I was so entertained by Allen’s first book that I went back to the library to read her next book.  The Sugar Queen was another chick lit fantasy type of book.  It was like eating candy in bed…indulgent and fun. 
This story was about a young woman who hid out in her bedroom which was in her childhood home.  Josey is  from a rich family but never felt like she could measure up or step out on her own. She takes care of her egotistical mother and does her best to stay keep out-of-the-way as well as please her.  She has a secret closet in her bedroom and sneaks up candy, junk food, and romance novels to be welled stocked  for the hours she spends hidden away in the closet indulging in reading and eating. One day a woman appears in her closet and sends her on an errand to get her a sandwich.  Josey has been sent on a journey to discover herself.  The woman in the closet is very strange….but since I had read Allen’s first book…I knew there was an element of fantasy in this story.  I wasn’t disappointed and was well entertained.
