A Modern Witch by Debora Geary

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 provides a completely different twist on magic and witches in modern day than I'd ever read before. I really enjoyed it and cannot thank @kiwiria enough for introducing me to it!

It's a quick and delightful read and while you can certainly accuse it of being just a tad too happy with its ending, it doesn't matter - it's a guilty pleasure, except I don't feel the least bit guilty! It is such a sweet story and I love all the characters.

I know the author has written 7 book in total in the series so far, and while I haven't gotten around to reading any further yet I definitely will. I think the second book, A Hidden Witch, will serve me very well in the upcoming ReadAThon in April.

- UPDATE - I did indeed read the second book at the Readathon and it was just as good as the first one, this is really a series I'm growing very fond of and will recommend any with the fancy for some updated witchcraft :)
