Review of A Dash of Trouble (Love Sugar Magic) by Anna Meriano (ebook)


 

 

A Dash of Trouble by Anna Meriano 

 

Leonora Logroño’s family owns the most beloved bakery in Rose Hill, Texas, spending their days conjuring delicious cookies and cakes for any occasion. And no occasion is more important than the annual Dia de los Muertos festival.

Leo hopes that this might be the year that she gets to help prepare for the big celebration—but, once again, she is told she’s too young. Sneaking out of school and down to the bakery, she discovers that her mother, aunt, and four older sisters have in fact been keeping a big secret: they’re brujas—witches of Mexican ancestry—who pour a little bit of sweet magic into everything that they bake.

Leo knows that she has magical ability as well and is more determined than ever to join the family business—even if she can’t let her mama and hermanas know about it yet.

And when her best friend, Caroline, has a problem that needs solving, Leo has the perfect opportunity to try out her craft. It’s just one little spell, after all…what could possibly go wrong?

 

review

 

This was cute and I loved that there were recipes at the end.

Leo is kind of adorable, but also a bit of a stubbon kid that wants to be grown up. She finds out that her family does magic, but they hide it from her. She’s not supposed to learn until she’s older. But Leo finds a spellbook and starts doing some of them. But all the spells backfire in some way. Especially the spells she does to help her best friend. Their family uses baking with their magic and own a bakery. So the book is full of food. There is a lot of Spanish in the book. Most is translated or easy to understand. I loved the focus on sisters and friendship in this. Overall, it was just an enjoyable book.

I gave this book 4 stars.
