The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
Today I am so excited to be part of the Blog Tour for part three of The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane (Autumn Leaves).Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on to the tour.
The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane
Part Three – Autumn leaves
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?
It was lovely to visit The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane again and get to know all the familiar characters even more. I strongly recommend that the books are read in order to get the full benefit of Emily Harvale’s wonderful storytelling.
The book starts exactly where we left it, just after everyone has their fortune taken at the village fete. Some characters are over the moon with the predictions, others preferring to keep their fortunes quiet.
Mia is still living in her cottage with friends Ella and Garrick. Mum Lori comes for a visit and there are plenty of laughs along the way.
We find out more about secretive Great Aunt Matty who left the cottage to Mia, and as one mystery is solved, another crops up to keep us guessing. There is an interesting twist that I wasn’t expecting and all the characters are engaged in their own subplots.
I shall be looking forward to the next installment to see what happens to Mia and the other residents of Little Pond Lane

Author Bio –
Having lived and worked in London for several years, Emily returned to her home town of Hastings where she now spends her days writing… and chatting on social media. Emily is a Member of the SoA, a PAN member of the RWA and a Pro Member of ALLi. She’s an Amazon bestseller and a Kindle All Star. Emily loves writing and her stories are sure to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.
Emily says, “I write about friendship, family and falling in love. I believe in happing endings.” When she isn’t writing, she can be found enjoying the stunning East Sussex coast and countryside, or in a wine bar with friends, discussing life, love and the latest TV shows. Chocolate cake is often eaten. She dislikes housework almost as much as she dislikes anchovies – and will do anything to avoid both.
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.
But a lot can happen in a very short time, and life in Little Pondale is not going quite as Mia hoped. She may have finally beaten one fear, but now heartbreak threatens to drown her.
And when at last, she starts to unravel the mystery of Matilda’s past, she uncovers an extraordinary plan for her own future. Now just who can Mia trust?
As the nights draw in and cold winds steal through Sunbeam Cottage, she turns to an unlikely source for comfort and support. But with the fortune teller’s warning still ringing in her ears, is Mia about to make the biggest mistake of her life?
