Fall is in the air..okay well it’s still summer but I cannot wait for fall! It is my favorite season. Living in Maine, fall is the best time of the year.
I am so delighted to bring you my review for “The Bakeshop at Pumpkin & Spice” by authors Donna Kauffman, Kate Angell, and Allyson Charles. The location for this novel is in Maine, double happy from Miss W!
Cover Love!!!! I absolutely love this cover, it’s so warm and inviting.
About the Book:
Every autumn, Moonbright, Maine, is the picture of charm with its piles of crisp leaves, flickering jack-o’-lanterns … and a touch of the sweetest kind of enchantment.
Witches, goblins, the occasional ghost—they’re all sure to be spotted at the annual Halloween parade, where adults and children alike dress in costume to celebrate Moonbright’s favorite holiday. And no place has more seasonal spirit than Bellaluna’s Bakeshop, a family business steeped in traditional recipes, welcoming warmth—and, legend has it, truly spellbinding, heart-melting treats …
Between good-natured Halloween tricks, frothy pumpkin lattes, and some very special baked goods, for three Moonbright residents looking for love—whether they know it or not—the spookiest thing will be how magical romance can suddenly be.
Miss W’s Review:
5 Magical Romantic Stars from Miss W!
The Bakeshop at Pumpkin and Spice is a great collection of three stories. There is a sparkle of magic in all of them that will leaving you believing in love and romance.
Sweet Magic by Donna Kauffman is the opening book and dare I say my favorite. The setting is Bellaluna’s Bakeshop. A special type of love is in the air and in the baked treats. I loved the well developed characters and story that left me believing in a magical happy ending.
In Love Spells Disaster by Allyson Charles, Cassandra is trying to get a date with her boss. There are some truly laugh out loud moments here. This story focuses heavily on the bakery treats which I loved. There is a lot of emotion in this story and I really enjoyed that!
Sweet on You by Kate Angell, was a fantastic story. Lara, the main character is in the bakeshop with her ex boyfriend after being dumped in the company of a lot of people. In enters the mayor and maybe things might be turning around? I loved how this story had several characters from the first two stories. This story wrapped up the trilogy very nicely .
I absolutely LOVED how these stories tied together while celebrating the town of Moonbright, Maine and all of the Halloween and fall festivities.
I highly recommend this wonderful book !

If you love weddings (who DOESN’T) and second chance stories, then this anthology is what summer was made for! Ahhhh the second chance trope. All the stories centers around couples that are getting that ever elusive second chance at finding love.
I have read books from all of these author’s and it was no surprise that every story in the collection is 5 STARS from Miss W !
It was fun revisiting some familiar characters and meeting some new ones as well.
The stories are well written with characters that you will instantly fall in love with, I know that I did. The stories are romantic, heartwarming, heartbreaking and joyous. I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I felt it all and LOVED every minute. Kudos to these authors for the ability to craft such wonderful complex stories in a novella. I am in LOVE!
