Romance ripens at Ivy Lane . . .
Tilly Parker is feeling happier than she has done since her life completely changed nearly two years ago. As she flourishes under the summer sun, she throws herself into life at Ivy Lane, complete with strawberry planting, chinwags with Gemma and cups of tea with Alf.
And excitement reaches fever pitch when a TV crew descends to capture life inside a modern-day allotment, bringing out the best (new wellies and lipstick) and the worst (parsnip rivalry) in them all.
As Tilly’s broken heart slowly mends, she attracts the attention of not one but two suitors – but is Tilly ready for romance and what secrets is she still keeping from her friends at Ivy Lane?
Ivy Lane is a serialized novel told in four parts – taking you through a year in the life of Tilly Parker – with Summer the second part.
Each part of Ivy Lane is approx. 10 chapters.
I loved this book it just as good as the last one you can just read as a stand a lone book but i read as a set as they are fab i can not wait for the autumn part 3 i not sure when it out but i check as soon as i know i will post on blog or fb page for you 
This time in the ivy lane allotment we have the TV crew doing a piece on the allotment and the community spirt there what it like what people are growing ect the character are so looking forward to them starting but Tilly not we still sure of her past and who james is i want to know now but i sure we will find out in last book or may before i not sure 
She not happy about being in the show she want to just blend in the back ground but she by no choice of her own she is a big part of the show i not sure why she does not want to be in i sure we will find out soon 
I loved how we hear all about the allotments show i remember doing these as a kid i did mini garden in a tray box i made a green house with match stick did ponds paths ect i loved it my grandad use to do with me i won a few time I like that we heard what each character had grow for the show and what they were putting in 
Gemma still a lovely fun girl i like to hear about her doing some of her beauty treatments in the shed it made me laugh she get Tilly to have a few treatments Tilly not one for looking after her self i like how they help and support each other gemma got some good new to tell us it this book which was nice to hear about 
Brenda and Christine i love they make me laugh they are such warm character a mum you hate for doing to much if you know what i mean but they great too 
Mia as 14 year old that loves her phone and the net she still grounded she all way around the allotment helping out we find out why it made me laugh very clever 
Charlie the fireman i loved him in the last book and in this one he such a nice guy but we find out more about him and Tilly now not sure of his past may be they will or will not be more than friends
