A SAHM that reads and reviews romance (all sub genres of romance), Urban Fantasy & Sci-Fi, sometimes Horror, and YA (some sub genres of it).  

 

I've been reading since I was my oldest daughter's age….thanks to R.L. Stine & Christopher Pike…and later on thanks to Anne Rice.  Those 3 authors changed my life and I have been obsessed with reading ever since.  

Currently reading

Girls Night Out: Volume 2 (GNO)
'Patricia A. Wolf', 'Calinda B', 'Lila Dubois', 'C.J. Ellisson'

5 full moons - "Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow"

Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow: A Von Tassel Sisters Anthology (Entangled Edge) - 'Patricia Eimer',  'Rosalie Lario',  'Boone Brux'

Three stories in one book that weaves into each other telling a unique twist to the Sleepy Hollow story.  Here we have three witches, the Von Tassel witches that are taking care of a inn together.  They are trying to make it where non-magical guests can stay there, but it’s kind of hard when they have 3 Aunts strolling the grounds with her true loves tied to them.  Yup…the Aunts are ghosts.  They were killed many years ago and  they have a curse on them thanks to a certain favorite Sleepy Holly character that everyone should know.

Rosalie Lario, Boone Brux, and Patricia Eimer each write a story of the each of the Von Tassel witches that are running the inn in present day. Each one will have to find their one true love, or else deal with the same fates as their Aunts are currently dealing with.

Each one of the Von Tassel witches stories were entertaining and kept me turning the pages.  The first story in the Anthology was written by Patricia Eimer, and it was my first book I’ve read from her and I loved how she wrote Stephanie’s story.  I still think Stephanie had it hardest out of all the sisters to find her true love since she had to deal with getting over what the ex did, and then dealing with a certain character who made it difficult for her.  Rosalie and Boone are already favorite authors of mine and I loved how they continued the other sisters’ stories from Patricia’s.  The Anthology was easy to follow and the different points of view made the story even more interesting.  I loved getting to know each of the characters and even the Aunts who were ghosts.  (Sorry no spoilers…let’s just say I’m a big fan of Sleepy Hollow and was so glad that these three authors put a new twist on this tale)

I give this Anthology 5 full moons and highly recommend it to paranormal romance readers out there.  If you are a fan of Sleepy Hollow, you will enjoy a new twist on the town that involve some very determined witches.  =)

I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
