The Heat Is On

Rosemary Bliss will do anything to get back her family's magical Cookery Booke.

That's why she challenges Aunt Lily to an international baking competition in Paris: If Rose wins, Lily agrees to return the Cookery Booke that she stole. If Rose loses . . . well, the consequences are too ugly to think about.

But Lily isn't playing fair—she's using a magical ingredient to cheat. The only way for Rose to compete is for her to find magical ingredients of her own.

Together with her long-lost grandpa, his sarcastic talking cat, and a turncoat French mouse, Rose and her brothers race around Paris to find essential—and elusive—magical ingredients that will help her outbake—and outmagic—her conniving aunt.

She has to win or the Bliss Cookery Booke will be lost to her family forever.

This second helping in Kathryn Littlewood's Bliss series combines hilarious magic and daring adventure to make one delectable reading treat.
