Book blurb:
Today is Elizabeth Stevens’s birthday, and not only is it the one-year anniversary of her husband leaving her, it’s also the day her bakery is required to make a cake—for her ex’s next wedding. If there’s a bitter taste in her mouth, no one can blame her.

But today, Liz is about to receive a gift. Her Grandma Verda isn’t just wacky; she’s a little witchy. An ancient gypsy magic has been passed through her family bloodline for generations, and it’s Liz’s turn to be empowered. Henceforth, everything she bakes will have a dash of delight and a pinch of wishes-can-come-true. From her hunky policeman neighbor, to her gorgeous personal trainer, to her bum of an ex-husband, everyone Liz knows is going to taste her power. Revenge is sweet…and it’s only the first dish to be served.

My thoughts:
Elizabeth Steven’s has had a difficult year since her husband walked out, but things are about to change. Her Grandma Verda has given her a birthday card that holds a special gift meant just for her. It’s a gift of magic that has been passed down through most of the women in the family.

With her ex-husband getting married, and her business partner accepting the wedding cake order, Elizabeth has little choice but to follow through on baking it. Making wishes is about to go a long way in getting a bit of pay-back. Now she just needs to learn how to reverse a few wishes to simplify her love-life and Elizabeth could have the best birthday ever.

A Taste of Magic is a magical tale of romance and revenge. Ms. Madison takes readers on an adventure in baking that’s highlighted with tasty treats, sexy men, and a touch of humor. Elizabeth sets out to test her new talent and see just how far it will go. From heartache and pain a stronger woman emerges to find love and happiness. A Taste of Magic should be enjoyed by readers who like a sprinkle of laughter and magic with their romance. A Stroke of Magic follows as a July 2009 release.

I went to B&N the day it was released and I wanted to get it so bad. I opened the book and the print size was way too small for me so I had to sadly put it back.

Oh no! :( Maybe you could watch for it to be released in 'large print' format?
