"Entertainment abounds when a coven of witches whip up a few spells to help their friend hold onto her bakery while losing her heart. Can a long distance romance work between a cowboy and a baker if they believe in magic?" ~ Dorine Linnen, Romance Junkies Reviews
* * * * *
Pretty Wiccan Rebecca Colby borrowed money from her father to start a bakery, and now he's calling the loan due. When she learns he fell off the gambling wagon and owes big money to some scary people, she has to start making a profit-and fast-before the loan shark takes a bite out of her.
Hot Cowboy Dru Tanner is looking for his missing sister who left Texas to explore their New England Wiccan roots. She's the only family he has left, and he's desperate to find her. Dru has to hide the fact that he's not a Wiccan long enough to infiltrate a coven in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. It's the only lead he has.
Dru needs a job and a place to stay while he searches for his sister. Rebecca needs cheap help so she can work some baking magic. Dru makes Rebecca an offer she can't refuse-if only lust doesn't drive them crazy first.

Anything involving cupcakes is going to be awesome in my mind, and this book is no exception. Ashlyn Chase’s new series is going to be as awesome as her other ones! So many genres woven into one: mystery, paranormal, romance, suspense and food! Dru is a cowboy looking for his sister, who is amnesic. Shasta is a witch who has opened a bakery. Rebecca’s father loaned her the money, but he wants it back because loan sharks are threatening him for gambling debts. Even while looking for his sister, Dru is helping Shasta. They are a great couple – and the chemistry is obvious. I won’t say any more because that would give too much away. But, I have an urge to go get a cupcake!
The Cupcake Coven by Ashlyn Chase is a first in a new series that I hope she keeps writing for a long time. I loved all of the characters in this first book. Hanna/Hazel, Rebecca, Fayleen, April/Shasta and Dru were all well developed characters that were quirky and relatable - except for maybe Fayleen. Fayleen provided the the fun and humorous moments that caused me to laugh out loud while I was reading. The plot moved smoothly and so quickly that I couldn't believe when it was over. There is more than one mystery, gangsters, magic and some sweet and sexy love between Rebecca and Dru. Definitely looking forward to the next book in this series, TUG OF ATTRACTION.
I really liked the characters Dru and Rebecca and thought that the story moved at the perfect pace. This is a book that you'll pick up and spend the entire afternoon reading. If you're looking for a funny, laid back novel to read this summer, this is a great choice!
