Magic & Macaroons by Bailey Cates Audio Review

three-half-stars

From the New York Times bestselling author of Some Enchanted Éclair comes a tale of delicious desserts and supernatural sleuthing…

For magical baker Katie Lightfoot, the only way to beat the Savannah summer heat is to whip up some cool treats for the Honeybee Bakery’s patrons. But when a meeting of the spellbook club is interrupted by a stranger collapsing on the floor of her shop, mumbling something about a voodoo talisman, Katie drops everything to begin investigating.

Her search for answers quickly leads her into a dangerous blend of Savannah’s infamous voodoo queens, a powerful missing charm—and a deadly witch who seems to be targeting the city’s magical community. And with the case getting hotter by the second, Katie will have to work fast to track down the talisman and the killer before the timer runs out…

Welcome back to the Honeybee Bakery and the world of Katie Lightfoot.  We get back into this one by seeing Katie at her spell club meeting when someone collapses at the meeting. Katie of course feels the need to get to the bottom of it all and this is where the fun begins. I think this book may be my favorite out of the whole series as it covers one of my favorite topics which is voodoo.  I loved how Katie stumbles into this world and how she processes it all. I think this book also showed the growth of Katie as a character. She has really learned how to use her powers and more about what she can really do.

 

As the story continues and Katie gets closer to the truth things get more dangerous for her. I liked that this one gave us a little darker side to magic and gave us more history about it all. Katie find herself on the hunt for a gris gris that is the key to a lot of the mystery and she learns that there may be some people that don’t want her to find it. I think I loved this one the most because we got to see more of Katie and Cookie working together.  Cookie was a force to be reckoned with and I think I was a little surprised that she was as powerful as she was. Overall this was another great listen and I look forward to the next one.
