    One thought on “Much Ado About Magic”

    1. FINALLY!!! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS BOOK FOREVER!!! JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT IT A SECOND AGO AND IT HAS MADE MY WHOLE DAY!!!! I CAN'T WAIT! Just finished!!! LOVED IT!!! Can I please have book 6 RIGHT NOW!!! Katie & Owen are so great together! So glad book 6 is out this year not too long of a wait to get back to my FAVORITE series!

    2. This is a good read as the previous books in this series have been. It's not my favorite and I find myself thinking that the plot line is occasionally too simplistic. As a supernatural type book, the books are pretty good. As a romance book it is less than ideal. I like all types of romance books from the steamy steamy novels to the very old fashioned 1800's little house on the prairie type stuff. This book makes me want to have any other two characters get together though because neither one se [...]

    3. Everything gets wrapped up in a bow in this (the fifth) book in the series. Not a lot of it makes sense. I think the author just took parts of Harry Potter and just reworked it here and there. In "Much Ado About Magic" we finally figure out who the big bad is that is trying to take out MSI Inc. and Merlin. Katie is back in New York in this one. She's happy to be back with her roommates and to be dating Owen. Honestly this book should have focused more on him since the majority of the plot was ab [...]

    4. I really love this book (and this series). It made me smile; I laughed and cried, too. :-)In this story, Katie is back in New York and off to try to get her old job back. But she finds that Spellworks has been busy while she was away when she runs into trouble on the subway. Once she finally made it to the office, (view spoiler)[she was told she was "late for the meeting" and soon enough, she learns that Merlin created a new job for her: so she gets a promotion and a raise! :-) (hide spoiler)]I [...]

    5. CANNOT WAIT!!!! I LOVE this series and was devstated when book 5 was not forthcoming. Thank you Shanna.Updated after reading. Great to see the end of the main story arc. As always I enjoyed Katie's practical views of the magical world. Would have like to see a little more interaction with characters from previous books but loved the addition of Nita. I especially loved how she had a plan in place at the hotel for moving celebs.

    6. So not to sound like a perv, but the relationship between Owen and Katie is moving unrealistically slow. We're not five books in and the couple hasn't passed the kissing stage of the relationship, even when they go out of town together they sleep in separate rooms and when she spends the night as his house which has only happened rarely and not in this book, she sleeps in the guest room. She's somewhere around 27 and he's 30. The idea that holding hands was a big step for them is kind of ridicul [...]

    7. This book was a long awaited 5th book in a series. I read the first four books 2 years ago and have been dying for this 5th book. So, finally it came! Yay!I love the characters in this book and the ending was awesome and not predictable!Everything else I have to say contains spoilers, so please skip this if you haven't read the series. Please scroll for the spoilers:I loved how the book started out and just dived into the main conflict. The characters are so much fun and have been well developed [...]

    8. rom Author’s website:To Do: Manage Magical Mayhem, Save the Company, Save the WorldKatie Chandler is back in New York and at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc. – and just in time. The city’s in the grip of a magical crime wave from spells that wizarding whiz Owen Palmer thinks look awfully familiar, and the rogue firm Spellworks is raising its profile in the magical world by selling protective amulets. It’s Katie’s job as the new director of marketing for MSI to fight this battle of pu [...]

    9. Initial review appears on chicklitworthreading.wordpress4 years. That's how long I've been waiting for the conclusion of Shanna Swendson's Enchanted, Inc. series. I missed Katie Chandler. I missed Owen Palmer. And I missed the myriad of characters populating Swendson's world. And just when I'd come to terms with not knowing how these characters would end up, Shanna Swendson's 5th book of the series pops up on NetGalley. And all was well with the world. In this final installment, Katie is at it a [...]

    10. I remember when I finished "Don't Hex with Texas" thinking, for the first time, 'she should self-publish the next book because the publishing houses are obviously too stupid to know a good thing when they see it'. So I was thrilled when I read earlier this year that Ms Swendson announced that she'd decided to do just that with the fifth book, Much Ado About Magic. I had it on my e-reader as soon as it was available, and finished it the same day.The story didn't disappoint - long held secrets rev [...]

