(A book in the Samantha Sweet series)
A Novella by

 
 
It's Halloween, one of the busiest seasons of the year for Samantha Sweet and the crew at her pastry shop, Sweet's Sweets. After baking a zillion pumpkin cookies, ghostly cupcakes, and an all-black cake for a young witch's wedding, the gang is looking forward to a gala costume party at the neighborhood bookshop. But when one of the guests is murdered and a rare book vanishes - practically in front of their eyes - the evening takes a whole different turn and Sam finds herself in the midst of another mystery.

BONUS: Includes 10 recipes from the author's personal collection.

Praise for Spellbound Sweets, from the anthology Midnight Mysteries:

"This was my first time reading Connie Shelton, but it will not be the last. I love her writing style and love her main character, Samantha Sweet, whose series I will be buying. I tend toward more "heavy" mysteries, but this example of the cozy genre makes me want more. This was a real whodunit in the classic sense, with actors, a bakery, an antique book store, and witches to enliven the story." - Riverlizzie, 5 stars on Amazon

"Connie Shelton's Spellbound Sweets novella is delightful. Just reading about Samantha Sweet and friends at her pastry shop will leave you drooling in anticipation of delicious treats. Join the Halloween party at a bookstore where someone dies and a rare book is now missing. This makes me crave another book in this series." - Joanne K, 5 stars, Amazon

"Connie Shelton created a book full of mystery, perfect from the first page! Don't you think there's always some mystery in the bookshops?" - Maria, 5 stars, Amazon

"Spellbound Sweets"- Delectable yet witchy storyline that never wavered from the bakery aroma for too long! A longer read but worth the extra time for sure. The teamwork between Samantha and Beau was a main draw as well as attention to detail, down to the last frosted cookie." - Janine Thiemann, 5 stars, Amazon

"Spellbound Sweets by Connie Shelton was fun - although I think I gained weight reading about Samantha Sweet and the "crew" at her pastry shop. It is one of a few Samantha Sweet Magical Cozy Mysteries I've read and I'll find previous stories to catch up." - GDS, 5 stars, Amazon
