It’s review time! And today I bring you “The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane – Part Three: Autumn Leaves“, by Emily Harvale. And I want to thank Rachel, from Rachel’s Random Resources, for allowing me to join in the blog tour that she hosted. And I also want to thank Rachel and Emily for the eCopy of the book, in exchange for my honest review.
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?

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.
By now you may have read my other reviews of the previous books in this series and it may not be a surprise to all of you that I’m still loving it.
With each book I got this feeling that was getting closer and closer to the characters, they feel like they are friends, family or just acquaintances. In this book I felt even more connected to the small town, like I was living there and part of the group.
Mia’s relationships (friendship and romantic) keep getting better and better, and I honestly can’t comment on the particular aspects of that because I want you guys to go read the series and go through the motions of her busy (and crazy) life, from book one until this third book, but I can guarantee that you will love every development as much as I did.
And if you are wondering about Aunt Matilda (Mattie)… Well, Emily doesn’t forget about her in this book. We get more information about her and the mystery keeps going, and that’s something I love about this series.
Emily has a way of making the story light and at the same time it keep us curious with the mystery and the amazingly engaging characters. And I applaud her for the fantastic work in this third part of the series.
It makes you feel as if you have return home every time you read a book in the series, and this book wasn’t different.

The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane – Part Four: Trick or Treat is published 7th August.
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?
