Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she?s a little too normal to make a splash in the big city.

I knew I wasn't going to want to put this one down as I was turning to the second page! Who knew being ultra-ordinary could turn out to be so interesting?

I share Katie's crush on Owen - the second he started blushing I was a goner. Why is he so bashful? What's up with his background? More Owen, please!

Anyway, the book has a few small flaws (the Mr. Mervyn character didn't work seemlessly, and a little more detail about the background of the magical world would have been nice), but they really don't detract from the story or from the fun of reading it.

Chick lit meets an inverted version of Harry Potter, and it really works. After this it was really hard to wait for the next books!

I rarely ever give a book the highest praise possible, but this book was funny, emgaging, silly & so make you feel good that you wanted to laugh, cry & shout all at the same time!

OK, I'll be trite and say that this book is ENCHANTING! The characters are so charming (pun intended) from the normal roommates to Katie's dreadful blind dates. Jeff the frog stalker, Owen the geeky wizard, Ari and Trix the fairy chicks, Sam the gargoyle...I could go on but I've given enough away. Pleased to say that there are at least 3 books so far.

Transplanted Texan Katie Chandler isn't sure what to make of New York City. She sees fairies and elves on the subway and a gargoyle that only sometimes perches on a local church. At first she ignores the mysterious e-mails about a job opportunity at a company called MSI but finally agrees to a meeting. She learns that MSI stands for Magic, Spells, and Illusions and that she is valuable to the company because she is immune to magic of any kind. Intrigued by the job and a handsome wizard named Owen, Katie signs on. Before long, she has come up with a slew of innovative ideas and drawn the attention of the head of the company, Merlin himself, who is dealing with a former prodigy gone bad. Swendson offers a quirky twist on supernatural powers, suggesting that not having any can actually be an asset. This appealing novel offers a charming cast of characters and a clever premise, and readers will hope that Katie's skills will be needed in New York City again soon.

In March 2011, I had a house fire and lost everything. I was then diagnosed with PTSD. Because of it, I couldn't read anymore without getting dizzy, nauseous, or understand what I had just read. For 10 months I tried to read as I LOVED reading books and missed it. I ended up picking up this book and thank the heavens, it was light, airy, funny, and all around enjoyable..I was able to read it all the way through! My first book since the fire & PTSD!!! This book has the right mix of fun, romance, yet a good story line. Classic chic-lit without any mush! It's definitely a different twist on a small town girl moving to the big city and her take on life and how she sees things!

I so Love this author. I have all her books and waiting and hoping for her movie deal to go through and for book 5 to come out. If you love fantasy, humor and chick-lit this is the book for you. Meet an ordinary woman in a fantastic career.
