Strap on your apron and pull out the baking essentials (along with a bit of pixie dust) because baking has never been more magical (and reading as never been more fun)!

What if you could bake emotions into food? Or weave magic through a tangledA Tangle of Knots  web of fate and enchantment? This story is not scary; there are no deaths, no impending doom or epic battle between good and evil, and yet Lisa Graff manages to weave together something irresistibly sweet, with a touch of a bitter villain and plenty of mystery.

Overall I enjoyed this read. I didn’t find it overly complex, but it is definitely surprising and whimsical. A great read for a sunny afternoon on the front porch . With plenty of sugar.

Official synopsis:

“Told in multiple viewpoints, A Tangle of Knots is a magnificent puzzle. In a slightly magical world where everyone has a Talent, eleven-year-old Cady is an orphan with a phenomenal Talent for cake baking. But little does she know that fate has set her on a journey from the moment she was born. And her destiny leads her to a mysterious address that houses a lost luggage emporium, an old recipe, a family of children searching for their own Talents, and a Talent Thief who will alter her life forever. However, these encounters hold the key to Cady’s past and how she became an orphan. If she’s lucky, fate may reunite her with her long-lost parent. 

Lisa Graff adds a pinch of magic to a sharply crafted plot to create a novel that will have readers wondering about fate and the way we’re all connected.”
