Fans of the Kitchen Witch Mystery series by Lynn Cahoon will welcome the second novel in the series, Two Wicked Desserts. This fun fantasy cozy novel is set in Magic Springs, Idaho, and Mia Malone, the protagonist is slowly learning witchcraft skills from her grandmother. Presently, they are trying to remove the spirit of warlock Dorian Alexander from Mia’s cat. Even though they have been unsuccessful so far, Dorian’s Grimoire has been transferred to his daughter Cindy, who is more interested in trying to be a Hollywood star than furthering her father’s magic legacy. Cindy, however, has become a suspect in the murder of a hit man who was found in the garden of Mia’s Morsels, Mia’s catering business, so she has to cooperate with Mia and her investigation of the murder.

Although Mia Malone was developed in the first installment of the series, Cahoon further develops her character and she becomes even more likeable. Cahoon also does a good job of developing the supporting characters, many of whom have supernatural powers.

Cahoon is also a good storyteller, and is able to add twists and turns as well as surprises to keep the readers on the edge. There is some suspense that builds throughout the novel, and the plot line is fun to follow. The dénouement is, of course, a surprise, and as usual, Mia, with the help of her grandmother and a few others, is able to solve the mystery.

Cozy fans will have fun reading this novel and will want to read the subsequent ones in this series, and the two wicked dessert recipes are worth making to eat while reading the novel.
