Book 3 in the series picks up the day after book 2 ended. I am so glad I didn't read these as they came out because I would not have wanted to wait to read the next one. Damsel Under Stress is just as funny and quirky a cozy-romantic-magical-realism-mystery as the first two. This time Katie has picked up a fairy godmother whose help is...not so helpful, and her roommates are starting to suspect Katie is keeping secrets from them. On the bright side, Owen invites her to spend Christmas with his foster parents, and repeated attacks on Katie and/or Owen certainly do keep things interesting! Can they uncover the extent of the conspiracy in time to keep the existence of magic from being revealed to the world? And will they EVER succeed in having a "normal" date?

For readers' advisors: story and character doorways are primary. Setting (New York City) is less important in book 3 than in the first two.
