A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane by Emily Harvale #Review


I am delighted to be part of the celebrations for the latest Lily Pond Lane book, A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane. This is growing into quite a series. If you want to take a look, I have reviewed previous visits there here: New Beginnings   |  Summer Secrets   |  Autumn Leaves  |  Trick or Treat |  Return to Lily Pond Lane.

The Angel Bell is ringing for Mia and Jet’s Big Day – but will the Wedding of the Year go without a hitch?



Every bride wants the perfect wedding and Mia Ward is no exception. But she is the only bride in Little Pondale and everyone in the village has ideas for her Big Day. Drowning in suggestions, Mia needs some help.



When she bumps into childhood friend, Breanna Wright on a shopping trip to London, Mia’s convinced it’s Fate. Breanna’s only ambition was to be a wedding planner with her own business, The Wright Wedding … so Mia doesn’t hesitate.



Breanna’s now got three months to plan a wedding where the sky’s the limit, budget-wise. She should be over the moon. Especially as she’ll get a chance to see old friends again, including her first love. There’s just one tiny hitch ... Breanna doesn’t have a wedding-planning business.



She should tell Mia there has been a slight mistake, but as usual Breanna’s life isn’t running smoothly and she could really use a break. And when you’ve dreamt about planning weddings all your life, how difficult can it be?



Will this be the chance Breanna’s longed for? Or will Mia’s Dream Wedding be Breanna’s biggest disaster yet?


My Thoughts


This proved to be a great episode in Mia and Jet's story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really admire how Emily introduces new characters into her stories and in A Wedding on Lily Pond Lane, we met Breanna. She turned out to be a well drawn and believable character with some human flaws but a great heart. She fitted in just right!

    This was always going to be an uplifting and warm read. It felt as though it sped by as all the characters came together and new romances bloomed. Escapist? Yes. Romantic? Yes. Comfort reading? Yes. It has been a great series and I am just hoping that Emily will return there someday soon.

In short: Romance blooms ever in Little Pondale.
