"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Girl Who Chased the Moon

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
The Girl Who Chased The Moon by Sarah Addison Allen author of
Garden Spells.
This info was taken directly from the Sarah Addison Allen web page.
The Girl Who Chased The Moon

Look for Chapter One excerpt and book extras in early 2010!

Emily Benedict came to Mullaby, North Carolina, hoping to solve at least some of the riddles surrounding her mother’s life. But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew, 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, Julia Winterson, bakes hope in the form of cakes, offering them to satisfy the town’s sweet tooth—but also in the hope of rekindling a love she fears might be lost forever. 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.

"A dusting of magic, the aroma of sugary cakes swirling through the breeze, and a girl who unwittingly brings change to a town of misfits makes for a sweet summer story filled with hope and forgiveness. The Girl Who Chased the Moon flirts with the supernatural while the light tinkling of a charm bracelet sounds in the night."

- Beth Hoffman, author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

This sounds a nice read. I read Garden Spells by this author but it was too similar to 'Practical Magic' by Alice Hoffman for me. This book sounds nice though so I may give her books another go...Thank you for the info

How is Nicholas Sparks' book? I like the movies from the books. I just wish the books and movies weren't always so sad!
