Bat Wings, Rings & Apron Strings (Spells & Caramels #10) by by Erin Johnson
A delicious wedding. A sour and supernatural curse. Will this baker’s next bite be her last? With her wedding to Hank fast approaching, Imogen Banks has come a long way from the magical contest that brought her to Bijou Mer. But when conspirators seek to sabotage the witch’s big day, she fears her latest recipe for happiness will end in disaster. And after the prince falls horribly ill, Imogen and her friends must solve one more dark mystery before her love and kingdom perish.
Speeding through a menu of suspects as long as the guest list, Imogen clashes with a vengeful monarch and a calculating assassin. But as the minutes tick down to seconds, saving her home and her fiancé may require walking away from everything she loves.
Can Imogen create one final concoction to stop a war and marry her soul mate?
Bat Wings, Rings and Apron Strings is the magical conclusion to the Spells and Caramels cozy witch mystery series. If you like witty characters, mystical intrigue and a dash of romance, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s tasty whodunit.
What a wonderful ending to a fantastic, magical series. I still need to go back and catch up on a couple that I missed along the way, but this series has been a great ride. I do recommend that you read them in order, so if you haven’t started yet, I have to ask, “What are you waiting for?” Seriously this is a fun, entertaining series.
In this outing, Imogen and Hank are back in Bijou Mer and planning to get married. The wedding is fast approaching and after spending the night on the town, each in a different location with different friends, Imogen finds herself once again with a mystery to solve. This one however, is big, and if she can’t figure it out, her happiness may never come.
Bats Wings, Rings and Apron Strings is a well-written story that moves quickly. I read it in one day as I could not stop reading until I found out how it was all going to end. This series introduced us to some wonderful characters and unique worlds that I will miss. This mystery takes Imogen on quite a ride. There are good clues to help solve the case, but without Imogen’s intellect and skill solving puzzles, I don’t think they would have cracked this one. I liked that the various characters from previous books were included throughout the story, as Imogen’s journey has come full circle. I have to say that Iggy is still one of my favourite characters. His commentary and banter kept me laughing throughout. Bats Wings, Rings and Apron Strings, just like all the books in this series, has mystery, friendship, humor, suspense, love, fantastic worlds, magic and amazing characters. All good things must come to an end, and Erin Johnson has penned a wonderful ending to the Spells & Caramels series. I highly recommend this book and series with its light mysteries, humour, wonderful characters and amazing worlds. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next. Well done Erin Johnson.
