The Great Witches Baking Show

(Great Witches Baking Show #1)

by Nancy Warren 


Kindle Edition, 210 pages

Published January 15th 2020 by Ambleside Publishing




Synopsis: 

A baker with secrets

Witches in trouble

The cameras are rolling

Ready, set, die.


Poppy Wilkinson is thrilled to be chosen as a contestant on The Great British Baking Contest. As an American with English roots, winning the crown as Britain’s Best Baker would open doors she’s dreamed of. In more ways than one. Appearing on the reality show is her chance to get into Broomewode Hall and uncover the secrets of her past.


But strange things are happening on the show’s set: accusations of sabotage, a black cat that shadows Poppy, suspiciously unsociable residents at Broomewode Hall—and the judges can be real witches.


There are murmurs that Broomewode is an energy vortex. It certainly makes Poppy see and do things that aren’t exactly normal, and seems to draw interesting characters to the neighborhood.


When a fellow contestant dies in mysterious circumstances, Poppy has more to worry about than burned pies and cakes that won’t rise. There’s a murderer on the loose and it’s up to Poppy and her new friends to solve the crime before it becomes a real show-stopper.


From USA Today Bestselling Author Nancy Warren, this delicious series of cozy paranormal mysteries will have you guessing until the end. Includes recipes.

4.5 stars


This is the first book in the Great Witches Baking Show by Nancy Warren.


This was a light-hearted and fun read.


Poppy is just a normal gal. Okay, she does see the occasional ghost and has a penchant for cooking, but that's it. Or so she thought,


When she visits a manor home in England, she has an ulterior motive - she wants to find her birth family. Instead she meets a wonderful old woman who is more like a favorite auntie than a stranger, plus, she's a witch! And she tells Poppy she is a witch too!


This is like a witchy coming of age story with a dose of murder thrown in on the side. Poppy has managed to get herself on a popular cooking tv show called The Great British Baking Contest so she can stick around and ask questions about her long lost family.


This is a great beginning to a series that was a fun-loving romp and an unputdownable adventure. Definitely loved it.


Loved so much about it. If you like a magical cozy mystery, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
