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?

New one review witch 2017

We’re back in Little Pondale with Mia, Ella, Lori and the residents of the seaside town, for the fourth instalment in the series.

It’s really hard to write a review of this book without giving away any spoilers to the earlier books, as this final part basically wraps everything up that has happened over the course of the series.

Mia now has access to her Great-Aunt Mattie’s diaries and has been left a note to read them in order, starting when Mattie was twelve-years-old.

Someone is still trying to force Mia out of town and they have noticed how much she likes Jet and is now focusing their attention on him, but they didn’t expect someone else to get in their way of hurting him.

The whole series has been a delight to read. I’ve enjoyed getting to know and spend the time with the characters. They have truly all grown on me.

We finally get to discover who the culprit is that is trying to run Mia out of town and why – Although I had worked this out a while ago. We also find out all about Mattie’s life and who her assets will go to if Mia leaves the cottage before her year is up. This did come as a surprise, but I certainly wasn’t shocked by the decision and think Mattie was a very clever woman.

I am also so glad to hear that Ms. Harvale has written a Christmas special as I’m not ready to say goodbye to the characters and their hectic lives just yet.

If you are looking for an engaging, fun series that will hook you into the lives of the characters and set in an adorable, quaint English seaside village, then this is the series for you.
