Publisher's Summary

Katie Lightfoot's tired of loafing around as the assistant manager of an Ohio bakery. So when her aunt Lucy and uncle Ben open a bakery in Savannah's quaint downtown district and ask Katie to join them, she enthusiastically agrees.

While working at the Honeybee Bakery - named after Lucy's cat - Katie notices that her aunt is adding mysterious herbs to her recipes. Turns out these herbal enhancements aren't just tasty - Aunt Lucy is a witch and her recipes are actually spells!

When a curmudgeonly customer is murdered outside the Honeybee Bakery, Uncle Ben becomes the prime suspect. With the help of handsome journalist Steve Dawes, charming firefighter Declan McCarthy, and a few spells, Katie and Aunt Lucy stir up some toil and trouble to clear Ben's name and find the real killer....

Lots of Potential

This story has lots of potential. I think it would have been better with a different narrator, and I say that as a fan of Johanna Parker's narration of the Sookie Stackhouse series. In this book, however, the narration was rushed, which made it difficult to get a sense of the story. The story had a lot of interesting elements, seemed well-researched, and pretty well-written. I do think it's worth a credit if you can get past the rapid pace of the narration.

Witch books

Not worth it....really was an empty story...I have read other witch stories but this one
was so sily.

Disappointed

I had high hopes for a good clean mystery. The other reviews failed to comment that the narrator reads like an auctioneer. What's the hurry?! I also didn't realize that a light read equaled cliche characters and narrative. Really disappointed to have waisted a credit on this book. I suppose I need to be less trusting of good ratings. Don't waste your time or money.

Comfortable book to read.

I enjoyed this book because it was a change from what I had been reading, and it had humor besides. The reader was a little fast, I would have liked her to slow u a bit, but she was clear and expressive. I want to read book 2.

Loved the Storyline!

Bit only a great easy story to follow with plenty of intrigue, but a good narrator! And, that my friends, can make or break a good story!
