Book Synopsis:

Jade has lived a normal, okay maybe not normal, but good life building a career as a bakery owner where she crafts delicious, sinfully named cupcakes. She even had a hobby of creating trinkets made from magical items she collected. The fact that she's half-witch and unable to do any real spells on her own hasn't really bothered her in the past. When vampires and werewolves come calling though, Jade soon finds that there may be more to her background than once believed. Though being told she smells like Chinese food from a werewolf alpha is downright insulting, even if it his way of telling her she's not half-human.

When dead werewolves start showing up around the city, Jade is accused of murder, but quickly dismissed as the suspect. However, that doesn't release her from the case. Her abilities prove quite useful to the alpha werewolf and vampire who are hunting down the true killer. But, can she handle the truth of who may be meddling with dark magic and using her trinkets in the process?


Awesome, awesome, awesome book. There was so much I loved about this book. Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge is extremely well-done. The characters are believable, the storyline is well-developed, and it's sexy as hell without there being even one sex scene. I loved that each character had a distinctly human quality, even though there wasn't any humans in the mix. Jade relies on her "knowledge" of paranormal creatures throughout the series, though is often wrong. Kett, a vampire, can laugh with the best of them, but mostly at Jade's expense. And, Desmond, well he's smug enough to pass as any ego-inflated, human male. The characters blend together beautifully to create an urban fantasy/mystery that is impossible to put down. I highly, highly recommend this book.
