The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
Escape to the seaside village of Little Pondale with Part Two of this heart-warming and romantic, four-part serial.
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…
5 Enchanting Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 I was so eager to get back to Lily Pondale that I picked this book up immediately after the first in the serial… I would strongly encourage you to read the first book before you start this one… once again the charm and the beauty of this quaint village filled with gorgeous men and quirky characters, made me want to pack my bags and quickly head to the UK…. but then my vacation hopes were dashed when I found out this is a fictional Village??? How disappointing 😞
Mia and gang are back… Love is in the air, however this book Took a bit of a different turn than I was expecting… and now I am hoping it heads in the direction I want it to, but… Mia girl you are so fickle! Along with the Romance we have a dose of mystery…. what is the real story behind Matilda and why are there no pictures of her?
Love all the fun events in the village… the kite festival…the Fete… The Midsummer nude bathing… not too sure about that last one? And I’m still not 100% sure what a Fete is, but every book I read that takes place in a small village in the UK seems to have one and it looks fun?!?!
Cannot wait to get to the third installment in this serial… so much romantic uncertainty and the mystery of Matilda still to be solved… in addition to this the arrival of Mia’s mother has definitely added some color to the story…. and how correct will the fortuneteller be in her predictions???
Absolutely recommend this charming serial… A perfect summer read and each installment can be read in an afternoon spent by the pool☀️

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?
