    This is a Paranormal Cozy Mystery, and this is the 4rd book in A Magical Bakery Mystery series. I have read some of the other books in this series. The main character in this series is Katie who is a witch. In this book there is not a lot of her coven or the Spellbook Club and not a ton of the bakery either. My favorite part of this series is those two things, and that is why I enjoyed this book the less so far. The ending was good, but I found the beginning and middle just ok or maybe a little This is a Paranormal Cozy Mystery, and this is the 4rd book in A Magical Bakery Mystery series.

I do not like reading books that has TV/Movie filming, and this book as lot of that as well. The other three books I read so far in this series I really enjoyed, so I will keep going will the series.

    Audiobook-Wonderful narration There are some major game changers happening in this edition to the series. The chess pieces are moving and it's getting very interesting. One character gets a huge awakening and doesn't like it very much. The eclairs are so mouth watering delicious sounding I was drooling all over my book. The bad news no eclair recipes :( There are recipes but not what I wanted. That is my only complaint, well and the fact that this bakery in not in my town.

    .. Some Enchanted Éclair is the fourth book in Bailey Cates' Magical Bakery Mystery series by Bailey Cates. Welcome to the life of Katie Lightfoot, master baker at the Honeybee Coffee Shop and part-time murder sleuth.

Welcome to the life of Katie Lightfoot, master baker at the Honeybee Coffee Shop and part-time murder sleuth. By happenstance, she and her boyfriend, Declan, appeared at the scene soon after the scream had been emitted. She recognized the knife from her bakery before identifying the man lying on the ground. When Hollywood invades Savannah’s historic district to film a Revolutionary War movie, magical baker Katie Lightfoot, and her witches’ coven, the Spellbook Club, take a break from casting spells for casting calls. One of the witches snags a part as an extra, while Katie’s firefighter boyfriend, Declan, acts as on-set security. Katie and her aunt Lucy decide to stay out of the action, but after the movie’s “fixer” fires the caterer, the Honeybee Bakery comes to the rescue, working their magic to keep the hungry crew happy. She and the local homicide detective are disturbed by the fact that she stumbles upon murder victims on a regular basis. This cozy paranormal series provides light and quick reads without much depth in characters or plotlines. Kate's aunt, along with the rest of her book club is helpful in many ways after she stumbles over another dead body. The magic in this story is another added layer that was somewhat unique, yet entertaining never the less. But when someone fixes the fixer—permanently—and a spooky psychic predicts Katie will find the killer, the charming baker, and her fellow conjurers step in to sift through the suspects…before someone else winds up on the cutting room floor…. I had high hopes for this series being interwoven with the craft. However, after four books, I''m disappointed by the bogging down of the craft due to the intricate descriptions of the outfits each person is donning, the individual ingredients in the food, and the murder mysteries that deflect from her magical advancement. Each installment is able to stand on its own. However, you will be introduced to the characters that remain from book to book and experience the development of the story much more clearly if you read the entire series in order. ..

    Guys, I think I've had it with this series. What once started out as a fun and fluffy cozy mystery has lost its initial direction. The fact that now both of Katie's love interests now have supernatural gifts sticks in my craw because 1. I hate love triangles and 2. Declan the muggle firefighter isn't just a medium now--he's a medium for his leprechaun long lost family member. It's just taking too much of an Urban Fantasy direction and I didn't sign up for this. The narrative itself is good, and y Guys, I think I've had it with this series. What once started out as a fun and fluffy cozy mystery has lost its initial direction.

The narrative itself is good, and you really want to slap some characters because you are supposed to feel frustrated with them. But there have been too many editing mistakes such as the overuse of the word, "gloaming" in the last book and strange hanging " that don't connect to anything at the ends of paragraphs. So, I just don't think it's going to work out with this series. Recipes included with this book: Fast and easy gluten-free peanut butter cookies Carrot 'n' apple cake (or muffins) w/ cream cheese frosting

    The problem with this series is that it just makes me SO hungry! Now I want to head to Savannah, go to the Honey Bee bakery, and have a sweet potato filled eclair topped off with maple frosting and a touch of magic🤤 This is the fourth book in the series, and I’m glad it headed back into a more cozy mystery direction.... Katie once again finds herself running into a dead body, it would really be a bummer to be a catalyst witch.... once again the best part of the book was this fabulous coven of wit The problem with this series is that it just makes me SO hungry!

I just love how well developed all of them are, and I adore the interactions they have with each other, you just get the feeling that they are just so there for each other! Always appreciate strong female friendships in books and in life.... again the only problem I have with this series is the love triangle, however it was slightly diluted this time.... and there was a big twist with one of the love interests; but I’m not sure how I feel about this, I still feel as though she is not following her heart.... this book ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, so hoping to pick up the next book sooner than later.... narration:Amy Rubinate really is such a fabulous narrator, I could listen to her voice all day long, brings such fabulous texture to the listening experience!💚

    Fun entry into the series, not as enjoyable as the last two but still highly readable. (view spoiler)[ It seems kinda weird that "Dec" is a leprechaun?

