Spellbound Falls is the first in the most recent series by Janet Chapman. I have to say I can’t believe I fell behind in this author. When I discovered this book in the library, I knew I just had to read it. Ever since I discovered this author, I have just loved the tender romances and witty humor found in her works, and now I have found another story that I have fallen in love with. Spellbound Falls is a bit different than her other books. It brings in what I would call “New Blood” where the hero is very powerful, royal and is from Atlantis, and is also known as a wizard. I really loved the way the story was put together, and it seemed a bit different than her other books. Spellbound Falls is a enchanting romance, filled with witty humor and a sense of fun and adventure. I loved the creativity and appealing story line that just draws you in instantly….A Magical Read!!!!
