Brownies and Broomsticks by Bailey Cates

Last year I found the book Daisies for Innocence by Bailey Cattrell at the library and I snapped it up because it had such a cute cover, and well, it was a mystery. Quite often that's all I need to know. Needless to say I loved it! (you can read what I thought about it by clicking on the title). The reason I'm telling you this is because that book was the first in a new series. I did some digging and it turns out that Bailey Cattrell was one of the names that the author of this book publishes under. There was a whole series she had written that I wanted to get my hands on.

You would be right in thinking this book is one of those cheesy titled, sweet, cosy mysteries with a single girl protagonist who finds herself solving a mystery when she probably has no business doing it, while getting stuck in a love triangle with two different and totally hot guys who both make it their life's work to save her butt at every turn even though they've only known her a week. 

And you know what? I loved it. It's silly and predictable, but honestly, it's a wonderful break from reality. It's just a book to pick up when you are looking for an easy read that sweeps you up, carries you off to a safe place, gives you a bit of romance and intrigue and keeps your mind occupied for a couple of hours. 

The bonus to this series is it involves magic. In this book, Katie Lightfoot moves to Savannah to open a bakery with her aunt and uncle. Shortly after arriving, she starts noticing strange things going on with her aunt. Turns out her aunt is actually a witch, and so is Katie! When a murder happens right outside the door of the shop, Katie's uncle becomes the prime suspect. With the help of her aunt and their witchy abilities, they must work together to find the real killer. 

For all its simplicity and cheese, I loved it. I will totally pick up more of this series and I am totally looking forward to the next one in the previous series too. This are just easy, fun reads. Like chocolate for the mind! 

Recommendation: If you're all about a good cheesy, cozy mystery that involves a little magic, than snap this one up. It'll be that distraction you've been looking for.
