Good morning! Today, I’m thrilled to be hosting a stop on the Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour for Due East, Beasts, and Campfire Feasts, the 7th book in the Spells and Caramels mystery series by Erin Johnson. This was not my favorite in the series, but it was still really good and obviously leading up to something big in book 8!

A hostile town. A mountaintop mission. Will their magic save the day or spoil the pudding?
Imogen thought escaping the king’s wrath would give her everything she wanted. But her relationship with Prince Hank is tougher than an overcooked flan and the welcome they get on Badlands Island is far less than friendly. Accused of kidnapping, Imogen proposes they prove their worth by traveling through a deadly forest to retrieve a magical herb at the top of a mountain…
Forced to take her baking skills on the road, Imogen and her friends must navigate monsters, secrets, and a possible traitor. And the little matter of the impending typhoon is seriously compressing their timeline…
With the storm and creatures closing in, can Imogen complete the quest or will her next meal be her last?
Due East, Beasts & Campfire Feasts in the seventh book in the Spells & Caramels series of paranormal cozy mysteries. If you like amateur witch sleuths, unbreakable friendships, and fascinating magical creatures, then you’ll love Erin Johnson’s page-turning adventure.
As I said above, this is not my favorite book of the series, but I still enjoyed it quite a bit. This book find our hero and heroine in totally unfamiliar territory in the Badlands. Hank is trying to deal with all the emotional baggage of being disowned by his father and the fact that Imogen had lied to him about Horace, among other things. This puts a strain on his relationship with Imogen. While it’s always difficult to see a relationship struggle, I actually enjoyed this part of the series because it showed that relationships take work to keep going.
We met new friends in this book and managed to secure a place in the Badlands for our crew outside of Horace’s Army. The settings and descriptions of people were done well. The subplot was entertaining and I didn’t know who the real villain was until he was revealed.
I’m looking forward to book 8 in the series! If you wish to read the series, I highly recommend starting with the first book, Seashells, Spells, and Caramels and reading them in order. You’ll be lost as to how some relationships developed and who’s connected to whom otherwise.
