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?

New one review witch 2017

After their visit to the fortune teller at the end of the last book, ‘Summer Secrets‘, Mia, Ella, Garrick, and Lori are in very different head spaces.

Mia doesn’t want to talk about what the psychic told her. She loves Garrick but in her heart, she knows she also has feelings for Jet and the psychic has spotted this.

Ella is off planning her future life with boyfriend Justin after the information the psychic told her, but Justin has started avoiding her and he seems to be cooling towards her. She believes he is the man she will spend her life with – Surely he is the one the psychic was telling her about? She was also told she will soon become an Aunt and believes that Mia is pregnant and with Mia realising that she never got her contraceptive injection before heading to Little Pondale, could she be right?

Garrick is also being overly coy about what he was told and starts rushes into decisions about his future and Mia’s, but does Mia have the heart to tell him to slow down?

Lori it seems is the only one ecstatic about what she was told, she has gone for a very long time without love since her husband and Mia’s father died, now she is ready to open her heart to a younger, American man.

Once again we return to Little Pondale in this third book in The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane series and join in the lives of the newest residents as their lives become even more complicated than they already were. We also get to discover more about Mattie, Mia’s Great Aunt and some of the secrets she was hiding.

These last three books have been a real pleasure to read. The main characters have all been a joy to get to know, as well as the villagers. I now look forward to reading book four Trick or Treat and hope that Mia gets the answers both about Mattie and her future that she is looking for.
