|Plot Summary of Sorcery and Cecilia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot|
|"Sorcery & Cecilia centers around two friends, Kate & Cecy, in Regency England. Kate was lucky enough to be sent off with her Aunt Charlotte and cousin Georgina for her first London Season. Well, her best friend Cecy thought she was lucky. Cecy was stuck in the country with her domineering Aunt Elizabeth and her brother Oliver. But Kate would like nothing more than to be at home rather than have to endure her London season as a wallflower. But when Kate accidentally triggers a trap set for the mysterious Marquis of Schofield, she becomes quite popular. Unfortunately the odious Marquis refuses to answer Kate's questions about who the witch was who tried to poison her and why she hates the Marquis so intensely.
Meanwhile, back in the country, Cecy is hot on the trail of the intolerable James Tarleton, who seems determined to spy out her beautiful new neighbor & friend at every opportunity. She is sure that James is up to no good and also suspects him of planting the magical herb bag under her brother Oliver's bed.
James fobbs her off with some haphazard excuse and keeps on following her neighbor. But Cecy is not one to give up so easily and sneaks into Sir Hilary Bedrick's estate and "borrows" a book on magical bags. Surprisingly enough, Cecy turns out to have a marked talent for creating the bags and quickly makes bags of protection for Kate and Oliver. But what the two girls don't realize is that their innocent actions have brought them to the attention of both Sir Hilary and Miranda Thomas, the witch who tried to trap Kate. Neither one of them knows what is going on, but they recognize villains when they see them. Despite James & Thomas' best efforts, they cannot keep Cecy and Kate from rushing headlong into danger and solving their problems, even if they didn't ask for their assistance!
