Imogen’s spent her twenties in Seattle, saving every penny and missing every party, to follow her dream of opening her own bakery.
When that dream goes up in flames, she accepts a spot in a mysterious baking contest—one she doesn’t remember entering. She travels to a bustling, medieval village off the coast of France and discovers an enchanting world of magic and mystery, and learns that she, too, possesses powers.
Unable to so much as cast a spell, Imogen struggles to keep up with the other witches and wizards who have come from all over the magical world to the Water Kingdom's big competition. She juggles relationships with a sweet new friend, a snarky baking fire, and a brooding, handsome baker. As Imogen falls for this bewitching world, she fears she won’t master her magic in time to win the job of Royal Head Baker, and will be forced to return to the shambles of her non magical life.
It only gets worse, when a competitor drops dead in the middle of the big white baking tent, and Imogen’s the prime suspect. Now, she’ll not only have to survive the vampire and psychic judges, but also clear her name by finding the real murderer, before they strike again.
With a killer on the loose, a missing prince, and the Summer Solstice Festival fast approaching, Imogen will have to bake like her life depends on it- because it just might.
Seashells, Spells & Caramels is the first book in a new paranormal cozy mystery series by Erin Johnson. I quickly found myself drawn into this magical tale. Imogen has been saving for years chasing her dream of opening her very own bakery. But when her dreams go up in smoke, she’s forced to reevaluate. She isn’t quite sure how she managed to enter a magical baking contest, but the ability to go to the contest presents itself at exactly the right time.
I totally loved this magical cozy mystery. I loved Imogen and Maple. Iggy was also an awesome character on his own. This was such a great story. I didn’t want to put it down. I loved the magical elements that made this story truly unique. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I am looking forward to seeing the characters develop. Imogen has a long way to go with her magic, and there are relationship possibilities that have me chomping at the bit to read the next book. 🙂
