What they say:
Life couldn’t be better for Mia and her friends in Little Pondale – until tragedy strikes…
Mia Ward is on cloud nine after a magical Christmas and New Year and she isn’t the only one. Everyone on Lily Pond Lane seems to be living in blissful harmony. Until tragedy strikes… not once, but twice. And as Hettie Turner points out: ‘Bad things always come in threes.’
Whilst the other residents of Little Pondale are wondering what might happen next, Mia is busy worrying about her friends and trying to help them with their grief. But she needs to be careful. Just when she thought she had everything, there’s a very real chance she might lose the only thing she truly wants.
The Review: Okay, so I’m going to have to be cagey about this one because I’ve just seen from the blurbs that the disasters that strike Little Pondale aren’t mentioned. So here we go!
From the off of this book there was drama and eventful moments galore and I can’t even tell you how fast it went for me. I settled in so quickly into Little Pondale, happy, as I always am, to be back in one of the most charming and homely settings of any series I’ve read.
We are re-acquainted with all the inhabitants (warning there are a lot of them, just so you know to be caught up with the other books!) as they navigate everything thrown at them and of course all the romance that flutters in between. This is most definitely one for the people who like their chick lit cosy, warm and on the pulse pacing wise, and I loved getting back to all the characters. I do have to say that the big event that caused the named return to lily pond lane made me want to slap some of the residents (most of all Mia and Jet) as they discussed romance when the person returning was going through something much huger than their worries. Saying that I beyond enjoyed and cannot wait to get to the next book in the series! Thanks so much to Rachel’s Random Resources for the book in return for an honest review.
