5 Enchanting Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was the perfect ending to this delightful serial.... from first book to last I was completely captivated by the engagin characters in these books... I enjoyed every minute I spend in Lily Pondale at Sunbeam cottage.... The characters, the plot, the setting, every aspect of these books was simply charming...

Looking back on the first book I never would have imagined where all these characters would have ended up.... but I am more than happy with this ending.... loved t

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 Mat

Favorite Quotes:

I was always saying to Hector, “You need to be more open, Hector. Keeping feelings pent up inside will be the death of you.” I was wrong about that, of course. The car hitting him, tossing him in the air, and him landing on his head was the death of him. But if the car hadn’t killed him, stress would have.

She sauntered towards him, which wasn’t as easy as she’d hoped, given that she was walking through water. Daniel Craig had made it look simple and ultra-sexy in the James Bond f

5☆ A Must Read!!

Yayy I'm so excited to be back for the fourth and final instalment. I love the Lily Pond Lane series so much and each time I get to read a new instalment I fall in love with it even more!

This is going to be a short but sweet review as I'm not prepared to give anything away!
Let's just say all those juicy little stories get tied up perfectly.

You most definitely have to read these instalments in order. You won't want to miss out on anything!

So many fantastic characters I've grown t

Entertaining, engaging, and magical!

In this fourth and final novel in The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane series, Trick or Treat, we head back to Sunbeam Cottage where special occasions will be celebrated, sinister mayhem makers will be identified, and all of Aunt Matilda’s secrets and plans will finally come to light.

The writing is fluid and clear. The characters are genuine, charming, and fun-loving. And the delightfully captivating plot is the perfect mix of twists, turns, well-timed surprises, fri

This has been a truly enjoyable series; the first three books set the scene and continued the story beautifully. This fourth one leads on where the third left off, and by the final page all open questions have been completely answered - my kind of read!

Mia is still living in Sunbeam Cottage, left to her by the great aunt she never met. Her friend Ella is still by her side, but finding out about Mattie is very much Mia's quest. With Garrick departing and a new man arriving in their midst, plus Lo

Well if you have been following the blog you will know I started the beginning of the year with an Emily Harvale book, the first introduction to Mia and the village of Little Pondale. As we know by now Mia has been left a charming cottage by Aunt Matilda, but has to remain there for a year before inheriting.

True to Emily’s style there have been plenty of obstacles in the way en-route, not all huge insurmountable ones just little things that need an inking of thought or common sense.

I have been eagerly awaiting the last instalment of this book and it met all my expectations and more.

I am totally in love with Little Pondale and was soooo good to be back there. It is such an idyllic place and you can't help but envision what life would be like living there. Unfortunately for Mia, it would be her cottage that I would love to live in. Not sure if she would be happy about a stranger coming to live there though. 

From the start of these books, you think you know how this story is

My Review The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane-Part Four: Trick or treat
by Emily Harvale


The Good
A lovely warm finale to a great book!

The Bad
The mystery the diaries and Gill gave this book a different feel at the end. It was warmer. I loved the Jett thing..

The Ugly
The best part of this whole series for me was the fortune teller. Then the secret spy and the issue of the house. They all were rounded up well.

4 Stars - I read this as part of a blog tour and will publish on Goodreads and Amazon

Ah, yes! Made it! So here we are into the ultimate, final book (well, there’s a Christmas one but this is the one that ties together all the mysteries, the will they won’t theys, etc), and I have to say I am happy out with the result. As you would expect there were some happy and some not so happy endings, a whole lot of drama and some sad moments (in particular Mattie’s contact with Mia, which made me take a second).

The drama, some of it the good old fashioned ‘get out of the way’ style (read i

I have really enjoyed the time I have been able to spend with the cast of the Lily Pond Lane series, it has been a complete treat to follow the story as it developed and I will certainly miss them!

