Publisher's Summary

A paranormal cozy mystery series from USA Today best-selling author Nancy Warren 

Under the Great British Baking Contest competition tent, there's more at stake than winning the title of Best Baker in All of Britain. For amateur baker Poppy Wilkinson, there are mysteries to solve, secrets and lies, even murder. As a fledgling witch, Poppy's having enough trouble controlling her sponge cake, never mind trying to control her powers. Besides solving crime, Poppy's also trying to uncover the mystery surrounding her own background. Will she discover who she really is before she gets sent home? Or worse? 

The Great Witches Baking Show is a loving homage to all competitive baking shows, but especially Bake-Off. Imagine Bake-Off with witches and murders - and recipes! Set in the lovely English countryside, these are classic British mysteries with a twist. There's no gore, swearing, or sex in these paranormal cozy mysteries - just good fun, quirky characters, an interfering ghost, and an adorable familiar or three. Sink your teeth into this bingeable series today.

Great Cozy

I love the vampire knitting club, and was super excited for another cozy series from Nancy Warren. This has a fun crew of quirky characters, to go along with intriguing mysteries. If you ever wanted to be a fly on the wall for the Great British Bake off this is the series for you. The narrator sounds like it belongs as a show announcer. Ms McCarthy does several accents well, making it a pleasure to listen to.

Baking show and a mystery

Pacing was good in this clean, cozy mystery set. The books have a touch of magic in them. The mysteries and baking challenges kept me engaged. Light enjoyable audio. Narrator did a good job on accents and voices. Good value for a credit. No romantic interest in first three books. Continuing storyline for baking show and main character's search for information on her origins.

Arrogant main character

I enjoyed the first book, was so-so on the second book, but by the time I'd reached the third book I had to convince myself to continue. The general premise of the series is fine, although it does seem like there has to be a lot going on just to get one book length.

The main character though is judgmental, arrogant, and a bit narcissistic. I won't be continuing the series as by book 3 I found her completely annoying and unlikable.

Unfortunate, as in general it seemed like a nice series.

Pretty good fun cosy mystery

I was looking for something different and am glad I found these books. There is no graffic violence/sex but some good fun with a mystery twist. Looking forward to listening to the next one's.
Only complaint is the narrator had such limited range so often characters blended together unless listening closely.

Painful narration!

Why oh why oh why did they choose an American to ham up a British accent?! It was deeply, deeply awful. I simply couldn’t listen any further than the first fifteen minutes before I cracked the threshold for tolerating awfulness. The story itself was promisingly good. I really enjoyed the Vampire Knitting series. Nancy Warren is a great author but they did her dirty with this narration. No need to buy another Audible book in this series. I’ll read it on a Kindle. Unless I find that this narration has put me off. Crikey!
