Can you live 28 years without discovering you're a witch?
Lauren is downtown Chicago's youngest elite realtor. She's also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches' Chat isn't supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least.
The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn't end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.
A Modern Witch is a full-length novel, 81,000 words.
The next two books in the series, A Hidden Witch and A Reckless Witch, are coming soon to audio.>
Debora Geary is working on several more audiobooks expected out in 2012, if the kids don't spill any more water on her laptop.

I usually like a more erotic story but this one was great. Entertaining story that progressed at the perfect pace so you got thoroughly engaged.
Looking forward to more books by this author.
At the top of the list and I have read many audio books.
Jamie's coming face to face with his destiny
Her voice was easy to listen to, did not grate on the nerves
I have read all the books in the Modern Witch series and found the audio book just as good. It held my interest throughout the book. Iam looking forward to the others in the series going audio.
Great, relatable characters brought together through majic. Its a wonderful yarn about discovery and the unlocking of gifts, and finding a new suportive community that encourages greatness!
I hope the rest of the series is available in audible format.
Magickal, Fantastic, Entertaining
Aerwyn - the most powerful, littlest, and lovable witch!
Moira - great accent!
The celebration at the end was wonderful - wish I'd been there!
I just finished listening to A Modern Witch, and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed revisiting all these folks again for the first time. Listening to the book was every much as pleasurable as when I read it, and I can’t wait until the next audio book comes out! I have always been one for re-reading favorite books, and each time around I notice things that I missed in the first reading. Thank you for making this book available as an audio book, Debora!
I sat through this entire book thinking it had to get better. It didn't. When one of the main characters is supposedly a 4 yr old "witchling" who can't understand why adults are "nekee" but does understand how cells separate in a woman's womb and create twins what the heck did I expect. This was just a particularly lame book with not a lot to offer. The narrator seemed to be constantly amused by something that the listener just wasn't in on. Do not waste your time.
I enjoy mysteries, wrapped with violence and sprinkled with romance.
I don't think so. This was a series that I was interested in trying, but I found the lack of a plot, drama or a crisis makes the story...LAZY.
As I was following story's slow storyline I started to ask, "Hey, Is she going to hook up with the guy, is this the plot?" The love connection in the story isn't even a motivating force for the main character.
I USE THIS BOOK TO PUT ME ASLEEP AT NIGHT!
This was my first and last.
Any scene with the kid.
Goodness I hope not. It would be cancelled after the second episode.
EVANOVICH ROMANCES tend to be simple, slow and predictable. This is how Geary's book compares except most of Evanovich's romances are better!
I have all of Debora Geary's books and love them all. With almost all of the books out today, violence and near death are the norm. With these books, they are about family, fun, and solving problems without near and bloody death around every corner. The characters are like people you would know and quirky. GREAT easy reads.
I couldn't even finish this book. The narrator sounded like she was reading to children!! It was a chore just to listen for a few minutes at a time. I kept hoping it would get better since this is the type of book I usually like and actually did listen to half of it but couldn't take the condescending irritatingly "sweet" narrator.
I have read the ebook a couple of times and loved it each time. When I saw that it was available on Audible I just had to get it to see if the narrator would bring the book to life just like Debora Geary did when writing it. I was not disappointed Ms Pardee puts a lot of emotion in her reading and matches the tone of the writing, Great Job!! Also have A Hidden Witch and just downloaded To Have and To Code and A Reckless Witch.
I did my best to stay with the book but after perserving for 5 hours, I have decided to abandon it. I cannot take all the gushing, touchy, feely dialogue. Do people really talk like this in any reality? This is too sickly sweet for me.
Might be an ok book, if Ms Geary could get on with the story and stop talking about how everyone is feeling.
I was a bit skeptical of this book at first. I found some of the "effects" like the typing sound every time the characters enter their chat room to be very dated and grating. But I soon got drawn into the characters and story and forgave the minor flaws.
"Needs a good Spell to make it better!"
A less predictable and saccharine plot may have helped.
Not a lot to be honest
Perhaps a different narrator may have helped a tad.
Disappointment - waste of money & time. Shame as this is the only book and I have got quite a few downloaded that have made me feel this way.
"A feel good listen."
One of the nicest books I have listened to. Full of happiness and joy. With the narrators voice also full of laughter and emotion.
All of it really several really sensitive moments and chapters.
The four year old mini witch boy was my favorite character.
The time that Lauren visited a special school and found a way forward for the autistic boy.
I enjoyed the Supernatural aspect but that was about it. The story was boring. Not nearly enough action or story.
Motherly comforting ok
"Geeky Witches - What's Not to Like?"
This book had me hooked already within the first five minutes, when I discovered that at least some witches in this universe wrote witching spells using computer code! As an IT consultant myself, this was something that immediately appealed to me and I fell instantly in love.
Fortunately the rest of the book more than lived up to my expectations. Granted, it doesn't have the most complex or innovative plot, but it's just a genuinely pleasant book. I loved the characters, and their antics had me laughing out loud so often that my husband started wondering what was up. I fell in love over and over with each new situation, and found myself tearing up from their happiness more than once.
This is a true comfort book, and I have a hard time remembering when I've last fallen THIS hard for a new book. It's an instant favourite.
"Great women's easy listen - with magic!"
I have read the book a number of times, but this audio version, with great voices that the narrator makes different for each character, has made me see some conversations in a different way and really appreciate the nuances of the story. I have listened to it twice already and have now bought all of Debora Geary's books on kindle and on audio (can't wait for the rest to be released on audiobook) as they are a wonderful "feel-good" read!
"A very pleasant suprise"
Loved this storyline , such a great original plot narrated very well by Martha. Will be buying the next book
