It's so hard to believe that we are so close to half way through the year! I am very close to meeting half of my reading goal. Currently hitting that snag. I hope everyone else I close to their goals!

Review: The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel A story of Sleepy Hollow by Alyssa Palombo

Title: The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel A story of Sleepy Hollow
Author: Alyssa Palombo
Publisher: St. Martin’s Griffin
Publication: 10/2/2018
Stars: 5


When Ichabod Crane arrives in the spooky little village of Sleepy Hollow as the new schoolmaster, Katrina Van Tassel is instantly drawn to him. Through their shared love of books and music, they form a friendship that quickly develops into romance. Ichabod knows that as an itinerant schoolteacher of little social standing, he has nothing to offer the wealthy Katrina – unlike her childhood friend-turned-enemy, Brom Van Brunt, who is the suitor Katrina’s father favors.
But when romance gives way to passion, Ichabod and Katrina embark on a secret love affair, sneaking away into the woods after dark to be together – all while praying they do not catch sight of Sleepy Hollow’s legendary Headless Horseman. That is, until All Hallows’s Eve, when Ichabod suddenly disappears, leaving Katrina alone and in a perilous position.
Enlisting the help of her friend – and rumored witch – Charlotte Jansen, Katrina seeks the truth of Ichabod Crane’s disappearance, investigating the forest around Sleepy Hollow using unconventional – often magical – means. What they find forces Katrina to question everything she once knew, and to wonder if the Headless Horseman is perhaps more than just a story after all. In Alyssa Palombo's The Spellbook of Katrina Van Tassel nothing is as it seems, and love is a thing even death won't erase.

I thought the book was wonderful. The suspense, the heartache, the adventure it was all well wrote and kept your attention for the whole thing. When you get further along in the book you wouldn’t expect some of the twists and turns that the author throws around. It was truly a captivating novel. Especially with forbidden love, learning to love someone you hate, and finding out the truth. Charlotte always seems to know exactly what was going to happen and when. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It had a little bit of everything in it!
