Not The Best 28 Aug 2014
By Dianne E. Socci-Tetro - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Janet Chapman has in the past, written so many books that I am constantly re-reading that I could never really believe that she would ever write a book that I am unenthusiastic about. A book that I wouldn't be able to praise to kingdom come. Until now.

The first 15 -18% of the book is pretty much spent recapping all of the past books and you will find that this happens during the book also. The characters and the romance never really seems as fully developed as in the past books. The magic never has to be explained to Birch. Birch - is that a French-Canadian name? I'm not used to non-famous parents naming their children after trees or plants!

The story line is a little preposterous, but then again usually the story is more about the romance than anything else. The mysteries are usually secondary to anything else. However, in this particular book, the romance seemed to take a back-seat to the mystery.

If anything, this book seems to be a set-up for upcoming volumes and it really left something to be desired for me.

I have a feeling this won't be the last time we see these particular secondary characters and the build up of the forest. Otherwise this book may just be a bad book and not the stepping stone I hope it to be!

PS - this was the first book that the *magic* was not explained to the heroine. Interesting.

Rated: 4 Stars

Another fun and exciting trip back to Spellbound Falls with its lovely inhabitants. It took me a little bit to warm up to Birch (I just love her name). She was too much of a bitch for me to believe Niall or anyone would fall for her but I carried on because I love these stories. Thankfully her behavior changed and she became worthy of Niall. Now him I liked from the start. With his Highlander heritage struggling to conform to modern times he was quite enjoyable. This fun romance was exciting and filled with danger. Past characters I grew to love are there and add the sense of camaraderie that makes you feel a part of things. You can read this book as a stand-alone, but reading the series makes it easier to understand the magic and backstory of this wonderful little area.

Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy.

I've said it before but it's definitely true. Janet Chapman writes about the magic of love. Sure her stories have more than a little of magic of other kinds around but there is just something special in each of her books. The Highlander Next Door isn't always the perfect book but it leaves the reader with a warmth and the belief that love is waiting for us. That you just need to believe and it will come. Of course Spellbound Falls very existence is based on an act of love so huge, so mythical that it moved mountains (literally). So the people understand the importance of true love. Even though most of them aren't aware of the magic that runs deep in their little slice of Maine.

Birch Callahan stopped believing in happily ever after sometime around the age of 6... A child of a teenage mésalliance Birch has watched her mother marry unsuitable sleaze after unsuitable sleaze and her father never really love at all. She wants to believe in something more but with her observations it's hard. In fact she moved to Spellbound falls just to get her mother away from her latest sleaze. Even went as far as to tell her mother that it was against the law to marry more than four times in America (totally made me grin). She is convinced that this time she can protect her mother. Now all she has to worry about is protecting herself from the sexy sheriff next door.

Niall MacKeage accepted Oceanuses offer to travel forwards in time and attempt to win his daughter's hand in marriage. That didn't work out so well BUT he liked it in this time and decided to stay. Offered the position of Sherriff, Niall is determined to fit in. Except he also refuses to arrest someone just because his wife's ticked at him. Now how does he explain to Birch that he's not a woman hater and he believes in protecting them? And if at all possible how can he convince her to look his way?

Birch and Niall may be on opposite sides of how they go about serving the community and providing shelter and protection for abused women but they both believe in the cause. So gradually they let down their fences and become a bit more neighborly. Attraction is sparking but a newly minted god and a con family from Canada have other plans.

Will the danger surrounding Spellbound Falls break them apart or bring them together?

A sweet and charming read. Worth the time.. and yes it reminds us all that love abounds!

Another Big Hit for Me! 15 Nov 2014

As always, Janet Chapman doesn't disappoint in this latest installment of her Spellbound Falls Romance series. I still love everyone, everything, and every bit of each uniquely penned story, since reading the very first book where it all began with a plane crash in Charming the Highlander. I fell head-over-heels in love with Miss Chapman and all of her characters from page one, which isn't an easy feat for me. I mean, you don't often come by a bunch of braw Highlanders battling it out 'old school,' in their homelands and in their own time, only to find themselves dropped forever into a new time and taken to a new place not of their understanding.

