The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Part 2 Summer Secrets **Blog Tour review ** #LilyPondLane






Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for Part 2 of Emily Harvale's The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane series: Summer Secrets. 


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...

 My Thoughts
Part 2 of this series did not disappoint me and I so enjoyed it that I was looking for Part 3 as soon as I had finished. The characters of Mia, Ella and Garrick were as sparky as before and there is a plethora of clues to make you think that there is more to Mia's aunt, Matilda, than meets the eye. Trying to keep up with the romantic pairings within the story gets harder and there is plenty of scope to think that Parts 3 and 4 will turn up some surprises,

    This is a lovely novella to take you through a summer's afternoon as the writing flows freely and before you know it, you have read it through. My favourite character is still Mia and you will her to sort out her feelings about certain people. Let's hope, she can pick her way through the clues to find out more about her mysterious Aunt Matilda.

In short: the series continues...

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?
