Product description

Product Description

Cindy Eller is a witch with a gift for creating decadent desserts highlighting the exotic and spicy flavors of her native Southwest. However, life isn't always sweet for this magical baker. All her life she's been cursed-- every man she's ever kissed has turned into a toad. Love isn't likely to come her way, she knows.

If that weren't a big enough problem, her 'curse' has come to the attention of the Council of Magic and she may never be able to use her powers.

Enter the perfect man-- handsome, sweet, and loves food just as much as Cindy does. It would seem to be a match made in Heaven, or is it?

Cindy isn't the only one keeping secrets.

With toads, cupcakes, romance, magic and ice cream, life never has time to get dull!

This is an enjoyable and easy to read book. Despite some sloppy editing in parts, it is fun and light with like-able characters. Well worth the time.

HOW (NOT) TO KISS A TOAD is the first full-length storyline in Elizabeth A. Reeves new paranormal contemporary series Cindy Eller. There is a short prequel novella (How Not To Play With Magic) that introduces the series protagonist and her sisters, but it is not necessary to the plot.

Cindy Eller is a witch (or so she believes) but there is a problem-her mother refuses to talk about her father and therefore she is unable to determine who or what she is. Whenever she kisses a man, he turns into a toad. And to make matters worse, her most recent trip into Toadville has remained in his amphibious state. As Cindy struggles to make right the wrong, she will encounter more problems when the Council of Magic believes she is wielding her power for no good.

Enter Mr. Right –toad number two- and Cindy knows she has been cursed. When Mr. Right makes all the right moves and says all the right things, she believes she has found ‘the one’. But Mr. Right has a secret or two himself. Cindy’s kiss will once again curse the new man in her life and now she must face the Council of Magic to determine if she will be stripped of her powers forever.

HOW (NOT) TO KISS A TOAD is a humorous take on a fairytale premise. Written in the chic-lit genre, there are moments of fun and entertainment meshed into a storyline about three friends working in a bake shop who one day hope to make it on their own. With an extended family of half-sisters and more, you know there will be several more storylines in the Cindy Eller series.

Elizabeth Reeves takes the reader on a ride through cupcake heaven and lands them squarely into the icy realm of gourmet ice-cream hell. The relationship with Mr.

My rating system: 1= Hated everything about it, 2= Readable... wish/glad it was free, 3= Pleasant but didn't stand out, 4= Very enjoyable, well written, happily bought (will buy) more from this author, 5= Un-putdownable, riveting story, brilliantly written, may have changed my life finding this author.
Currently on book #6, having started with this one three days ago. Ms Reeves writing is as addictive as her "flavour profiles", I found myself kneading to know what happens next (pun intended). The series is a light-hearted romp through fairytales, magic butted against reality - along with all the problems that can cause - and sweet romance. Sure, the writing is full of cliches, that's integral to the humour; if you don't groan and roll your eyes, you aren't "getting it". Then again I still adore the first Shrek movie.

This series must be read in order. The first book is How (Not) to Play with Magic (A Cindy Eller Short Story Prequel) (Cindy Eller Snack). This is the second book.

I love this book! I was seriously disappointed when it was over lol. I do not know how Elizabeth does it but with every book she writes the world becomes more and more immersive and alive :) I admit freely that I am a Cindy Eller addict :) And i want to infect everyone else my addiction :) These books are fast paced and easy to read as Elizabeth's voice breathes life into her characters and their world. The only complaint I ever have is that I want MORE !!!! :)

***This series is suitable for mature young adult through adult readers who enjoy modern fantasy with a fractured fairytale vibe and magical mayhem with a dash of romance :)

This series is well written with a strong sense of humor. It is filled with the joy of life that is too easy to forget as we grow older and become world weary. I found a reminder in this story of why I learned to love books so long ago. This should appeal to the young teenager and the young woman in all of us.
