Book Inspection: Don't Hex With Texas by Shanna Swendson

Plot Sketch: Katie has just gone home to Cobb, Texas for a bit with her family. Low and behold, magic ensues and she finds a local wizard. Sam comes in for reinforcements and I'm stopping there before I give up too many details. Being the fourth in a series doesn't allow me to tell you much without spoiling the rest!

Verdict: I heart it! I know that Ms. Swendson wants to write another in the series, but from a readers point of view, I have love for the way this book ends. It gives me hope. Again, I love Shanna's writing style, it's just so easy to read. I really recommend you read these books. They're the ultimate paranormal chicklit!

Hi Shesten -- I loved Enchanted Inc., although I havent' found the rest of the series here in the Philippines. Now I want to hunt them down so I can read them!
