Amelia Spelled has had a bad week. Her boyfriend dumps her when she inadvertently gives him food poisoning. Her workplace, a telecommunications center, fires all their staff as they are outsourcing offshore, and she is evicted due to smoke damage resulting from her failed attempts at baking. Amelia thinks her luck has changed when she inherits her estranged aunt's store, two mysterious cats, and beautiful Victorian house.
Yet has Amelia jumped out of the frying pan into the fire? To Amelia's dismay, the store is a cake store, and she discovers that her aunt was a witch. To add to the mix, the house has secrets of its own.
When a man is murdered in the cake store, will Amelia be able to cook up a way to solve the crime? Or will her spells prove as bad as her baking?

"I am a what?"
If you like cute, funny books then this series is for you. This book starts with poor Amelia loses her boyfriend, her job and her apartment all in one day. What horrible luck or is it. She then finds out she inherits her aunts business and house properties. She finds out her aunts business is baking which Amelia is horrible at. Thank Goodness there is someone to help her. She inherits two cats(familiars) that belonged to her aunt. A man dies in her store. He is actually a murder victim. Amelia and friends start investigating the death themselves. First the police think it is the cup cakes, then natural cause then find out he was poisoned by rat poison from somewhere( not the cup cakes). Will Amelia and friends fine out who killed the man. While all this is going on she finds out she is a witch. What next.
I look forward reading more of these books. I hope more will be put into audio form. I received this book as a gift from the author.

From precipitous unemployment, to a very strange house and an inherited business that strikes terror in her heart, Amelia begins her new life in a small town where people think that there are no secrets. Then a man drops dead in her new cake shop under suspicious circumstances. She begins to find out that she has many new friends, but the local police are not among them. Let the sleuthing begin! Add in some hilarious situations, and you have a great cozy read.
Tiffany Dougherty gives an excellent audio performance!
