Review - A Modern Witch

This e-book is $3.99 from Smashwords, Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Nobles Nook. Personally I love Smashwords because they help authors self-publish. Lots of hidden gems from them.

Book Description:
Can you live 28 years without discovering you’re a witch?

Lauren is downtown Chicago’s youngest elite realtor. She’s also a witch. She must be - the fetching spell for Witches’ Chat isn’t supposed to make mistakes. So says the woman who coded the spell, at least.

The tall, dark, and handsome guy sent to assess her is a witch too (and no, that doesn’t end the way you might think). What he finds in Lauren will change lives, mess with a perfectly good career, and require lots of ice cream therapy.

A MODERN WITCH is a full-length novel, 81,000 words or about 300 pages.

DEBORA GEARY is working on two more books expected out in spring 2011, if the kids don't spill any more water on her laptop.


Do you like all the new vampire/werewolf books that are on the market? Oh you know, like Twilight, Vampire Diaries and such? Well this book kicks all their butts. I know - don't judge a book by it's cover, but look at that cover! It pulled me right in, I have a bunch of stuff I was supposed to read first, but I just had to check it out. I figured I'd read a few pages and then do what I needed to do.

It sucked me right in. I literally couldn't put it down. My poor kids. I love all the characters, Nell a mama witch with I think 5 kids. Aervyn is the youngest at 4 and he is a MOST powerful witchling. Then her brother, Jamie is one of a set of triplets and a great witch trainer. Sophie is an earth witch with a great website, and her website is the reason Nell writes the summoning spell that finds Lauren in Chicago.

Jamie is sent to retrieve Lauren and while he is hot there are no sparks. But don't be turned off, sparks do fly in this book. When Jamie gets Lauren to Berkely to meet his family, she falls in love with everyone, Nell's 3 girls, Aunt Jennie who becomes her trainer and Moira - an old Irish witch who lives in Nova Scotia.

This novel works. The characters are realistic and engaging, the plot is strong and there aren't really any weak points in the story. The only thing I didn't like was that it ended. This is a group of witches that make you want to keep reading about them. I hear there is a 2nd novel coming soon. I can't wait to review it...no really, I can't wait! Come on Debora Geary!
