    Click your heels three times and say, "There's no place like Bloomies!" Katie Chandler's life is pure magic - literally. As an executive assistant at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., she's seen more than her share of fantastical occurrences. A mere Manhattan mortal, Katie is no wizard, but she's a wiz at exposing "hokum" pocus, cloaked lies, and deceptive enchantments. And she's fallen under the all-too-human spell of attraction to Owen, a hunky wizard and coworker. Owen, however, is preoccupied. Someone has broken into his office and disrupted top-secret files, and it reeks of an inside job.

    Story

    Enchanted Inc. is the first in the series from author Shanna Swendson. This is a fun chick series that is a mystery, an adventure, and a romantic comedy which is lighthearted, magical, and fun.

    There are characters you'll love and remember. The heroin, Katie, is “completely ordinary” in a universe of magic. This is a good thing.

    For adults the series is “Alice in Wonderland” and “Harry Potter” all rolled into one. It is a mystical romp and a fun escape. Read and enjoy.

    Twenty-six-year-old Rose Devlin may shop in the plus-size department, but she's never had a problem attracting men - with disastrous consequences. Rose has sworn off casual sex and moved to California to grow up, help her best friend, and make something of herself. When Rose asks the cute-but-geeky guy next door to help her land a job in high tech, she never expects to unearth his quiet strength, stunning accomplishments - and hidden talents.

    I truly liked Charlaine Harris and this series, until now.

    This book totally turned me off because it is DEPRESSING because of the child abductions.

    Then the book took a left turn with Tolliver, the brother. Totally unnecessary and a distraction.

    This could have been an excellent book in a very good series. The idea of the dead communicating from the grave was a great start to a new kind of paranormal experience in books.

    I'll try the next book BUT I'm not so sure that I will stick with the series. There are a LOT of buts...

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

But across town, other Avalonians are struggling to free themselves of the past: Isabel Kidd is fixing up her ramshackle house while sorting through the complications of her late husband's affair. Ava Catalina is mourning the love of her life and helping her young son grow up without his father. And Frances Latham eagerly anticipates the arrival of a little girl from China - unprepared for the emotional roller coaster of foreign adoption.

    Sentimental like "The Notebook" but did not leave me wanting more. As our heroine points out scrapbooking is for everyone from the business that wants to tell its story to the individual who wants to leave the family memories. Underneath those basic needs is a heartfelt story.

One of the witches snags a part as an extra, while Katie's firefighter boyfriend, Declan, acts as on-set security. Katie and her Aunt Lucy decide to stay out of the action, but after the movie's "fixer" fires the caterer, the Honeybee Bakery comes to the rescue, working their magic to keep the hungry crew happy.

Since she can shapeshift at will, she agrees to act as some extra muscle when her vampire friend Stefan goes to deliver a message to another of his kind. But this new vampire is hardly ordinary - and neither is the demon inside of him.

    Word has spread that contractor Mel Turner can communicate with the spirits of the dead, and she's having a hard time maintaining a low profile. She decides to embrace her reputation for the chance to restore a historic house that calls to her. The new owners, who hope to run a haunted bed-and-breakfast, want Mel to encourage the ghosts that supposedly roam the halls to enhance the house's paranormal charm. The catch: Mel has to spend one night in the house to win the project.

    Story

    Fun book that I would recommend.

    The new owners of historic Bernini House want to return it to its original state and make it into a haunted Bed and Breakfast. They have heard about Mel’s special gifts in communicating with the dead and are hoping that she can convince the ghost family to stay. Although Mel has met Annabelle, one of the children (ghost) that lives in the house, she has competition for the job. Avery Builders is also going to bid on the job.

    The catch is that both Mel and Josh Avery have to spend the night in the home to win the project. Whoever stays the longest wins the job. Graham, Mel’s boyfriend, doesn't like the idea of her spending the night with Josh and decides to join her. Both competitors end up with an entourage at the house because no one wants them to be alone with the ghosts.

    However, that problem all goes by the wayside when a body is discovered in the well. Mel tries to convince Annabelle to tell her what happened but isn't getting any answers. Instead the haunting becomes more menacing and Mel finds herself as a suspect in the murder.
