Cindy is a witch....not doing too well as she keeps kissing men.....and then they turn into toads - not good. She cant seem to control it, but when Timothy enters her life, shes smitten, but resists kissing him in fear of it happening.
Cindy is a whizz with cupcakes, cakes, pies - anything that involves combining unusual flavours. She loves it, and a little of her magic leaks into each one, making people feel happy after eating them! Nice little after effect!
Cindy and her friends resolve to a life of just eating ice cream...SweetDreams ice cream to be more precise! But when one day Cindy is in a less than joyful mood and yanks a tub out and begins to eat it....and recognises the flavours that she had made a cake with that day before! As if things cant get worse, shes now copying ice cream flavours without realising. Mood sinks lower!
And then the owners of the bakery announce they're selling, that leaves Cindy and her 2 housemates potentially jobless...
....but as always things are not what they seem!
Cindy and her housemates make a plan to keep Cindy making her cakes in a little travelling catering truck!
But what of Timothy? Does he turn into a toad? Is he who he seems? Needless to say its not smooth sailing but is it ever?
A really cute and easy read. Nicely written, likeable characters and a feel good book. Not very paranormal, more she just happens to be a witch, so its leaning alot over to chick lit, but i found it refreshing to read after all the doom and gloom books i normally love to read.
Something to lift the spirits!
On the whole the plot is well-paced but the ending does seem a bit rushed in the fact that one minute they are not speaking and the next, everything is all hunky-dory! I know that love is blind but I do find it strange that such emphasis was put on how fast Mr Right drove. A white-knuckle drive is so not sexy in my mind but hey, what do I know!?
This is a book that starts a new series so there are plenty of questions left open and more stories to tell. If you like humorous, romantic, magical bakers then give this book a try.
Have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. So many series with similar themes. Nice to see one that has chosen a different path. Love the originality of this book.
The main characters are excellent and believable. Not sure about the heroines contrived name, though I do know worse.
The story runs gently along giving you time to enjoy getting to know the characters. The storyline keeps you totally involved to the end. Despite the book's title the toads, both of them, had definite personalities shame they are not still with us for the second book. Nice reversal of the princess/frog story.
The flavours for the cakes and ice cream were something else. Why was there no recipes at the end of the book?? We have a lovely little cafe in York, England, where I live. The variety of unusual flavours of the cakes make me a regular. Got some very funny comments from the owner/baker on some of your flavour combinations. She has offered to try one or two. So on your head be it.
Its clear book two will take a completely different storyline whilst keeping, I hope, the main characters. It's my next to read and am looking forward to it. Will let you know how I got on.
Thank you to the author. It's so nice to have a break from the usual.
To anyone reading this simple review please read the book as I am sure my review does not do it justice. Sorry for the headline pun.
I love this book! I was seriously disappointed when it was over lol. I do not know how Elizabeth does it but with every book she writes the world becomes more and more immersive and alive :) I admit freely that I am a Cindy Eller addict :) And i want to infect everyone else my addiction :) These books are fast paced and easy to read as Elizabeth's voice breathes life into her characters and their world. The only complaint I ever have is that I want MORE !!!! :)
***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers who enjoy modern fantasy with a fractured fairytale vibe and magical mayhem with a dash of romance :)
I found this book a bit too silly and found myself reading it faster towards the end for all the wrong reasons (I just wanted to finish it so I could read something better).
