Publisher Description

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.

Cupcakes, Trinkets and other Deadly magic

Cupcakes, Trinkets and other Deadly magic 7.5/10
Free iBook. Good book, great writing style, interesting story, although I do get infuriated reading about stupid heroines who make bad choices, put themselves in danger, don’t see the obvious, and don’t ask intelligent questions. I prefer smart heroines, like the other Amplifier series.
Anyway, Jade is a young half/witch, half-human who has a cupcake bakery in Vancouver, and doesn’t pay much attention to magic. Were-wolves are being murdered, and Jane is pulled into the inquiry by a vampire and the werewolf pack since her trinkets are at the scene of the murders. It seems she isn’t half-human...but no one seems to be able to tell what she is.

Excellent read.

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...
