5.0 out of 5 stars Magic in a magic-free Texas town, 5 May 2008

This review is from: Don't Hex with Texas (Paperback)
This was a really good fun book! It's the fourth in the series about Katie Chandler, a Magical Immune who works for Merlin at Magic, Spells & Illusions Inc in New York. Except in this story Katie has returned home to Cobb, a small town in Texas and the home of her family. This is because the wizard Owen, who cares for Katie, was put in a difficult situation in an earlier book having to choose between her and others - and he chose her. Katie decided to leave New York and her job so as not to cause a problem for Owen. After all, magical things are unlikely to follow her to Cobb as it's a very unmagical town.

But now Katie's back home she starts noticing some odd things. Not only that, her mother seems to be seeing things that no-one else is - someone dressed up in strange robes doing odd dances outside the bank. Katie begins to wonder if Cobb is as free of magic as she previously thought and contacts Merlin to ask him about it. Merlin sends Sam the Gargoyle to check the town out - until Owen arrives.

Katie and Owen have to investigate the goings-on together and they soon uncover a culprit closer to home, some unusual family traits and that Owen's arch-nemesis Idris is behind it all. Can Katie and Owen eject the magic from Cobb and can Katie keep her various family members out of trouble?

The writing style of this book was great with events moving swiftly, characters appealing and quirky and a very slow-burn romance between Katie and Owen burning... slowly. The baddies weren't really bad, merely slightly naughty, and there were lots of opportunities for people to turn to a good path. This wasn't a dark book, the magic is a fun addition to the generally upbeat nature. I'll very much look forward to the next book in this series.

This book is amazing. Please buy it as if sales go up they'll publish a 5th one.

Its funny and a genuinely unique story about a normal girl living in a magical world. All the books are really worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving it Katie!, 8 Oct 2009
This review is from: Don't Hex with Texas (Paperback)
I've finished all four books and in record time. This book took a little getting used to simply because I'd become so engrossed in the New York fantasy world that Shanna had created. Here Katie expands a little as a character and I'm pleased to say that the novel still delivered laughs and charm.
Please support this author as her publishing company are considering not publishing the fifth book due to poor sales of the fourth.

P.S. I'm desperate to find out what happens with Katie and Owen so spend ya money!

5.0 out of 5 stars So Good!, 31 Mar 2014

I really enjoyed this instalment of the series! Katie is back in Texas, living at home and working in the family store again. The Magic follows her though. She thinks she's unique in her family and then, in this book, discovers she's not quite as unique as she believed! Plus they finally capture Idris but that doesn't stop the company so they still have work to do! I love that Owen goes AWOL from MSI to make sure Katie is alright, I really love Owen and Katie as a couple! I have to say, I really love Katie's granny as well! Can't wait to start the next book!

This review is from: Don't Hex with Texas (Paperback)
Have read all of the books in this fantasy series. Lots of magic, and light weight fun. Urban fantasy with romance, and a splash of Texas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic Inc., 5 Aug 2009
By 
This review is from: Don't Hex with Texas (Paperback)
Like the other reviewers I throughly enjoyed this book. Like the previous three books (which I would advice people to read) I found it well written, with laugh out loud moments, and was still kept spell bound throughout wandering how Katie and Owen were ever going to come to terms with their mutual attraction if ever. I find Owen's character adorable especially his blushes. In a market of over the top alpha males I found this refreshing. My only complaint is after searching for the next book in eager anticipation I found it had been put on the back burner, maybe never to be written due to lack of attention. However, this shouldn't put you off reading the series as it still has a feel good ending to it.
