** spoiler alert ** 2.5 - 3 stars

A 3 had there been a solid conclusion that did not give the impression of an impending sequel and the loose ends that necessitate one.

Rosemary Bliss is the underappreciated, low on self-esteem daughter of magical bakers with three siblings.

I liked the story, thought it was fun and cute, but it lacked depth, real humor, any sparkle to its prose and worst of all, no conclusion or resolution to Lily's absconding with the magic cookbook. Also, I wanted more from Ty and Sage appreciating and showing that they actually cared about Rose, which I never felt we received. And her parents' sudden, "Oh, no, you are so important! You make everything work!" felt forced and abrupt, not to mention, insincere. Prove it! I would actually have preferred Rose to leave with Lily than this! So much needed characterization, world-building and defined inter-relationships.

Next book isA Dash of Magic.
