Brownies and Broomsticks… a book review

What is better than a good mystery with some magic thrown in? Brownies and Broomsticks by Bailey Cates is the first in her new A Magical Bakery Mystery series. Katie has picked up stakes and moved to Savannah, Georgia from Ohio to start a new life with her Aunt Lucy and Uncle Ben at their new bakery.

Honeybee Bakery is a whole new beginning for Katie complete with an unusual book group, unique characters… and a murder right outside the door! As Katie tries to help clear her uncle she is brought into a world of magic and spells. With an innate talent all her own to discover and a coven to help her Katie has more on her plate than the yummy delicacies coming out of the oven.

This was a great first in a series. The characters are interesting and fun, the main character is no push over and the setting enjoyable. Multiple men feature in this novel but there is very little angsty anything. 

If you are interesting in supernatural and mystery with cozy mixed in this could be the series for you! I would love further clarification on why Katie only needs an hour of sleep… it does not seem to figure into the mystery…but perhaps that will be cleared up in the next mystery??Brownies-and-Broomsticks
