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.
Growing up in New York City I'd always known about the rumor of alligators in the sewer system, but now finding out that they are really dragons that live in the depths of the rail systems makes the possibilities of riding the Amtrak or subway even more exciting.
Once again Shanna Swendson has written a delightful tail about the magical craziness of NYC. As a New Yorker, now living in very rural USA, I can relate to both sides of her story. It is enchanting, light hearted and a great deal of fun, without all the darkness of today's most popular mystery fantasies. Ms. Swendson's writing style is engaging and Ms. Eva Wilhem's performance as first person narrator, heroine is spot-on. I recommend you start with book 1, Enchanted Inc., so as to become familiar with all the characters. Once you have finished book 1, you'll be hooked and on to book 2, Once Upon Stilettos, which will send you directly to book 3. Damsel in Distress; all three are equal fun and the plot remains the same but very, very different scenarios. You honestly Don't know where the stories are going until they get there.
So if what you are looking for is light reading, magic mixed with a touch reality and a touch of romance (glad to say no shades of gray here), I'd say at least the first 3 (I'm just now starting #4) of the Swendson Enchanted series are a delightful set of brain candy. It is written as "chick" stuff.
I'd recommend teens through adult for relaxation-fun, subway, lunch break, beach, Sunday reading.
fun fast funny..... easy listen. great series, cant say enough. I'm a Sam fan would love to see more of him.
Have a renewed interest in books after falling in love with audio books. I am listening to all different genres and exploring different authors.
I like this series for just simple, easy, fun. Not the most mentally challenging, but fun.
A frustrating ending but still a great addition to the series. While not a cliffhanger, the end makes you want to quickly pick up book 4, which I'm about to do as soon as I finish this review. Have really enjoyed this whole series so far both on audio and on kindle.
The further adventures of the "magically immune" Katie in New York City. Book 3. Magic, "danger" and romance. I like the first book the best so far, but this was a fun break. The narrator is perfect for this series, and the only reason I listen to the books instead or reading them. Listen to the sample & you'll be hooked.
I've already recommended this series to several of my friends
When everyone figures out that Grandma knew what she was talking about
I've grown to associate her voice as Katy
Hex in Texas
I am thoroughly enjoying this series
My name is Tessie. I'm a married, twenty-something bookworm who loves her kindle, her husband, and hot tea. ✝ Festina Lente.
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.
