All Anise wants is to become a pastry chef but applying to college isn’t easy when you’re a witch Shouldn’t magic make her life easier? In small ways maybe But baking a little happiness into cookies isn’t the same thing as waving a magic wand and making all your dreams come true Normal people are scared of her and even her own mother—the only other witch Anise has ever known—would rather she didn’t use her powers at allWhen Anise is assaulted at a local fair her untempered magic comes to her rescue incinerating the baking tent and leaving a trail of crime behind Then with superior witchy timing Anise’s great aunt invites her to apprentice at the only witch sanctioned bakery in the country and Anise jumps at the chance But things go from bad to worse as Anise discovers that finally embracing her power might come with a terrible priceI just loved this read I mean spells and sugar? My two favorite things Add a young woman trying to find her way in the world and yeah Lola Dodge hooked me hard The first chapter is one of my favorite first chapters ever so I think might have over hyped myself for the rest of the book Can you over hype yourself on a read? What do you think? Is that a thing?After that brilliant start I wanted to see of Anise’s baking power There was plenty of magic and plenty of baking but I wanted of the two together I wanted to see magical baking I wanted to feel it And I wanted to read the spell books What’s in there??? WHAT SECRETS DO THEY POSSESS???Ahem Anyhoo read that first syllable all drawn out btw “AAAAAAAAAnyhoo” the book was still a super fun read and if it left me wanting hey that’s a good thing The series promises to get deeper into her magical training later on and Anise promises to get stronger and wiser over time I’m looking forward to both and I’ll definitely be reading the next book just as soon as I can get my hands on it

Anise Wise loves three things baking potion making and reading her spellbooks in blissful silence She might not be the most powerful witch but enchantment is a rare skill and her ability to bake with magic is even rarer Too bad no one wants witchcraft on their campus Anise’s dream of attending pastry school crumbles with rejection letter after rejection letterDesperate to esc Deadly Sweet by Lola Dodge is the first book in the new Spellwork Syndicate series This one is a bit of a young adultnew adult fantasyparanormal read mixed with a bit of mystery The main character is a young kitchen witch who bakes spells into her goodies but after moving to a new town finds herself the target of an assassinThis was a nice enough opener to this series introducing readers to Anise who is a witch and wants to attend pastry school but keeps getting rejected After a witchy accident she learns of a great aunt that will take her to a witch friendly town and teach her to bake The only problem is this puts Anise on a hit list with many attempts on her life I didn’t find the mystery too particularly difficult to figure out in this one as the story went on Also what I kept wishing for while reading this one was a bit into the magical side of things I think the story focused a bit on dessert than magic most times which left me wanting to know about the powers and witchcraft But even with being a tad on the predictable side and not going very deep into the magical world it was still a light and fun young adult readI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

Deadly Sweet The Spellwork Syndicate #1Ape her dead end future Anise contacts the long lost relative she’s not supposed to know about Great Aunt Agatha owns the only magic bakery in the US and she suddenly needs a new apprentice Anise is so excited she books it to New Mexico without thinking to ask what happened to the last girlThe Spellwork Syndicate rules the local witches in Taos but as “accidents” turn int I received a free ARC copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewA pleasant though slightly predictable tale of a young inexperienced magical baker trying to find her place in a new town where she can finally use her gifts freely The book itself is a bit magical realism rather than full on magical hijinks and also focuses far on baking than magic So if you are a foodie or you enjoy foodporn this is might be for you Though if you are hungry this may not be the best thing to read because you will just be envious of the delicious baked goods that are described but that you cannot have In terms of writing the book was simple and rather straightforward I found the first half to be a bit slow in terms of plot development but it did pick up around the 50% mark The surprise reveal was not much of a surprise for me Because I placed my bets on who the villain was going to be pretty early on view spoiler Also it finally happened guys For once I did not fall for the nice boy act Finally learned my lesson with these book boys Because I have been betrayed too many times hide spoiler
