About the Author

Lola Dodge Lola is a compulsive traveler, baker, and procrastinator. She earned her BA in English from Stonehill College and MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University—and hasn’t stopped moving since. When she’s not on the road, Lola spends her time indoors where the sunlight can’t melt her, writing or bingeing on K-dramas and cherry soda. She can be summoned in a ritual involving curry, Hello Kitty idols, and a solid chocolate pentagram.

Sugar Spells

The Spellwork Syndicate, Book Two

After her run-in with a jealous warlock, apprentice baker Anise Wise can’t wait to get back into 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 changed powers are stirring up trouble. The town’s abuzz with news that Anise can bake deathly spells, and unsavory characters start lining up for a taste. They’ll stop at nothing to use Anise and her witchcraft to further their own plots.

She plans to hole up researching solutions 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. Doing the right thing will mean risking death or worse—losing 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.”

Robin, Netgalley Reviewer

“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!”

Maria, NetGalley Reviewer

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