EASY BAKE COVEN



Katie Lightfoot's tired of loafing around as the assistant manager of an Ohio bakery. So when her aunt Lucy and uncle Ben open a bakery in Savannah's quaint downtown district and ask Katie to join them, she enthusiastically agrees.

While working at the Honeybee Bakery—named after Lucy's cat—Katie notices that her aunt is adding mysterious herbs to her recipes. Turns out these herbal enhancements aren't just tasty—Aunt Lucy is a witch and her recipes are actually spells!

When a curmudgeonly customer is murdered outside the Honeybee Bakery, Uncle Ben becomes the prime suspect. With the help of handsome journalist Steve Dawes, charming firefighter Declan McCarthy, and a few spells, Katie and Aunt Lucy stir up some toil and trouble to clear Ben's name and find the real killer..

"Let Cates cast her spell over you with this charming debut series entry that brings in the paranormal but never forgets the warmth that cozy readers often request." —Library Journal
Library Journal
Katie Lightfoot jumpstarts her stalled life by moving to Savannah, GA and partnering up with her aunt Lucy and uncle Ben, who are opening a bakery. Honeybee Bakery seems destined for success until one of their customers, Mavis Templeton, is murdered in her car after being seen arguing with Uncle Ben. Further, Katie is startled to learn Aunt Lucy is a witch. Things make more sense, sort of, when Katie starts to understand her own gifts. Feeling freshly empowered, she learns more about the enemies Mavis had amassed over the years. With the help of two smitten young hunks, one a firefighter and one a journalist, Katie narrows down the list of murder suspects. VERDICT Let Cates cast her spell over you with this charming debut series entry that brings in the paranormal but never forgets the warmth that cozy readers often request. Solving crimes using witchcraft might not be to everyone's taste, but it's hard to argue with these recipes. Cates also writes as Cricket McRae. Share with readers who like Juliet Blackwell's "Witchcraft" series.