I have to say that I am very happy with the ending and it was everything I had hope for. I have read that there is a Christmas novella due out later on in the year so I can't wait to read that and catch up with Mia and the gang - they almost feel like old friends

What another fantastic read. With books in a series like this I’m often left disappointed. But not here. This book was just as good if not more exciting than the rest in the series. The author knows just how to keep you on the edge of your seat wondering whatever will happen next. Roll on the next book

Holy pumpkins and witches – that fortune teller has A LOT to answer for! I didn’t think it was possible for each part of this series to get even better as it went on, but it certainly does!

Poor Mia is still in a pickle thanks to the fortune teller’s mystic Meg antics, and everyone around her is unsure whether to take the rest of the predictions with a pinch of salt or believe in them when they see some of what the fortu

I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.

Wow! What an action packed last part that was. You wouldn’t think that so much could happen in such a short time. Part Three of this serial left me totally intrigued with lots of questions going around in my head and I’m glad to say that they were all answered. There were also a few shocks and surprises along the way which even I didn’t expect.

Good News! There is now a Christmas edition coming soon that can be read as a standalone. It introduces some new characters but also catches you up with the current characters from the series. Can't wait for this to be released!

I'm nearing the end of the series now and I have to say I'm really disappointed that it's coming to an end! I've absolutely loved every part in this series and I love Emily Harvale's easy style of writing. It's uplifting, lighthearted and easy to read which is what makes it so enjoyable. I know I've said this in all of my other reviews on this series but I love that the cover changes slightly with each new novella. This one has a beautiful, deep purple sky with cute little pumpkin bunting hangin ...more

From the very beginning of this series I became involved with all the characters and I must say that I have enjoyed watching them all develop and that was such a fun thing to read.Emily gave them this charm, actually she give the all town and all the books a charm and humor that makes us feel like we are a part of the story.

With the characters developing and the ongoing storyline, the mysteries deepen and the Mattie’s life keeps unfolding. But with this final book we get the answers to our quest
I have to say this is the best installment yet in the series! More secrets about Mattie’s story are revealed. Readers also get to catch up what’s going on in Mia’s love life and where the fortune teller fits in! There is also a hint of danger….

I have been a fan of this series from the beginning. Everything about it is good, the writing, the character development, and the setting. I love how each time I return to the village the seasons have changed. I feel like I’m right there, and I loved that

I was very excited to reach the final part of Emily’s enchanting series, given how much I have enjoyed the previous parts and it did not disappoint at all.

Mia seems to have grown a pair in this final instalment, which I was very glad to see, and finally takes her love life in her own and hands and goes all out to grab what she wants.

We find out all of Aunt Mattie’s secrets at last with the aid of dashing newcomer to the book, Gill, who turns out to be a lovely character and suitable foil for Mia

Looking forward to Autumn as the weather begins to change, I relished the chance to finally find out just what Mia's Great-aunt Matilda has been getting up to! There are lots of story strands which come together in this fourth and final part of the series and we finally see some of the characters in their true light. More than that, I cannot say- my lips are sealed!

Anyone who has stuck with Mia's story throughout will love returning to Lily Pond Lane. By now, we have a clear picture of just wha

I couldn't wait to go back to Little Pondale and visit Mia in the cottage that had been left to her by her Great Aunt Matilda. I desperately needed to know which way Mia's complicated love life would go, but more than anything I wanted to find out everything about the mysterious Mattie.

The conclusion of The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane series didn't disappoint. All the elements were tied up neatly and the book gave me a warm, cosy glow. There was romance, mystery, humour and a rather good-looking v

Loved, loved, LOVED the final book of this super cute, whimsical, cozy, and hilarious saga. I was super sad to turn that last page because I want so much more of life on Lily Pond Lane. However, a little birdie (aka the author) told me that there will be a Christmas Lily Pond Lane coming soon!!! Yes, please!!!!!! 💕

Enjoy you time at Sunbeam Cottage!

The Lilly Pond Lane series is a fun read with the right mix of romance, mystery and modern day fairy tale. If Little Pondale was a real village it would soon be overrun with those of us seeking all three!
