Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Wishful Endings. Basically books that are not yet out that we are dying to get our hands on. This week’s pick is:
Sugar Spells (The Spellwork Syndicate #2) by Lola Dodge
For Fans of Hex Hall, The Magicians, Practical Magic, and Food Wars!
After her run-in with a jealous warlock, apprentice baker Anise Wise can’t wait to get back to the kitchen where she belongs. But thanks to her brush with death, the land of the living isn’t all cupcakes and marshmallows.
Anise’s magical mojo is way out of whack and her evolving powers are stirring up trouble. As the town buzzes with news that Anise can bake deathly spells, unsavory characters start lining up for a taste. They’ll stop at nothing for a chance to use Anise and her witchcraft to further their own plots.
She plans to hole up researching magic recipes until the attention dies down, but then she discovers the horrifying terms of her bodyguard’s contract. Wynn has saved her life so many times, she can’t leave him trapped. But doing the right thing will mean risking death or worse—being cast out of her dream job.
For this witch, justice might not be as sweet as advertised.
Why I’m Waiting:
I really enjoyed the first book and the mix of magic and baking. It made me want to bake and try new recipes constantly while reading too! I am excited to see what is going to happen with the story and learning more about this way of life. The cover just dropped for this sequel and yep it has encouraged me to go for it and give macarons a try.
