To-do: Stop the bad guys. Rescue the wizard. Find the perfect outfit for New Year's Eve.
At last, Owen Palmer, the dreamboat wizard at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., has conjured up the courage to get Katie Chandler under the mistletoe at the office holiday party. But just when it looks like Katie has found her prince, in pops her inept fairy godmother, Ethelinda, to throw a wand into the works. Ethelinda's timing couldn’t be worse. A plot hatched by MSI's rogue ex-employees, Idris and his evil fairy gal pal Ari, threatens to expose the company's secrets - and the very existence of magic itself. Even worse, it could also mean the end of Katie's happily-ever-after. Now Katie and Owen must work side by side (but alas, not cheek to cheek) to thwart the villains' plans. Braving black-magic-wielding sorceresses, subway-dwelling dragons, lovelorn frog princes, and even the dreaded trip to meet Owen's parents at Christmas, Katie and her beau are in a battle to beat Idris at his own sinister game. All mischief and matters of the heart will come to a head at a big New Year's Eve gala, when the crystal ball will drop, champagne will pour, and Katie will find herself truly spellbound.

I'm a avid listener, 1000+ in my collection. Some of my favorite series includes: Charlaine Harris's Sookie S., J.K's Harry P. and K. Armstrongs Otherworld. Single books T. Clancy's Hunt for Red October and S. Meyer's The Host.
Audible has given us the first three books in this series and I have listened to them all. I find them light and quirky. If you like Molly Harpers books, you may like these. I hope Audible will give us the rest of this series.
Enchanted Inc. is the third 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.
This dang series. It is so good and I'm so hooked.
Katie and Owen's kiss under the mistletoe.
Christmas at Owen's foster parent's house. Owen is such a complex character and I love learning more about the sexy, powerful wizard who's so shy.
Yes. I bought it and finished it in the same day. I am so hooked on this series. The ending of this one had me throwing money at Amazon and Audible for the next book.
Katie was much better in this book and Owen became even more complex and I'm still swooning. (Don't tell my husband! lol). He really is a wonderfully developed character and I'm dying to read more.
If the author had kept track of events, instead of trying to be humorous. The story had so much potential and I have kept listening hoping that it would get better, but there is more sarcastic wit than actual believable storyline. Here you have a powerful wizard, and a witty female character, and they fall into one death defying situation after another, only to come out of it and start making silly jokes, and completely forget the fact that they are in danger.
The most disappointing thing about the story was the need to make the lead character's only focus be dating, falling in love, and clothes. Here you have a story of supposed good v evil, but It reads more like a cheerleaders battle of the sexes. The lead characters are constantly facing danger, but are oblivious to strange when it is in front of them. They walk into situation that would make anyone suspicious, let alone people that are supposed to be in a battle against a magician. It just became too junior high for me, this is a grown woman, she should sound like a grown woman.
I am not sure, most of it would start with so much potential and end up sounding ridiculous. I can't say I have a favorite scene.
Disappointment, and frustration.
author of Lowcountry Legend's series
In this one, the friends finally get pulled into the know about magic. This one was funnier, I have to say, the new gargoyles, and well, the dragon whisperer bit was just hysterical! They are getting better.
To put it simply, I'm not really crazy about the main character. She comes off very naïve, a little bit simple and blames herself for things clearly not her fault. If it was done once or twice, okay but it was through out the book
Which adults who aren't religious nuts date for weeks without having sex? What kind of woman in her right mind (spoiler alert) leaves her 'true love' because she thinks she might be getting in the way of his job? I was patient through the first two books, but seriously, no sex? Not at all believable.
The boyfriend, Palmer. His voice conveys the various sides of his character.
The protagonist. What an idiot.
