Ingredients of Magic

A novel by

Mix one part small-town magic and two parts heartbreak until fluffy. Bake under the Texas sun. Disaster is ready when you can smell it two towns over. Serve hot.

Magical pie baker Gracey Daylittle has everything she needs: her bakery where she bakes music into coveted desserts, a quiet life, and no complications. But when a ghostly figure with a hauntingly familiar face disrupts her fragile existence, Gracey's pastry-crust world crumbles to bits.

Her pies have lost their magic.

On the edge of the Chihuahuan desert, transient teenager Miko runs a bathhouse for spirits and delivers blessings to local families. But when the blessings dry up and a creeping chaos consumes the town, Miko suspects a connection between the town’s bad luck, the phantom, and Gracey’s magic pies.

Desperate not to lose the one thing that gives her life meaning, the baker tries everything to regain her magic and banish the phantom, even accepting questionable magical help from Miko. But when her efforts go disastrously wrong, Gracey has no choice but to do the one thing she has avoided for the better part of her life. To destroy the phantom and restore her town, Gracey must discover and embrace the secret ingredients of magic before her personal demons destroy everything she holds dear.

Ingredients of Magic is a delicious blend of Spirited Away, Like Water for Chocolate, and Gilmore Girls that will transport you to a world where love, magic, music, and pie are baked to sweet perfection.
