Seedlings organizing bake sales and planning seasonal partiesAs the seasons pass will Tilly learn to stop hiding amongst the sweetpeas and let people back into her life – and her hear For me everything about Ivy Lane is just perfect the characters setting pace intrigue humour and romance all are served up in just the right uantities I loved every page and waxed lyrical about it at every opportunityThe story is about a character Tilly Parker and the people she meets and becomes friends with when she takes on a new hobby as an allotment owner Tilly had moved to the area looking for a fresh start from what we're not told but it does involve a man called James She takes on an allotment as a way of seeking the outdoors and some solitude a way to regain her euilibrium'Peace and solitude' I could have told her finding that would be difficult my husband had an allotment for several years and his 'allotment friends' as I called them were all different characters and ages from all walks of life privacy and solitude don't go together when you become part of an allotment community Cathy had clearly done her research as he characterisations were so accurate Our that's the 'royal our' allotment was in the same condition as Tilly's when we took it over and all the surrounding allotment owners came and gave their advice pitched in with tools and gossiped the day away With each person Tilly met I could draw on my memories of allotment life and say 'oh shehe is just like' or 'do you remember that day when'Tilly Parker kept her cards close to her chest as to her reasons for turning up in Ivy Lane but as the book progresses we see her opening up a little and seriously having her head turned romantically not by one but two suitors I loved the way her whole demeanour altered when she arrived at the allotment totally relaxing and losing herself in the job at hand her beautiful nature shining through time and time again when she gives time to others putting their needs and feelings to the forefront of everything she doesA highly amusing part of the book saw the allotment owners gearing up for a TV crews arrival They were to film a new television programme set at the allotments It was also time for the annual produce competition Needless to say there was lots of primping and pruning done and not just to the allotments I laughed and smiled so much reading all the antics loving all the characters and their little ways both subtle and in your faceIt was great to be a voyeur watching the story unfold there are those that love the limelight and those that like to blend into the background Secrets jealousies and love share eual space on the page and I oohed and ahhed whilst Tilly found feelings surfacing that she'd kept battened down for so long Her relationship with her new friend Gemma is another big favourite of mine she makes me laugh smile and groan in eual measures Throughout the book there are a lot of sub stories that Cathy throws out reeling the reader in and then leaving them dangling But none so than halfway through the book With Ivy Lane Cathy has developed characters that are highly imaginable and feel to me like real people Tilly Parker the main character in Ivy Lane develops and blossomed as the book progressed I did think it was a stroke of genius and so very apt of Cathy to centre the story around an allotment where things grow with love and care Just like Tilly with all the love and support of her new friends on the allotments Tilly very much kept her cards close to her chest as to how and why she has ended up in Ivy Lane but the third uarter of the book sees Tilly's story un ravel but not before we see her character flounder a littleThe TV company comes back to show a preview of the series they filmed a young offenders project begins on the allotments and let me just say that Tilly's confidence takes a bashing jealousies arise advice is given and new beginnings are forgedConfidences are shared and Tilly reveals her past it's clearly a huge relief to her to finally share her secrets and release the weight that she has been carrying around with her This was a slightly serious part with many differing emotions on display There were still plenty of moments that had me laughing smiling and groaning out loud though imagining the antics going on in and around the allotments Even when displaying her serious side Tilly still manages to make me smile there is a vulnerability and dippy side that just makes me want to hug her and say bless As I drew close to the end of this book I was sad and eager at the same time wanting to find out the final secrets and yet not wanting to because I knew the book would be over Christmas approached with an hilarious baking competition and a party that finally sees romance blossom for Tilly but is it with Aiden or Charlie? You'll have to read it for yourself and find out I can let you into a little secret Cathy has a new four part series out so we don't have to say goodbye to Ivy Lane totally as some of the characters cross over into the new series Appleby FarmI urge you all to go out and buy Ivy Lane once you start reading you'll be hooked line and sinker This was perfect enjoyable read that is uplifting and got better and better the I read Cathy has successfully showcased Ivy Lane and it's characters who all had depth and a story to tell There's lots of humour friendship and intrigue and this story is just like good chocolate satisfying dreamy and delicious but leaves you wanting just a little bit

Ivy LaneA plot at Ivy Lane allotments seems like the perfect solutionBut the friendly Ivy Lane community has other ideas and gradually draw Tilly in to their cosy comforting world of planting This book started really good with an interesting story and a lovely setting but it went down hill pretty uickly for me It was too cliché and predictable The main character Tilly was just too nice sweet and unrealistic I couldn't understand how she could make such a drama of being single for two years come on you lost someone dear to you it takes time for your heart to heal I can't understand how the writer could make such a big deal out of it like being single is terrible and Tilly's only way forward in life was to find a man who could complete her I didn't like the guy she ended up with nor her views on him as her 'savior' She could had been an amazing strong women but in the second half of the story she was becoming weak and man desperate The last two chapters made me throw this book and yell at her I cant remember last time I have been so angry with a book I wish I could get my money back for this one
