and friends that are known as The Spellbook Club including Katie, Aunt Lucy, Cookie,Mimsey, Jaida, and Bianca Another great part of Honeybee Bakery for me is the library when the witches have collected books for their customers Taylor made for them When a meeting of the Spellbook Club is interrupted by a young girl named Dawn who hysterically makes her way into the bakery and suddenly collapses among the witches coven.Before Dawn collaspes she wants to relay a message to a witch she has come to see, that witch is Katie about a missing gris gris, a voodoo talisman of magical power She wants Katie to help find the gris gris When there is a connection between Dawn and murdered homicide detective, Frank Frank s death is suspicious because he died while a voodoo ritual was preformed Katie then asked her friend and fellow witch Cookie for help who has experience in the voodoo world and together they look for a voodoo queen that would be suitable to help them in their quest to find the lost gris gris before evil befalls them all and to find a murderer before it s too late.Lately I have been wanting to delve into mysteries that are out of my comfort zone Mysteries with magical and mystical elements and themes are way out of my comfort zone because I have a hard time understanding the language and dislike fantasy and snakes, it makes me shutter just thinking about it But I like these witches and the bakery theme had me wanting to read Magic and Macaroons just to discover what magical treats these witches would whip up.Katie and Cookie made a great team and they definitely put me under their spell This series is in great company with and reminds me so much of Ellery Adams Magical Pie Shop Mysteries and Heather Blake s Wishcraft Mysteries, If you love magical mysteries I highly recommend A complex and multi layered mystery with magical treats that i m a big fan of and so will you.FTC Disclosure Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy of this book for review.This did not influence my thoughts in any way All the opinions of the book and review are my own and my reviews are honest Another of the darker entries in the series, voodoo and

forto be published Another of the darker entries in the series, voodoo and snakes and view spoiler love potions It looks like the druids aren t as powerful as the voodoo worshipers, because Steve is totally saved by Katie hide spoiler One last book before having to wait forto be published My major gripe with this culinary paranornal cozy series in general The hedgewitch protagonist, Katie Lightfoot, should be with the warlock Steve, not the firefighter Declan. I wish this bakery was real I would have loved to have worked there when I was a student at SCAD.The look at voodoo in this book was interesting since I don t know much about it The snakes were creepy to me, but then I have never been too keen on them Some are pretty though The case was interesting and kept me involved I hope this series continues after the next book Every book in this series so far has not disappointed and this one was no exception I mean, holy cow, it was quite amazing Every book in the series so far has had a completely different murder, with a completely different mystery to solve I think this one was the most diverse so far I really loved it I was laughing at the snarkiness, gasping at the revelations, and smiling at the romance I realized about halfway through, that not only did I continue this series for the amazing mysteries, b Every book in this series so far has not disappointed and this one was no exception I mean, holy cow, it was quite amazing Every book in the series so far has had a completely different murder, with a completely different mystery to solve I think this one was the most diverse so far I really loved it I was laughing at the snarkiness, gasping at the revelations, and smiling at the romance I realized about halfway through, that not only did I continue this series for the amazing mysteries, but I am really continuing it for some of the romance It builds in every book and that s what makes this series even better No matter the change in mystery, the basis and romance never change, but build instead It s an amazing series overall, one of my favorites Actual Rating 3.5 This was an enjoyable read I thought that this book was not as good as the last four books I think there were some bits that annoyed me in this story I did not like the fact that the love triangle was reintroduced I wish that the author will continue to keep Katie with Declan It is just irritating to see how she gets around Steve, while she is with Declan It does not seem fair I wish there wasUncle Ben in the story as well However, despite that I did enjoy readin Actual Rating 3.5 This was an enjoyable read I thought that this book was not as good as the last four books I think there were some bits that annoyed me in this story I did not like the fact that the love triangle was reintroduced I wish that the author will continue to keep Katie with Declan It is just irritating to see how she gets around Steve, while she is with Declan It does not seem fair I wish there wasUncle Ben in the story as well However, despite that I did enjoy reading this book The mystery was interesting and the secondary characters brought a bit of comedy into the mix I can t wait to read book 6 Overall, a great read This is the 5th book in A Magical Bakery Mystery I have read the other 4 books in the series, and I have some reviews on them I listen to the audiobook for this book I love this cozy mystery series This book is my favorite so far in the series I have to say this book as a ton of magic and drama and it was fast moving I really love the characters in this book It keep you wanting to read it If you like cozy mysteries with watches and magic I would say you should give this book series a cha This is the 5th book in A Magical Bakery Mystery I have read the other 4 books in the series, and I have some reviews on them I listen to the audiobook for this book I love this cozy mystery series This book is my favorite so far in the series I have to say this book as a ton of magic and drama and it was fast moving I really love the characters in this book It keep you wanting to read it If you like cozy mysteries with watches and magic I would say you should give this book series a chance, but I feel this series needs to be read in order There is some much from one book that connects to the other books As much as I enjoyed some of the books in this series, Magic and Macaroons just did not enthrall me I am not liking the direction that this series is taking I will probably not be reading anyin this series There are much better cozies with animals in them 2 stars
