Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.


This week, I have chosen the third book by an author that I just LOVE! So far she has released two other books, "Garden Spells" and "the Sugar Queen," and I would so totally give them both . I don't know how they both managed to escape review.
So now we have:
The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Publication Date:March 16, 2010
Publisher:Bantam Discovery
From Randomhouse.com:In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times bestelling author Sarah Addison Allen invites you to a quirky little Southern town with more magic than a full Carolina moon. Here two very different women discover how to find their place in the world…no matter how out of place they feel.

Emily Benedict came to Mullaby, North Carolina, hoping to solve at least some of the riddles surrounding her mother’s life. For instance, why did Dulcie Shelby leave her hometown so suddenly? Why did she vow never to return? But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew—a reclusive, real-life gentle giant—she realizes that mysteries aren’t solved in Mullaby, they’re a way of life.

Here are rooms where the wallpaper changes to suit your mood. Unexplained lights skip across the yard at midnight. And a neighbor bakes hope in the form of cakes.

Everyone in Mullaby adores Julia Winterson’s cakes. She offers them to satisfy the town’s sweet tooth and in the hope of bringing back the love she fears she’s lost forever. In Julia, Emily may have found a link to her mother’s past. But why is everyone trying to discourage Emily’s growing relationship with the handsome and mysterious son of Mullaby’s most prominent family? Emily came to Mullaby to get answers, but all she’s found so far are more questions.

Is there really a ghost dancing in her backyard? Can a cake really bring back a lost love?
In this town of lovable misfits, maybe the right answer is the one that just feels…different.

"A neighbour bakes hope in the form of cakes" - what a lovely idea. Sounds quite magical.

I loved her previous books and I would just love to read this one. It's already on my TBR list. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
