Sleepy Hollow, a haunted inn, three witchly sisters, and a curse mean love, magic, and some ghostly help might save the day. It took me less time than the flick of a wand to grab this trio of novellas by three exciting paranormal romance authors. But, bad on me it took several years for me to take it down from the Kindle shelf, dust it off and delve inside because it was full of spicy and sweet Halloween Treats.
The collection of closely inter-related stories begin with Patricia Eimer telling Stephanie’s part of the story. She was a new to me author, but I enjoyed the light and smooth feel to her writing and the fun banter she created for Stephanie and her ex, Carson as well as Stephanie’s 200 hundred year old ghostly auntie, Katarina and her ex, Brom. The author had the job of introducing the setting of the Sleepy Hollow Inn, tying it to the legend, introducing the characters and their dire situation which includes the Headless Horseman’s curse as well as a wedding and interfering council witch with her own agenda as well as getting Stephanie and Carson to iron out their issues from the past so Stephanie can learn to trust that Carson really has turned over a new leaf in the present. I thought she packed a great deal into her novella and thought she did a great job of it all.
Next, an author I have long enjoyed, Rosalie Lario told Bri’s reunion romance with Jason who is now a ghost hunter. Jason has a rep of destroying the reputation of the places he hunts in, but it is his crushing Bri’s young teenage love years back that have her more stirred up. She has to get about the business of finding someone to love before the curse leaves her and her sisters ghosts like their aunts. Jason was clueless at first, but it didn’t take him long to feel that old Black Magic with Bri and they got things moving along nicely.
Finally, another new to me author, Boone Brux, finished out the story with Lexi’s tale. Lexi is the only sister who had history with her guy, Tristan, but didn’t hold it against him. They dated a bit as teens and he turned out to be the hot handyman hired for the inn. She doesn’t fight their sizzling attraction and has a fun rapport with her ghostly aunts who had their sad stories of love. In Lexi’s story, there is the big wrap up and I loved that.
The three novellas were well developed individually and worked well as a whole. I liked how the three author’s styles gave a distinct voice to each sister. I hope all of them or even one of them returns to the world of the Von Tassel sisters and Sleepy Hollow. I should have read this one sooner, but I was glad that I finally picked it up for this Halloween seasonal reading. Paranormal Romance lovers who want something perfect for fall should snatch this one up and take it one at a time or read the novellas all at once.