    Not the best in the series, but still a good, entertaining read.

    The friendly chime of the bell over the entrance to the Honeybee Bakery sent a shot of adrenaline through my veins. Another visit to the Honeybee Bakery in Savannah, Georgia finds Katie and Aunt Lucy manning the bakery on their own.

Another visit to the Honeybee Bakery in Savannah, Georgia finds Katie and Aunt Lucy manning the bakery on their own. Uncle Ben along with Declan are working security for a film company shooting a movie in the town. Mimsey, the local florist, introduces Simon Knapp as the production coordinator of the film. He has fired the contracted caterer and is in need of lunch for the crew. Katie and Lucy manage to toss together an amazing meal in a very short period of time and deliver it to the site. Katie becomes a part of the investigation when Simon is murdered and the star's resident psychic predicts that Katie will solve the crime. This is such an enjoyable series. I really appreciate how Katie has grown as a character since the first book. I'm glad she has made her choice in Declan for a long term relationship. I like the little things that Katie and Lucy do to make their pastries extra special with certain charmed additives. The movie set offered a variety of interesting people from the diva star to the nervous assistant production manager. It seems that everyone has a secret. Ursula, the psychic, adds an intriguing aspect to the investigation. She is also instrumental in exposing a hidden talent in Declan that the reader was not expecting. I understand that some people are really confused and irritated by this development for Declan. Perhaps because I read a lot of UF/ PNR that I was not offended or appalled. I'm interested to see where this talent will lead. Family secrets, hidden identities, questionable potions and sorcery create the background for an excellent book. I look forward to the next book to catch up with the bakery and the spellbook club.

    After reading this book, I understand where the mixed reviews are coming from.

Defintiley didn't see that one coming, but the author tied it in well by making the point that once you start believing in magic, just where do you draw the line on those beliefs. I really love the main character, Katie, and the reaccuring cast of quirky characters. The setting it quite cute too. I would love to visit the Honeybee Bakery and see what charmed treat the ladies would suggest for me.

This particular installment in the Magical Bakery Mysteries finds Katie suddenly contracted to cater for the movie crew that is filming in Savannah. While she's not exactly happy about it, Lucy is and so they work to create magic in the kitchen as usual. Of course a murder happens that has to do with someone in the crew for the movie, and Katie is right in the middle of it as she works to find out who killed Simon. I am not so fond of her and Declan being a couple, I just don't think they really mesh together. However, I do think she and Detective Quinn should be together, or at least partners when it comes to solving cases. There is a seance scene that actually had me tear up a bit as there was someone who came forward that was an unexpected spirit. On to the next in this entertaining series.

    Honestly, I wouldn’t be the first person to just recommend this series. But for what it’s worth (despite my consistent lower ratings), I am enjoying these. Think a light fluffy version of Nancy Drew meets a Hallmark movie.

    We declared the vanilla-filled, chocolate-topped éclairs the daily special, dubbing them “Black and Tans” and placing them front and center in the display case with tasty little samples by the register. When Mrs. Standish stopped by for her late-morning sugar fix, she took one bite and ordered half a dozen in a bag. Lucy complied with a knowing grin and a glint in her eye.

    SOME ENCHANTED ECLAIR is my favorite so far in the Magical Bakery Mystery series. Baker and witch Katie Lightfoot gets wrapped up in another murder mystery, this time on the set of a Revolutionary War movie being filmed in Savannah. The murder victim was a “fixer,” as in he was in charge of fixing personal and professional problems for the cast and crew, which means he had some interesting connections, and knew a lot of dirt on a lot of people.

This was a puzzling mystery with just the right amount of paranormal intrigue. Katie learns a little more about her powers and why she seems to be a magnet to murder mysteries. Katie’s boyfriend Declan gets a big surprise from a long lost family member in a rather amazing way. I can’t wait to see what happens with this new revelation. I felt like I got to know the Spellbook Club members more in this book, and I enjoyed seeing their characters develop. I love this series, and it just keeps getting better and better! Highly recommended to fans of light paranormal and culinary cozy mysteries. Rating: 4.5 Stars Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars...

    Review of the audiobook. I read the previous in the series in paperback and returned to audio for this one and I find I prefer it in paperback, but I'm not sure why. There is nothing wrong with the narrator or the story for audio, but for me, it just isn't as good. I thought the mystery here was interesting with the film crew and all of the drama that comes along with it. Declan's developing situation is also interesting, but I'm a little over the almost love triangle that just doesn't go away wit Review of the audiobook.

