Good witches, bad witches, werewolves and vampires. Not my usual taste in books, but this story is so well written that about 10 pages in I forgot that. I came to care for the characters and had a small voice in my head yelling advice to the characters (No! Don't believe them. It's a trap!). Honestly, that hasn't happened to me since I was a kid, so kudos to Ms Doidge for being able to press that button.
The only negative was that there was no recipes nor samples of the deliciously delectable sounding cupcakes!
Note: I don't find reviews that tell you all about the plot helpful. I can find that out in the product description and often they give too much away so that I don't feel I need to read the book. So, I write the type of reviews I find most helpful. I hope you do, too.
I flew through this and it was just the thing to perk a girl up first thing in the morning 😊
The magic used by Jade was interesting, and Kett and Kandy are fun side characters. The identity of the murderer became apparent very early on in the book, but that didn’t hinder my enjoyment of seeing how the author would take us to the conclusion.
This is an excellent story, it is different and unputdownable. Werewolves, witches and vampires, with a necromancer thrown into the mix, I just had to finish it once I had started it. The heroine is interesting and engaging, her magic and interactions with the other magic users was intriguing and I can’t wait to read more in this series.
Interesting characters, that I'm sure the reader will get to learn more about as the books continue. Jade is a bit slow or naive, took her ages to figure out who the villian was. Oh well she has lived a sheltered life. The vampire and shifters were more likeable. It's a nice story, I look fwd to the next one.
Ingredients: Werewolves, vampire and a half-witch/half-not-human. Throw in some unexplained murders, guilt-manipulation and bakery treats, and you get a lively novel, with lots of action and humour. And the munchies.
