What they say: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?
The Review: Ooh, this was a good un! So, as usual things are happening fast in Little Pondale, with everyone and their mother (literally) falling in love all over the place. I’ll be honest, I have never seen so many people decide they’re in love and ready for marriage and the happy ever after as opposed to simply liking someone or asking them on a date, but I digress. This is most definitely my favourite of the series so far as a fortune teller that seems to be bang on the mark causes absolute chaos by telling most of our characters something that has them thinking, most of them getting it quite wrong!
Mia is once again thrown off as we try to figure out who we can trust (at this stage I’m firmly in the X Files aka ‘Trust no one’ camp). There’s drama aplenty, including some that makes me want to bang people’s heads together (no spoilers here so I’m not telling you who) and also it makes me firmly believe that one person needs to be out of the running for Mia’s affections because they are getting on my last nerve!!
Loads of romance, mystery and I moved straight onto book 4. As always, very much recommended!
