show me 5 Saturday, the Sugar Queen

Show me 5 Saturday is hosted by That's a Novel Idea.
1.Book you read and/or reviewed this week
2 Words that describe the book
3 Settings where it took place or characters you met
4 Things you liked and/or disliked about it
5 Stars or less for your rating?

1. I read The Sugar Queen, Sarah Addison Allen
2. Family, relationships, romance, mystery all tied up in a nice little package, would certainly describe this book.
3. This story takes place in a ski town, Bald Slope, where the American dream was actualized, by an Italian immigrant, who dies, leaving behind his wife, and an only daughter, or at least that's what the only daughter believes. The characters were all very well developed, you liked who you were suppose to like and disliked who you were suppose to dislike.
4. I liked the main character,Josey, I like the characters she interacted with, I liked her unpredictability, I even understood her "secret". I must say this is one of the few books in which I enjoyed the ending, it caught me by surprise and I loved it.
5. I give this a 4.99, I really enjoyed this book. It was easy reading, and an ending I didn't expect. (even though I was suspicious).
