Jane Boyle married her prince charming and moved into his upper east side castle—but she didn't get her fairy-tale ending

Its hard to live happily ever after when you discover your demanding and controlling mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn't even know you had. Jane narrowly avoided Lynne Dorans clutches when she escaped on her wedding day, and has been hiding out in New York City. But she cant hide forever.

When Jane learns of the one thing Lynne wants most, she sets out to provide it, hoping her good turn will persuade her mother-in-law to stop hunting her. Unfortunately, Jane's daring plan will send her right back into the witches den—the Doran clans multistory town house on Park Avenue. But thanks to a tricky spell, blond architect Jane will be transformed into Ella, a dark beauty with a whole new look . . . and all of Jane's budding powers. Though the stakes are life or death, nobody said Ella couldn't have a little fun along the way, too.

Evidently I am not the only one that thinks it is OK to pick the second book in a trilogy.

This book recapped the first book enough that it wasn't necessary to read before you start this one. However, this book did not give enough of an ending to not read the third one.

It was an alright book, although I probably won't read the next book, I'll just have someone tell me the end.

I also learned all about a Vertu phone. I now know I can sell my car and buy one if I wanted. Who knew?

I have a really hard time (as with the last book) liking characters who are cheating on their spouses. And even though it did fill you in on what happened, I would have rather started with the first book. (Her husband seemed interesting--but maybe just by his absence!) But the magic was fun, and it did have some plot twists I didn't expect. Not horrible, but I'm waiting for Lauri to tell me what happens in the third book. :)
