“Sugar Queen” by Sarah Addison Allen

Sugar Queen” by Sarah Addison Allen

ISBN: 978-0-553-80549-9

Sugar Queen” by Sarah Addison Allen is an enchanting story. Josey lives with her controlling mother in a small ski resort in North Carolina. In the beginning of the story it would seem any hope for a bright future to call her own is not likely. But, slowly strange things begin happening and it is with these strange and magical things that Josey begins to move out of her rut.

She has had a crush on Adam the mailman for ages, but until Della shows up one day to live in Josey’s closet things just didn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Josey meets Chloe and they become friends. With Della there to guide things along Josey and Chloe work out the tangled parts of their lives and as with any love story there are several happy endings with this one.

I just can’t give it away, but you won’t be able to put this one down. The ending was one of those O-Henry types where you just didn’t see it coming. You will love it.
