While this is a good read its storyline is too pat its conclusion to easy and its writing too forgettable to earn than 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 seuel uite 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 resort town in the mountains of North Carolina She suffers from a domineering mother who for personal reasons really doesn t like her an unbelievable amount of guilt for tantrums thrown before she became a saint at the ripe old age of nine a town of busybodies who all remember the tantrums perhaps I should have reserved unbelievable for this portion of the plot and isolation resulting from all of the above The point of The Sugar ueen is how Josey resolves all of these issues with the help of her polar opposite who shows up unexpectedly in her closet at the beginning of chapter 1 At the same time various other people affiliated in some way with Josey or her family are going through their own somehow completely related problems The book also contains a smattering of magic which seems to have been included for no other reason than to help the reader suspend disbelief throughout a string of improbable events Once you ve suspended disbelief it is possible to enjoy the book in all of it s feel good splendor At it s heart that s all this book is a feel good novel A sad woman and we know she s sad because at least four different people show up to say so and then disappear from the plot finds happiness and love a true love is saved family problems are resolved and death is established as an okay placeIf you have some extra time like feel good novels and I personally do and desire to learn a little about self perception and a lot about why to not live your entire life in the same small town you should give this book a chance

In this irresistible novel Sarah Addison Allen author of the New York Times bestselling debut Garden Spells tells the tale of a young woman whose family secrets and secret passions are about to change her life foreverJosey 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 settle. The Sugar ueen 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 reuire it to be witty have uirky 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 I knew that Sarah Addison Allen did not meet this criteria Alas I had bought The Sugar ueen from the bargain bin before my disappointing experience with Garden Spells and felt compelled to at least give it a whirl After dutifully trudging through it I can report that I was every bit as underwhelmed as I expected to beJosey Cirrini has a secret a deep dark secret One that could ruin her life She s embarrassed and humiliated by what she hides from the world Want to know what it is Come closer and I ll tell you It s are you sure you can handle this I ll understand if you re not ready for such a shocking revelation Okay well you re still here so it s a closet full of candy and romance novels Hey don t blame me if you weren t ready for that kind of dark and twisty You were forewarned And now Della Lee Baker the lovable town skank has claimed suatter s rights on Josey Cirrini s closet You see Della Lee is on the run from a man that she can t resist and like one does in such a situation she immediately runs to the nearest stranger s closet Della Lee professes her desire to help the shy awkward Josey find a way to free herself from her overprotective mother and take charge of her life Secrets are revealed new loves are forged old loves are rekindled and a kind of awkward magical realism is sprinkled throughout I could go on but if you re rolling your eyes by now then I think you get the gist of what Allen is peddling here Allen s books have been described as light and fluffy I would add saccharine and predictable to the list of adjectives I did not like nor identify with this group of characters and while there s nothing offensive enough to warrant a one star rating the novel certainly isn t exceptional in any way It s a romance plain and simple written for women in their 20 s and 30 s who have forgotten the thrill of a first love and want to vicariously reconnect with that but preferably not in a way that involves a creepy emo vampire And if that s your bag baby then groovy go ahead pick up a copy make yourself a nice cuppa tea grab a blankie and have an estrogen fest Right now I m going to try to restore balance in my reading life by seeing if there s anything on my bookshelf that might involve someone s jugular being ripped outCross posted at This Insignificant Cinder

    375 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 ueen touches on many fairy tale elements while staying grounded in reality Please note this is not a fairy tale retelling

    This is my third book of this author It's chick lit with a mystery thrown in Many love interests some romantic and others scandalous; a little bit of magic; and a few secrets to dolly things up Southern snobishness with old family histories and a good plot A chicken for the soul read for those who need something
