Series: A Magical Bakery Mysteries - Book 7
Author: Bailey Cates
Genre: Witch/Paranormal Cozy
Publisher: Berkley Publishing Group

Bailey Cates is a brilliant writer who is imaginative and original. Potions and Pastries is the 7th book in the Magical Bakery Mysteries Series. It is a tremendously well-written story that compliments the series and creates a desire in the reader for more.

Katie is learning what she is capable of and to trust her instincts. When Aunt Lucy’s friend, Orla is run down in front of her, she senses that it was no accident. It doesn’t take her long to convince her coven, Aunt Lucy and Uncle Ben, and boyfriend, Declan that she is right and enlist their help in finding the crafty culprit.

The characters in this story, as well as the entire series, have habits and personalities that make them endearing and unforgettable. Katie is still coming to terms with her magic. She is fearful at times that it will get out of her control as she did once before. She is cautious but able to overcome her apprehensions at just the right time.

Declan is an interesting romantic lead as well as a genuinely nice person. Aunt Lucy and Uncle Ben are adorable, entertaining and the type of relatives it would be great to have. The other characters are equally interesting and pleasurable.

Savannah is a gorgeous setting for this series. With the historical homes and businesses, Spanish moss and green spaces at every turn, it is romantic and easily lends itself to magical ideas. The riverfront is filled with hustle and bustle, with street vendors hawking their wares, yet retains a semblance of a time long ago.

The use of dragonflies as spiritual guides is a charming addition that is steeped in historical mythology. The reader can imagine them buzzing around leading Katie to her next adventure or clue. Myth has it that dragonflies, signify change, mainly of self-realization; the type of change that gives a person a profound understanding of the meaning of life. Traditionally the Dragonfly’s harried flight while skimming across water represents going beyond what’s on the surface. This is very aptly used in Ms. Cates series.

Readers will find themselves on pins and needles waiting to turn the page and finding all the clues to the identity of the killer. The reveal of the murderer will come as a surprise to many readers. Overall Potions and Pastries is a delightful addition to this series. It is highly recommended to anyone who enjoys authors such as Heather Graham or Ellery Adams

Maybe I wasn't in the mood for this sort of book when I read it. Seemed too squeaky clean for me and I got bored. ( )

This is one of my favourite cozy/paranormal mystery and, as usual, it was a lovely reading, definitely better than the last one. Less sugary and more fun
The entire plot is based on murder that could not be a murder and the heroine is looking for the answer as well as trying to learn who was the culprit. I enjoyed the turns in the plot as well as the development of the heroine love life and of the other of the cast of charachters.
The book, even if it is part of a series but can be read standalone and it is rich in details and explanation.
A very lovely read if you enjoy witches mysteries with a touch of romance.
Many thanks to Netgalley and Berkley for allowing me to review this book. ( )

Katie Last ghtfoote is a hedgewitch and a catalyst “lightwitch.” Things just seem to happen around her whether she wants things to happen or not. Katie, her fiancé Declan, her aunt and uncle were out celebrating the 2 year Anniverssry of The Honeybee Bakery. As they strolled in a Savannah Park, they spotted Orla Black, a friend of Katie’s Aunt Lucy. Orla was telling fortunes in her tarot booth. She told Katie that she would be having a major sacrice of some sort. The next day Orla stepped in front of a car just outside the bakery. Katie felt it was her duty to figure out why Orla died. This wasn’t anywhere near as fast moving, supernatural or even mildly scary as the past books in this series. I was a bit let down. However, most of the characters are facing major changes in their lives, which I would imagine will happen in the next episodes. A pleasant little story, but not what I was hoping for. ( )

Potions and Pastries by Bailey Cates is the seventh story in A Magical Bakery Mystery series. Katie Lightfoot along with her Aunt Lucy and Uncle Ben own the Honeybee Bakery in Savannah, Georgia. They provide baked goods that have a magical boost. Ben, Lucy, Katie, and her fiancé, Declan are out walking along the riverfront and see friend Orla Black telling fortunes. Orla has a message for Katie that she takes as a warning--sacrifice. What will Katie have to sacrifice? The next day Katie sees Orla nearby and wishes to get more information from her. Unfortunately, Orla walks in front of a car and is struck dead before Katie can speak with her. It looks like an accident, but Katie’s magical awareness tells her something sinister is afoot. Katie, Declan and the spellbook club work together to find out what happened to Orla. But what happens when Katie gets close to uncovering the truth?

Potions and Pastries is best enjoyed if you have read the other books in A Magical Bakery Mystery series. It can be a little confusing (especially in the beginning) when all the various spellbook club members are introduced. I found this story to be well-written and engaging. I was drawn into the story and I liked the magical elements. Potions and Pastries has great characters that you will enjoy visiting in each new installment in the series. The only downfall for me was the mystery. I identified the guilty party before the Orla was struck by the car. I did appreciate the author use of misdirection to lead readers on a merry chase. Potions and Pastries is a light cozy mystery with magic, humor, family, friends, pets and luscious baked goods. I am giving Potions and Pastries 4 out of 5 stars. I look forward to reading the next novel in A Magical Bakery Mystery series. ( )