Bringing it up to the present: Along with the addition of some gods, various other deities, the occasional dragon, an enticing variety of shape shifters (some with four legs and sleek black fur coats, and others with snow-white feathers), perhaps a monster or two, as well as a few demons, and then toss in a handful of mere mortals, and you've got yourself an absolutely delicious mix of brawn, brains, mythical mayhem, and the feisty modern-day beauties whom the big, tough Highlanders and magical beings simply cannot resist. This spin-off series written after the Highlander books still boasts the occasional highlander, but it's also evolved into to so much more. It's completely different, like a sweet treat tempting you all throughout each story.

Thanks to the sudden and unexplainable creation (it is indeed unexplainable, but you'll have to read the other books to find out what event took place to make it happen), of the huge inland salt-water lake that's teeming with the types of aquatic wildlife you'd normally find only in the ocean, Spellbound Falls and the immediate surrounding areas are now worldwide destinations for tourists to come and witness the modern-day marvel. Such a phenomenon ends up being a huge magnet that attracts scientists from all different fields, a group of whacko cultists, and every other type of crazy who are all vying to prove their own theory of what happened, how, and why. What none of them knows is that it's all about the Magic; something you must truly believe in, or you'll never see it and you'll miss out on the most amazing aspects of life in the beautiful, unlikely mystical area.

When Birch Callahan, a hardheaded pessimist for her own reasons, comes to town planning on running a shelter for battered women and children, she has no clue of the full scope of what she's getting herself in to. Nor does she have room in her life for a man, or plans that include a relationship whatsoever. It's working out well for her so far, that is...until she meets Niall MacKeage, the sexy next-door neighbor who happens to be a cop. Sure, he's hot and has a respectable job, but he does nothing for her at all...or at least that's what she keeps telling herself.

Between some unsavory criminals, the age-old greed that poisons so many people, as well as a few other extenuating circumstances, Birch begins to question her decision and ability to run the shelter and keep its inhabitants safe; the whole reason for the shelter's existence. If she is to succeed she'll have to stay alive, however, in the end she may have to loosen up on some of her stubborn, hard-won, independent nature, and possibly allow someone else not only to save her, but perhaps to love her as well.

Get on this series, but only after you've read Janet's Highlander series. If you don't, you will certainly regret it.

To reiterate: I strongly urge everyone to start from the beginning by checking out the full printable booklist - in reading order - which can be easily found on Chapman's website:
The list has the newest at the top, so go to the bottom and find book one, Claiming the Highlander. This will put you on track to then work your way through the abundance of novels that follow. Each story is full of smart, sexy, capable men and women, as well as the aforementioned mythical and magical beings, 'unexplainable' happenings, random immortals, plus more, and just enough heart-pumping drama and riveting suspense to keep you turning the pages well into the wee hours to keep up with the steamy passion - can't leave out the passion! - that all the craziness ignites. Enjoy! 😊

Book: The Highlander Next Door (Spellbound Falls #6)
My Star Rating: 4 out of 5
Will I read I read it again? Maybe

This review is my honest opinion and I have fully read this book.

I love Janet Chapman and all of her series. Some of her books are 5 out of 5 and then others are 4 out of 5. This one is 4 out of 5. I liked this one but I didn't LOVE it.
Usually I can fall into one of her books and fall in love with all the characters. In this book her main character Birch was kind of annoying. I felt that she really stuck her foot in a lot of things she should have not done or if she did do she should really be smart about how she did it.
I really had a problem with how Birch was in this book. I rolled my eyes when she did need Chief Niall had to rescue her. Because again she was not being smart. In real life she could have been killed because she was stupid on how to go about doing things.
What did redeem the book for me were the other characters in this book. Chief Niall was great as well as his First officer. I also can't wait to read more of her books about the newest god. It was also great to see new faces as well as some of the old faces in here.
Over all I did like the read and still love Janet Chapman and can't wait for her other books.
