~ Under the Covers
Although this is the eighth book in the Magical Bakery Mystery series by Bailey Cates, this is the first book I’ve read by this author. I was very intrigued by the concept of this series and I have to admit, the cover played a huge part in why I wanted to try this series out. But also, this is the first time I’ve tried reading a Paranormal Cozy Mystery. I’ve read quite a lot of other cozies but they are usually Contemporaries so I was very eager to try this one.
To be honest, I was a little surprised with this book. I really liked the bakery concept but it was the paranormal side that kind of threw me off in the beginning. Now I’m no stranger to paranormal reads. In fact, I really became obsessed with reading because of Paranormal Romance. However, I’ve never read a book that tackles the paranormal quite like one. I don’t know if it’s because it’s a different genre and they handle things different here but I wasn’t sure I was into it at first. For example, Declan, one of the big characters in the series, has a leprechaun inside of him. I guess it was just a little difficult for me to wrap my head around. Maybe I’m just not used to this kind of paranormal.
Anyway, I did eventually get over it. I enjoyed the book but perhaps I had really high expectations. I do plan on going back to read the other books in the series. But I look forward to trying out other Paranormal Cozy Mysteries to see if I’ll enjoy those ones too.
COOKIES AND CLAIRVOYANCE is a nice introduction to the Paranormal Cozy Mystery genre and I look forward to reading more from Bailey Cates in the future.
