Publisher's Summary

A cozy English village, a baking contest...and murder! 

I can remember a time when I baked for fun. I loved dreaming up new recipes, trying different combinations of flavors. Sharing my creations with friends and family.  

Now? I have nightmares where the TV cameras are on me and I’m baking naked. Or I open my oven and my cake pans are empty. You don’t need to be Freud to figure out I’m freaking out. This week on The Great British Baking Contest could be my last. I am one bad bake away from being waved good-bye. 

Sure, I’d get my weekends back, but I’d lose the excitement of being part of a popular reality show, of spending time with the other bakers who’ve become my friends, and, most important, of having time to snoop around Broomewode Hall for secrets about my origins. 

When a heated argument breaks out in Broomewode village pub, I put it down to nerves. Until someone winds up dead. 

How am I supposed to concentrate on European Bakes when I’m in the middle of a murder investigation? 

With witches, ghosts, an energy vortex, a black cat and an ancient manor house that holds its secrets tight, this isn't your typical English village. 

Taste this culinary cozy mystery series from USA Today best-selling author Nancy Warren. Each book is a stand-alone mystery, though the books are linked. They offer good, clean fun, and, naturally, recipes.

Bundt Cakes, Weddings and Murder!

This is another greatly entertaining book in the series. The main character, Poppy Wilkinson, is a contestant on The Great British Baking Show. In addition to her expertise as a baker, she is also a great amateur sleuth, which she discovered after finding a corpse during the first week of filming.

Now, she is afraid that she might be reaching the end of her time on the show after a disastrous week of baking, mostly due to finding yet another dead body. She is determined to stay on the show so that she can have more time to try to discover anything about her birth mother who seems to have connections to the venue of the show.

When Poppy is approached by a woman to bake a wedding cake for her best friend, Poppy knows that she needs to concentrate on the Show. However, she takes on the job, both to earn some extra money and gain more access to Broomwolde Hall and clues to her past.

Of course, our amateur detective becomes involved in yet another murder, but this time her fellow contestants pitch in to help solve the mystery. Add in the fact that Poppy has just discovered that she is a witch and she sees and talks to ghosts and you have the makings of a fun story.

If you enjoy watching baking shows, cozy mysteries involving likeable characters, a little magic and a few ghosts, you will enjoy this entertaining book. The narrator does a fantastic job and her pacing and character voices add a lot to an already great read. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author and chose to review it.

Love it love it love it

I really am enjoying watching Poppy evolve and come into her own not only as a baker, but as a witch, and a detective, As the series has gone on it’s fun to watch Poppy’s magic expand I hope the next book in the series it’s going to show even more of her abilities, as she gets closer to figuring out her parentage that she’ll find a love interest I know who I have in mind. .
I really like the way Nancy Warren Inc. expanded on all the bakers and Jerry, creating a kind of detective team, with just the right amount of friendship and involvement.
For anyone that enjoys paranormal cozy mystery is this series is a definite yes, it fulfills and more all the things that you would want in the genre
I am so excited for Blood sweat and tiers, book 5 hopefully to be released an audio soon.

Another lovely, enjoyable cozy mystery

I think this cozy witch mystery series is completely enjoyable, and each new novel adds a new enriching layer to the story. It is so fun to get lost in another week in Poppy's life as she completes in the next round of a famous British TV baking competition, searches for clues to her birth mother's identity, learns a little bit more about her own witchy talents, and solves a new murder. Poppy’s busy life, her scrumptious baking, and her cozy friends take me away from my life and put a smile on my face. The murder mystery in this one was really good, and it stumped me. There was a marvelous climax and fantastic tension.

As always, the narrator Hollis McCarthy gave an absolutely perfect performance. I love her alto voice and her wizardry with so many accents. She is marvelous at both male and female voices.

I heartily recommend this series in audiobook to everyone who likes cozy paranormal mysteries. Nancy Warren is such a talented writer and has the perfect narrator to perform her work. It is best to read the series in order.

I requested and received a free copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

ANOTHER WINNER!

NANCY WARREN JUST KEEPS ON HITTING THEM OUT OF THE PARK WITH HER WARM PARANORMAL COZY MYSTERIES. THIS 4TH OUTING IN THE GREAT WITCHES BAKING SHOW IS NO EXCEPTION (AND POPPY MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT GET A LITTLE CLOSER TO FINDING OUT ABOUT HER BIOLOGICAL PARENTS). IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THESE, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU START, AND GO AHEAD AND READ HER VAMPIRE KNITTING CLUB AND VAMPIRE BOOK CLUB. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.

Poppy's mysteries continue

Yet another brilliant baking mystery. This time with the backdrop of a wedding and Poppy enlisted to create a wedding cake when the unthinkable happens! I live ask of Nancy Warren's books and this is no different. This is well worth a listen!

My Favourite so far!

Well book 4 certainly did not disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyed getting to find out a little more of Poppy’s past. It’s like revisiting old friends. Well worth reading or listening to. I’m looking forward to the next instalment!
