She wants Katie to help find the gris-gris . When there is a connection between Dawn and murdered homicide detective, Frank. Frank's death is suspicious because he died while a voodoo ritual was preformed. Katie then asked her friend and fellow witch Cookie for help who has experience in the voodoo world and together they look for a voodoo queen that would be suitable to help them in their quest to find the lost gris-gris before evil befalls them all and to find a murderer before it's too late.
Lately I have been wanting to delve into mysteries that are out of my comfort zone. Mysteries with magical and mystical elements and themes are way out of my comfort zone because I have a hard time understanding the language and dislike fantasy and snakes, it makes me shutter just thinking about it. But I like these witches and the bakery theme had me wanting to read Magic and Macaroons just to discover what magical treats these witches would whip up.
Katie and Cookie made a great team and they definitely put me under their spell. This series is in great company with and reminds me so much of Ellery Adams Magical Pie Shop Mysteries and Heather Blake's Wishcraft Mysteries, If you love magical mysteries I highly recommend. A complex and multi layered mystery with magical treats that i'm a big fan of and so will you.
