Review: Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow by Rosalie Lario, Boone Brux, and Patricia E


Goodreads Summary:

The Von Tassel sisters are in deep. With a new inn opening up to non-magic guests, these three witches have enough to worry about, but after a deal with the Headless Horseman, all three Von Tassel sisters must find their true loves by All Hallow’s Eve or forever be trapped as ghosts in Sleepy Hollow like their ill-fated aunties.

Will Stephanie be able to forgive her playboy ex? Will Bri be able to win back her childhood cruch-turned-ghost hunter? Will Lexi be able to sway her supernatural employee? And will they all be able to fall in love by the week’s end?

My Review

Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow put its own fun twist on witchcraft and the supernatural. Three sisters and their three dead now ghost Aunties are the main residents at their Inn in Sleepy Hollow. All of them just so happen to have rocky romantic pasts which leads to some nasty deals with the dead and a curse that forces them to find love within 5 days! 5 days!! Fortunately, fate steps in and makes finding love a cinch!

Though the magical elements and basic plot of each of the three mini stories in this book were pretty different from your average book, I couldn’t help but feel that everything was just too easy! Each girl happened to find the man of their dreams (all of themhad had formal relations with each guy) right away, had some reservations, got over them, made love, and fell in love all in that order! Each story had a pretty redundant pattern overall. The Aunties’ pasts were each a little more different, quite honestly, I think their history/stories would have been more fun to read about than their nieces. Each Auntie had a scandalous life and terrible death, filled with love turned to deceit and horror. However, each one of them also, naturally, got over their grudges from when they were alive and reunited with their true loves right in the knick of time.

Don’t get me wrong, each romance was cute, steamy, though a little cheesy, in it’s own way. However, since each sister/Aunties’ story was so short, I didn’t really get enough time to fall in love or form an attachment to a select one. I liked each story well enough, but I just felt like I needed something more from each too.

Overall, Spellbound in Sleepy Hollow was a cute anthology of witchy and ghostly tales, though a little too cliche and a little too happily ever after for me, it wasn’t a terrible read by any means.
