winds steal through Sunbeam Cottage, she turns to an unlikely source for comfort and support. But with the fortune teller’s warning still ringing in her ears, is Mia about to make the biggest mistake of her life?
I have to say this is the best installment yet in the series! More secrets about Mattie’s story are revealed. Readers also get to catch up what’s going on in Mia’s love life and where the fortune teller fits in! There is also a hint of danger….
I have been a fan of this series from the beginning. Everything about it is good, the writing, the character development, and the setting. I love how each time I return to the village the seasons have changed. I feel like I’m right there, and I loved that this one happened to take place at Halloween. Mia’s love life seems to change with each book as well, but I like that. She is looking for her Mr. Right, and she should never settle for just any man. However, my favorite thing about this book was the insight into Mattie. It is quite a feat for a writer to make a character into such an integral part of the plot of not only a book but, in this case a series, who is no longer living. Yes, the series is centered around Mia, but in my opinion, the series is also very much centered around Mattie. It is her actions that drive the series!!!! That is AMAZING!!!!!!
If all that wasn’t enough to make this such a great book, Harvale has one heck of a twist in store for her readers at the end of the book! If you like a book with great characters, a great storyline with romance and mystery, look no further than The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane. If you are like me, you will be ready to return as soon as you have finished the last page.
