In her latest enchanting novel, New York Times best-selling 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 - such as, why did Dulcie Shelby leave her hometown so suddenly? And 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 - which is a good thing, because Julia can't seem to stop baking them. She offers them to satisfy the town's sweet tooth but also in the hope of rekindling the love she fears might be lost forever. Flour, eggs, milk, and sugar...Baking is the only language the proud but vulnerable Julia has to communicate what is truly in her heart. But is it enough to call back to her those she's hurt in the past?

Can a hummingbird cake really bring back a lost love? Is there really a ghost dancing in Emily's backyard? The answers are never what you expect. But in this town of lovable misfits, the unexpected fits right in.

    " Super easy read, but in a good way. This was the perfect vacation book about North Carolina for a trip to the Outer Banks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Shoo | 12/6/2013

    " The characters kept this from being a five-star book. They were too one dimensional. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caralene | 11/22/2013

    " Magical and enchanting! "

    " Of all things good and pure and heavenly... the goodness of adolescence, the purity of love and the heavenliness of freshly-baked cakes. I could live in Ms Allen's stories forever. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adriane David | 7/1/2013

    " A fun, quick read. I wish there was a series of this book, would have been nice to have a longer story line. Its a very uncomplicated book with simple characters and situations. The ending I feel could have been a little more clear. It seemed to have ended too fast, but that's just my opinion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Leick | 4/14/2013

    " I also thought it was a good summer read and a very good teen read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katharine | 3/20/2013

    " Really a 2.5. Cute story, and I grabbed it because they had it at the library. I have heard better things about some of her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jude | 7/20/2012

    " I've read Allen's Garden Spells and The Sugar Queen, both lovely, magical dreams to sink into. The Girl Who Chased the Moon is my favorite so far, and, at the very end, when I finally understood the inspiration for the name of the bakery (I'm slow), it really got me. A beautiful moment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki Cook | 11/17/2011

    " This is the first time I have read this author and I fell in love with her writing. The characters are unique but very life like. The little whispers of magic throughout the book are enchanting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenda | 10/3/2011

    " Allen's books are predictable, but charming. A light read, to be sure. "

    " I love the touch of magic in Addison's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 5/24/2011

    " I Loved this book! I seem to be drawn to books set in the south these days. Part magic, part love story and part mystery, I devoured this book on a day and a half. If you are looking for stark realism this is not the book for you, but an as enchanting read it certainly fills the bill! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristen | 5/18/2011

    " 3.5 - Sarah Addison Allen has an enchanting tone to her writing. Adore her. This book wasn't quite as good as Garden Spells but still a lovely read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 5/18/2011

    " Love this book. A quick and fun read. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was in the vein of "Big Fish". It was light, airy, and the story was interesting.
    I wish it was longer- I can't wait to read Addison-Allen's other books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christy | 5/17/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Courtney | 5/15/2011

    " Absolutely lovely. I have now read two of the author's books and I just love them both. They have the perfect blend of realism and magic and they're just so whimsical that I'm left smiling. I want more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 5/14/2011

    " Very enjoyable light read. Easy to read very quickly. Has a lot of magic and is a very charming, but light story with an 8 foot tall grandfather, a boyfriend with a strange secret, and magical things happening at home and in town. I enjoyed the book, but did not find it particularly memorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 5/13/2011

    " i really enjoyed this book. A fast read and a nice change from vampire books. :) "
