Much Ado About Magic!!!

SSwendson-Much Ado About MagicI woke up this morning to an email from Casey.  In it, she tells me SHANNA SWENDSON IS SELF-PUBBING THE FIFTH KATIE CHANDLER BOOK!!! Okay, so maybe I didn’t have to shout that, but seriously, I’m ridicuously happy that she’s finally putting it out there.

To Do: Manage Magical Mayhem, Save the Company, Save the World

Katie 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 public perception while Owen and the other wizards try to uncover what’s really going on.

What Katie doesn’t realize is that her idea to stage a showcase for MSI’s magical achievements is playing right into a devious plot more than three decades in the making. Now Katie has to do damage control that has nothing to do with marketing. To save the magical world, she’ll have to prove who the real enemy is, and doing that will require digging deeper into Owen’s mysterious past than he wants anyone to go. If she fails, she not only stands to lose a magical war, but she could also lose the man she loves.

The fourth novel, Don’t Hex with Texas, ended on what seemed like such a cliff hanger, that I’ve been keeping my eyes open for the fifth book for a couple of years now. Sadly, this was one of those series that the publisher ended too early, but let’s hope that Much Ado About Nothing is just the beginning and we’ll get even more of Katie and Owen (because seriously, I need me some more). *grin*

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. YEEEAAAAAA! Yes, you did have to shout! I thought this series was done for. Like you said, it ended on a cliffhanger and I couldn’t believe I wouldn’t be reading more about Katie, Owen and everyone else. This is a really cute, light, fun series and I can’t wait to pick up the next book. Okay, just looked at her site and it’s going to be digital only. Here’s hoping for a hard copy!
