Those of you who know me know that I love to read. I found some great "chic-lit" (not sure if I like that name but Oh well!) for you! A friend gave me the first book (then her friend gave me the second!) and I am now officially hooked! If you like books where the geeky girl underdog always gets the guy, where good southern food and sweets play an important part of the story and a touch of magic saves the day...then you'll love Sarah Anderson Allen's books. Easy, light reads that take you to fictional small towns in North Carolina. The subtle magic that teases you through her stories are what makes them so special, like books suddenly appearing on your kitchen table because you need to focus on their topic, like how-to-get-the-guy or forgiveness, or bakers who can put a feeling in the food your serving at a party because you want your guests to feel happy, sympathy or love. How about an apple tree that protects the people who live in the house that sits on its yard or wallpaper that changes according to your mood. What are you reading this Wednesday?
