Spells and Scones (Magical Bakery, #6)
Spells and Scones - Bailey Cates

Eh.  I generally enjoy Bailey Cates' writing, but a few of my least favorite tropes were trotted out for this one:  the relationship crossroads; the ex's last ditch effort (which was SO transparently meant to give Steve an HEA) at reconciliation; the jealousy bit with Mungo the dog... eh.


The mystery plotting  didn't light up my disco ball either. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great; too few clues and a reliance on the 'lightbulb' moment at the very end.  Reading Golden Age mysteries is ruining my mediocre tastes.


Still, a relaxing enough read when one's brain has been overtaxed in real life.



This book qualifies for the Murder Your Darlings Scene of the Crime card:  Gryffindor Common Room.  This was one of the crime scenes identified by Nighttime Reading Center in the Green Game Round, so worth 10 points for my team (Themis-Athena, Lillelara and myself).


My misunderstanding of the rules left me with this book unused, so I'm using it for the Suspect: Jane Austen cards.  (Alliterative Title)

Monday Mini Review – Orchard by Jack H Bailey #JackHBailey
Orchard - Jack H. Bailey


I won a paperback copy of Orchard by Jack H Bailey and wanted to share it with you. Looking for fiction that reads as if true, look no further.


Amazon  /  Goodreads




Bombastic fictional story that reads as if it is true, of union busting mining companies and the dangerous, yet understandable characters who shot, blasted, and bombed their way through life. Be careful about backing your prey into a corner. Orchard by Jack H Bailey proves that violence is not the answer. The fantastic writing had me believing every word, caught up as if the story is real, and I had to keep reminding myself that this terribly sad story was fictitious.

Blog Tour - Indecent Exposure


Is there a problem, Officer?


Jack Garrett isn’t a police officer yet, but there’s already an emergency. His new firearms instructor—the one who just dropped every jaw in the academy gym—is the same sexy Irish stranger Jack locked lips with last night. The Olympic gold medalist and expert markswoman is now officially off-limits, but Jack’s never cared much for rules . . .


Katie McCoy’s been cooped up in a shooting range for too long. A wild love affair is just what she needs to let loose, though she never imagined it would be with her smokin’ hot trainee. She cannot get involved with Jack—but a quick fling? Perfect. Falling hard for a charismatic recruit with an equal amount of sex appeal and secrets? Bloody stupid.


Jack’s charmed the pants off plenty of women (literally), yet few have ever looked beyond his perfect surface. Until Katie. He’ll do anything to keep her in his life . . . except tell her about his past. But a tiny lie of omission never hurt anyone, right?

About Tessa Bailey:


Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention. She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

good book and characters
Too Hard to Forget - Tessa Bailey

Belmont had just driven into Ohio and Peggy- his sister-felt like she was going to throw up. The third person with the siblings was Sage who was Peggy’s best friend. In two weeks Peggy had lost two siblings. -Rita and Aaron. She was on the way to losing Belmont. Peggy was going to Cincinnati to complete a mission of revenge she had decided to do.Peggy had been engaged four times. And wore the rings around her neck as a symbol of her shame. Soon Peggy would be on the campus where Elliott Brooks - who was a coach- who had ruined Peggy for all others. Rebounds hadn’t worked for Peggy so she was returning the favor. Peggy was going to make Elliot’s life  hell. It was Peggy’s last chance to move on. Elliot was head coach of the Bearcats and had the coach of the year award two times. Elliot had broken Peggy’s heart. Elliot came from a very religious background. Elliot had lost his wife but it wasn’t a loving marriage but Elliot still felt guilty for the way he felt about Peggy. Elliot pushed Peggy out of his life but three years later Peggy was back and since seeing Elliot was starting to get the closure from Elliot bu then he seems to change his mind and realizes how much he had hurt Peggy.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I loved how Peggy was a determined to get revenge and I hated how she felt she wasn’t good enough. But this did pull me in right from the beginning and kept my interest until the end. This choked me up at times. This book was busy at times and sometimes it was hard to keep track of everything. I recommend reading the first book in the series before this one. There was definitely a very hot chemistry between Elliot and Peggy. This was like a roller coaster at times. This was very well written. This also had a very good plot. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

The Current Last in Series
Potions and Pastries (A Magical Bakery Mystery) - Bailey Cates

This is a series of Cozy Mysteries involving Katie Lightfoot, Declan McCarthy, Lucy and Ben (her aunt and uncle) and the members of the Spellbook Club. It is set in Savannah, GA and Katie with her aunt and uncle own a bakery that is very popular. 


Katie, Lucy, Ben and Declan have gone out to celebrate the 2nd year of business and as they are coming back from their meal they see Orla, a woman they know, telling tarot fortunes to the people on the walk. They are interested in the family dynamic in the Black Family. The next day, Katie and Lucy see Orla outside their shop and go out to talk with her. She says she doesn't have much time to talk, but she would meet with Katie that night, but instead, she walks in front of a car and is instantly killed. 


Katie and Lucy both feel that it wasn't an accident and they begin their own investigation. Even Declan says he doesn't believe it was an accident. As they go along many other things begin to happen and Katie also deals with her and Declan's engagement and search for a new house. 


I did enjoy this book and tried to read it every chance that I encountered. This is one series that I feel is best to read all the books in order, though.
