The Spellwork Syndicate #2
After her run-in with a jealous warlock, apprentice baker Anise Wise can’t wait to get back into the kitchen where she belongs. But thanks to her brush with death, the land of the living isn’t all cupcakes and marshmallows.
Anise’s magical mojo is way out of whack and her changed powers are stirring up trouble. The town’s abuzz with news that Anise can bake deathly spells, and unsavory characters start lining up for a taste. They’ll stop at nothing to use Anise and her witchcraft to further their own plots.
She plans to hole up researching solutions until the attention dies down, but then she discovers the horrifying terms of her bodyguard’s contract. Wynn has saved her life so many times, she can’t leave him trapped. Doing the right thing will mean risking death or worse—losing her dream job.
For this witch, justice might not be as sweet as advertised.
The Spellwork Syndicate Series
1. Deadly Sweet
2. Sugar Spells
I read the first book, Deadly Sweet, after being approved to read second book on Netgalley.
I enjoyed the first read and this book continued and was as enjoyable. These are simple stories with lots of wonderful tasty bakes and a cozy magical feel. Perfect read for on the couch with a snuggle blanket on a wet afternoon.
Thank you to NetGalley, Inscribe Digital and Lola Dodge for the opportunity to read and review this novel prior to publication.
