Melissa's Review:

Deadly Sweet is book 1 in The Spellwork Syndicate series. I've loved all the books I've tried from Lola Dodge so grabbing this one was a no brainer. This book seriously made me crave all the baked goods, so don't read this while hungry. I loved the magic aspects and cannot wait to see what the next book brings us!

Anise Wise is your every day college aged girl that happens to be a witch. Her and her mom are constantly on the move because she winds up using her magic and getting caught. It's no fun having an angry mob if you're caught so they haven't really settled down. After a stressful situation it happens again and Anise goes to live with her great aunt and starts working as her apprentice at her bakery. This is a perfect fit for Anise since that's her dream job and she's great at baking and enchanting those delicious baked goods. There's something sinister bubble over though, the last apprentice mysteriously disappeared and strange occurrences are starting to happen around our lovely witch. All signs are pointing to someone targeting Anise and she has to figure out who's behind it before it's too late.

Deadly Sweet is a great start to a new series. I really got sucked into the world and was on the edge of my seat when Anise was being targeted. I had a suspicion on the whodunit and was right, it was such an entertaining read. If you're a fan of New Adult books with paranormal mixed in I think you'll love this book!


  1. I haven't tried any of her books yet, but this one sounds good! Also, could I have a piece of that cool purple cake, please? :P

  2. I love magic stories, and my! That cover looks so good to eat <3

    1. Hehe I was craving sweets so bad while reading

  4. Sounds like a fun read. Although, tricky for me. I'd have to avoid it on my fasting days ;)

    1. For sure, you'd be craving all the sweets if not!

  5. I always adore books that has a witch in the lead. I also really like how the story seems to be new adult/mystery/paranormal. Always love mixed genres like that. And the thought of the baked goods alread makes me crave them. :P
