Aimed at young readers, but a fun read for anyone with a sweet tooth, Bliss follows the adventures of a family of bakers with a magical secret. The Bliss Cookery Booke is filled with special recipes that can, deliciously, do everything from cure sleepwalking to combat a flu epidemic. But when the Bliss parents head out of town on an important trip, leaving the bakery—and the valuable recipe book—in their charming children’s hands, things get a little out of hand. The enterprising children take a stab at some of the ancient recipes, and soon find that a few mistakes can lead to a lot more trouble than just a fallen soufflé.


Like the perfect dessert, you’ll hope this book never ends. Luckily, the sequel, A Dash of Magic, is available for preorder now.

I look forward to Free Friday every week!  and like other posters truly appreciate our "free book" posters.  We are in for snow and ice on the East Coast so, lots of time to read this week end. Thanks everyone and stay safe and warm.

Thank y'all for the great downloads and taking the time to find them all.   As we've been having 70+ degree days here in Houston the cold snap sounds appealing.  I miss seasons, we have hot & not so hot. :smileyhappy:
