666 Park Avenue by Gabriella Pierce

What if your mother-in-law turned out to be an evil, cold-blooded witch . . . literally?
Ever since fabulously wealthy Malcolm Doran walked into her life and swept her off her feet, fledgling architect Jane Boyle has been living a fairy tale. When he proposes with a stunning diamond to seal the deal, Jane can't believe her incredible luck and decides to leave her Paris-based job to make a new start with Malcolm in New York.
But when Malcolm introduces Jane to the esteemed Doran clan, one of Manhattan's most feared and revered families, Jane's fairy tale takes a darker turn. Soon everything she thought she knew about the world—and herself—is upended. Now Jane must struggle with newfound magical abilities and the threat of those who will stop at nothing to get them.

For this to be an adult romance novel, I found it to be a light and enjoyable read. The main character of the story Jane, has a blossoming romance with one of the wealthiest men in Manhattan. Then Jane finds out that her soon to be mother in law is a wicked old witch. I found Jane to be too over-trusting of strangers. While this book is really not my type of chick-lit, it is a proven example of how a writer can write a chick-lit book and still throw in splash of paranormal. I honestly really like the T.V. show, the writers of the show have given the show more plots and twists than what happened in the book.
