A Dash of Magic: A Bliss Novel by Kathryn Littlewood

To the horror of the Bliss family, Aunt Lily has used the mystical recipes from the stolen Bliss Cookery Booke to launch herself towards international stardom. To expose Lily's evil plans, Rose challenges her to an acclaimed baking competition in Paris: the Gala des Gâteaux Grands. If Rose wins, Lily must return the Cookery Booke to the Bliss family. As the competition unfolds, Rose sees that Lily is cheating by using Bliss recipes to win in each baking category. So Rose and her family work together to find the purest magical ingredients to combat Lily's maniacal baked goods.

In Littlewood’s sequel of Bliss, readers are whisked away from comforts of Calamity Falls to visit the exotic locations of Mexico and Paris. While in Paris, Littlewood creates a magical “tour” of the French capital by going to such places as the top of the Eiffel Tower to collect “unspoiled raindrops”, the Catacombs to gather a “ghostly gust”, or to Notre Dame Cathedral to capture the “midnight chime” of a the Emmanuel bell. But besides the adventurous story, the heart of the book is about the strength and power that comes from a loving family. A family’s love and legacy are the key ingredients that help Rose conquer her fears. The next book in the Bliss series is called Bite-sized Magic.
