review Ivy Lane

S her Jazz Ukulele patch of the allotment blossom but also herself and her friendship with her fellow gardeners I have to admit the author totally got me lovestory wise In a good way Most of the time I feared a certain outcome that I couldn t imagine toossibly turn out in a satisfactory way Every appearance of the respective guy was either clumsily written or creepy That dampened my mood a little while reading this book Fortunately my fears didn t come true Instead I m uite satisfied with Ivy Lane is about Tilly Parker who had a horrible time the last 18 months She needs to get a new Off 13 perspective in life so she accepts a job as arimary school teacher in a small town called Kingsfield and takes on a Amata Means Beloved plot in the Ivy Lane allotments near her house Soon Tilly starts to make friends with the other Ivy Lane gardeners and is being drawn and into their lovely worldI adored the Ivy Laneeople and their stories They were all very cute At first I wasn t really sure if all this gardening stuff would be for me but as it turned out it was Maybe that s because it was not that much gardening in the end But still I kind of want to own an allotment myself and grow fruits or whatever The atmosphere of the book was so cozy and nice all the time I loved it What I also loved was that Tilly s story is split into four arts or four seasons like so we accompany her throughout one whole year So we have one year to unravel Tilly s ast and find a new meaning for her future lifeI am uite sad that the book is over now because I don t really want to say goodbye to Ivy Lane allotments Oh and the girl from Appleby Farm appears towards the end of the book so I already got to know her a tiny bit which was nice because Appleby Farm will be one of my next reads Sweet happy ending book.
