LET'S GET COZY: BROWNIES & BROOMSTICKS - A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
BROWNIES & BROOMSTICKS
A Magical Bakery Mystery
BY BAILEY CATES

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
EASY BAKE COVEN

Katie Lightfoot's tired of loafing around as the assistant manager of an Ohio bakery. So when her aunt Lucy and uncle Ben open a bakery in Savannah's quaint downtown district and ask Katie to join them, she enthusiastically agrees.

While working at the Honeybee Bakery—named after Lucy's cat—Katie notices that her aunt is adding mysterious herbs to her recipes. Turns out these herbal enhancements aren't just tasty—Aunt Lucy is a witch and her recipes are actually spells!


When a curmudgeonly customer is murdered outside the Honeybee Bakery, Uncle Ben becomes the prime suspect. With the help of handsome journalist Steve Dawes, charming firefighter Declan McCarthy, and a few spells, Katie and Aunt Lucy stir up some toil and trouble to clear Ben's name and find the real killer...


PRAISE FOR BROWNIES & BROOMSTICKS:
"Savory and suspenseful, Brownies and Broomsticks introduces Katie Lightfoot, a sassy new heroine, to the world of cozy mysteries. Katie is a charming amateur sleuth, baking her way through murder and magic set against the enchanting backdrop of Savannah, Georgia. With an intriguing plot and an amusing cast of characters, Brownies and Broomsticks is an attention grabbing read that I couldn't put down."  
- Jenn McKinlay, National Bestselling Author of the Cupcake Bakery Mysteries
