    Wow, not something I can answer quickly, going to take some time to think on it. Type would depend on her mood…hmmm….

    This is what you came for by Calvin Harris and Rhianna playing as you walk into the bakery.. I definitely came for the cupcakes! 🙂

  5. July 15, 2016 3:34 PM

    I think the music in the bakery would be very eclectic and varied based on Jade’s mood. But I think it would be more coffeehouse stylings rather than the original performers.

    Jade’s theme song would be ON FIRE by Alicia Keyes

    I loved the entire series. Would highly recommend. Song being “That Old Blackmagic”

    I can imagine Katie Perry’s song ‘Roar’ being Jade’s theme song.

    Desmond is my favorite character and his theme song should be “Teach me Tiger” by Marilyn Monroe and yes she is breathless in this song too. — hope I posted this correctly

    Honestly, I don’t assign music to places or things… I’m actually a bit paralyzed by this question, and wondering what’s wrong with me! 😉 I love, love, love both the Dowser and Oracle series, though, and cannot wait for the next ones!

      There’s nothing wrong with you if I may say Amy, I was stumped by it too but I LOVE these books too so I had to take a shot.

    I don’t know what songs would be good, but I sure enjoyed the books.

  13. gina permalink
    July 15, 2016 3:57 PM

    I hear an eclectic mix of relatively new music…. slow to medium beat, mostly… makes you want to sway while you wait in line, but not jump up and down.

    • gina permalink
      July 15, 2016 4:00 PM

      Jade’s song, to me, could easily be Mustang Sally

      • gina permalink

        Oooo… or Stevie Nick’s Rooms on Fire!

  14. July 15, 2016 3:59 PM

    I’ve not been this excited for a series of books since the Sword of Truth series.

    • July 15, 2016 4:01 PM

      Forgot to mention music. Lol. I normally listen to meditation music. Nature and singing bowls normally.

    I can see Kandy listening to loud alternative, playing in the bakery some kind of indie music.

  16. Shannen McPhee permalink
    July 15, 2016 4:16 PM

    For some reason I hear montages of Bare Naked Ladies songs when I think of the Bakery

    Bob Marley sun is shining right as Warner walks in for them to go on their dim sum date!!😀😍😍

    I’very always heard a little Stevie Ray Vaughan, and David Bowie in Cake in a Cup……mmm delicious!

  20. Heather Schlosser permalink
    July 15, 2016 4:52 PM

    Oh, I love this! I definitely hear more folksy, singer/songwriter stuff in the bakery. Walkin on sunshine for Kandy, and portishead whenever Kett comes around 😉

  21. Melissa Baade permalink
    July 15, 2016 4:53 PM

    “Bad to the Bone” by George Thorogood (sp?) … duh 😉

  22. Lisa permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:05 PM

    I hear “Build me up buttercup!”

  23. July 15, 2016 5:08 PM

    Some nights by FUN, anything by Coldplay or in some cases during the book, I Wanna Rock n’Roll All Night by Kiss! I can picture that playing during some battle scenes

  24. Wendy Schindler permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:08 PM

    I think the music playing at Cake in a Cup would be the CD “Songs From A Secret Garden.

    The action adventure soundtrack would include:
    Wolves at the Door by Bad Seed Rising
    Warrior by Imagine Dragons
    I Am The Fire by Halestorm
    Hard Walkin’ Blues by Amanda Fish
    The Light by Disturbed
    The Vengeful One by Disturbed
    Breath Of Life by Florence and the Machine

    just to name a few.. LOL

    Well this is a tuff one for me, but I think that maybe Jade would have a variety of music playing in the bakery. Maybe some music that gets the customers to feel comfortable, relaxed, and excited about coming in to the bakery. Thank you for the chance to win these audiobooks.

    Dance music! Nothing better than rockin’ out in the kitchen!

