Publisher's Summary

If you'd asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders - the Adept - was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That's what 23 years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you - a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled...except for the cupcake part. That's a universal truth.

Voice compliments the character delightfully

This is the first book in one of my favorite series by one of my favorite authors, and the narration gave me new insight into Jade. I really loved hearing Meghan's vision of Jade instead of just reading it, and I look forward to listening to the other audiobooks. Hopefully Rochelle's intertwining story will be translated to audiobook soon as well!

Sweet treat for mystery fans

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I've never read the author's work before and got the ebook as a free offer and decided to add the audio book just for giggles. The trinkets were a neat little twist. The main character is a bit clueless at times although she admits that which is interesting. Fairly good narration although I got a little stuck at the over pronunciation of some words such as 'didn't,' it made the story "stutter".

love this series!

I love the narrator's voice/voices and how she performs the story. The plot is new and interesting...definitely held my attention and wanted to keep listening until the very end. The play between the characters is fun too..in later books you will be like will they? won't they? please more! can't wait for book 7!

Delicious and magical

What did you love best about Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic?

I loved that it is based in Canada =)
I also loved the cupcakes ... I love cupcakes and the names are so fun and creative

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes and no
I loved how precise she read and her punctuation was bang on except her male characters, they came off sounding slow and dim witted

Cute start to a series

Normal stuff, vamps, weres, witches... Nothing special but fun. Looking forward to the next in the series.

Great story and narrator isn't as bad as others say

I read the reviews for this book and quite a few are saying that the narrator has trouble pronouncing her words. Yet no one mentioned that the book is based in Vancouver and the narrator has a Canadian accent. I didn't have a problem with the narrator, she's a lot better then some I've listened too, I'd give her a B-.

The story itself is fun and entertaining. Love the characters and storyline, only issue for me was that I picked the bad guy from the start. But I also listen/read a lot of mystery and suspense novels and this isn't in that genre (I don't think). Overall well worth a credit and I highly recommend for a fun read.

Fun and well written

I quite enjoyed this book and narration, though I do wish the narrator would enunciated her "t"s and be a bit less sing-song.

Cute in a cupcake

If you could sum up Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic in three words, what would they be?

Magic, sweet, hungry

What did you like best about this story?

Such a cute story. Delicious characters with a magical flare. Jade is such a good girl not aware of who she really is & what abilities may be until a vampire shows up at her store thinking she's a murderer. It became very obvious who the murderer was but still an enjoyable journey. Only negative found the ending wrapped up to quickly & cleanly, also wish the majority of the cupcakes were all described at the start but scattered throughout the story as marking points. But I'm defiantly going to get the next instalment in the series.

What does Caitlin Davies bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Her voice stayed in my head, that even the next day I had her voice narrating my day.

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

Got hooked about a 3rd in & wish I could have finished all at once.

Any additional comments?

Make sure you have snacks when listening cause it will make you hungry :)
