Publisher's Summary

As a new witch - not to mention owner of Savannah's most enchanting bakery - Katie Lightfoot is still getting used to casting spells, brewing potions, and mastering her magical powers. But that doesn't mean she can't find time to enjoy a picnic with firefighter Declan McCarthy...until she stumbles upon a corpse.

The dead man's tattoo reveals he was a member of a secret society - and it turns out he's missing an object that was very important to the group. When Katie learns the killer was after more than the man's life, she and her Aunt Lucy leave the baked goods on the rack to cool and set off in hot pursuit of a killer.

What the Critics Say

"This paranormal cozy takes on a decidedly thriller overtone midstream. This is just what it needs to break out of the witchcraft tutorial mode that threatens to stall Cates's second title in her promising series. Partner this with Juliet Blackwell's Witchcraft Mystery series." (Library Journal)

    "Narrator for 1st book way better!"

    if you listened to the 1st book and liked it, don't bother with this one. Main character went from upbeat to depressing.

    "Fun story"

    I missed the upbeat energy of Johanna Parker, the reader of Brownies and Broomsticks, but Amy Rubinate did a fine job, with consistent voices for the individual characters. The only issue I really have with her reading quality is the fairly frequent tone that seems either like a "snarky" quality or a "come hither" tone, depending on the situation, and this is not always an appropriate type tone, which got a bit annoying at times. Got past that, and the book is a fun read/listen. Am about to dive into book 3.

    "So much fun!"
    If you could sum up Bewitched, Bothered, and Biscotti in three words, what would they be?

    Spell Binding Fun!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katie. I find baking to be very cathartic and I love her approach to cooking and magic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I wanted to, but life gets in the way!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book, and hope the third book in this series will be posted soon!!

    "Narrator seemed bored"

    Good second book if you like the genre. I listened to this book shortly after the first and was stunned at the night and day difference in narrators. Knowing that this narrator performs following books I doubt I'll continue the series. :(

    "Another narrator Please!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    what happened to Johanna Parker?!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
    Johanna Parker was the first narrator of the series, then the series had to switch to Bailey Cates, who cannot narrate. Ms. Cates has such a monotone voice, when listening to my audiobook while doing home chores: washing dishes, I practically fall into my dish soap. Please bring Ms. Parker back ASAP!




    What did you like best about this story?

    Seeing Ms. Cates can only read w/ once voice, all the characters sound alike, but if I could discern, I think I could choose Lucy...she's so kick-back and positive.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance could have been better if Ms. Cates took acting courses to perfect her reading ability, which takes acting skills. Most good professional readers have been actores.

    "I miss the first reader Johanna Parker."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this book in print form, not audio. I find this author fun and I enjoy my time spent in her work. I don't enjoy Ms Rubinates performance, & I tried coming back in different moods & times of day. She didn't bring the dialects from Haiti & Ohio plus the different southern dialects that are found throughout the southeast to justice. Actually, she murdered the Haitian so badly & the unenthusiastic way she has of speaking drives me nuts right now. But I've like her in other stuff. Really.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mimsey, Declan, & Katy are my favorites.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Amy Rubinate’s performances?

    Maybe.


    Was Bewitched, Bothered, and Biscotti worth the listening time?

    Well I got the kindle version so I could finish it. Take that for what it means to you.

    "Fun spooky read"

    Darker than the first book. Fun read if you like the witches and wizards genre

    Reader was a little flat I thought. A little more animation or voice inflection would have made things a little more exciting.

    "The Honeybee needs to be someplace near me"

    I love the sweetness of this book. There is not real suspense to these murder mysteries but I don't mind. The pace of the story makes me feel like I'm apart of the coven and they are telling me a story about something that happened before i got there.
    The narrator is excellent her voice makes me wanna sit back and listen. Amy Rubinate is great for this role never change her for anyone else.

    "Much better narrator"

    First narrator was exhausting- too fast. This was much better. Fun stories. Rooting for Declan!

    "Huge improvement from 1st in series!"

    I was hoping the series would improve and it did! The author did a fine job with an engaging story and continuing character development that was very satisfying. There's still great potential with the multiple arcs of the story. I look forward to more. Good narration, too!
