Review: A Taste of Magic by Tracy Madison (New Author Challenge)

Mixing It Up

Today is Elizabeth Stevens’s birthday, and not only is it the one-year anniversary of her husband leaving her, it’s also the day her bakery is required to make a cake—for her ex’s next wedding. If there’s a bitter taste in her mouth, no one can blame her.

But today, Liz is about to receive a gift. Her Grandma Verda isn’t just wacky; she’s a little witchy. An ancient gypsy magic has been passed through her family bloodline for generations, and it’s Liz’s turn to be empowered. Henceforth, everything she bakes will have a dash of delight and a pinch of wishes-can-come-true. From her hunky policeman neighbor, to her gorgeous personal trainer, to her bum of an ex-husband, everyone Liz knows is going to taste her power. Revenge is sweet…and it’s only the first dish to be served.

This was a really cute paranormal romance, very light on the paranormal. Liz is having a really bad year and decides that her birthday is the perfect time to start over. Luckily, her grandmother agrees. I liked the chaos that her magical food created. The relationships that evolve out of these yummy deserts are fun. My favorite part is what she does to her ex-husband (but I’m not going to tell – you’ll have to read it to find out). I can’t wait to read the next book in the series, A Stroke of Magic, in June.

the book girl gives this book a 4/5!