Overall, I thought this book was a fun read and am interested to see where the series goes next. Though I found some elements of the book hard to believe, I hope they are explored and explained more thoroughly in the next book.

    I was in the mood for some cozy mysteries, and when I saw the cute book covers of this series, I couldn’t resist but purchased all four books at once. The stories are fun to read. Here, we have Katie Lightfoot, a baker who discovers the truth about her heritage in book one, Brownies and Broomsticks, and gradually learns to embrace her special abilities as the series unfolds. In Some Enchanted Éclair, Katie learns that helping a fixer to fix things up can be a precursor of ominous consequences.

In Some Enchanted Éclair, Katie learns that helping a fixer to fix things up can be a precursor of ominous consequences. Can she help to find the killer without getting herself into more trouble? I like Katie. She is hardworking, intelligent and intuitive. While she still has some resistance towards her witch-y destiny, she doesn’t let that ruin her everyday life. It’s fun to see her bake, serve customers at the register, and go running with her dog, Mungo, while pondering on what she can come up with to solve the crime. And when she employs her abilities to make things right, I love that she offers everything she has wholeheartedly and with zero hesitation. This installment is slightly different from the previous books. There aren’t as much witch-y action but there’s a big surprise revealed that both shocked and amazed me when I learned about the details. I don’t want to spoil the fun here but I think the effect of this big surprise will linger and we’ll learn more about it in the upcoming installments. If you love Cairn terriers, you’ll love Mungo the Magnificent. He’s Katie’s familiar and he’s such a cute little dog. He likes human food and would actually throw looks of dismay when dry kibbles were served! As you can imagine, he adds a lot of joy to the series. Although each book has a mystery of its own, I think you’ll enjoy the story a lot more if you read the books from the very beginning. I especially enjoyed the character development in book two, Bewitched, Bothered and Biscotti and book three, Charms and Chocolate Chips but if you’re looking for a plot that’s entertaining and pleasurable to read, don’t miss Some Enchanted Éclair. -- Originally posted on LeisureReads.com

One day Mimsey Carmichael, a member of the Spellbound Club at The Honeybee, brings in Simon Knapp, who is the production coordinator on the movie set, Knapp is in a bind as he has fired Bonner Catering and would like to have The Honeybee to provide the lunches while they are in town, Katie reluctantly agrees. The next day as she is delivering the food and looking for Knapp she hears a loud scream. Katie Declan head in the direction the scream came from and soon find Knapp, dead with a knife in his back and the knife is one from The Honeybee. While Katie is waiting to be interviewed by Detective Quinn, Ursula Banford, an assistant and psychic to the leading lady Althea, introduces herself and mentions that Katie will be the one to bring the murderer to justice. Soon Ursula suggests the they hold a seance and try and connect with Knapp. Not too many of the crew are willing to participate, but Katie's Spellbound Club comes through. Failing at that Katie's starts her own little investigation and soon find several possible suspects. Not all of the characters from the previous books are back. But those that are provide a nice light hearted touch to the story. But that cute little terrier Mungo, Katie's familiar, is back with his fireflies, and trying to keep his human safe. I really like this series as the author puts just the right amount of information of witchcraft to leave the story believable for me. Delicious sounding recipes are also included. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I don't think I can finish this one. I have steadily gotten less enjoyment from the series as I have continued. My biggest issue is the author overly describes the same things in every single book, things that are not even important to the plot nor add any depth to the characters themselves. on top of this annoying propensity, the author uses nearly the exact same set of descriptive words in every book. this may not have been as obvious if you were to have read the books as they were released so I don't think I can finish this one.

I started the series because I was looking for a light hearted mystery series and the witchcraft and baking angle was interesting. But I think I will not be reading any further books.

    Some Enchanted Éclair is another great read by Bailey Cates. I love this series. She writes it so that as you are reading, you can imagine the sights and sounds in the bakery. Katie is the heroine and also a lightwitch. She has just learned of her skills and is still trying to come into her own. This time there is a movie being filmed in her beloved town. Of course a murder happens. After all what good mystery doesn't have a murder. This one, however has more twists and turns, more family relati Some Enchanted Éclair is another great read by Bailey Cates. I love this series.

What a great read it was. Can't wait for the next one.

    I really like a few things about the series: the detail of the witches and their style of magic, Savannah, and the baking. These are comfortable books to read, because they aren't grimdark and nothing irrevocably bad happens to any of the main characters. That's nice for a change, but I guess I find myself bored with a lot of the mundane/every-day descriptions and the main character's lack of desire to better understand her "light" powers. It is the fourth book and we have only inched forward in I really like a few things about the series: the detail of the witches and their style of magic, Savannah, and the baking.

It is the fourth book and we have only inched forward in that regard. The "whodunnit" mystery aspect and the sleuthing aren't doing enough for me, when the main character's self development is so far behind.
