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.

Enjoyed this book.
Have finished all four in the series. Unfortunately, Audible does not have all the remaining books in the series... I wish!
I found this book almost by accident. Love the cover design. Once I listened to the story I was hooked. So far I've read the first 5 books in the series, and just started on book 6 (it came out earlier this week). Also read all her "extra" books that are sidelights to this series. A loving family, whether blood related or not. An online gaming world where people can pretend they are witches, and where real witches have even higher levels to play in. A "fetching spell" that pulls in an unsuspecting woman in Chicago. And there the story starts. Most of the story is outside the gaming world, though as Nell and her brother write code for the game, it does play an important part. Want a family? This one will take you in and make you part of it. I've listened to this book so many times I think my player may wear out soon.
I would have never picked the series up if it hadn't been on sale in audible and had high stars on both amazon and Goodreads. Boy, am I glad I started this series.
It's an amazing series of books centered around "modern witches," or some might prefer people with psychic power(ie telepathy) who can focus and control their magic through spells. Since they are modern witches they use the Internet to search for unknown witches.
Magic is important in this series, but rather more important theme throughout the series is self discovery of the people who got connected with the "Witch Central." Like my other favorite[Virgin River series, it is about community of wonderful people supporting each other. All the books just make me smile and feel warm. The first book is weak compared to the other books but it's a great introduction to the series.
I recommend the books for those whose favorite includes virgin river series and would like a little of warm magic in their lives.
This is a well written and well performed piece. It was so nice to hear about love and family and witchiness. There were several times in the book that I wished I could do magic like that! The book explained magic in a way that was very interesting and seemed sort of reality based. Magic or no, I sure wish I had a family like this!
I just finished listening to the book and i must say - oh wow!!
At first, it was quite slow and a bit...mundane? then the pace picked up and the storyline got more interesting. The last few chapters were 'unputdownable' for me (so much so, i skipped a cocktail party just to stay in and finish!)
The characters were a bit confusing at first and perhaps even a little staid, but as the story gained momentum, they sparked to life, and had you waiting to see what the next twist would be - kept getting a curveball!
I definitely recommend the book - it's romantic without being too sweet, has alot of fun moments (I especially like the character of Irvine - boy witch genius). It's a light read without being fluffy and puts a warm glow in your heart (without being syrupy mind you!).
The narrator was great and I loved the different voices she portrayed for the various characters. definitely moving on to book 2 now....
I was really pleased to listen to something light and fun! The narrator did a good job of all the different characters, and the quality of her voice was good.
The story leaves us with the possibility that some of the situations could actually exist, or could happen, and makes one consider the importance of our intuitions!
The story also makes us realize the potential of the internet!
Magic is all around the characters and it is great to get lost in their tales.The story and the narrator fit together perfectly. This book is a wonderful change from many fantasy books which rely heavily on death and destruction to move their storyline forward. I look forward to the next book in the series.
It was like going to a PTA meeting.
I'm not sure
I can't say, couldn't listen to it.
I enjoyed all the characters. They were engaging and fun. Maybe a little too good to be true, but a lovely book to listen to.
The story itself is very well written, and it comes to life with Ms. Pardee's narration. While the storyline kept me curious about what was happening, the narration is what kept me listening. Her mastery of voices, personalities, and the occasional external audio contextual contributions were fantastic. If I could grant the performance more than 5 stars, I would. This was one of the most enjoyable readings I've listened to because of the care Ms. Pardee took with individualizing each character's voice and audible mannerisms.
The characters are well developed, the foreshadowing is appropriate, and the outcomes amusing. Except for one trait Ms. Geary attributes to witches, she almost had me convinced they could exist and could actually do the magic she describes. Her research of alchemy and its integration into her witches' practices added authenticity to their behaviors. I do not want to spoil the story for others so I will refrain from describing the one part she included which shattered the imaginative reality I created for her characters.
I've devoured (read) the entire Harry Potter series, Twilight series, Hunger Games series, and listened to another book about witches (I'll have to look up the name of it) and enjoyed all of them if that gives you an idea of the genre of books I like to read or listen to for entertainment. I just started listening to the second book and expect this will be another series I add to the aforementioned list. This book does not try to utilize any other author's thoughts or schemes. I find this series to be a unique portrayal of the lives of witches in the United States. Oh, and Ms. Geary's descriptions of Berkeley's geography are not far off from reality either.
