Welcome to Cozy Prizes Friday! I’m a little late today, but don’t worry our visiting author brings us a recipe! Don’t forget to look for the Prize Guy. We are rich in prizes today! Let’s start with some rave reviews for Seashells, Spells & Caramels.
This is delightfully delicious fantasy with romantic overtones. A combination of the popular televised Great Bake-Off shows and catty reality dramas…
Its not the typical cozy, which makes it unique, but it also has some of the elements I like in a cozy mystery, baking and food!

This was an absolutely delightful read!
“Seashells” is a very engaging and entertaining book. I was hooked from word one.
WOW, just WOW! This book is Harry Potter meets Master Chef, and I just couldn’t get enough! I loved everything about this book, except for the fact that it had to end.

This is a story of magic, friendship and murder, entangled with some very interesting characters and some weird enchantments that made me glued to this book till the last page!
When that dream goes up in flames, she accepts a spot in a mysterious baking contest—one she doesn’t remember entering. She travels to a bustling, medieval village off the coast of France and discovers an enchanting world of magic and mystery, and learns that she, too, possesses powers.
Unable to so much as cast a spell, Imogen struggles to keep up with the other witches and wizards who have come from all over the magical world to the Water Kingdom’s big competition. She juggles relationships with a sweet new friend, a snarky baking fire, and a brooding, handsome baker. As Imogen falls for this bewitching world, she fears she won’t master her magic in time to win the job of Royal Head Baker, and will be forced to return to the shambles of her non magical life.
It only gets worse, when a competitor drops dead in the middle of the big white baking tent, and Imogen’s the prime suspect. Now, she’ll not only have to survive the vampire and psychic judges, but also clear her name by finding the real murderer, before they strike again.
With a killer on the loose, a missing prince, and the Summer Solstice Festival fast approaching, Imogen will have to bake like her life depends on it- because it just might.
