This was My first book I had read by Deborah Smith, but it will not be the last. I truly enjoyed the storyline and found every character in this book interesting. I felt as though I was back home in the Appalachian Mountains as the story unfolded the more engrossed I became with each characters viewpoint. And what an amazing story it is.

The only thing I wished we're different is that I read the Crossroads Cafe, first. As another reader suggested.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good storyline, who loves life, who believes in laughing and who enjoys stories that have a wonderful place to call home. I cannot wait till the next book.

Deborah Smith is a born storyteller with a graduate degree in magic! There is not another writer like her, and it's with immense gratitude to the universe that I bought this story the first second I knew it existed. No one writes eccentric characters like her, no one creates such a rich tapestry where the setting is a character itself. If you want a story guaranteed to make your heart sing, there's nobody better. She's a rich cake of a writer - treat yourself!

I would highly recommend that you read Crossroads Cafe before reading The Biscuit Witch, that way you can really understand the characters better....I loved the story and the way Deborah pulls everything together. I have read all of her books and so enjoy her style of writing. I look forward to the next book in this series. Thank you for writing another very entertaining book.

At every age, there is an author and her book to be savored. For me, at age thirteen, it was Margaret Mtchell's Gone With the Wind; in my twenties, it was Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged; and for the past two decades, it has been Deborah Smith. Her writing is witty and charming and inciteful. I first "met" her in A Place to Call Home. More recently, it was Crossroads Cafe which made me laugh and cry and introduced me to a world in which I would love to live. It was an immensely satisfying read....but I wanted more...And here it is with The Biscuit Witch A must read.

it's just not as satisfying a read as Crossroad Cafe. Since I've read this and The Pickle Queen I will read the final novella when it becomes available but I think a novel including all 3 stories ( The Biscuit Witch, The Pickle Queen and whatever the future one is named) would be my choice for the money.

Deborah Smith has a rare talent as a story teller: one that can bring any character to life and make the reader feel they know that character personally. She is able to connect with all types of personalities and make the character real.

She's done it again in The Biscuit Witch. Her characters are real, flawed, funny, and very human. Ms. Smith draws the reader in without the reader even realizing how caught up she is until it's time to put the book down and she doesn't want to. Plus, I suspect after read this book, there will be many people wanting to be a biscuit witch...I know I do!

The character Delta, whom we met in "Cross Roads Cafe" opens the story with a letter written in typical Delta style. In my mind I picture her as a Paula Dean type, only more outspoken. Her letter is to one Douglas Firth, a Scotsman destine to be our hero. A flawed hero, yes, but a true hero.

Set in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, this books introduces us to Tal and Eve, mother and daughter, heroes in their own right, and the events in our lives that can set in motion a series of moments that spin out of control until we learn from deep within ourselves how to put our lives back on the track they should have been on all along.

Food, love, family, guns, good and evil, fun animals, healing spirits, and biscuits. Sit down at the table for a bit to walk through the pages of the Biscuit Witch. You'll find yourself charmed, bewitched, and anxiously awaiting the next book in the series.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Biscuit Witch. I read The Crossroad Cafe in 2011 and really liked it. In fact I must do a reread some time. I was a little nervous that I wouldn't remember that story, however it didn't really matter as this book and the two that follow can easily be read apart from The Crossroad Cafe. However if you haven't read that one, please do - fabulous story.

I really liked Tal and her daughter Eve. They are on the run from Eve's father who has the intent to claim his paternity for all the wrong reasons. They detour into Tal's cousin's home town. Delta is not there, however there is a community of people ready to provide support for them. As they come into the town Tal and Eve meet a very persistent black bear - Tagger. He has a very sweet tooth.

Doug, the local vet, helps out with the Tagger situation, as does a few women from a farm that is also a women's refuge. Doug comes with an amazing array of animals. He has a goat that sleeps on the bed and thinks crayons are a special treat. He also has piglets, cats and dogs. Eve quickly finds herself at home with all these animals and is soon wanting to stay.

Tal has a special talent for baking biscuits, but also she has a way of picking up scent off people that tells her so much about them. Doug and Tal soon hit it off well with each other and romance is in the air. Normally I don't like romances to be instant, however this one is well written, whimsical and humorous with just that slight touch of magic. Loved it. It won't be long before I will be picking up The Pickle Queen, which is the next novella in a set of three.
