Charms and Chocolate Chips – Bailey Cates

Having skipped book 2 (because my library didn’t have it) I jumped right into book 3 and loved this one as well. There were obviously some details in the first couple of chapters referencing things that happened in book 2, but it didn’t make the book difficult to read. Which is one of my favorite thing about cozy mysteries!

Katie Lightfoot is still working with her Aunt and Uncle at Honeybee’s Bakery, dating Declan, and now volunteering at a wildlife foundation. It is this foundation where a friend is found murdered, and the threat now seems to be on Katie. An area of swampland is of interest to a few different individuals, and the foundation is trying to protect it, and the wildlife that lives there.

A surprise visit from Katie’s mother also lets us see that relationship mend, as well as the relationship between her Mom and her Aunt.

We learn a bit more about magic in this story, and Katie is much more comfortable with who she truly is. She is beginning to realize how powerful she really is, and her friends and family are realizing it as well.

And I am on to book 4! Also going to the library today to see what other books I can pick up 😊 What are your favorite cozy mysteries?

    My OCD cannot handle the idea of reading a series out of order!! I practically can’t read books in separate series but in the same world out of order. 🙂

      🙂 I was desperate for new cozies! I have no intention of going back to read the 2nd book, I got enough information about what happened in it in the first couple of chapters of book 3. I do understand where you are coming from though!

    The one thing that makes me laugh about cozy mystery series’ are they always have one main character, who usually lives in a small town, and they always have people dying around them! How can one person keep stumbling into dead bodies?! There’s just something wrong there! 😉😂 I still love them anyways! 💖💖🍻

      Me too! It’s easy to overlook the ratio of citizens to dead bodies when the story is good 🙂

    I applaud you for reading out of order. I too wouldn’t be able to do that, thanks to the OCD. I’ll look out for the series, though. Thanks. 🙂
