Mother Daughter Book Club (Saturday, October 18 at 1pm)
Bliss by Kathryn Littlewood

Daughters ages 10 to 13 and their mothers.

"Rosemary's family has a secret. It's the Bliss Cookery Booke an ancient, leather-bound volume of enchanted recipes like Singing Gingersnaps. While their parents are out of town, a mysterious stranger shows up. "Aunt" Lily rides a motorcycle and also whips up exotic (but delicious) dishes for dinner. Soon boring, non-magical recipes feel like life before Aunt Lily—a lot less fun.

So Rose and her siblings experiment with just a couple of recipes from the forbidden Cookery Booke. A few Love Muffins and Cookies of Truth couldn't cause too much trouble . . . could they?"
