Happy Sunday all! Exciting day… my oldest is coming home from University for two weeks before he goes back for summer school! And I am part of the blog Tour for this lovely book💜 many thanks to Rachel for the invitation and to Emily Harvale for her delightful story🐸
The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
Mia Ward is amazed to be told she has inherited 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’s even more astonished to discover she’ll only inherit the place if she actually lives there for one year. Mia’s a city girl at heart, not to mention she’s afraid of water, so the fact the cottage backs on to a sandy beach, is not, in her opinion, a bonus.
But Mia’s struggling to pay her rent since being fired for inappropriate behaviour at the office party, and her boyfriend’s also dumped her. When her best friend, Ella and Ella’s brother, Garrick offer to help her move and settle in, Mia decides to see this as a new beginning.
It may also be the start of an exciting adventure because now Mia wants to know just who, exactly, was great-aunt Matilda. And she’s determined to find out. But it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale….
5 Captivating Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
I am such a sucker when it comes to a book set in a cottage by the sea in the UK… I mean how lovely would it be to live in a cottage named Sunbeam? A cottage in a village called Lily Pondale that backs up to the beach… A village filled with friendly people, not to mention nothing but gorgeous men… not sure what is stopping me from packing my bags immediately? Oh yes… reality! That is why I read to escape reality and so I Can visit a lovely village such as this…. and this book was every bit as charming as the title/cottage/village implies….
Mia is a little down on her luck, lost her job and her man… but now she has the opportunity to inherit a cottage… Mia is a city girl and not quite sure how she’s going to take to living in the country… but the cottage is free and if she lives there for a year she will inherit it outright…. so along with her BFF Ella and Ella’s twin brother Garrick she heads to Lily Pondale…
So many new discoveries… Learning about her great aunt Matilda that Mia never even knew she had…. A cottage full of hidden nooks and crannies and secrets… and a village filled with gorgeous eligible men, Romance is bound to be in the air soon…. A delightful beginning to this serial filled with new beginnings…
Absolutely recommend as a quick delightful summer read, you could definitely finish this in one afternoon by the pool or on the beach…

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…
