The Sugar Queen (book review)
The Sugar Queen was written by Sarah Addison Allen.
I suppose you've figured out that when I read one book I love... I search and find all of the author's books and read them at once. I'm curious to know if anyone else does this... or it is just a strange obsession I have with book reading? Please tell me I'm not alone.
From the book description on amazon:
Josey Cirrini is sure of three things: winter is her favorite season, she’s a sorry excuse for a Southern belle, and sweets are best eaten in the privacy of her closet. For while Josey has settled into an uneventful life in her mother’s house, her one consolation is the stockpile of sugary treats and paperback romances she escapes to each night…. Until she finds her closet harboring Della Lee Baker, a local waitress who is one part nemesis—and two parts fairy godmother. With Della Lee’s tough love, Josey’s narrow existence quickly expands. She even bonds with Chloe Finley, a young woman who is hounded by books that inexplicably appear when she needs them—and who has a close connection to Josey’s longtime crush. Soon Josey is living in a world where the color red has startling powers, and passion can make eggs fry in their cartons. And that’s just for starters.
Brimming with warmth, wit, and a sprinkling of magic, here is a spellbinding tale of friendship, love—and the enchanting possibilities of every new day.
Sarah Addison Allen definitely has a way of making things magical.
Again... the author's site is something to check out. Well... unless you're hungry. She has a recipe for Chloe's grilled tomato and three cheese sandwich that I would be eating right now if I had the 3 cheeses!