    11. I love this series. (Yes, it's flaky and offbeat, but sometimes one needs that) This one wasn't my favorite in the set (that'd be "Once Upon Stilettos") but the plot drew me in as it went along. The ending took me COMPLETELY off guard - but not necessarily in a bad way. I'm curious to see where she takes the series next, though. [For those of you who read it: I'm guessing we're going to find out more about Sylvia Meredith and what goes on with Philip's family.] I must say, I loved getting Owen's [...]

    12. New Years Eve was quickly approaching. All around me people were proclaiming 2016 couldn't end early enough. The list of icons in theater and music who had died in the last twelve months felt staggering to so many, leading to chants of "Die 2016!" as well as the less common but passionately chanted "Protect Betty White!"I, apparently alone in my cynicism, thought of The Horror Elect, and shivered with fear. "We will miss you 2016," I said softly, "very shortly, in a few months if not weeks, we w [...]

    13. As a disclaimer I am reviewing the whole series (8 books) in this review because I read them all within a week, so while they are their own separate thing, I really view them as just one whole. I will likely cut and paste this review into each books review spot, with perhaps a comment or two about the individual book itself. That said, I really enjoyed this book, and this whole series. It was a bizarre modern magical romp through New York (and occasionally Texas). I really appreciated the corpor [...]

    14. This is very good story with some background on Owen's origins.The only thing that diminishes this story is the exceptional quality of its predecessor, Don't Hex with Texas (#4). It's very well crafted in many respects. I loved it when Katie gave Owen a virtual kick in the ass. The bonding between Katie and Owen's parents was great and it left me wanting for more. Also, some of the ice between Owen and his foster parents is melted away. The main plot was believable, well developed, and ended in [...]

    15. Wow! I loved this book and how all the action happened. Katie and Owen are great together, and FINALLY starting to make moves. We find out Owen's foster parents are really good and loving parents, that Merlin is extremely powerful, and that Owen is willing to sacrifice all to save the world (yet again). Nita is great! She is so much fun and such a wonderful friend. I felt all the characters have been pretty well defined by now so adding Nita to the group puts more oomph to the story.

    16. I liked this one more than the last couple. I still think Katie and Owen are the most boring couple on earth and the conflict/plot was straightforward with no real challenges to the characters, but it moved quickly and finally gave some answers to a story line that has dragged on way too long. Now, if only she could make Owen interesting, I'd be excited to read the next one.

    17. Katie ist zurück in New York nach vier Monaten in Texas und erschrocken darüber, was in dieser Zeit passiert ist. Idris ist zwar "in Haft" genommen worden von den MSI Leuten aber dennoch scheint hier jemand viel Mächtigeres seine Firma Spellworks zu kontrollieren. New York wird von einer regelrechten Welle an magischen Kriminalfällen heimgesucht. In den U-Bahnen bekommen Leute von jetzt auf gleich glasige Augen und fangen an ihre Mitmenschen zu bestehlen; Geldüberfälle stehen auf der Tages [...]

    18. I love this series and this book did not disappoint. It is a fun and light readI liked the twists and turns of the plot My only thing is I wish there was more romance. I can't wait to read the next one.

    19. This one in ways reminded me of the Harry Potter story line, but it was still its own thing. I really enjoyed this one because even though the characters are the same as the others, its story seemed to be a bit more developed.

    20. More adventures,for Katie and Owen. Turns out Owen's parents were revolutionaries and tried to take over the magical world. Or did they? Katie and Owen investigate and reveal the real criminals.

    21. I Hough I knew where this was going. I thought it was going to be formulaic but with all the twist and turns coming to the end I was surprised. Can wait to see Katie and the crew get into next.

    22. These characters continue to be fun and surprising. Each book has its own main conflict. I continue to enjoy reading them and will read the next one.
