A Taste of Magic by Tracy Madison is the first book in the new “Magic” paranormal romantic series. Publisher: Love Spell (Dorchester Publishing), February 2009.
A young, divorced bakery owner discovers she’s inherited her gypsy ancestress’s fabulous magical powers, but learns that when seeking true love with a hunky new neighbor, a person has to be careful what she cooks up.
This is about Elizabeth Stevens, owners of A Taste of Magic bakery, who on her thirty-fifth birthday is presented with a gift by her grandmother Verda that has been passed down through the generations. Elizabeth doesn’t know she has this gift until a wish of hers come true after baking a cake for her ex-husband’s upcoming wedding. After several wishes, her grandmother tells her that their bloodline is from a gypsy and Elizabeth embraces her magical power. Elizabeth learns to cope with her new-found powers and begins to live her life instead of living in the past. This was an entertaining and enjoyable story. I love the characters and can’t wait to meet them again in the next story. [4 stars – really liked it]
