Publisher's Summary

"A charming and delectably sweet debut. Mischief, friendship, and a whole lot of heart - Love Sugar Magic has it all." (Zoraida Córdova, award-winning author of the Brooklyn Brujas series)

Leonora Logroño's family owns the most beloved bakery in Rose Hill, Texas, spending their days conjuring delicious cookies and cakes for any occasion. And no occasion is more important than the annual Dia de los Muertos festival.

Leo hopes that this might be the year that she gets to help prepare for the big celebration - but, once again, she is told she's too young. Sneaking out of school and down to the bakery, she discovers that her mother, aunt, and four older sisters have in fact been keeping a big secret: they're brujas - witches of Mexican ancestry - who pour a little bit of sweet magic into everything that they bake.

Leo knows that she has magical ability as well and is more determined than ever to join the family business - even if she can't let her mama and hermanas know about it yet.

And when her best friend, Caroline, has a problem that needs solving, Leo has the perfect opportunity to try out her craft. It's just one little spell, after all...what could possibly go wrong?

Debut author Anna Meriano brings us the first book in a delightful new series filled to the brim with amor, azúcar, y magia.

7 year old approved

Purchased the book for a long road trip with my 7 year old to listen to something new. It was a hasty purchase that ended up being perfect. My daughter didn't really want to listen to a new book but was hooked right away. I think she really identified with the character, especially with the language barriers.

7 year olds review:
I loved the book because of the magic. I've always believed in magic. I like the characters. Leo is my favorite because she breaks the rules sometimes but it always ends up fine.

Magical Sweetness!

The book blurb sums up the first three chapters, so it’s really not a very good description to prepare the reader (listener) for this charming book.

Leo was a fun character who grows with the story. The sibling dynamic is realistic in this MG fantasy tale.

Had I not read the description, this would have been a easy 5 star book. However, my expectations were higher and not quite met. I would recommend this book for its simplistic world building and engaging plot. I would definitely pick up the next book once it’s converted to audio and look forward to sharing these with my granddaughters in the upcoming years.

Beautifully narrated by Kyla Garcia who brings credibility with her accent.

This has been by far the best audiobook I"ve listened to in a while.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Leo. Her curiosity jumped off the page and she had incredible kidlit voice.
