Welcome to the book fort!
Today we'll be reading from Sarah Addison Allen's "The Sugar Queen."
"Josey 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 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 her closet harboring Della Lee Baker, a local waitress who is one part nemesis—and two parts fairy godmother."
"Brimming with warmth, wit, and a sprinkling of magic, here is a spellbinding tale of friendship, love—and the enchanting possibilities of every new day."
I adore Sarah Addison Allen's work. When I read more than one person's review of my "Whimsey" comparing it to work done by Ms. Allen, it was the greatest compliment I could ever have hoped to receive.
Take a listen to this excerpt, and enjoy!
