The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
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?
5 Enchanting Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
It was so nice to be back in Lily Pondale at Sunbeam cottage with these fabulous characters! At the end of the last book Mia and friends visited a fortuneteller… what did the fortuneteller see in their future? And do these fortunes come true? This is the third book in this four part serial… I would strongly encourage you to read these books in order, otherwise you will truly be lost…. not to mention you will want to spend every minute possible with these delightful characters!
This was probably my favorite book in this serial so far… I love the addition of Lori, Mia’s mother she is quite the character… this book was also filled with many surprising plot twists all taking the story in the direction I wanted it to go… don’t you love when an author can read your mind? We also got to know a little bit more about mysterious Aunt Matilda and her intriguing past… it is quite amazing how much fabulousness is packed into this little book….
It’s hard for me to properly gush when I don’t want to give anything away… just know this is a delightful story set in a charming village filled with engaging characters… from first page to last you feel as though you are living in this village and friends with these characters…
The fourth book is sitting on my Kindle but I think I’m putting it off because I’m not ready to say goodbye to these characters…
Absolutely recommend this enchanting serial… perfect for reading poolside in the summer or fireside in the autumn!
