Tasty, feminist, fantasy mystery. Just as with the first, I was completely sucked in as soon as I started reading. The vigilante theme surrounding abusive men pushes it out of the 'cozy' mystery slot, but there is still so much wholesomeness and compassion to enjoy. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? I was really concerned the reality tv/cooking challenge show angle for this book in the series would have me disliking it, but it ended up being a fun element and a way to meet new characters.
I love the candidates who are supportive of each other, and how Daisy checks in with everybody regardless of whether they've behaved well.

Robotswithpersonality 3/4 I was struck by how the author uses the protagonist POV to express appreciation for the skill and artistry involved in all kinds of different baking (not just Pie Girl's pies).
I think the mystery and magic in this series comes secondary to the interpersonal, encompassing both drama and character development, but it has a lightness to it that stops the messaging from being heavy-handed.
Eagerly awaiting my library's acquisition of the third in the series, out this year!

Robotswithpersonality 4/4 ⚠️Abuse, sexual harrassment, allusion to SA, discussion of assisted suicide

This would be so easy to make vegan, too. 🥧

DNF at 15%. Not grabbing me, and also the present tense narration doesn't help!
