Publisher's Summary

When Lee Barrett joins a former student's bridal party as maid of honor, she expects cake tastings and dress fittings. But wedding planning becomes more peculiar than Lee's scrying talents could ever predict. There's a magical baker, a best man with a checkered past, and a talking crow named Poe as the ring bearer. There's also a kindly old man dead under his apple tree - one of a series of unexplained deaths hanging over the Wiccan community....

With witches dropping dead before they even come out of the proverbial broom closet, Lee's best friend, River, fears she might have somehow unleashed a terrible curse on the city. Now, aided by Poe and her clairvoyant cat, Lee sets out to investigate. Are lives being claimed by vengeful supernatural forces - or by something more shocking? She soon discovers, casting light on the wicked truth can be one killer commitment....

Too many desserts: too little story!

I liked the first books in this series, but the latest book is filled with cakes, cupcakes, cookies, lasagna, more cake, and very little plot. Combine this with a slow, bland narrator, and you have a book that will bring out the stress-eater in anyone! 1 star plus 3-5 lbs! Beware!

Entertaining...

I liked this book. I thought it had a little more humor than past books in the series. I sometimes wish the narrator would lighten up a little bit on the main characters voice, sometimes she comes off as a little too prim & proper like her Aunt. But over all, I enjoyed it.

No more

This is a mediocre cozy mystery series. Lee Barret lives a charmed life inconvenienced by an occasional murder. The plot is slow and the characters are not realistic. The first couple of books were ok but I haven't enjoyed the last couple of books.
