Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic







Synopsis: If you’d asked me a week ago, I would have told you that the best cupcakes were dark chocolate with chocolate cream cheese icing, that dancing in a crowd of magic wielders — the Adept —  was better than sex, and that my life was peaceful and uneventful. Just the way I liked it. That’s what twenty-three years in the magical backwater of Vancouver will get you — a completely skewed sense of reality. Because when the dead werewolves started showing up, it all unraveled … except for the cupcake part. That’s a universal truth.


Cupcakes is an adult/new adult urban fantasy. It is the first book of the Dowser Series.

“Witches, werewolves and vampires…oh my! Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic is a fun-filled trip into a world where bad magic can get a good witch down and power isn’t always accessed through hard work and determination … sometimes it’s stolen.” – Headshot Heather,

“This was a fun, action filled urban fantasy that will also have you running to bake cupcakes! … and I loved the unpredictability of not knowing what would happen next.” – Sarah, Sarah Elizabeth’s Bookshelf

“The mystery and suspense build up to a riveting and mind-blowing conclusion that shows Doidge as the brilliant riddler that she is. A definite five star even without the mouth-watering cupcake teasers. More please!” – Cindi Clubbs, Mommasez…blog,

“Complete with witches, werewolves, vampires, and necromancers, this novel will keep readers laughing and turning the pages as Jade tries to figure out the truth behind the deaths surrounding her—the deaths that all point to her. ” – 4 stars, Shana, A Book Vacation

    Just found the free first volume of the Dowser series and enjoyed it more than I expected to. It reminds me of the All Souls Trilogy written by Deborah Harkness. Her series is also about a female witch meeting an older Male Vampire. I love that your series was set in Vancouver rather than the USA. I love in Toronto so I firmly support Canadian authors and I love reading novels set in Canada. when I get some money I will eventually buy the rest of the series.
