A Dash of Magic: A Bliss Novel by Kathryn Littlewood

Here's a quirky little tale filled with magic, fun, and family that middle graders will love to read.  I had a great time reading it, too!

Katherine Tegin Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this story in ebook form (thank you).  It was published January 23rd, so you can grab a copy now.

Rosemary Bliss HAS to get the family cookbook back from her evil Aunt Lily.  Lily is using it for fame and fortune, and the Bliss family used it to keep their home town happy and healthy.  It's real gray at home, both weather-wise and attitude-wise, so they need to get the book back.

Stealing it isn't an option (even if that's how Lily acquired it), so Rosemary challenges her to a baking contest.  The problem is that she doesn't have the family recipes anymore and her aunt will probably beat her.  The winner of the contest will get to keep the book.  Can Rosemary hope to win?  With a little help from her family and friends, Rosemary gives it her all...

Some of the ingredients are crazy and how they acquire them is crazy, too.  It makes for a fun read.

Happy reading.
