Review of How (Not) to Kiss a Toad
How (Not) to Kiss a Toad -Cindy Eller #1
Elizabeth A. Reeves
How (not) to kiss a toad is the first book in the new Cindy Eller series by Elizabeth Reeves. This is such a fun and likeable series. Cindy Eller is a witch with powers that often go awry, except when she is in the bakery creating the most delectable treats, then her magic is perfect. Every time Cindy goes on a date and she kisses the man she is with goodnight, he turns into a toad because he's not Mr. Right. This time though, her toad doesn't turn back like all the others do. She seeks the help of her step-father in getting the toad to turn back and even he, who is a powerful wizard, can't figure out what went wrong. In the meantime, the bakery where Cindy is the pastry chef is about to be transferred to a new owner and Cindy and her roommates who also work at the bakery are about to be out of their jobs if they can't come up with a down payment to buy the bakery themselves. Cindy's creations in the bakery are nothing short of magical. In fact, the only time Cindy's powers don't go awry is when she's in the bakery creating the most amazing pastries.
The characters in this book are so loveable and many parts of this story are laugh out loud hysterical.the story is well written and once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down. This is a must read for anyone who loves checklist with a dash of magic.
