Once Upon Stilettos by Shanna Swendson

I have no idea why it has taken me so long to write this review. Sheer laziness? Probably.

Anyways, more Katie, more Owen (yum), more magic and mayhem!

Book blurb shamelessly grabbed from Shanna's site:
Click your heels three times and say,

“There’s no place like Bloomies!”

Katie Chandler’s life is pure magic--­literally. As an executive assistant at Magic, Spells, and Illusions, Inc., she’s seen more than her share of fantastical occurrences. A mere Manhattan mortal, Katie is no wizard, but she’s a wiz at exposing “hokum” pocus, cloaked lies, and deceptive enchantments. And she’s fallen under the all-too-human spell of attraction to Owen, a hunky wizard and coworker. Owen, however, is preoccupied. Someone has broken into his office and disrupted top-secret files, and it reeks of an inside job. CEO Merlin (yes, the Merlin) and taps Katie and her special ability to uncover the magical mole.

Keeping her feelings in check while sleuthing alongside Owen, Katie is shocked to discover that her immunity to magic is waning, putting her in grave danger. Soon she’s surrendering to the charms and enchantments of everyone and everything around her, including a killer pair of red stilettos. Katie must now conjure up her natural instincts to get to the bottom of the break-in, regain her power, and win the wizard of her dreams.

If you liked Enchanted, Inc., Once Upon Stilettos is a must-read. If only for more Owen! And there is some in here. And most likely more in the following books (there WILL be following books, right Shanna? Right?!) I just love the voice here and the antics that Katie gets into. And her relationship with Owen. And how she deals with temporarily losing her magical immunity. I also loved how it was explained. Made lots of sense.

I got a copy from the library since when I tried buying it, no one had it. *pout* So I'll have to get a copy sometime soon. It's just a wonderful book. Light, not not too light. And cute and sweet and funny and magical. With a bit of romance thrown in for good measure.
