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…
The story is set over four instalments of which this is the second one. To get full enjoyment I would suggest reading in order, especially as I loved getting to know the village and the people that live there in the first one.
It was so good to be back in Little Pondale, I can’t tell you how eager I was to be able to read more about Mia and all the other characters. There is a bit more of a sombre feel this time round. Love and attraction is very much the main theme and as we all know, love never runs smoothly. Not in films and books anyway, that’s for sure!
It’s probably a good job that the village is a fictional one. With all the hunky single men there, they would have other single people coming in droves as there certainly seems more men than women in the village. No what’s not to love about that?
As with the last book, I am desperate to read the next instalment to see what will happen next and to get behind the enigma of Matilda, Mia’s great aunt. The author certainly knows how to tease the readers and ensure they come back for more.
The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane is a charming and engaging read that I struggled to put down. Highly recommend it to lovers of this genre.
