I hope you are all doing well this lovely Wednesday. Today I bring you now only a story I work way back to share with you guys, but I also bring you a review. Right now!
Christmas on Lily Pond Lane” follows The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Series, written by the amazing Emily Harvale, you will remember some of the awesome characters that gave me and all the other readers such a fun time, and now of course you get to enjoy a special novella with that same tone,
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, and Emily for the eCopy of this book and for allowing me to join in the fun and by being a part of the blog tour with my honest review of the book.
Snow is falling in Little Pondale, lights are twinkling and the smell of pine trees and roasting chestnuts fills the air …
But Mia Ward is in a bit of a jam. She’d planned to rent out Corner Cottage for Christmas but thanks to best friend, Ella Swann, it’s double-booked. Now Mia’s got to let one ‘party’ down, or find another cottage – fast.
Best friends and single mums, Cathy Cole and Christy Franks want their kids to have an old-fashioned Christmas. Ice-skating, carol singing, making decorations, and tobogganing are on their list of festive fun and Little Pondale is the perfect place. Especially as it has no mobile phone reception. That will make it harder for Cathy to be found.
City banker, Leo Hardman is wondering if renting a cottage for Christmas as an anniversary surprise for his parents, was such a good idea. Little Pondale may be where his parents met, but his mum doesn’t seem pleased to be back, and his brother, Hal isn’t happy that the village is so tiny and only has one pub.
Meanwhile, Jenny Lake is settling in at her cousin’s bakery, having left her (broken) heart in Florence, but Christmas was never her favourite time of year. And Reverend Glen Fox has taken over at St Michael and All Angels. He’s glad it’s a temporary post because village life is not for him.
But luckily, for locals and visitors alike, there’s a sleigh-load of Christmas magic heading for Lily Pond Lane; enough to put a sparkle in everyone’s festive season. Although Christmas may not go quite as each of them has planned.

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.

Great addition to the series. For someone that always wants more books when I love a series (which was the case of this series for me), I loved that I could come back to Little Pondale and enjoy another fun and exciting book.
As you probably know I followed this series from beginning to end and I feel like I’m a part of that town in a way. I feel like I know the characters and that made me connect even more with this story, despite some newcomers, because that just made it possible for the opportunity of all new tales in the wonderful village of Little Pondale.
This book still maintained the classic “Emily Harvale” style that I saw in the other books I have read. She put some funny moments, some romance, some of that small town feeling of everyone knows everyone and everything, and that sense of closeness that exists in a village, besides the fact that she still made the plot entertaining and the storyline engaging.
Of course, since this is a special book because of the Christmas theme, it was happy and full of holiday spice and snow. It’s the perfect escape for the holiday season. The funniest Christmas-y book that I have read in a while, and it made me want to go get some more Christmas’ books to read right NOW!
