Book Review

Title:      The Sugar Queen
Author:  Sarah Addison Allen
Pages:   276
Genre:    Fiction

Twenty-seven-year-old Josey Cirrini is sure of three things: winter in her North Carolina hometown is her favorite season, she s a sorry excuse for a Southern belle, and sweets are best eaten in the privacy of her hidden 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 it harboring none other than local waitress Della Lee Baker, a tough-talking, tenderhearted woman who is one part nemesis and two parts fairy godmother...
Fleeing a life of bad luck and big mistakes, Della Lee has decided Josey s clandestine closet is the safest place to crash. In return she's going to change Josey's life because,..

My Review:
I LOVED this book. Josey is a wonderful character who does her duty well, and hides all hints of a personality in an effort to pay her mother back. Della Lee is hell bent of making Josey have a life and aides in pushing Josey out the tiny little shell of a life she has created. Much like Rapunzel, Josey has locked herself in a tower, and hidden all of her potential, Della Lee is the little 'devilish' thought that has tempted her out.

I read Garden Spells and loved the cast of characters, and I am no less in love with this town and it's amazingly 'witchy' cast, including a very sexy Succubus.Sarah Addison Allen has a definite talent for making her characters, and their lives come alive, and I knew who Della was from the very first, but it was great to read it in the end anyway.

Josey's changes and her new life a so well worth reading about. I enjoyed thos love story as well as the secondary love story within.

I got this book in the Bargain bin at WaldenBooks for $3.99, it was well worth the original $22.00.
