School Library Journal - 04/20/2013 Gr 3–6—In this sequel to Bliss (HarperCollins, 2012), Littlewood continues her frothy tale of the magical baking family as they enter a high-stakes culinary competition in Paris to win back their magic recipe book from their evil relative, Lily Le Fay. It is 12-year-old Rose and her siblings who take on the task of finding the ingredients they need, such as the wish of a ghost and the blush of a queen, as they try to outwit and outbake Lily, who has bewitched everyone with her enchanted "Magic Ingredient." Brimming with lighthearted fun, where even the gargoyles turn out to be friendly, this action-packed fantasy, celebrating the courage and ingenuity of children and the wholesomeness of simple baking, will be enjoyed most by those who have read the first book. Travel buffs will like the way the action takes place in and around Parisian tourist attractions. Characterization is light and easy, with some insight into Rose's feelings. Newcomers to the series will need some patience while they get up to speed. The ending suggests a sequel.—Sue Giffard, Ethical Culture Fieldston School, New York City - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
