Book Review: Forever Bound by Jessica Dall

This was a sweet and intriguing story. It's a little different than what I normally read but it was nice to step out of my box and try something new. Find out more about Forever Bound below.

Forever Bound by Jessica Dall

Set among the rolling green Irish hills, Kelkerry Castle is something out of a dreamy fairy tale. For hotelier Bridget Marshall, however, it's a dream come true...once she’s sorted out the mold, lead paint, and ancient plumbing. And she’ll prove to everyone in the nearby village of Shansally (pop. 119) that she’s not just another silly, dreamy-eyed American—including her curt (if utterly gorgeous) new neighbor, Liam O'Flannagain.

Only, this breathtaking castle has far more secrets than expensive repairs. While someone—or something—here desperately wants Bridget to give up and walk away, there’s another force tugging Bridget to stay. Because whenever she’s with Liam, the ancient past seems to come to life again, sweeping them along in a story they’re apparently destined to relive.

Now, Liam and Bridget are caught up in a long-ago tale filled with love, danger, and betrayal. The past seems to be working its magic on both of them, pulling them into a love story they’re helpless to resist. And they’ll have to uncover the truth of what happened all those centuries ago before history—and tragedy—repeats itself.

3 out of 5 stars

Forever Bound was a sweet romance and beautiful love story all rolled into one. It was a bit different from what I normally read but I was intrigued the entire time and enjoyed it. It was a good story with a little mystery and supernatural moments woven in.

I liked the present-day romance happening between Liam and Bridget for the most part but there were some things that I didn’t enjoy. It was nice but light, and sometimes they felt like very surface characters. I liked Liam a lot, he was a sweetheart. As for Bridget, I didn’t always care for her and the choices she made. There was also a love triangle-ish situation happening that I was not a fan of. It did make sense by the end of the story but it made it feel drawn out.

I loved the mystery of the past and how those details unfolded and the love story happening there. There is a nice mystical element happening as well. It mixed well with the mild suspense happening in the present day.

This is one of those stories that's hard for me because I liked everything as a whole but there were smaller things that I had a hard time with. Overall, I liked it. The details were good, sometimes it was a little slow but the storyline kept me reading until the end.
