Don't Hex with Texas: A Novel

Everything's bigger in Texas - including romance, magic, and danger! Katie Chandler has fled fast-paced Manhattan and returned home to a simpler life, working at her family's feed-and-seed store in Cobb, Texas. In a painfully selfless gesture, Katie had left the sexy wizard Owen Palmer to battle his demons in the magical realm–after all, Katie just seemed to attract evil, which only made Owen's job a lot harder.

Publisher's Summary

Everything's bigger in Texas - including romance, magic, and danger!

Katie Chandler has fled fast-paced Manhattan and returned home to a simpler life, working at her family's feed-and-seed store in Cobb, Texas. In a painfully selfless gesture, Katie had left the sexy wizard Owen Palmer to battle his demons in the magical realm–after all, Katie just seemed to attract evil, which only made Owen's job a lot harder. But now it seems that trouble has followed her home: Despite the fact that Merlin, Katie's old boss at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has assured her that Cobb is free of enchantment, (magically speaking), Katie begins to notice curious phenomena. Cobb is being plagued by a series of inexplicable petty crimes and other devilish mischief, and after her experiences in Manhattan, Katie knows "unauthorized magic" when she sees it. As this new darkness strikes deep in the heart of Texas, Owen appears (literally) to investigate. Now Katie's friends and family must show the bad guys why it's bad luck to hex with Texas, while Katie and Owen combine their strengths like never before to uncover a sinister plot before evil takes root in the Lone Star State.

    Story
    "Let's meet Granny & the rest of the family"

    Now we meet Katie's family and her memorable Granny who is a hoot. Love Granny!!! Enchanted Inc. is the fourth 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.

    "Stupid!"

    I listened for about an hour (forced myself) and never went back. What an awful waste of a perfectly good credit!

    Story
    "Enjoyable Read, Good Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Don't Hex with Texas the most enjoyable?

    The original story (even though you can see influences from Harry Potter/LOTR throughout the series).


    Have you listened to any of Eva Wilhelm’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only in this series, she is very consistent with her performance, very easy to understand.

    I recommend this book for people who are looking for some lighthearted fantasy with a twist of romance. .


    What other book might you compare Don’t Hex with Texas to and why?


    All the Enchanted, Inc. books reminded me for Janet Evanovich Plum series, but this one even has Grandma.


    Any additional comments?

    After living in Texas for 25 years there were a few things that I really got a kick out of about Texas.

    Story
    "Fun and Silly"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This continues the story of Owen and Katie. I wish there were more angst between them to build their relationship, but they basically just pick up where they left off, except they're in Texas. I'm afraid to say that I may have found an example of two boring characters as protagonists in a series. I still like them, but they sure aren't very interesting people when they're together. They act more like brother and sister than boyfriend and girlfriend.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Seeing Katie in her home town.


    What about Eva Wilhelm’s performance did you like?

    She does accents well.


    Do you think Don't Hex with Texas needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I'm not sure. It could end where it is and be fine.