  27. Rocio Sandoval-Dickson permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:38 PM

    When I bake I like music I can dance and sing to so I can have fun while working, so I will go with dance music sort of like disco-ish, mixed with club music. Makes the day go by faster and keeps the mood light and on the happy side 😊

  28. Angie Manes permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:40 PM

    Proud Mary by CCR. For some reason I see Jade dancing with abandon to it as she is baking;)

  29. Angela Firuccia permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:42 PM

    River by Bishop Briggs. I can see her dancing and relishing the tasty magic!

  30. Amy Hall permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:47 PM

    I think she would play an assortment from Oldies to Indie depending on her mood.

  31. Diane permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:51 PM

    Ok this is going to sound corny,bit every time Jade is kicking a** I literally hear Taylor Swifts song Shake It Off…I know I’m a dork but honestly listening the lyrics like “I’m lightening on my feet” so yeah lol. I hear it every time she is shaking loose getting ready to give someone a smack down 😁

  32. Lindsey Jackson permalink
    July 15, 2016 5:57 PM

    When I read these books,while Jade is in the bakery I hear music like lesbnese blonde by Theivery corporation (specifically Lebanese blonde), Tegan and Sara, Dog Days by Florence and the Machine, and wonderwall- the Ryan Adams version. Pepper in couple of up-beat Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars songs to encourage the occasional dance break or sing along, and I can almost smell the cupcakes 🙂

    Had the iPod on shuffle while reading Dowser 5. When Warner appeared in the ally Never Tear Us Apart by INXS came on. Made me ball twice as hard. I imagine an eclectic mix for the bakery. I’d like to hang there!

  34. DiJenkins permalink
    July 15, 2016 6:16 PM

    I would think her music style would be all over the place. Not tied to any genre or decade. So here I go showing you my decades but maybe something lie, Moon Over Bourbon Street — Sting, A wolf at the Door — Radiohead, Black magic Woman — Santana, even Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon for some fun.

  35. July 15, 2016 7:15 PM

    Megan Trainor! Sass, spice, provocative without being risqué!

  36. Meagen permalink
    July 15, 2016 7:36 PM

    I could easily hear groups like Coldplay, Fun, Snow Patrol, Mumford & Sons, Lindsey Stirling, and Bastille playing in the Bakery.

    If I could pick a song for Jade it would be Immortal by Marina and The Diamonds! It’s a great song and it makes me think of her and Warner.

  37. Amyayanita permalink
    July 15, 2016 8:04 PM

    For some silly reason I hear, “Working For A Living”

  38. Kristi Robinson permalink
    July 15, 2016 9:19 PM

    The song would be “Black Magic Woman” because it reminds me of my favorite cake recipe!

  39. Amber permalink
    July 15, 2016 9:47 PM

    Okay so when she’s in the club they play newer music but Jade can dance to any music as long as it has a good beat! So I wouldn’t stick with one genre…in the bakery probaly something light like… Yazoo- Only you.. or Birdy- Skinny Love

  40. beth permalink
    July 15, 2016 10:37 PM

    Jade’s theme song is The Police “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic.” I especially like how the song swings from frenetic to flowing and back again.

  41. Ada Kringler permalink
    July 15, 2016 11:23 PM

    I agree with the other posters that the music would be eclectic. I hear Amy Winehouse-F Me Pumps or Valerie in the background. I also think she may play some oldies , definitely some jazz, a little Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday.

  42. July 15, 2016 11:59 PM

    I listen to Bruno Mars on Pandora while reading. Keeps me moving. Always have Pandora on switch between Elvis, Spice Girls, Bruno is the go to also do old school rock and country.

  43. Regina Michele Murphy permalink
    July 16, 2016 12:35 AM

    Jade’s song would be Titanium – by David Guetta feat.Sia
    In the bakery I think it would be Jack Johnson music

  44. Tasmin Baker permalink
    July 16, 2016 12:54 AM

    Each customer would hear a different song that perfectly accompanied the cupcake (or mixture of cupcakes cookies etc) they were about to eat as the air strummed with the magic in jades cupcakes just waiting to be realised to dance through the senses of the person about to take a bite.

