But avoiding her fate won't be as easy as whipping up a new recipe-especially when Katie finds herself once again mixed up in murder.When a fellow volunteer for the conservation group is found dead, Katie's mystical senses tell her that there's more to the death than meets the eye. Her suspicions are confirmed when members of her coven are targeted next. Katie will have to embrace her powers quickly . . . or she may find herself chewed up and spit out by some serious black magic.

First Thought when Finished: Charms and Chocolate Chips had a really strong mystery that I really enjoyed. While I am still not a fan of Katie, I am a fan of everyone else. The spellbook club is delightful and I really love Declan. The mystery was really the star of Charms and Chocolate Chips. Katie had to use all of her smarts (and her spellbook club) to track down who killed her friend. The series arch also moved forward though the end left me wanting more answers! Overall this was enjoyable!

Narrated By Amy Rubinate and she did an excellent job. Her voice for Katie and the rest of the ladies of the Spellbook club were done really well. I think she made me enjoy this book a tad bit more than I would have otherwise.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
