Hedge Witches Lonely Hearts Club: Book One
When a coven of hedge witches casts a spell for their hearts’ desires, the world turns upside down.
Bartholomew Baker is afraid to hope for his heart’s true desire—the gregarious woodworker who sells his wares next to Bartholomew at the local craft fairs—so he writes the spell for his baking business to thrive and allow him to quit his office job. He’d rather pour his energy into emotionally gratifying pastry! But the magic won’t allow him to lie, even to himself, and the spellcasting has unexpected consequences.
For two years Lachlan has been flirting with Bartholomew, but the shy baker with the beautiful gray eyes runs away whenever their conversation turns personal. He’s about to give up hope… and then Bartholomew rushes into a convention in the midst of a spellcasting disaster of epic proportions.
Suddenly everybody wants a taste of Bartholomew’s baked goods—and Bartholomew himself. Lachlan gladly jumps on for the ride, enduring rioting crowds and supernatural birds for a chance with Bartholomew. Can Bartholomew overcome the shyness that has kept him from giving his heart to Lachlan?
Bartholomew and Lachlan are just delectable! A dash of paranormal and a whole bushel of sweet, Shortbread and Shadows is just perfect from start to finish. I can’t wait to see what Tolly’s friends wished for! I gobbled this story down just as fast as I could, and it’s a great read if you need a lighthearted happily ever after in these troubling times!
Love and Magic the perfect combination
Shortbread and Shadows by Amy Lane was given to me in exchange for an honest review. Bartholomew Baker, hedge witch and baker, didn't realize that half truths and lies would make his world implode in a weird and unexpected way. Lachlan Stephens, woodworker and crushing on Bartholomew, saw Batholomew needed him and dove right into keeping his Tolly and his coven safe. I really had fun with this book. It was lovely, and heartwarming to see two people, one shy and other bold but cautious, fall for each other despite the magical mishap. True love can conquer even magic.
