Everyone’s got a secret wish in Little Pondale this summer.
Mia’s been exceptionally lucky since moving to Lily Pond Lane. But even on her honeymoon with the man of her dreams, she still has one remaining wish.
Ella wishes Gill would propose. But since Mia’s wedding something’s changed in their relationship. Now he’s spending time with newcomer, Tabbie Talbaine, Ella wishes Tabbie will leave as quickly as she arrived.
Tabbie wishes she hadn’t driven her car into a pond. But it could be the best thing that’s ever happened to her. When she discovers Hollywood heartthrob, Justin Lake’s staying in the village, getting an interview for her popular blog isn’t her only wish.
Bree was told she couldn’t have a baby. Now she’s expecting twins and is simply wishing it all goes well.
And as for Hettie … she wishes she could get her hands on an old map of the village. Because there’s something hidden in Little Pondale that Hettie Turner really wants to find.
I love this series and I was delighted to see that there was another standalone release out and couldn’t wait to catch up with the characters, both my mum and myself really enjoy this series so it was touch and go as to who would get to finish the book first – and it was me!
I thought that the story was great, I really enjoyed getting to know Tabby and I loved her arrival in to the book! The location is fabulous as normal and the more books I read, the more I really, really want to visit!
This one does read fine as a stand-alone but I would really recommend reading the other books if you get a chance so you can see the character’s backgrounds and what brought them to Lily Pond Lane
It is 4.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 5 stars for Goodreads and Amazon, it is such a lovely easy book to read, the author has a really nice writing style and it was a joy to read – highly recommended!!
