Curl up, suspend your disbelief, and jump into Josey Cirrini's world...you won't regret it! This is another sweet (oohh...sorry about the pun!) novel from the author of "Garden Spells." It's a story of love and magic and realizing that forgiveness can be given---it's never too late. This is a perfect Escape-My-World novel. I loved it!
This is the second book I have read by Sarah Addison Allen and like the first, Garden Spells, I was put under a spell. ( Pun intended!) Her books are a light, easy read. You can keep track of all the characters and what is going on in the book with out having to make notes. I find it intriguing how she mixes real life with magic and a little fantasy. I am looking forward to reading more by S. Allen to me she is an author to watch!
Excellent story! Leaves you wondering until the very end, so it is a bit of a mystery (don't know if it is billed as one). The only complaint I have is that the title is a bit misleading and doesn't give a good picture of the story.
This was such an enjoyable book. I became so attached to the characters that it felt like losing a good friend when the book came to an end. A fascinating story line that keeps you turning the pages and not wanting to put it down, and characters that you can really connect to. I can't wait to read the next book by this author.
If you like fiction books with just a touch of magic, then you'll love The Sugar Queen!
I read this book straight after Garden Spells (although the two books are not connected) and it's hard to say which I enjoyed more. Once again set in North Carolina and centered around a small town and it's residents, I guessed the major twist in the book very early on but it still didn't spoil my enjoyment of this wonderful book.
I'm very much looking forward to Sarah Addison Allen's next book and hope she writes many more.
