Excerpt from Cupcakes, Trinkets, and other Deadly Magic

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

I have been reading quite a bit the last couple of books, what to share with you…? I think I had the most fun reading Cupcakes, Trinkets, and other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge. I initially looked at it thinking it was a cozy mystery, but it is actually more of a witchy suspense, along with vampires, werewolves, and necromancers. There is an element of mystery to it as well, but it is really not the main focus. It was a very enjoyable read, and I may read more of the series.

“The bedroom is vampire free.” Sienna sashayed back into the kitchen and snagged a cookie. “I checked the closet, the shower, and under the bed.”

If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept — was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.


  1. Great teaser – this may be one for my TBR list. Cupcakes AND vampires? What could possibly go wrong!? 😉

    Thanks for visiting!

  2. What a fun teaser. Did they remember to check the ceiling though. LOL Thanks for sharing this. I have it on my kindle and keep forgetting to read it. Now I will!

    My TT – http://fuonlyknew.com/2015/03/17/teaser-tuesdays-106-confess-by-colleen-hoover/

  3. I recently downloaded this one, but have yet to read it. Meanwhile, a friend read all four books in a little over a week. Glad to hear you enjoyed it! My teaser: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

  4. I never would have guessed this to be a book about vampires, or perhaps this is just a witty character showing a form of sarcasm 😛 Still, great teaser! I love the cover art too!

  5. Ooh a good few of the teasers that I’ve come across this week have been supernatural fiction. They’re my guilty pleasure; I do enjoy a good vampire/werewolf/magic-y plot, and there appears to be cupcakes involved too- bonus! What’s more, it appears to be free on Amazon.co.uk for Kindle. I’m going to snatch that one up immediately!

    Here’s my TT for the week: http://deweygirl.co.uk/2015/03/teaser-tuesday-stardust/

  6. Okay, yet another for the TBR pile. Yes. I would (and will) definitely pick this one up.

  7. Oh this sounds fun!! I love good foodie books. If you feel like it (or remember) you could link this up with my Weekend Cooking meme next Saturday. Foodie novels are always fun to read.

  8. Oh this sounds like a good one, going to put it on my list. Great teaser!
