Greta Lieder was amazing in the bakery. She excelled at it and her success was almost her downfall. Thinking she had it all including her own business and her hunky boyfriend, life had gone to her head. Who better to knock you down a peg than your boyfriend’s wife?
In a blink in an eye Greta’s life is turned upside down. She maybe cocky but she was not a homewrecker. But try telling that to a distraught witch who was hell bent on getting revenge.
The witch took the one thing Greta absolutely loved, her baking. She made a mockery of her house and turned it into a gingerbread house. For six years Greta has lived her life as authentically as she could until a handsome new logging contractor shows up into town and starts up his own business. Axe is taken with Greta from the first time he laid eyes on her.
How will Greta explain to him that she was cursed by a witch. Yup, that would earn her a one-way ticket to a padded room in no time. What a great first impression.

I am a sucker for fairytale retellings. This is a super cute twist on Hansel and Gretel. Greta was living life to the fullest, was very confident in a vain sort of way when one day, her boyfriend’s wife cast a spell on her. She went through all sorts of emotions and really tamped down her high opinion of herself. She works on her business and keeps everyone at arm’s length ensuring to not get too close to anyone, because boy oh boy, that spell is a doozy! Her business is booming, she has a wonderful best friend and a new boyfriend that she is completely smitten with. She has to tread lightly because she cares deeply for this people and doesn’t want them to think she needs to be committed, it’s kind of hard to bake while wearing a straight jacket, haha! As the story progresses some secrets unfold, and people aren’t always who you think they are. The story is witty but with some very sweet moments. This is a quick sweet story that will put a smile on your face.
Hello! I’m Jennifer Daniels, I live in Upstate NY with my husband and son. I’m a nurse by trade but, my arthritis does not allow to do my nursing anymore. My arthritis is called Ankylosing Spondylitis, it is a autoimmune disease with no cure. Anyways, one day I just started to write and then I went to the Writer’s on the River book signing. It was absolutely amazing and inspiring. So, a year later my debut book Opalla was released. My little family loves to be outdoors fishing, camping and going to the lake.
