Brownies and Broomsticks…. And other magical recipes!

browniesandbroomsticksGreat. Now I want to be a witch, and I also want a peanut butter brownie. And maybe opening a pastry shop like Katie Lightfoot would be nice…

Katie Lightfoot is a 25 year old woman that starts her life over in Savannah, Georgia, after a bad break up, with the help of her aunt Lucy.  This happens to turn into quite an adventure, as she learns that she is a witch, meets two very interesting men, and has to solve a murder case. All in one month. Wow. I wish my life was that exciting.

The title of the book does not disappoint; the story is indeed a Magical Bakery Mystery (in all ways possible, it is full of baking, magic and a quite intriguing murder riddle), and as far as the brownies…well… spoiler alert: you’ll find a great recipe for them at the back of the book. Personally, after finishing the story in one day, I am about to shop for  the ingredients and give it a try.

Brownies and Broomsticks is the first book of the Magical Bakery Mystery series. So far the series consists of five books, all bearing quite amusing titles, such as Bewitched, Bothered and Biscotti . To anyone interested in mysteries, magic, and a large dose of humor, I highly suggest giving the books a try – I am already in the middle of the second story and determined to not sleep enough for the second night in a row in order to finish this one, too!
