REVIEW: Spells & Stitches by Barbara Bretton

Spells & Stitches
Author: Barbara Bretton

Goodreads Synopsis: In the latest novel from the USA Today bestselling author, raising a baby is hard, but raising one with magical powers is even harder… 
Sugar Maple, Vermont, knitting store owner Chloe Hobbs couldn’t be happier about her pregnancy. But with the arrival of the town’s newest resident, things are about to get a lot more magical.
Baby Laria is six pounds, eleven ounces of perfect, and Chloe and Luke are over the moon. But when they learn that Laria takes after her mom in the sorcery department, it becomes clear that their baby might have more power than even a pro like Chloe can handle…

This is the 4th installment of the Sugar Maple series.  These books are a fun, quick read.  My mom was the one who found them and always passes them along to me once she’s finished.  These are great books to read if you’re in the middle of a long one and need a break.  I read this over a 2-day period, but it was probably about 6-7 hours of reading total.

The characters are great.   I really enjoy the whole knitting part of it; mainly because I knit.  One thing I enjoy about these books is the patterns listed at the back of the book.  (Similar to other books involving knitting or cooking, some type of recipe is always included, right?)

Anyway, I don’t have much of a review, though I will say I didn’t really care for the baby’s name (pronounced so it rhymes with Mariah).  Other than that, like I said: it’s a fun, quick read.

I’m able to use this book toward my 50 States challenge. 🙂
