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.

    "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.

    I like this series as something to escape from the stress of my job. It is fun to listen to on my way home from work. I still am not a fan of the narrator of this series.

    What made the experience of listening to Don't Hex with Texas the most enjoyable?

    I liked meeting more of Kate's faimly


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

    I enjoyed Eva's performance. I find her easy to follow and listen too but my sister who does not follow the story found her voice annoying but again - I enjoyed her.

    I like the story idea, but sometimes the author does not put in as much effort. Or so I think. I am ever hopeful

    "More Romping good magical fun"

    Once again Shanna Swendson dose not disappoint. New York magic follows our heroine home to Texas where she learns she is not the only special one in her family... Captivating twists and turns, smiles and great imagination. A fun listen for anyone who loves magic.

    "Better than expected!"

    I think the title threw me off. I didn't see how the story could be good in Texas. But it was great!

    "Another Fun Read"
    If you could sum up Don't Hex with Texas in three words, what would they be?

    The Family, too?


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

    It reminds me of the Juliet Blackwell series about the good witch who owns a vintage dress shop. Because that series also deals with a modern day woman confronting magic and they are lighthearted fun reads, too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The reappearance of the Red Shoe


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ?

    "Interesting. Hooked."
    Would you listen to Don't Hex with Texas again? Why?

    Yes! Loved it!


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

    I've read the other books in the series and she is getting better.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my favorite book of the series so far. I loved meeting Katie's family, especially her Granny. It reminded me of my extremely close knit family and the tiny town we live and farm in. The character developments were interesting and the plot moved a little quicker this time. It didn't feel like it was creeping along for no reason like in parts of the previous books. I can't wait to read the next one!

    Really first rate series. Good fast paced story line with a good insight into Katie's family. Some nice twists that were unexpected & finally a bit of real romance.
