Title: A Modern Witch
Author: Debora Geary
Review: The beginning of the book was a bit confusing, but as I read I understood more and more what was going on. The chat room sections I didn't really care for at all. I think the amount of characters confused me, especially with names like Nell, Nat, Jeanie and Jamie. The story was sweet, but I had to work to keep the characters straight in my head. I come from a large family and I understand the amount of people that entails, but I do know them personally so I can keep them straight.
Lauren and Nat were great friends and the gallons of ice cream they ate sounded like me and my friends. There was lots of love in this story, not just romantic love, but family love. The siblings, the aunts, the other family members and friends made for an interesting group of characters, but like I said before it was a bit too many for one book. I find fantasy is big on many characters and I don’t like to work that hard to follow a story line. I may be a lazy reader.
I found parts of the story wound drag and I would put the book down for awhile. I did feel that it was long, almost too long. The end was worth the journey, but I almost didn’t make it. The writing was good, and the story was different, but maybe less going on in only one book next time.
If you enjoy paranormal stories and lots of great and varied characters you may like this book. Fantasy is not really my thing, but I do enjoy paranormal.

Synopsis: 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.
