Frost Falls at the Potting Shed by Jenny Kane #Review


Here is the first in a new series by Jenny Kane, Frost Falls at the Potting Shed. It was published by Aria on 27th October. 


It has always been Maddie Willand's dream to take over her father's plant nursery. But after his sudden death, she is devastated to discover that she might lose The Potting Shed forever.

Maddie's bossy older sister, Sabi, is joint owner of the nursery, and she's convinced that the best thing for both of them would be to sell up. Determined to keep the business going, Maddie can't afford any distractions, but staying focused might be harderthan she thinks when –after a major garden centre chain puts in an offer –her search for legal advice throws her into the path of attractive lawyer Ed...



'A perfect feel-good story about family dynamics and sisterly love,with characters you truly care about. Loved it. Highly recommended.'–Jennifer Bohnet 

'I really loved this book. It was warm, funny and smart and made me want to get out into the garden. If you love reading and gardening then this is a perfect combination. A gorgeous story with a beautiful setting.'–Kate Forster

 My Thoughts

Having enjoyed the Mill Grange series, I was anticipating this new series.  The Potting Shed proved to be a warm, welcoming place, with a strong, family vibe. Of course, some members of the family are not in agreement and an offer from an outside concern causes a rift to emerge between the two sisters, Maddie and Sabi. They have different priorities. Maddie is easy to like. She is hardworking and wears her heart on her sleeve. Sabi, on the other hand, is less sympathetic and appears entitled and a little snobbish. As the story develops, you begin to see a different side to Sabi and to understand why she is behaving as she does.

    There is plenty of potential for future stories set in the Potting Shed.  You are introduced to a range of characters who all come over as individuals. Full of the outdoors, Maddie relishes the outdoors, no matter the weather and the stary walks sound amazing. With a love of nature, the Potting Shed seems to bring the best out in people and you sense a community who you may meet in future books, willing Maddie to succeed. This is a warm and entertaining story, set in Winter, with a nod to the festive season.

In short: Take a risk and follow your dreams
