The Gingerbread Witch (Broomstick Bakery #3)
by Laura Greenwood
My Rating: 4 stars
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Age Category: Adult
Type of romance: MF
Rowen wants to make certain that her time at the Christmas Fayre is well spent, especially when it comes to selling her magically infused cakes.
Edward loves the season, and jumps at the chance at helping his brother on the mulled wine stand.
When the two of them meet, sparks begin to fly and they realise that there might be something more between them than just a love of the fayre.
The Gingerbread Witch is a paranormal romance with a hint of Christmas spirit, a baking witch, and a light-hearted m/f romance. It is part of the Broomstick Bakery series.
I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.
I am really enjoying this series so far and was excited to read Rowen’s story in The Gingerbread Witch. When I started the first chapter I already knew this was going to be another good one. I like Laura Greenwood’s writing and something about this series is just so light, fun and comfortable. The setting around the holidays was great and I liked reading about The Christmas Fayre Rowen attended and where she meets Edward. I liked reading about the magical cakes, the bakery and Rowen’s role in it all.
I really liked the romance between Rowen and Edward, they were so sweet together and I liked seeing how they grew closer. Rowen hasn’t dated in a while and has some worries, but I liked how when she acts in a certain way she regrets she makes sure to apologize to Edward. I liked how Edward was understanding and also how he helped her out when there was an issue on the fayre later on. Their connection was clear and I really liked reading about them.
Another thing I liked about this book was that we get to see more of Ash, the youngest sibling in the family and the only one not part of the bakery. He got his own novella and I felt like a certain plot thread didn’t get fully resolved, which makes sense now as that continues in this book. I liked seeing how Ash helped Rowen at the fayre and his clear passion for the store and food. Their sibling banter was fun to read about and I liked seeing How Rowen interacted with the other sisters as well. I liked reading about the magical food they sell and how the manage the bakery.
To summarize: This was another great read in this series. It was lighthearted, fun and romantic. There was something that felt so comfortable about returning to this series and I really enjoyed this story. The holiday theme of this book was fun and I liked reading about the Christmas Fayre. Edward and Rowen were great together, their romance was so sweet and I liked them together. There are some great scenes and I liked how Rowen made sure to apologize about her behavior and explaining things to him and how Edward helped her out when there was an issue at the fayre. They made for a great couple and I liked reading about them. I liked how this book continues a plot thread from Ash’s novella and I enjoyed seeing Rowen interact with Ash. I look forward to the next book in this series!
I’m glad to you enjoyed it so much! I’ve only read one of Laura’s books and it was ok, but I think it was the wrong genre for me. So I really want to try another, this series might be a good one for me to try. Great review!
I only started reading her books recently and I’ve been really enjoying them. I hope you get to try one of her books again, she has a lot of freebies too on her website through Bookfunnel. This series is one of my favorites so far, her Obscure Academy one is really good too and The Cauldron Coffee Shop one.
It does sound like a sweet one with the holiday theme. I do appreciate when a character wrongs another character that they can apologize. Nice that Edward’s so understanding.
