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.
This is the final book in the Lily Pond Lane series.
So, we have come to the final book in the Lily Pond Lane series. I can’t believe this is the final book and really hope the author carries on. There is so much more that can come from these characters and I for one am not ready to see them go. I feel like a small child wanting to throw a paddy as I have so loved this series and I feel bereft now that it is the end.
Anyway, enough of how I feel. Was this book good? What a daft question, of course it was! As with the rest of the books in the series, the author has given us another engaging and cosy read to lose ourselves into. Only problem with this as the other ones, I just devoured it far to quickly as I love catching up with the residents.
We get to meet a couple of new characters in this book which gives us a bit of a spookier storyline which I really enjoyed. I always love finding out more about the history of a place and to see if there is any truth in old wives tales.
Secret Wishes and Summer Kisses on Lily Pond Lane was actually a really good way to end this series regardless of me not wanting it to end. It is a compelling and wonderful novella that makes you feel all warm and cosy inside. Very mixed emotions with this one as I so enjoyed it but am sad knowing that there won’t be anymore. Luckily I can always go back and re read them again. Highly recommended.
