That's it? Really?

So this book was clearly a placeholder until the series end. There was no story per se and I felt it was edited to hurry up and finish. Nothing was resolved.

This series just keeps getting better!

A cozy mystery with witches and baking to entertain and delight! This series is quickly coming to a conclusion and I’ll be waiting on pins and needles until I can listen to the next book! Poppy’s life is really getting exciting as she keeps trying to figure out her birth heritage, her friends are coming to the end of the baking competition and of course, another murder to solve! This narrator is quickly becoming a favorite as she does an outstanding job of bringing the characters to life!

Sweet cliffhanger.

This is a wonderful installment of a great series. I’m looking forward to the next but unfortunately possibly the last book in the series. If you’re looking for a series that is lighthearted with lLikable characters that seems like old friends and this is the series for you. Enjoy!

Great series

The Baking Show will have its last contest in the next book- sad to say. This is a fun and well written series with characters you will be happy to come back to revisit and for more questions to be asked /answered. This is Book 8 and another murder happens and the game's afoot to find out what is going on---and why is this all happen around Poppy. Is she safe or should she leave for her own sake? What will happen next in the contest and what will happen to Poppy?

I have loved this series from the start-
