Waiting on Wednesday #126

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Cassie's Waiting On: 

Deadly Sweet (The Spellwork Syndicate #1) by Lola Dodge
Deadly Sweet (The Spellwork Syndicate, #1)Publication Date: January 16th, 2018


Anise Wise loves three things: baking, potion making, and reading her spell books in blissful silence. She might not be the most powerful witch in the suburbs, but enchantment is a rare skill, and her ability to bake with magic is even rarer. Unfortunately, witches have a bad rep, and Anise’s dream of attending pastry school crumbles with each rejection letter.

Then her great aunt Agatha pops out of the woodwork with a sweet offer. If she signs on as Agatha’s apprentice, Anise can have all the training and ingredients she’s ever imagined, and she’ll inherit the family bakery.

The catch? Studying with Agatha means moving to Sedona—a dangerous otherworldly power center where her aunt is a key player in the magical community’s shady dealings. And the last apprentice? Assassinated.

Now Anise is next on the hit list. If she can’t find and stop whoever wants her dead, she’ll be more toasted than a crème brulee.

Who knew baking cakes could be so life or death?

This book sounds like the perfect mix of Hex Hall and Practical Magic, which means it's right up my alley.  Plus, it has baking in it?! Ummmm...I sold!! This book has pretty much everything I could want in a book.  Deadly Sweet sounds like so much fun, and I honestly can't wait to dig into this book ;)
