Hey All, kicking off the first day of our 28 days of reviews is Easy Bake Coven by Liz Schulte.
When looking at this cover you would expect this book to be super light hearted, just a good fast read.  It starts that way, but then the author goes and turns it into a much darker and serious book.  Not that I don’t like the change, but when I initially opened the book I was kinda hoping for that fast, light book.

 

 ~~~Andi’s Review~~~

Liz Shulte in her book Easy Bake Coven starts has a light hearted frilly book about a witch who pretends not to be a witch, her friends who are part of her coven, as well as a couple of guys.  The main character is not only a witch but also the owner of a yoga studio as well as a girlfriend of a nearby establishment’s owner.  Life is looking good for  Selene until she is at dinner with her boyfriend when a call comes in that changes not only her life, but the life of two different kingdoms.

 

So there was this shift that occurred about 1/4th of the way through from this light hearted book to having to safe the world, not only that but the world(s) rely on two elves and a halfie with her coven.  It got a little weird right around then, but then it really got good.  The ending made me want to scream, to be honest I was a little pissed off how it ended.  I get cliffhangers but this book took it to a whole other level and not specifically in a good way.

 

Plot wise, it is a good solid book, some good quips that I enjoyed and overall really good conversations between the characters.  Grammar wise there are almost no issues and those that are present are nothing to be upset about.  I liked almost everything about it, other than the ending.  I am sure that the author finished up the story line or is finishing up the story line as there are many books following this one in the series.   I am personally looking forward to reading the rest of the series and see where the author goes with the story line.

About Liz Schulte

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

When Liz isn't writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between
