Curl up, suspend your disbelief, and jump into Josey Cirrini's 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!

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.

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.

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.

I really enjoyed the book. After the first couple chapters I was caught up in the surprise of how all the characters were connected. I had a hard time putting the down. If looking for an enjoyable quick read, this is the book.

This book was an adorable follow-up to Garden Spells! SAA has fast become one of my favorite authors. A word of caution, do not read any of her works if you are hungry. Sugar Queen made me want grilled cheese sandwiches for days.

I loved this book!!! It was such a joy to read, I couldn't put it down even though I wanted to savor it longer. The book takes place in a small Southern town in the snowy town of Bald Slope. Josey is a modern day Rapunzel, trapped in her house taking care of her ungrateful mother her whole life. The sudden appearance of a stranger changes it all. This book is romantic and magical, but in ways that aren't your usual run-of-the-mill spells and I loved it for that. Loved the author's writing style, cannot wait to pick up her other book!
