The dead man's tattoo reveals he was a member of a secret society -- and it turns out he's missing an object that was very important to the group. When Katie learns the killer was after more than the man's life, she and her Aunt Lucy leave the baked goods on the rack to cool and set off in hot pursuit of a killer.« less
I thought book two was much better than book one. Much better detailed mystery and better use of magic in the book. Recipe for Coca Cola cake looks intriguing. Nice job with character development. All the baked goods sound yummy.
This takes place about 6 mo after the first book. Katie is settled in and is learning about the Craft. The bakery is doing well, and they had to hire another person to help- Cookie one of the coven members. The mystery starts right away with the discovery of a dead body while Katie is out on a picnic with Declan. Katie still has 2 guys (Declan and Steve) that are interested in her (and they hate each other).
Decent mystery. The love triangle appears to be resolved in this one (based on something Katie says at the end of this one). Steve's dad is an asshole. There is a new detective aware of the paranormal (Taite). We will see where Katie ends up next.
