On the eve of her 27th birthday, Josie Goodwin is feeling harassed. Her boyfriend Will has become a donkey-loving hippy and her best friend Lara has baby-brain. She desperately needs to find the perfect location for a film shoot, or her career may implode. Her eccentric grandma has always said that Josie will inherit a book of spells on her birthday, but since she doesn’t believe in magic, nothing will improve; or will it?

3.75 Stars

Josie’s life is slowly collapsing. Her boyfriend quit his job to grow vegetables and work with a donkey charity, her mom is engaged to a tattooed truck driver, her best friend’s baby never leaves her hip and her job is on a steady path downwards. Her grandma has told her all of her life that on her twenty-seventh birthday she will become the next family witch. But magic doesn’t exist does it?

Put a Spell on You is a fun magical chick lit romp. The characters were well fleshed out and the pacing was on target. Josie had a heart and was looking for ways to better not only her life, but the lives around her. It was actually refreshing to have a female lead not work in journalism like almost every other London based chick lit. There were a few things that detracted my enjoyment of the story – Josie was desperate for a proposal and at times it made her character unsympathetic and there were a lot of supporting characters and some blended into each other. Those few issues aside this was a nice change of pace from the usual summer pool side read. The addition of the magic, which in some books is a detractor, really built this story. This was a cute quick read, that will be perfect for those days you want a good read without having to do too much thinking.
