    The Sugar Queen is a book clearly written for a particular type of woman And that woman is not me I m not immune to the charms of chick lit, but I do require it to be witty, have quirky characters, present a plausible and realistic relationship notice I did not say a romance that is not the axis upon which the main character s world turns, and a strong female lead After reading Garden Spells by the same author last year

    3.75 starsI loved Garden Spells , so I decided to give another of Sarah Addison Allen s books a go There s the same lush storytelling with hints of magic that are just subtle enough to be believable The Sugar Queen touches on many fairy tale elements while staying grounded in reality Please note this is not a fairy tale retelling, it just has some faint yet recognizable allusions view spoiler What didn t work for me was the

    While this is a good read, its storyline is too pat, its conclusion to easy, and its writing too forgettable to earnthan three stars Would I read it again Probably not Would I want to reread parts of it years from now Possibly Would I read a sequel Quite probably You can draw your own conclusions from that Our heroine struggles with self perception and a lack of self esteem Josey is supposed to be a Southern belleliving in a ski

    The Sugar QueenBy way of confession I have been Vanquished by a romance book BUT it was a magical one, with an interesting story line That counts, right The book sought me out, not the other way around This was in a pile of books by my mother s bed, that after her passing I threw in a box for stronger times It s been four years and I m just now getting the resolve to sort that container out.More than anything, I loved the books that communicate
