Rating: 🍫🍫🍫🍫


Anise Wise loves three things: baking, potion making, and reading her spellbooks in blissful silence. She might not be the most powerful witch, but enchantment is a rare skill, and her ability to bake with magic is even rarer. Too bad no one wants witchcraft on their campus. Anise’s dream of attending pastry school crumbles with rejection letter after rejection letter.

Desperate to escape her dead-end future, Anise contacts the long-lost relative she’s not supposed to know about. Great Aunt Agatha owns the only magic bakery in the US, and she suddenly needs a new apprentice. Anise is so excited she books it to New Mexico without thinking to ask what happened to the last girl.

The Spellwork Syndicate rules the local witches in Taos, but as “accidents” turn into full-out attacks on Anise’s life, their promises to keep her safe are less and less reassuring. Her cranky bodyguard is doing his best, but it’s hard to fight back when she has no idea who’s the enemy. Or why she became their target.

If Anise can’t find and stop whoever wants her dead, she’ll be more toasted than a crème brûlée.
Who knew baking cakes could be so life or death?

Cover Review:

The cover is beautiful and to be quite honest, delicious! Something I'd definitely display on my shelf with pride!

Book Review:

I started reading this book before my exams, and continued it after they were done. So my memory of the beginning is a little hazy. (Mind it, the gap was around a whole month) But I do remember feeling bored at the very beginning. But then there was all the action and the fire and I was totally wow-ed. 

Anise was an awesome character and watching her develop from the girl who never took risks into the girl who ultimately became the heroine was amazing. 

And Wynn, the silent protector. What can I say about him? My favourite moment was when he finally lets his guard down for just the tiniest second to smile in appreciation of the pie Anise made to thank him. 

Even more favourite was the fact that there was no romance between them. At least not in this one. But I'm hoping it'll be there in the next book, so yeah I just contradicted myself. 

Anyway, Deadly Sweet was a killer, full of action, sarcasm and witty remarks that made me giggle.
