NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “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 make for a sweet summer story filled with hope and forgiveness.”—Beth Hoffman, author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt
Emily Benedict has come 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, not only wishing to satisfy the town’s sweet tooth but also dreaming of rekindling the 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.
BONUS: This edition contains a The Girl Who Chased the Moon discussion guide and an excerpt from Sarah Addison Allen's The Peach Keeper.

An enjoyable read
A very enjoyable light reading. Kind of book that is great for reading on vacation. But there were no depth to the characters. I wanted more and the ending was too easy, sweet and predictable.
An adult fairytale
I LOVED this charming story! It combines magic, sparkle and sweetness, an irresistible recipe!
She hasn't disappointed YET!!!
I was introduced to Sarah Addison Allen one day by a librarian and was very hesitant about reading it based on her explanation of the book. I'm so glad I did! She takes you to a world that plays with the line of reality and fantasy just enough to give you a fairytale giddy feeling but still believe it's real!! I look forward to every book she releases!!!!
