The Honeybee Bakery is named after Honeybee the Cat
The second Magical Bakery Mystery, Bewitched, Bothered and Biscotti, is officially releasing tomorrow. It’s the story of how Declan and I found a dead body in Johnson Square and the tattoo that led the spellbook club to an ages old secret society and ultimately to a murderer who was after more than a man’s life.
Here’s what Kirkus Reviews said about the book – and my author, Bailey:
“Cates is a smooth, accomplished writer who combines a compelling plot with a cast of interesting characters that are diverse and engaging without falling into simplistic stereotypes…Overall a light, clever and engaging read. Cates’ second Magical Bakery mystery is a charming addition to the food-based cozy mystery repertoire, while the story’s magical elements bring a fun, intriguing dimension to the genre.”
Now, how nice is that? Thanks, Kirkus!
I also wanted to let you know that Honeybee the Cat is over at Killer Characters today talking about what it’s like to be a witch’s familiar. It would have been nice if Mungo had volunteered since I’d love to know what that little dickens is thinking sometimes. Most of the time I can figure it out, though. He’s not exactly subtle. Ha!
