Publisher's Summary

When the bookshop next to the Honeybee Bakery hosts a signing for a Savannah radio celebrity's new self-help book, magical baker Katie Lightfoot is happy to provide some delectable desserts. The whole spellbook club is going to the event, curious about the book (and maybe to sample some goodies), but the final chapter comes too soon for the author when she is found dead at the event. The prime suspect is Angie Kissel, a former witch whose familiar was once Katie's own terrier, Mungo. Katie is at first hesitant to help, afraid of losing the little dog who has become so important to her. But after a little nudge from Mungo himself, Katie decides to try to conjure up the real killer - before Angie gets served.

Another light and enjoyable Magical Bakery Mystery

Katie continues to grow into her own in this cozy witch mystery series. I love that we got to hear more about familiars and Mungo's origins, and that Katie's relationships continue to develop and grow, although not without a few bumps along the way. The mystery is well-paced and the characters are likeable, with distinct personalities. I enjoyed the narration, as well.

Who Done It.

This is the first book i have listen to by this author. I got the book as part of the 2 for 1 sale and i am glad i did. Even though it is a book 6, i had problem following the story line. The book was very well written and Amy Rubinate did a great job with narrating. I look forward in going back and getting the first 5 books.

Great Mystery Novel

Excellent plot with more twists and turns than Murder She Wrote or Columbo. Really keeps you guessing. Love a book that the characters interact so well, and during the course of the adventure the characters all learn and grow too. Riveting and thoroughly enjoyable; plus the narrator has such an excellent range in voices that it just makes the whole book work.

My Favorite

I've read this series in order and this is my favorite. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to and laughing at the connection between Katie and Mongo.

This is an enjoyable and light read.

Good writing, narration, plot & perfect mix

On book 6 & reading all of course, talented writer with research/knowledge of Savannah/low country history as well as Wiccan and voodoo (I am a Lowcountry generations born & bred) plots are good with enough suspense and clear understanding of why she’s in the middle of many, not just the “all of a sudden the main character finds herself and her small town overrun with murders when there’s no history or reason” - nice tie in for Katie’s involvement.
I am only...hmm, “upset” isn’t really the word but find myself confused about the 2 men in her life - not that I want anything bad to happen to her and D but OMG the “destiny” repeated and sparks between her and S - sigh how I wish that was eventually going to come to light, without the heartache of D losing - wow, I’m better at words than that but trying not spoil much and get my point across at the same time. I mean, spells bells, I was even jealous FOR Katie, when Samantha was in the picture with S ! And was all about sending her off to another plane....
Well, guess we can’t have it all, I do highly recommend this series, especially for escaping our own almost unrecognizable world today - good for all ages and looking forward to more!!
Oh, FYI to your proof readers/editors:
1. Writer in Honeybee was early on called Martin as real name not pen name, now called Arthur as real name (“movie error”)
B. Early book states Lucy and Ben were married for 30 years only later to state 10+ “met later in life”
3. A few other little errors but not like the ones above - sorry it’s my OCD and stupid memory lock, but thought you should know

Keeps getting better

Bailey Cates’ Magical Bakery series just keeps getting better with every installment, not stale as others I’ve read/listened to seem to. Amy Rubinate, as always, gives a wonderful performance as she brings it all to life.