      Ooo. I love this answer.

  45. July 16, 2016 1:11 AM

    I think Calvin Harris – This Is What You Came For (feat. Rihanna) might be a good fit. Fingers crossed I’m lucky! ☺️

  46. Jenelle C Prins permalink
    July 16, 2016 1:13 AM

    At the café, the music would be eclectic, but I hear “The Promise” by Tracy Chapman. Kade’s background music would be “Boadicea” by Enya.

    Imagine dragons albums!

  48. July 16, 2016 4:28 AM

    My Demons by Starset is the anthem for Jade’s passion and loss of both Hudson and Sienna. She’s a strong character and feels so deeply. Even after reading a second time I still got choked up when Jade saw Hudson’s body under the trees. Heartbreaking.

  49. Ruth Hosenfeld permalink
    July 16, 2016 8:53 AM

    It’s would have to be Katy Perry “Roar”.

    Norah Jones. She has something for everyone. How could she not be versatile with Ravi as her dad?

    My all time favorite song is Witchy Woman and since her mother and grandmother are most often found in the bakery I think this would be appropriate to be played there! 🙂

    July 16, 2016 3:24 PM

    I could see Jade playing a lot of ccol and soothing Sade in her bakery. Cool Operator would play every time Ket walks in!

  56. July 16, 2016 3:29 PM

    I loved every one I’ve read the oricle and downer both they would be great to listen to while exercising

  57. July 16, 2016 8:05 PM

    I think jade would have alternative girl power music on ….. Depending on her mood ….bec I also think because of kandy she would have songs playing that mention cake, candy, cookies, etc. also if the book were turned into a movie on the sound track should be Evenescence song wake me up on the fight scene when her sister dies.

  58. July 16, 2016 8:09 PM

    For some reason I’m thinking of a local band, Larkspurs. This:

    July 17, 2016 2:45 PM

    Totally non musical and after reading the above post can hear most of the songs playing in one scene or other, but I keep thinking “I am Woman” when I think of Jade…. so I’ll go with that.

    July 18, 2016 2:58 AM

    I can’t narrow it down to one artist or song. However, I see Jade rocking her socks off to good old fashioned hard rock. Everything from the Stones to contemporary rock.

  63. Sharon permalink
    July 18, 2016 7:54 AM

    I hear music by violinist Lindsey Stirling

  64. Carolyn permalink
    July 18, 2016 2:53 PM

    I think Witchy Woman by the Eagles could easily be Jade’s theme song.

  65. July 18, 2016 4:32 PM

    Ooh yes yes yes! My teen loves listening to audiobooks in the car with me, I think he will love this series…

    • July 18, 2016 4:35 PM

      Ooops, forgot to mention the music — I think Jade would love the sensual brazilian crooning of the “Woman on Top” soundtrack in her shop 😉

  66. July 18, 2016 6:53 PM

    Jade would listen to Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (are made of this) in her cup cake shop and would sing along whilst she bakes

  67. July 18, 2016 6:57 PM

    I picture a bunch of classic rock-.some early Led Zeppelin (I think the trinkets blowing would sound great with the intro of Stairway to Heaven).

  70. July 19, 2016 10:48 AM

    Forgot the song….that’s a tough one. These characters have a lot of sides and changing interpersonal dynamics. I love that they surprise us sometimes in their interests. I think the song changes from time to time. I’ve read a lot of the comments and can see a mood for just about everything. I can see introspective Bach cello to kick butt rock.

    There would be an eclectic variety playing in the bakery.

  73. July 19, 2016 3:05 PM

    My Dowser Series Soundtrack has multiple CD’s. LOL Kandy’s CD has a lot of Disturbed, Nine Inch Nails and Metallica songs. In the bakery, though, I think the music would be based on Jade’s moods, so very eclectic.
