Secret Wishes and Summer Kisses on Lily Pond Lane
by Emile Harvale
About the Book:
Everyone’s got a secret wish in Little Pondale this summer.
Mia’s been exceptionally lucky since moving to Lily Pond Lane. But even on her honeymoon with the man of her dreams, she still has one remaining wish.
Ella wishes Gill would propose. But since Mia’s wedding something’s changed in their relationship. Now he’s spending time with newcomer, Tabbie Talbaine, Ella wishes Tabbie will leave as quickly as she arrived.
Tabbie wishes she hadn’t driven her car into a pond. But it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. When she discovers Hollywood heartthrob, Justin Lake’s staying in the village, getting an interview for her popular blog isn’t her only wish.
Bree was told she couldn’t have a baby. Now she’s expecting twins and is simply wishing it all goes well.
And as for Hettie … she wishes she could get her hands on an old map of the village. Because there’s something hidden in Little Pondale that Hettie Turner really wants to find.
Love is in the air on Lily Pond Lane as well as secret wishes! This is the last installment in this charming series, and it was one of my favorites!
There is a lot happening in the village. Mia and Jet are newlyweds, and she is very happy. However, she really wants to have children, and she isn’t sure it is in her future since the fortune-teller didn’t indicate that in the reading when she predicted her marriage.
Bree, Garrick, and little Flora are flourishing as a family. She never thought she would be able to have her own children, and now, she is expecting twins. She is just hoping things will go smoothly and safely.
Tabbie is a new character. She finds herself staying with the resident “witch,” Aurelia after running into Aurelia’s pond. Little does she realize, this could be her ticket to happiness with Hollywood hunk, Justin.
Ella feels like Gill is drifting away from her, and she isn’t sure he is drifting towards Tabbie. She really wants him to propose to her.
Hettie is a bit out of sorts. At first, she isn’t sure what it is. Then, she realizes it has to do with Aurelia and their tangled past.
It was great catching up with all the characters again. As always, I got to glimpse something new about each one. I enjoyed the fact that I got to learn more about Hettie and her past. As with all the other books, Harvale does a spectacular job of giving each character their own voice without all of them running together.
This is a story that combines myths, legends, superstitions, and romance. What results is a sweet, emotional, and beautiful book! I’m just sorry to say good-bye to this charming village and its residents!
