4.0 out of 5 stars "I think Heaven is like a first kiss...", 25 Jan. 2010
This review is from: The Sugar Queen (Paperback)
After enjoying Sarah Allen's debut 'Garden Spells' a couple of months ago, I was hoping that this book would be written in a similar vein- with just the right balance of romance, sweetness and magic. It was actually better. I completely adored this novel and devoured it in about two hours- I just couldn't put it down.

Josey Cirrini isn't the typical Southern belle. For one thing, she's completely under her overpowering mother's thumb. Friendless Josey also hides stockpiles of candy and romance paperbacks in her closet, where a local waitress with a troubled life has decided to seek shelter, simultaneously blackmailing her into the bargain. Just when you thought Josey's life couldn't get any more complicated, her mailman, who she's been secretly in love with for three years, happens to find out the feelings she's been harbouring for him...

This is a wonderful read with so many stories entwined in one. The characters are all depicted so well and you feel like you end up knowing them- in particular Chloe, Josey's new friend, who has a particular affinity with books (they magically appear out of thin air trying to tell her things- love it!) and Adam, Josey's love interest. Josey is a heroine you'll end up cheering for and wanting to come out on top whilst admiring her loyalty and determination. If you're a fan of Cecilia Ahern or Christina Jones then you'll undoubtedly love this book.
