Synopsis: Rose won back her family’s magical Cookery Booke in an international baking competition in A Dash of Magic, the second novel in the series. Rose is now world famous—so famous, in fact, that Mr. Butter, head of the Mostess Corporation, has kidnapped her so that she can develop new-and-improved magical recipes for his company’s snack cakes. With the magically enhanced Dinkies and Moony Pies, Mr. Butter plans to take over the world.
Together with her brothers, their talking cat and mouse, and an unlikely team of bakers, Rose must overthrow Mr. Butter before he destroys civilization, one magically evil snack cake at a time. (Taken from Goodreads.)
Bite-Sized Magic by Kathryn Littlewood was one thing—ridiculous. The storyline sounded good: Rosemary Bliss, now a famous baker who uses her family’s magic book to create magical treats, is kidnapped and forced to use magic to create evil treats for the wicked Mr. Butter.
The story didn’t live up to my expectations at all. It was unrealistic, pathetic, and unrealistic. I couldn’t connect with any of the characters. However, the lack of good story left me laughing and wishing for more. So if nothing else, I got a great laugh out of this one! To prove my point: On page 79, Rose has just been kidnapped and is being held hostage. Instead of worrying about escape, she’s worrying about something more important—“ ‘Oh no,’ Rose moaned, staring at her clothes. ‘I don’t have any pajamas.’ ”
It was more of a story than an actual book. The story was awful, the characters were unrelatable, and the plot made no sense, so I found it hilarious. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good laugh.
I have no idea how to rate a book that I found so bad it was funny, and thereof a book I enjoyed.
