"Sarah Addison Allen, beloved author of Garden Spells, returns with a luminous story of the trouble with hanging on too long, and the magic that happens when you finally let go. Autumn has finally arrived in the small town of Bascom, North Carolina, heralded by a strange old man appearing with a beat-up suitcase. He has stories to tell, stories that could change the lives of the Waverley women forever. But the Waverleys have enough trouble on their hands. Quiet Claire Waverley has started a successful new venture, Waverley's Candies, but it's nothing like she thought it would be, and it's slowly taking over her life. Claire's wild sister Sydney, still trying to leave her past behind, is about to combust with her desire for another new beginning. And Sydney's fifteen-year-old daughter Bay has given her heart away to the wrong boy and can't get it back. From the author of the New York Times bestselling sensation Garden Spells, First Frost is magical and atmospheric, taking readers back into the lives of the gifted Waverley women--back to their strange garden and temperamental apple tree, back to their house with a personality of its own, back to the men who love them fiercely--proving that a happily-ever-after is never the real ending to a story. It's where the real story begins. "-- "Featuring characters from her beloved novel, Garden Spells, Sarah Addison Allen's new novel picks up ten years after that eventful summer when Claire Waverly's wild half-sister Sydney returned to Bascom and Claire met her now-husband Tyler. Things have settled down and Claire finds she has slipped back into a place of tightly sequestered sameness. It's comfortable. She likes it. But when her father Russell shows up he brings with him information that Claire doesn't want to hear and that will challenge everything she thought she knew about herself. Filled with Sarah Addison Allen's characteristic magic and warmth, this novel will reveal how the people who come into your life may not be the ones you expect, but they're there for a reason. And they don't change your one true voice, they make it louder"--… (lisätietoja)

This is the second of Allen's stories about The Waverley women of North Carolina. I read the first Garden Spells last year and shelved this one for a time when I needed a "feel good read"-it did not disappoint.

All the main characters are back, a little older and with new Waverley girls added in. The women of this family seem to be born with a "touch of magic" which either enhances someone life or puts them on the right path. Again, there was a bit of romance, a bit a drama and a lot of fun.

Back in October there was a blurb that she was working on a new book-I look forward to it adding it to my "feel good" list ( )

Maybe I just expected more of this book because I generally enjoy the whimsy of this author's writing style. ( )

Many thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for allowing me to read this ARC.

I love the way Sarah Addison Allen writes. There's magic and happiness and whimsy and fun and wonder in the air and everything feels better after her books. This was a great book to end a rather craptastic week at work. My biggest complaints were that I wanted more. There were a lot of things going on and yet nothing was really going on at the same time. I liked the story but felt as if it was more of an in between rather than a full book. I have a feeling there are more coming but I could be wrong. In any case, it's a perfectly good read, just not one of my favorites of hers.

PS I met her at a book signing and she just may be the cutest, nicest person ever. ( )

A return to Bascom, North Carolina, and the magical Waverley family. Nine years after the first book, Claire has begun a wildly successful candy-making business, Sydney is well-known for her hairstyles but craves a son, and Bay has entered high school and knows, in her special way, that she and Hunter John's son belong together. As the first frost and the blooming of the Waverley apple tree approach, the family's gifts begin to run a little wild, and a mysterious and almost ethereal stranger arrives in Bascom.

This was a nice and seasonal fall read. It was fun to return to the world of the Waverleys. It didn't blow me away, but I enjoyed the very mild level of tension and the look at each of these characters. ( )

2.5 in fairness. Another instance of not reading the first book first, even though I didn't feel out of the loop and this could stand alone....A charming story of the Waverly family in Bascom, NC -- the kind of town people either try to stay in or get out of. The Waverlys have been there for generations -- in a big old house with a bewitched apple tree. This book is an adult version of Savvy and that's the part of the book that's likeable -- that each family member (or at least female) has some special talent -- not quite a magical power, but a tweak that allows them to do things others cannot. For Claire, her cooking lets her tap into others emotions, for her sister Sydney, it is the ability to make other women look beautiful, for her daughter Bay, it is the ability to see how things (and people) fit together. Entertaining. The story line itself isn't very strong...the action in the book is centered on Bay trying to help the popular boy in school see that they belong together, Claire and Sydney trying to learn and understand more about their dead mother Loralei, and the main antagonist is a drifter who comes to town to blackmail Claire after reading about her famous candies and cooking. Pleasant enough to read, but no great revelations or impact. ( )
