Review: First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen

First Frost (Waverley Family, #2)
Book cover: First Frost

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a sequel to Sarah Addison Allen‘s previous book, Garden Spells.

It’s quite a lovely read. Some of the unresolved plot points from Garden Spells carry over into this one, namely the parental issues of the main characters, Claire and Sydney. The main narrator is Sydney’s daughter, Bay (which is a completely ridiculous name, in my opinion). Bay has some lovely teenage problems, namely a boy who she is not supposed to like, but does.

There are just lovely tensions that build and build and spill over and then it all gets resolved with a nice family dinner, and the tree blossoming at the first frost.

It’s lovely and charming.
