A Taste Of Magic (Magic #1) by Tracy Madison

Goodreads Summary:

Today is Elizabeth Stevens’ birthday, and not only is it the one-year anniversary of her husband leaving her, it’s also the day her bakery is required to make a cake—for her ex’s next wedding. If there’s a bitter taste in her mouth, no one can blame her.

But today, Liz is about to receive a gift. Her Grandma Verda isn’t just wacky; she’s a little witchy. An ancient gypsy magic has been passed through her family bloodline for generations, and it’s Liz’s turn to be empowered. Henceforth, everything she bakes will have a dash of delight and a pinch of wishes-can-come-true. From her hunky policeman neighbor, to her gorgeous personal trainer, to her bum of an ex-husband, everyone Liz knows is going to taste her power. Revenge is sweet…and it’s only the first dish to be served.

My Review:

This is the first book of four in the Magic Series. It was a fun read that had me giggling here and there. Liz 'inherits' her family's gypsy magic on her birthday and through some rough trial and error she learns a lot about her family's heritage and even more about herself. Liz can be a bit clueless at times but overall I love the mixture of baking, magic, and romance; it's the perfect recipe for a good book! I will be adding the next three in the series to my 'to-read' list!


  1. HEY! I added this series to my wish list for my nook a few weeks ago! That is so funny. Well I am glad it was worth the add.

  3. @ Wall-to-wall - I'm really into light romances with a twist of paranormal lately and this one definitely fits! I'm sure you won't regret adding it to your wishlist :-)

  4. Oh my gosh Jen, I just saw that you won a book on goodreads!!! - Before Ever After by Samantha Sotto
    I was trying to win that book! Congrats!

  5. Thanks! I was just sorting through a backlog of GR update emails and then that one popped up...it took a minute for it to sink in what the email was saying, lol. I'm looking forward to reading it!

  6. I read this book and loved it, I can't wait to read the rest of the series.

  7. I'm right there with you Linda! I have this one as an ebook, but I'm tempted to get the whole series as paper books!


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
