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....

    "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!

    "Love this book! Such sweet narration and story!"

    Super fun book! A little break from the serious long novels and really enjoyed this book. The narrator is great and gave the book a wonderful tone.

    "Great fun series to read"

    The series is an easy read. Characters really draw you in. By mid story I was rooting for Katie to realize she's a witch and use her powers to help others.

    "It was so slow."

    I like the narrator but the book itself was kind of a dud. It was slow from beginning to end.

    "Kind of Ridiculous"

    When I listened to the sample before I bought this it sounded good enough to buy on sale, but in retrospect I wish I hadn't. The narrator has a nice accent, but she races through the reading. She distinguishes between characters well, but it sound like she's reading a list, or trying to get through a speech quickly.
    The author has the characters motivated by unrealistic fears. This, plus the old fashioned electronics and security mindset had me finish the listen because I was doing dishes and didn't mind missing parts when I couldn't hear the computer.
    The witchy parts were fun, the foody parts were lists, the dog was cute but underutilized.

    "Fun and light"

    Well written characters and the story is well developed for what it is. I was looking for something easy to read and entertaining. This story matched my expectations and I will listen to more books in this series.
