Easy bake coven.
Katie Lightfoot's tired of loafing around as the assistant manager of an Ohio bakery. So when her aunt Lucy and uncle Ben open a bakery in Savannah's quaint downtown district and ask Katie to join them, she enthusiastically agrees.

While working at the Honeybee Bakery-named after Lucy's cat-Katie notices that her aunt is adding mysterious herbs to her recipes. Turns out these herbal enhancements aren't just tasty-Aunt Lucy is a witch and her recipes are actually spells!

When a curmudgeonly customer is murdered outside the Honeybee Bakery, Uncle Ben becomes the prime suspect. With the help of handsome journalist Steve Dawes, charming firefighter Declan McCarthy, and a few spells, Katie and Aunt Lucy stir up some toil and trouble to clear Ben's name and find the real killer . . .

I like this series because although the witchcraft is there... the skepticism is high, which makes it more believable for me. The thought of spells crafted into bakery goods both makes my mouth water and makes me want to avoid all baked goods at the same time. Nice pacing, good plot, good twists. I will definitely read another book in the series.

This is a lovely, light new mystery series that combines baking, green witchery, and murder in an entertaining read.
