A Cindy Eller Short story.

Cindy Eller is a witch and a baker. She is making a name for herself in the world of desserts with her new and unique flavor profiles.

But juggling her weird family and trying to keep her magic a secret from her roommates is a daily challenge.

And her twin sisters, Starrie and Rainey Skye won't hesitate to bring the trouble right to her door.

Cindy may not be gifted with lots of magic but she is talented when it comes to baking with her magic. When her younger twin sisters show up at her door with a border collie that they say is their step-father she knows she’s got a big mess to fix. After trying everything to turn him back she’s forced to head to work to think over the problem. However as soon as she starts baking she’s lost in her brownie recipe and forgets her problems at home. Will she be able to fix the spell the twins created? Will she get the brownie recipe just right? Will she be able to keep her magic away from her roommates?

I like Cindy a lot she’s a witch who uses her magic to bake what’s not to love. While it’s a short story we are only given a peek into Cindy’s world it’s just enough to have me curious to check out the series. I’m curious to see how the series will go plus she’s got some great friends and I see more trouble from the twins.

How (Not) to Play With Magic is a short story with just enough action to keep you interested and wanting more. I like the concept a lot of a witch who uses her magic to bake it’s very interesting. I admit I kind of want to make brownies now after reading about Cindy’s that she created. I love the authors writing style it flows smoothly and it’s beautifully done. The author has created a perfect short story that captures the imagination and leaves the reader wanting more. I can’t wait to dive into the first Cindy Eller story it’s already on my kindle impatiently waiting.
