Overview

This time, the MacBrides are home to stay. The Biscuit Witch A Crossroads Café Novella Book One of The MacBrides Dear Dr. Firth: I know you are in your cups at this time, drinking, taking pills, and sleeping under trees, but I have some experience rehabilitating lost souls in that regard, and so I am enclosing a box of my biscuits and a cold-wrapped container of cream gravy for dessert. Please eat and write back. We need a veterinarian of your gumption here in the Crossroads Cove of Jefferson County. --Delta Whittlespoon, proprietress of The Crossroads Café Biscuit witches, Mama called them. She’d heard the term as a girl. She’d inherited that talent. My mother could cast spells on total strangers simply by setting a plate of her biscuits in front of them. –Tal MacBride Welcome back to the Crossroads Cove where new loves, old feuds, and poignant mysteries will challenge siblings Tal, Gabby, and Gus MacBride to fight for the home they lost and to discover just how important their family once was, and still is, to the proud people of the Appalachian highlands. Tallulah MacBride hasn’t been back to North Carolina since their parents’ tragic deaths, twenty years ago. But now, Tal heads to cousin Delta Whittlespoon’s famous Crossroads Café in the mountains above Asheville, hoping to find a safe hiding place for her young daughter, Eve. What she finds is Cousin Delta gone, the café in a biscuit crisis, and a Scotsman, who refuses to believe she’s passing through instead of “running from.” He believes she needs a knight in shining flannel. When a pair of sinister private eyes show up, Tal’s troubles are just beginning. For Tal’s brother and sister—Gabby, the Pickle Queen, and Gus, the Kitchen Charmer—the next part of the journey will lead down forgotten roads and into beautiful but haunted legacies.

    What a delightful book! A richly detailed, laugh-out-loud-fun book full of wonderful descriptive phrases that will tickle your funny bone, entice your nose and warm your heart! Tallulah Mac Bride, the Biscuit Witch, had a scary childhood, a scared adolescence, and a tough first few years of young motherhood. Things had just gotten worse, a lot worse. She is on the run, with her daughter Eve, from a powerful, influential man. This book will tug your heartstrings and make you laugh until you risk spraining your fondant. (trust me, when you read it, this will make sense to you) I will tell you very little, because I want you to enjoy the story as it unfolds as much as I did!

    Copy provided by Netgalley for an unbiased review.

    I read The Biscuit Witch right after reading The Crossroads Cafe, so it felt almost like a continuation of "Crossroads". Also because of that, it felt a bit abbreviated to me. Things happened pretty quickly between Tal & Doug (it is a novella after all). Even so, the fact that their relationship grew so quickly didn't feel particularly unbelievable because of how the characters are drawn. The familiar characters from Crossroads Cafe were there, as were the lovely descriptions of the N.C. mountains. Overall it was a quick and enjoyable read. One that left me with a serious hankering for some good biscuits...

    Deborah Smith has cooked up another winner

    Readers familiar with Ms. Smith's work will recognize some characters from The Crossroads Cafe. The new family introduced here adds a new group of quirky folks to the western North Carolina mountain area. A mom is running from a sinister ex who is trying to take their daughter. A Scottish veterinarian has found peace and a home in a charming,deserted town, once a thriving area supported by a bicycle factory. The story will intrigue and enchant you as witch tales are supposed to. No one tells the southern rural stories better than Deborah Smith. I cannot wait for the other two books in this series.

    Definitely a must read. Deb Smith's "The Biscuit Witch"

    Definitely a must read. Deb Smith's "The Biscuit Witch" latched on to me on page 1, dug its hooks into me, and transported me to the mountains of North Carolina to feel the story and characters. Ms. Smith's humor weaves its way into the story and I will never look at fondant the same way again. Do yourself a favor and read this book. Can't wait for the stories about Tal's sister and brother.
