Love Sugar Magic: A Dash of Trouble is the debut book in a delightful, lighthearted, fun, and character-driven young middle grade series about a family of Mexican American bakers who also happen to be brujas—witches! Leonora Logroño’s family owns the most beloved bakery in Rose Hill, Texas, spending their days conjuring delicious cookies and cakes for any occasion. And no occasion is more important than the annual Dia de los Muertos festival. Leo hopes that this might be the year that she gets to help prepare for the big celebration—but, once again, she is told she’s too young. Sneaking out of school and down to the bakery, she discovers that her mother, aunt, and four older sisters have in fact been keeping a big secret: They’re brujas—witches of Mexican ancestry—who pour a little bit of sweet magic into everything that they bake.
