I like this series because although the witchcraft is there... the skepticism is high, which makes it more believable for me. The thought of spells crafted into bakery goods both makes my mouth water and makes me want to avoid all baked goods at the same time. Nice pacing, good plot, good twists. I will definitely read another book in the series.

This is a lovely, light new mystery series that combines baking, green witchery, and murder in an entertaining read.
