2014 book 257

Sarah Addison Allen's First Frost
The sequel to Garden Spells is set ten years after its predecessor, when things are mooooore or less the same, though Claire is now running a candy company (very successful thanks to a piece in Southern Living!), Bay is in high school and has seen a boy she KNOWS she belongs with, and a mysterious older man has come to town. Things progress as you'd expect in a novel by Allen, but the characters are all great and lovable, a few surprises happen, and it's all completely satisfying (I personally always enjoy seeing happy marriages in fiction). A really solid follow-up that I highly recommend to fans of Garden Spells.  A-.

A review copy was provided by the publisher. This book will be released in January.
