A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.

Librarian Jane Madison's life has turned upside down since she discovered she's a witch. The local coven has issued an invitation she can't refuse--work a spell to protect their new safehold or lose her beloved arcane books, her sassy feline familiar, and her brooding astral protector, David Montrose.

But the coven's test isn't the only challenge Jane faces. There's her new boyfriend, a handsome Brit who seems determined to distract her from magic. And a witchy friend who has a distinctly loose grasp on arcane ethics. Not to mention a long-absent mother, a mojito-loving best friend, and a boss who expects Jane to step up to the next level in library management.

Is sorcery the answer to all of Jane's problems? Or is magic only another name for disaster?

Before the local Georgetown coven accepts her as a witch, Jane Madison must perform a creditable deed worthy of this skilled group. She knows she is not ready, but keeps studying the GIRL¿S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT for the day she can prove herself.-------------- Meanwhile as she struggles with her training as wannabe sorceress single swinger, Jane also has relationship issues with her best friend and her mother. However, her new boyfriend makes her feel good about herself yet is also lacking. Finally as she practices for a Halloween performance, her world crashes down on her as those who care about her no longer know her since her priorities changed---------------- The second Jane coming of age fantasy (see GIRL¿S GUIDE TO WITCHCRAFT) is an enjoyable tale that will be enhanced by reading the previous book first as the audience will be able to gauge how far (or little) the heroine has come in meeting her objective. Readers will enjoy Jane¿s efforts to be good enough to be accepted by the local coven and how her endeavor causes friction with her best friend and her mother as wiggling noses bewitches no one in Mindy Klasky¿s humorous whimsical tale.---- Harriet Klausner

Again I wish I'd paid attention to this book being in a set of 3. Regardless I'm happy I bought and read this one and I plan to read all of the Washington Series books. I read for different reasons and I enjoy getting away from heavy or serious stories at times. Love all the main characters in this series. You should definitely get them in a set!! Happy Reading, rhondah19

Nice, fast read. So glad Jane Madison does what she did at the very end of the book and can't wait to read the next one.

This is the second in a series, the followup to Klasky's A Girl's Guide to Witchcraft. In the first, Jane Madison finds out that she is a witch, with a familiar, Neko, and a warder (teacher and guardian) David. In this one, she is set a challenge in order to become part of the powerful DC area ccoven.Jane has to learn to balance the need for intensive study about witchcraft with her job as a librarian, her duties to family and her best friend, and her romance with Graeme, who seems her ideal man. Overall , the characterizations are good, and the depiction of witchcraft is pretty accurate. The only thing I found rather unbelievable was that having been badly betrayed by a man in the first book that Jane would enter so easily into another relationship with a somewhat mysterious figure.Recommended.

As enjoyable as the first book in the trilogy, our librarian friend discovers the value of her independence.

Sorcery and the Single Girl by Mindy Klasky - I didn't like this as well as Klasky's first effort. Jane just seemed too unaware, too gullible, too needy in this outing. Yeah, maybe she's still getting used to the fact that she is a witch and that not all witches are "good", but she still should have recognized Haylee's motives (for example) using "real world" smarts. Still, it wasn't bad enough to swear off Klasky. There's supposed to be a new book out in October. I'll have to make a note.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series but this was disappointing. The first 600 pages were full of romantic drivel and the story line was far too slow. It did pick up again in the last few pages but that was far too late. What a shame!

I liked this installment. You got to know Jane alittle better and understand her child like quirks. It drags alittle with flashbacks to her younger self but over all a good read.

Really enjoyed her style, it was a fun and easy read. I enjoyed the characters and nothing too complex. I don't like trying to read a novel when I can't pronounce names and no problem here, thank you.
