Have you been to the bliss bakery? I’ve heard they have an ancient cookbook full of magical recipes. They can cure the dying, or make someone fall in love, or just make someone fall asleep. I even heard they can make cookies that can make someone tell the truth! Can you believe it? But the rumor is that they don’t make them unless they really have to. But they’re out of town right now, and their kids are running the shop. Someone said they have their Aunt Lily there, but I don’t know; she doesn’t look like she fits in with them very well, and all she seems to want is that book. I wonder if we could get some Love Muffins since she’s there..?
This is a fabulous middle-reader that I loved every second of! Follow Rosemary (Rose) Bliss in her attempts to keep her family’s secret ancient cookbook out of Aunt Lily’s hands, while trying to copy down a few of the recipes for herself while her parents are away. Is Lily really who she claims to be? Rose’s parents have never talked about Lily before, and the woman seems to have Rose’s brothers spellbound by her exotic charm. Something is definitely strange, and Rose needs to find out what’s going on before anything bad happens to the book or the family.
