Just Add Magic: Mystery City


Just Add Magic is a family television series, loosely based on the book by the same name by Cindy Callaghan. This series has been televised since 2015. Kelly and her two best friends, Hannah and Darbie, find a cookbook in Kelly’s attic. They soon discover that the cookbook is filled with magical recipes. The first 2 seasons are about how the three friends, who become the protectors of the cookbook, solve various adventures involving magic.

The new season of Just Add Magic was released on January 17, 2020. This season is called Just Add Magic: Mystery City. In this season, the cookbook moves onto a new set of protectors in Bay City – Ish, Leo, and Zoe. Zoe used to live in Saffron Falls, where she met the previous protectors. Her mom, Erin Chau, moves to Bay City after getting married to Nick Selletti, Leo’s dad. They live in an apartment complex and Ish, their downstairs neighbor, becomes friends with them. At first, the three protectors aren’t sure how to use the cookbook, but they soon figure it out and then begin their own adventure.

Long ago, a magical ingredient that belonged to the Hamilton family to attract gold, was hidden by Ian Maddox, so that the ingredient wouldn’t fall into the wrong hands. In this generation, the Hamilton family tries to locate the ingredient, but the three protectors try to beat them to it. Who is Ian Maddox? Who will win this race? Who will get the magical ingredient in the end?

Throughout this adventure, the three protectors bond together and become best friends. This series is entertaining and filled with suspense, that can be enjoyed by the whole family. It is available on Amazon Prime. I would give this a 5 star rating because of how engaging the story is. I hope you enjoy this review and enjoy watching the season as much as I did.
