Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Return to Lily Pond Lane by Emily Harvale

 My Review:

Mia is having nightmares about what is going to happen but can’t remember just what it is when she awakens, sobbing. However, it is definitely a portent as this heralds the arrival of a dreadful time for the folk who live in Little Pondale and everyone is wondering just what might be next.

It is a story of tragedy, emergencies, relationships and community. Just how everyone responds to the dramas and supports each other to move forward is key to life in Little Pondale and to this story. For anyone who has read the previous books in this series, it is great to catch up on all the characters we have got to know but I still think this would be an enjoyable read if you haven’t read the earlier stories as the author fills in relevant background information on characters and events as the story progresses. It has left me eager to discover what happens next in this delightful community – and I’m very happy to confess that I’ve already got that story on my Kindle ready to read!

If you’re looking for a warm community with great characters, with plenty of twists and turns alongside multiple romances and relationships, look no further – this is a great addition to the series and a fantastic story in its own right.

I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.


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.
