The Macaron Witch is a paranormal romance and part of the Broomstick Bakery series. It includes witchy bakers, enchanted patisserie, and a standalone m/f romance.
I received a free copy from the author through Booksprout and voluntarily reviewed it.
After finishing The Cupcake Witch I dove right into book 2 The Macaron Witch. In The Macaron Witch Hazel is invited to teach a class at her old cookery school. While there she meets the handsome sous chef who helps her out and shows interest in her baking with magic. The two get talking and Hazel agrees to teach him about magic in baking.
I liked the strong focus on baking. It was fun to read about Hazel’s baking and also how food was the thing that first connected her and Antonio. I liked how most of their dates involved cooking, baking or food in some way as well. I liked reading about Hazel and Antonio, they were fun characters to read about and felt real. I thought it was interesting how Antonio loves baking, but actually wants to do something else with his career, while Hazel is happy with the job she has.
There is a bit of a miscommunication issue, but I liked how it was handled. It made sense from both their point of views what happened and I like that they talking things through instead of letting it escalate into a bigger issue. I thought it was great to see how they handled it. They were great to read about and I hope we get to see a bit of how things are going next with them.
I like reading about the bakery and the sisters that work there. There’s a bit of a set up for the next book at the end too and I am curious about Ash.
To summarize: I really enjoyed The Macaron Witch. I enjoyed reading about Hazel and her romance with Antonio. I liked the strong food theme of this book with all the baking and cooking and how food was the thing that connected the two of them at first. I liked reading about their romance and all the food. I liked how they handled a bit of a miscommunication issue that popped up and how they talked it through before it could escalate into a bigger issue. The bakery is a lot of fun to read about and all the sisters that work there.
Again with the yummy baking back drop. I normally don’t like miscommunication as the conflict. However, from your description, it not only made sense, but was handled well in this story. Another good one.

I hadn’t even realized I had scheduled two baking related reviews in the same week. I also don’t usually like miscommunication as conflict, but it was really well handled here, it made sense and they talked it through instead of letting it escalate.
This sounds good and now I’m hungry for something sweet.
