The Spellwork Syndicate, Book Two
After her run-in with a jealous warlock, apprentice baker Anise Wise can’t wait to get back the kitchen where she belongs. But thanks to her brush with death, the land of the living isn’t all cupcakes and marshmallows.
Anise’s magical mojo is way out of whack and her evolving powers are stirring up trouble. As the town buzzes with news that Anise can bake deathly spells, unsavory characters start lining up for a taste. They’ll stop at nothing for the chance to use Anise and her witchcraft to further their own plots.
She plans to hole up researching magic recipes until the attention dies down, but then she discovers the horrifying terms of her bodyguard’s contract. Wynn has saved her life so many times, she can’t leave him trapped. But doing the right thing will mean risking death or worse—being cast out of her dream job.
For this witch, justice might not be as sweet as advertised.
“Anise and Wynn are my favorite duo of this year. Between Anise’s witty and sarcastic attitude and Wynn’s stoic facade they are a laughable pair but they always make you want to read more and see what they get into next.”

“Like the first book in the series, “Sugar Spells” is uncomplicated enjoyment. What you see is what you get. It’s cozy fantasy at it’s best, filled with charming asides – just the way I like it!”

“This is a delicious mixture of sweet magic, some dark creatures, and spicy adventure.”

“I am so glad to have discovered this series. I absolutely love these characters and am so glad to have gotten to read about them in two novels and will continue to follow them through the rest of the series. This world is so unique and the plot was amazing. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series and hopefully read other books by Lola Dodge.”
