My Review

This is the last book in the Lily Pond Lane series.  It’s made me feel quite sad really as I’ve read all the other books in the series and have come to know all the characters and loved them all!  So, for my final visit to the village of Little Pondale, I set aside a bit of “me time” so I wouldn’t be disturbed!  The book is only novella sized, so is perfect for settling down with for a couple of hours!

As usual, the author has brought the characters to life and I became hooked into the story before the end of the first chapter.  I loved the introduction of Tabbie, a new character whose car ended up in Aurelia’s pond at the beginning of the book!  I also loved having Aurelia involved more in the storyline and thought she was a wonderful character that enthralled us with tales of her ancestors.  Of course the book did feature everyone else we’ve met over the past few books and it was great to see, in the final book, how much all their characters have developed!

Would I like to see the series continue??  Yes, of course I would!!  I would never want to see a fabulous series finish, but I am excited for what the author will come up with next!!  These books have been a joy to read and this final instalment has tied everything up nicely and left all of its dedicated fans with a satisfied warm feeling and a smile on our faces!  Goodbye Lily Pond Lane, it’s has been the utmost pleasure to have shared in your stories!!
