Description from the publisher:

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 twenty-three 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.


Jade is the grand-daughter of one of the strongest witches around, but she does not have great magic of her own except to be able to detect magic in others.  Instead, she is a wizard at baking and has opened a cupcake shop.  When she is suddenly confronted by a vampire and a pack of werewolves in her tiny, quiet village, and they are convinced she is the reason for the deaths of many other werewolves, her simple, peaceful life is suddenly not so simple or peaceful.


Take two cups of mythical beings – shifters, werewolves, witches, and zombies.  Add one cup of mystery, two tablespoons of jealousy, and three pinches of secrets.  Mix well and add a large dollop of sexy for the icing on your cake!  There was a lot of fun in this story and the secrets and mystery kept me guessing until the very end.  I loved all of the characters – even our villains were lovable.


What do you get the blogger who already has 4,000 books on her TBR pile?  If it’s me, the next book in this series would be an excellent idea!  I would love to see what happens next!
