Enchantment, Inc.

Hex and the city

Shanna Swendson has combined urban chick-lit with magical fantasy in a delightful froth of a story. Katie Chandler, a Texas transplant, rooms in New York City with her best buds from back home, and struggles to adjust. Her boss is a nightmare, and she can't seem to adjust to the quirkiness of big-city life, until an out-of-the-blue job offer lands her in the offices of MSI, Inc, the premier purveyor of magical spells. Her quirks are now assets, and her coworkers include a handsome wizard, a flotilla of winged fairies, and a stone gargoyle that shows up all over town. Can she help MSI combat the competition? And can she choose between the handsome hunk and another attractive prospect?

The plot is fun and well-executed. Katie and the gang are solid, and there are several books more in the series. This is a solid G-rating, with some PG if you follow her thoughts, and plenty of room for romantic development. If you're looking for Literature, this is not it. If you are looking for a fun tale to while away an afternoon off, you could do much worse. A total comfort read.
