Beauty and the Horseman's Head by Holly Kelly, Book Review
It’s 1792 and Hope is on the run. She finds shelter in a glen called Sleepy Hollow. Luck is with her as the town is unexpectedly looking for a new teacher and Hope is hired for the job. Unfortunately, not everything is looking up for her. Not only is the mayor out to get her fired and the local witch determined to slice her up and brew her organs into potions, but hidden under the floorboards of her quaint little cabin, she finds a man. His name is Conall.
Conall is demanding, he’s ornery, and though he has undeniably handsome features, he is missing something of vital importance…
Beauty and the Horseman’s Head is a spooky, somewhat dark, twisted paranormal romance that combines the stories of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Beauty and the Beast in a way that will have you falling in love and gasping in fright.
When I got the chance to review this book, I jumped at it without even having read the book summary! Because you guys, it is HOLLY KELLY, and she wrote the Rising series which I LOVE! So how could I not jump at the chance to review one of her books? I should have known better, I should have known not to start the book at night....because I became so engrossed that I had a severe disregard for my sleep and my alarm which would go off for work the next morning. I read half of the book that night..it...was...that...good. You guys, the fantasy mixed with the love story and good versus evil was fantastic! Kelly kills the legend of Sleepy Hollow in a fantastical fantasy world that you cannot imagine until you enter it yourself! An added bonus is the love, the emotions, the heart pounding suspense as you wonder how everything is going to all work out! So what are you waiting for? Go and grab your copy of this book and enjoy your journey with Hope, Conall, and their friends! I am sure glad that I did!
You can pick up your own copy via Amazon.
