SPIRITS AND SOURDOUGH is book ten in the Magical Bakery Mysteryseries by Bailey Cates. I always look forward to these books because it’s such an interesting concept. I don’t usually read many Paranormal Cozy Mysteries, but this one is an exception.
I think one of the best things about this book is the hedgewitch, Katie and the whole community that surrounds the Honeybee Bakery. There’s such an interesting group of characters that you can’t help but be curious about them.
Also, there’s a soft romance thread throughout the series that makes a romance reader like me swoon. I love Declan and enjoy seeing the small pockets of romantic scenes that they have in these books. Paired with the interesting mystery and you’ve got the perfect concoction for a great book! For something unique and original, you can count on Bailey Cates to deliver.
Baker Katie Lightfoot needs a sprinkle of magic to solve a haunting mystery in this New York Times bestselling series.
Hedgewitch Katie Lightwood works at the Honeybee Bakery in Savannah, and she’s always up for investigating her adopted hometown’s rich supernatural history. That’s why she’s taking a ghost tour for the very first time. But when the psychic tour guide tells Katie that she’s being followed by the ghost of a recently murdered woman, and Katie realizes she met the woman earlier that day, she knows she must bring the killer to justice.
And this murder isn’t even the only mystery Katie needs to solve. Her new husband, Declan McCarthy, is missing the guardian spirit who always watched over him, and she’s concerned that Dec’s life could be at risk if they can’t find him. Under pressure from the living and the dead, Katie will need all of her magical skills to start an investigation from scratch and avoid half-baked alibis, because this baker “kneads” to find a killer.
