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.

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.

Nice continuation of the series



I liked it. I like this series. I will admit I skipped 4 and 5 because I just didn't want to deal with the love triangle that seemed to be setting up.

I picked up 6 at a twofer sale figuring if it was still going on I wouldn't be out much.
It did appear in the beginning of the book that the triangle had been dealt with at some point in the past, but it tried to rear its ugly head. I am hoping it won't be in future editions.

You don't need to have read any of the previous books to get the story. It is always helpful to have the back stories, of course, but you are given all the info you need in this.

A cozy mystery with some supernatural elements, which seems to be the "new" thing in cozy mysteries these days.

The story was fleshed out well. Lots of red herrings as is the norm in this type of book.

Worth your time and worth the credit.

Amy Rubinate did her usual good job on the narration.

Very interesting and imaginative story

I have enjoyed this series and will continue to do so. Loved the story line and cannot wait for the next one. The characters are wonderful plus the narrator does a great job with the voices.i feel as though I was in the honeybee with them plus I loved the new character that was introduced. Maybe she will be a regular now.i also hope Katie and her finance will stay in the carriage house.
