Hope thrives at Ivy Lane . . .

As winter descends on Ivy Lane, the frost sparkles and icy winds flurry - but Tilly is still reeling from the events of the Hallowe'en party. Only the die-hard plot holders brave the cold weather, and Tilly fears the loneliness that gripped her a year ago will return.

Resolute to stay cheerful, she throws herself into organizing both the ina

I put off reading the final Ivy Lane instalment because I have loved every single thing about this series and did not want it to end. Sad, I know. Thankfully, the wonderful Cathy Bramley has written another serialised novel, Appleby Farm, of which the first part is out this week so it was just the push I needed to finally read Ivy Lane: Winter. Within less than a minute of reading it, I’d managed to ease my way right back into the lovely

After waiting with baited breath for the last two months it was fantastic to catch up with Tilly and the gang again. If you have read part three (autumn), you will know that it ended with a massive cliffhanger. I was dying to know what happened and if all was ok and couldn't get started soon enough. As soon as it had finished downloading to my Kindle I was stuck straight in,

This fourth and final installment does not disappoint! It is so beautifully written, I defy you not to fall in love with Iv

A delightful series of books and a completely new author for me. We follow the year at Ivy Lane and this is the conclusion to our journey with the familiar characters. It was really wonderful to catch up with Tilly and the other characters again.

What is going to happen in this one- you'll just have to read and see. I can't wait to catch up with her new series now.

Many thanks to the publisher and Net Galley for a copy of this book.

Light and fun and a very short read. This ends the Ivy Lane series. I read one per season. It was delightful.

This is the final episode of the Ivy Lane series. Autumn has moved into Winter and Tilly has a decision to make regarding her job. Does she stay as a job share or does she take on the role as full time teacher, but this will restrict her activities on the allotment.

Following a fire and then the roof of the allotment pavillion blowing off, there is little left in the funds to hold the annual Christmas party so Tilly throws herself into organising a cake sale to raise funds. Meanwhile, Gemma her b

Who has read "Ivy Lane: Autumn" knows that it has ended with a big cliffhanger, as always actually, because every part ended with an open question. This time it was about Gemma's baby and I couldn't wait for "Ivy Lane: Winter" to know what happened! Cathy is absolutely the best teaser in the world, period.

I am totally torn apart right now because on one hand I am so happy to read the whole series, to know what's happened, and on the other hand I'm really sad that the adventure with this friendly

Oh how I waited for 6th November to meet my friends at Ivy Lane allotments and to find out what had happened and how Cathy Bramley had helped make my heart happy by sorting things out the way my head had wanted it to all work. Cathy as in previous books left us wanting more and boy did she deliver it.
We start with Tilly dwelling how the oh so hopeful Halloween date should have gone so well but as things occurred didn't go to plan. Tilly has now found strength from her allotment friends and puts

So its over, and this final instalment does not disappoint.
In this final season at Ivy Lane, the allotment itself is very quiet, but all things are leading up to Christmas and the annual party. And as Tilly faces the prospect of Christmas alone, she throws herself into the social life of Ivy Lane to distract her from the festive period. But as the year closes off, her prospects are very different, and the dilemma that has faced her for most of the year resolves itself and she begins the New Year

I actually read this when it first came out and have never got round to writing my review, I felt it was appropriate to post it today as the full book is out in paperback.

After finishing Ivy Lane Autumn, I couldn't wait to read this as Cathy is such a tease and left it with a big cliff-hanger, I won’t say what and spoil it for anyone who is intending on reading the full book.

When I picked this up and stepped back into the world of Ivy Lane it really felt like meeting old friends again. Again Cat

And we get to the her conclusion in "Winter," and I have to admit I shed a few tears here. When, at the Christmas party, Tilly gets an award for all her contributions to the allotment, I just saw tears in my eyes - nice to see her in the best palce after everything she has gone through) and I feel like I went through all of it with her) And we also get the epilogue on the romantic status - and I admit I was a little bit shocked to find who she ends up with

Final part of the ivy lane books and was wonderful to get back to hearing how Tilly is getting on after finishing the last book on a cliff hanger. It's coming up to Christmas and Tilly is still single and isn't looking forward to being alone at christmas. She throws herself into organising a cake competition with the ivy lane allotments and community and it it is a great success and they can then throw the usual Christmas party and Tilly's best friend goes in to labour and will Tilly be alone or ...more

So sad that I have now come to the end of the year at Ivy Lane allotments!

The changes Tilly has gone through from Spring to Winter have been lovely to share, and the whole focus of life at the allotment has been magical.

Cathy Bramley captures the characters well and makes you want to get a plot so you can get to know them even more!
