some-enchanted-eclair-magical-bakery-mystery-bailey-catesThis is the first time I have read the work of Bailey Cates and thought it was different with a lot of interesting twists. I love the way they weave spells over the goods to enhance the natural effects of the spiced baked goods.

One thing about this book I can say for sure, it was unpredictable and kept me wondering what was going to happen next so much so that I didn’t want to put it down. And as a bonus there was also a few chuckles thrown in. I really enjoyed this book because it was so realistic and easy to follow.

Katie Lightfoot owns a bakery called Honeybee Bakery with her Aunt Lucy and Uncle Ben and all is quiet until the film crews arrive. The stage is Savannah Georgia’s historic district for a revolutionary war film and Katie’s Uncle Ben and boyfriend Declan are hired on as security.

Katie is trying to keep away from the madness but the madness came to her when Simon Knapp, production co-coordinator, decided to fire the catering company and came to Katie’s place to see if she will do the catering for them, something that they don’t normally do but with such a generous amount of money offered who can say no?

Now Simon has been killed and somehow it involves witchery and Katie has been drawn into the mystery to figure out who and why. When new clues arise and a seance is done all sorts of changes are coming about, it just might be the end of Katie’s boyfriend Declan and of Katie in more ways than one, their relationship or their death.

This was pure magic and a masterfully done piece of work. Bailey Cates cast her own magic on this book and I think it is probably one of the best plots ever written that I have had the pleasure to read.
