Bewitched, Bothered, And Biscotti, by Bailey Cates
★★★ and 1/2 (rounding up to 4)
Synopsis: A WITCH WITH A WHISK As a new witch—not to mention owner of Savannah’s most enchanting bakery—Katie Lightfoot is still getting used to casting spells, brewing potions, and mastering her magical powers. But that doesn’t mean she can’t find time to enjoy a picnic with firefighter Declan McCarthy…until she stumbles upon a corpse. The dead man’s tattoo reveals he was a member of a secret society—and it turns out he's missing an object that was very important to the group. When Katie learns the killer was after more than the man's life, she and her Aunt Lucy leave the baked goods on the rack to cool and set off in hot pursuit of a killer.
In A Sentence: Fun and enjoyable and fast.
What Was Fun: This was the second book in the Magical Bakery series, and, just like before, it was fun and quick. The characters are enjoyable, and the plot moves at a good pace. There's mystery, magic, and humor, and good energy all around.
Can't Stand This Though: I still don't like love triangles, but it wasn't as bad as the last book. I also didn't like the narrator for the audiobook this time around. She sounded huskier than the last one, which didn't seem to fit the feel of the story. The narrator of the previous book was perkier which added more to the book.
Overall: This is a fun read for sure and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who likes cozy mysteries or books about witches. Try to read this one in print though; I didn't think this narrator suited the book like the previous narrator did.
