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.


Free Fridays Recommends


Each week, we ask our featured author to recommend a book or author that you may want to check out. Since authors are such passionate readers themselves, we thought you might like to find out what they love to read, too! Here’s what Kathryn recommends:

i am LOVING all the free friday books!!  yes, some of them were repeats, but they are ones i may have forgotten about having so now my interest is piqued. 


my favorite decadent dessert is a slice of triple chocolate cheesecake...oh, it is so bad for me but oh so good.  any other desserts though would be brownies, cookies, cake...whatever i can whip up!

Sounds like a fun book.  And cool freebies.  (As always, just double check stuff before you click on it.)

Not sure how decadent they are, but oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and a big glass of milk is always good with a book. 
Oddly, depending on what I am reading, I often have a craving for apples.  (Easy travel fruit, I suppose)
