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.

The story captivated me. This is a deviation from the type of books that I read and was entertaining. I listened to the sample and was sucked in. I have enjoyed the journey of the characters.
I loved the way that the author blended what I have typically considered "witchy" behavior with modern and "today" types of activities. It had a perfect love story, and I am deciding if I want to consider the rest of the series or not.
There were so many for me personally. But I'd say the pre-cog experience with Nat and Jamie. And then the part when the autistic boy was given a weighted vest. I literally cried and I just kept telling myself "It's just a book, calm down." But I'm very involved with my reads especially when they are audio.
I liked all of them. It would be hard to pick just one.
I did listen to it voraciously, but due to some of the more emotional parts I did have to just stop it once and a while.
I liked the book. I would recommend it to others.
i thought i was going to have fun romantic romp of a story but nothing really happens in this book. its all happy happy happy and i never cared about any of the characters. lots of folks seem to like this series, it just did nothing for me. can't finish it.... narrator was fine.
Sickly sweet and completely predictable. I've read lots of this genre, and I know a lot of it is just romance books with a twist, but still. This book is definitely NOT worth the time to listen to… just awful.
I am currently an urban fantasy devotee. From Just fantasy to romance.
I found this to be a very compelling slice of life story. While I would not normally expect to enjoy such a story, Debora Geary kept it interesting and compelling throughout, I have an exceedingly difficult time putting it down, and lost sleep over listening to it. The love story was actually for secondary, but important, characters. The main story was a "fish out of water" story, and as I mentioned before, very compelling. Even if you think you do not like this type of story, I would still recommend it as it is a very enjoyable read.
I really enjoyed the narrator and how she was able to capture each character. Some she captured better than others and I got a little lost at "who" was talking sometimes. This is a feel good book
Moira's voice. I love Moira. Really she does a pretty good job of giving most of the character's their own voices.
I am pretty sure becoming a mom given me super leaky eyes because there were many parts that made me cry. The author does well to really draw the heart in even with a lack of discernible plot.
If you are looking for a break from serious books and themes, then this series is a feel good cheery time!
By night I'm in a lab, by day I'm ... usually still in a lab.... Thank God for audiobooks!
Here's what you need to know if you are debating about whether or not to buy this book.
1. Do you like the *friendships* in Nora Roberts' books?
2. Do you like Chicken Soup for the Soul?
3. Do you prefer your audiobooks to have nothing more than a deep kiss here, a coy look there, and nary a swear word in sight?
4. Do you live in Northern California, Oregon, or Washington, or find yourself drawn to people that are from these states?
If you answered yes to all of these, you will probably adore this book. If you answered yes to 1-3, you will probably really enjoy this book.
Still unsure? Let me give you some more details.
The narrator does not have an incredible range of voices, but she does have the perfect cadence. Her voice hypnotized me without putting me to sleep, and her slow, careful reading caused me to slowly and carefully soak up the world within this audiobook.
The plot is pleasant and without suspense. A woman is told she is a witch after stumbling across an internet spell, and she meets a witch family and starts training with them. Most of the characters in this story are family or lifelong friends, so there is an undertone of affection in almost all of the interactions. The second book introduces a few characters that do not always get along or like everyone, so if you need a little conflict I would recommend that you skip to that one. If you're looking for a cheerful, relaxing listen that will give you a dose of positivity, you've found it.
Such a wondrous, positive, smiley kind of story. I am looking forward to the rest of them. Worth the credit. It is interesting and lighthearted.
I would definitely recommend to a friend! The story is fun and touching without being sappy and I love the idea of technological witches.
When Nat walked in while Jamie was helping Lauren and had a precog blowing Laurens channels wide open. He was so stunned he completely forgot what he was doing and knew she was his future.
I loved the fact that she had a voice for each character that was so distinct that you knew who was speaking even if they didn't say who it was. She did a magnificent job of bringing the characters to life!
This book made me smile, laugh, and tear up. I fell in love with it.
