From Goodreads:
Rosemary Bliss will do anything to get back her family's magical Cookery Booke.

That's why she challenges Aunt Lily to an international baking competition in Paris: If Rose wins, Lily agrees to return the cookery Booke that she stole. If Rose loses...well, the consequences are too ugly to think about.

But Lily isn't playing fair--she's using a magical ingredient to cheat. The only way for Rose to compete is for her to find magical ingredients of her own.

Together with her long-lost grandpa, his sarcastic talking cat, and a turncoat French mouse, Rose and her brothers race around Paris to find essential--and elusive--magical ingredients that will help her outbake--and outmagic--her conniving aunt.

She has to win or the Bliss Cookery Booke will be lost to her family forever.

Oh, these stories are so cute. This was like a reality show in a children’s fiction book. I wanted those Blisses to take their aunt DOWN. These magical stories are awesome and I can’t wait to recommend them to kids at the library. I’m almost ready to read book three!
