I think Sarah Addison Allen and I would be great friends because I fall for all the guys in her books.

This one, admittedly, had less of a sense of the magical to it. Or perhaps that sense was just more intangible. I missed the feeling that emotions have substance to them and the energies between people or between people and the world have manifestations. I wanted more with Rachel and her coffee and I liked the role that scent played, I just wanted a little more magic overall.

But the characters were really fun and engaging - Allen's characters always are. I liked watching them evolve and have these revelations about themselves and each other and the way they related to one another. I liked the story and the way it unfolded, the sense of mystery and how they changed the character's world.

You just can't go wrong when reading Sarah Addison Allen.

People always say life is too short for regrets. But the truth is, it's too long.
