The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice
The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice | Donna Kauffman, Allyson Charles, Kate Angell
12 posts | 4 read | 9 to read
Every autumn, Moonbright, Maine, is the picture of charm with its piles of crisp leaves, flickering jack-o'-lanterns ... and a touch of the sweetest kind of enchantment. Witches, goblins, the occasional ghost--they're all sure to be spotted at the annual Halloween parade, where adults and children alike dress in costume to celebrate Moonbright's favorite holiday. And no place has more seasonal spirit than Bellaluna's Bakeshop, a family business steeped in traditional recipes, welcoming warmth--and, legend has it, truly spellbinding, heart-melting treats ... Between good-natured Halloween tricks, frothy pumpkin lattes, and some very special baked goods, for three Moonbright residents looking for love--whether they know it or not--the spookiest thing will be how magical romance can suddenly be ... PRAISE FOR THE COTTAGE ON PUMPKIN AND VINE "This wonderful, well-written collection calls to mind brisk autumn nights cuddled with a loved one." --Publishers Weekly "This diverse trio of stories bring three couples to love with a charming, slightly sexy Halloween flair ... Sassy, funny, and dusted with magic." --Library Journal "Delightful and spicy. . . . With humor and a little mysticism thrown in, each story winds its way to a happy ever after. Every pairing comes to fruition in a unique way." --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars Includes cookie recipes!

Mehso-so

The premise is cute, but this collection of three novellas by different authors was uneven and completely unbelievable. Magic cookies work love spells in almost laughable ways. It‘s light and an easy read-perfect waiting room and airplane fare for me. But I wouldn‘t go out of my way for this one.

This was supposed to be a calm, relaxing day. It was anything but. 😬 However, I did finish this book tonight!

Purely a #coverlust read. I did not realize it was 3 short stories, heavy on the romance and light on quality.

Sweet Magic: The bakery setting and family dynamics were nice.

Love Spells Disaster: Awful and boring.

Sweet on You: The old lady was funny. That‘s it.

Having an early dinner before going to see Peter Pan! Because Maya is in the school of theater training, we get to go for a backstage tour ahead of the show. She‘ll be auditioning next spring for both The Sound of Music and Hairspray, Jr!

I didn‘t realize this was a book of 3 short stories. Just finished the first story, which was just okay. But very full of Halloween fun, set in a small town in Maine.

So what if it‘s 90 degrees outside? It‘s October, and this book from @BlameJennyJane from the wonderful #cozyswap box she sent is perfect for the season. It looks like so much fun, so it‘s #nextup. Only problem is the cover, which is making my salivate. I will try not to slobber all over it 😂

BlameJennyJane Have fun with it! 🍁🍁🍁 2mo

Horrible. Unless you like cheesy bodice-rippers. 🤢 Thought it was a cozy novel set in a bakery. Actually three short stories.
