Taste of Memory
Series: Spellbound in Hawthorne (Book 1)
A baker, a pyrotechnician, and a truly magical romance.
Sweet contemporary romance with a hint of magic.
♥ A captivating blend of magical realism, heartwarming romance, and small-town New England charm, Taste of Memory will leave you wanting seconds. Good thing it’s the start of the Spellbound in Hawthorne series. ♥
Steeped in colonial history and small-town charm, Hawthorne, Massachusetts hides its secrets right out in the open. A town where Halloween has more witches than Disney princesses, no one actually believes the Covington family has magic, and yet certain things have community members wondering—like the scone flavored by memories.
Expert baker Keira Covington could use some of that family magic. If only it could be acquired like following the steps of a recipe: Take 1 great-great grandma with mystical powers, add 1 ceremony under a full moon, let simmer for 13 years, and kaboom, you’ve got special powers. If it were that easy, she wouldn’t have to stress that she’ll never get the chance to take over the café when her aunt retires. But burning half the customers’ orders and mixing up the other half seems like a terrible recipe for a successful business.
Riding his motorcycle on his bucket-list vacation, pyrotechnician Brant Whitbeck can’t seem to leave the charming small town of Hawthorne, Massachusetts. No, literally—the town won’t let him go. Not until he remembers what is truly important in life. The problem is he doesn’t have a single memory from his childhood.
When Keira stumbles upon an ancestor’s scone recipe, they start to recognize the chemistry between them, but when someone double-crosses Keira, their burgeoning romance explodes like a firecracker.
