“Girls Who Wear Glasses” is a Rom-Com for the cynical — a story about weight, love, friendship, and finding your voice.
Summary: Plus-sized, almost-middle-aged Rachel Simon has settled into her life. But in a lifetime of not-quite fitting in, and battling Jewish guilt and demon food issues, she has given up on finding love, despite the well-meaning nagging of her close circle of friends – Joanie, an actress “of a certain age” whose marriage is on the rocks, Lisa, Rachel’s shiksa-goddess best friend, and Brennan, who hasn’t come out to his family.
Now, Rachel has received some big news: a fashion blog, which she secretly wrote on the side, has caught the eye of a major fashion magazine, who not only want her to write a column but are giving her an award at an upcoming banquet. The problem? She used her best friend Lisa’s picture on her bio, and believes they expect a tall beautiful blonde to walk through the doors of the magazine.
She asks Lisa to pose as her at an upcoming meeting, as well as the awards banquet, believing that she would lose everything if they knew someone who looks like Rachel was behind the writing. Then, she meets Nathan: cute, smart, and just a little bit weird, but she’s absolutely convinced men like that don’t ask out “fat girls” like her, and places him decidedly in the Friend Zone, and to her dismay, find that her best friend has decided to date him.

Food critic Sarah Greenberg is a normal thirty-nine-year-old content with her ordinary life. In fact, the only real excitement she has is the occasional hand she lends at her family’s Chicago magic shop.
Until one day when the ordinary becomes extraordinary and a simple introduction to her boyfriend’s teenage daughter unearths a family trait long dormant in Sarah.
Without even trying, she can do magic.
Her newfound, though late-blooming abilities make her part of a world she never imagined, and her family’s long lineage of Magycians unravels Sarah’s world.
But when she discovers her family’s store is in danger of being taken away by an old acquaintance, Zondra Bex, Sarah is forced to face an enemy more skilled and decades older than her.
Sarah must learn to develop her skills to protect her family from a foe that wants to wield the power embedded in the store’s location and rule the Magyckal world. But will embracing her newly discovered abilities eradicate everything she believed herself to be?
Part rom-com, part The Dresden Files with a dash of Jewish mythology, ENCHANTING SARAH GREENBERG is a funny, fantastical look into a woman’s struggle to find herself, believe in herself, and prove to everyone that she is extraordinary in her own way.
“Inglis has a light, comedic touch with this fantasy romance, Enchanting Sarah Greenberg… [The] slightly bonkers worldbuilding brings the fun without ever sacrificing genuine emotion; despite the magical backdrop, Sarah and Colin feel wonderfully grounded. Readers will be spellbound.” – Publisher’s Weekly
