Additional Information

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.
This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

I read a lot of Urban Fantasy, so it is both easy (and a bit misleading) to say that "Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic" has familiar elements to it. UF Recipe: Seemingly-autonomous, young, heroine?-check. Magic whose limits have yet to be fully tested?-check. Scary/sexy supernaturals?-check. Dead bodies and an investigation that entraps said heroine?-check.

But Doidge takes these ingredients and mixes up a winning combination. While I had moments of frustration with Jade, our heroine, I also came to like her. I don't want to spoil anything, but she means what she says in the opening sentences. She does like her uneventful life, she wants it to stay that way, and her reluctance is a characteristic that causes her to make particular decisions. Jade is closest to Sookie Stackhouse's initial innocence on the scale of kick-butt UF heroines. Jade is open-hearted towards friends and family, and firmly wants to be Good. Of course, her experiences in this book may have... Read more
I can't even tell you the cliff hanger on this book!!!! UGHHHH!!

I don't honestly remember where I got this book, but I am glad that I finally got the chance to read it! So, I know this week I will be going to amazon and buying the second book :)

This book was a little hard to follow at first, but if you stick with it, it really turns itself around.

Jade is a baker. She owns her own cupcake bakery. She is known for her racy named cupcakes :) She is also a witch. Well, half witch/ half something else that no one knows about. She has wards on her bakery that only humans can enter and if you are not human you have to be invited in. Jade has a gift to find other magic. She has a half sister sirenna who is also a half witch. her grandmother is the head witch and is a very important person in Vancouver.

Jade is being stocked by a vampire. Humans cannot see them, so she was wondering why it was hanging out around her bakery. She also lives upstairs... Read more
First off, if this author doesn’t come out with a companion baking guide I am going to be doing a whole lot of drooling for nothing. Our faithful protagonist, Jade, is a pretty, yoga-practicing baker with a hobby of creating magical trinkets that turn out to be worth more than a spot on a Pinterest board. Her cupcakes are described so vividly that I swear I gained a pound after reading this book. I also gained an affection for our heroine, who despite being young and beautiful never became annoying.

Jade is actually pretty happy with her life, running her very successful business and dabbling in her limited magic. Then a vampire and a pack of werewolves show up, determined to find out how Jade is connected to a series of murders involving black magic. Despite her protestations of innocence, Jade finds herself caught up in the mystery, and in the process finds out that her own past isn’t what she’s been led to believe.

I very much enjoyed this... Read more
