Bound by magic, bound by love, bound by murder…

The Bonheim triplets live seemingly ordinary lives, hiding their magic from the neighbors in the small, mountain town of Doyle, California. But when a body is found in big sister Jayce’s coffee shop, Karin, the practical one, is determined to prove Jayce innocent.

A murder isn’t the only bizarre event in Doyle. Why are hikers vanishing in the nearby woods? Why are some people cursed with bad luck and others with good? And why is Karin’s magic the weakest of the three sisters'?

As Karin digs deep to uncover the truth and regain her magic, her family is thrown into peril. Will her power return too late to save the people she loves the most, or will it be the cause of disaster?

Bound is Book One in the Witches of Doyle Trilogy.

Spells included at the back of the book!

I started this seres with book 5 and ended up wanting to go back and read from the beginning.

Bound was fun and enjoyable. It has a few different mysteries to keep us entertained and intrigued. I enjoyed the magical elements and meeting the three sisters; Lenore the youngest, Jayce the oldest, and Karin the middle.

Doyle is an interesting town with some interesting people. Karin takes us on our mysteries as she try’s to prove that her sister Jayce didn’t have anything to do with the murder in her coffee shop. Along the way she learns of a curse on their family and meets Nick a man who has secrets of his own, but she is still drawn too.

I had fun learning about the sisters powers, the curse on them, and going on the murder mystery. Their is a little romance blooming, but that’s in the back ground our main focus is the mysteries.

Bound was a great start to the series and a good introduction to the Bonheim sisters. I can’t wait to read on and find out what happens next.

Rated: 4 Stars

    • I started out with book 5 in this series and with that wanted to go back and read from the beginning. Each could read as a stand alone, but I prefer to read series books in order. I’ve also read The Perfectly Proper Paranormal Museum series by this author and love those books. I hope you enjoy. I had fun with the introduction to our sisters and the town. ^_^
