If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.
This 68,000 word urban fantasy is the first book of the Dowser Series by author Meghan Ciana Doidge.

I love the tone of the book. Well written with a good mix of ligh hearted self depreciation by an awesome lead character. I wish I was half as cool as Jade.
Fun and modern supernatural series
I downloaded this book on a whim, I don't normally go for books that look like this but it turned out to be a fun, entertaining, modern read.
A little bit True Blood and a little bit Charmed, I liked the main character Jade much more than I anticipated. In fact, she's infinitely cooler than Sookie Stackhouse.
It's a lighthearted read and keeps you turning the pages. The characters are traditional (werewolves, vampires, witches) but still interesting, especially with the witchy storyline. I have a strong suspicion we'll see this series optioned for the screen sometime soon...
Cupcakes, Trinkets... Book 1.
An exciting read. Nicely paced with interesting characters. Definitely worth reading.
