Summary

If you'd asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders - the Adept - was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That's what 23 years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you - a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled...except for the cupcake part. That's a universal truth.

Voice compliments the character delightfully

This is the first book in one of my favorite series by one of my favorite authors, and the narration gave me new insight into Jade. I really loved hearing Meghan's vision of Jade instead of just reading it, and I look forward to listening to the other audiobooks. Hopefully Rochelle's intertwining story will be translated to audiobook soon as well!

Sweet treat for mystery fans

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I've never read the author's work before and got the ebook as a free offer and decided to add the audio book just for giggles. The trinkets were a neat little twist. The main character is a bit clueless at times although she admits that which is interesting. Fairly good narration although I got a little stuck at the over pronunciation of some words such as 'didn't,' it made the story "stutter".

Re-read/Listen to a phenomenal Series

This is an absolutely amazing bookverse. I cannot express enough how enticing, exciting, and riveting series this is. I have read these books several times and decided to listen to the ebooks and I cannot express how fun these are, brought to life with the narrators voice.

Revelations

An excellent narration by Caitlin Davies. The story by Meghan Ciara Doidge is an excellent story/ mystery. The mystery begins with Jade about to learn many things about herself and her so called sister, Sienna. Sienna is not blood related to Jade but taken in by Grams and raised with Jade. Jade makes trinkets which become endowed with magic. Sienna is jealous of all Jade has but mainly wants power. During this story you see someone die which begins the mystery and many revelations will occur. You will meet a vampire, Kett, Kandy, a werewolf and Desmond the alpha of a pack. Gram will show up as well as Scarlett who is Jade’s mother.
Some bad magic will happen but Jade will learn several things about herself but the main question is , “Who is my father?” Some of the revelations will be concerning her magic and Sienna’s hidden agenda.
I enjoyed the book immensely and the audible just added to my enjoyment of the book!

Delicious and magical

What did you love best about Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic?

I loved that it is based in Canada =)
I also loved the cupcakes ... I love cupcakes and the names are so fun and creative

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes and no
I loved how precise she read and her punctuation was bang on except her male characters, they came off sounding slow and dim witted
