Review

"Through space and time, sisters entwined. Lost then found, souls remain bound."

When a powerful spell was cast, three sisters souls were parted . . . 

Trin and Kit has been on the search for their sister for so many years that they were beginning to lose hope in finding her.
Trin believes that something been lurking around preventing her from finding her sister until she really find out the truth behind why the struggles of finding her sister has lasted for so many years.

Evil spent years keeping the sisters apart and draining one sister's magic in the process, but now that the bond has fused back together it will do anything to keep them apart. 

Attempt to weaken the bond. 

Blood is thicker than water, Sisterhood is stronger than evil

I give this an 4.5 Cat's Tails Up, I really enjoy this book and really love the aspect of the book it presented.

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW


This book is all about WITCHES!!!
It's been forever since I've read a book that had witches in them, I was a BIG BIG fan of Charmed and had read some books that were based on the series and some episodes. With Tish's The Witches of Blackbrook turns out to be about three sisters that ended up getting place in other bodies as their souls passed on. For Trin she been looking for her third sister with Kit and she suspects that something was blocking the magic from finding her.

Trin meet Jason Hardy an Officer, right away she feel an instant connection to him but not sure why she does. At work Trin meet Caris who happens to be Jason's cousin in for a massage and another strange feeling happens. With Caris it's more and Trin wonders if it's her missing sister.

What made this book great was the way Tish ties in old past life/memories of the sisters and then show an evil lurking around the sisters, particularity an sister. When Caris reveals something to Trin about why Trin couldn't find her third sister, it becomes a shock to her.

Now that Trin found her sisters they have to deal with the evil that is trying to keep them apart, because as you know there's that saying . . .

"Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer."

 The build up of magic being released and the bonding of sisterhood, nothing can defeat them.

When sisters Trin, Caris and Kennedy are finally back together, evil will do anything to break that bond.

With Jason being Trin's lover interest, you have to wonder why she feels an instant connection to him? Maybe that powerful spell did more than cast the sisters's souls through time. When Jason's identity is revealed, he too admits to have spent just as many years searching for her as she did searching for her sisters. 

With the interchange POVs got you to see what the others were thinking rather than have it one POVs and  be one side of the story. Clearly the mystery lies within the different POVs throughout time.

Tish really did the interchange of time really well along with the characters, the only ones I wished she did a little more on was Kennedy because of her personality changes throughout the years of time and space. But also a little with Kit because she is always AWOL in the book!

After I had finished this book, I really thought that it was a stand-alone and I was like "It can't be a stand-alone!" so I eagerly message Tish asking her if it was because I think more can happen. She neither deny nor confirm that there's a second book in the works but she did say that she has thought about it. So we will see!

Overall I enjoyed the book, it felt like a reunion with my love for witches after Charmed has ended so many years ago. I'm the same way for ER and nothing in the TV world has generate my interest that might be consider similar concept to ER or Charmed.
