BOUND
Bound by magic, bound by love, bound by murder…
The Bonheim triplets live seemingly ordinary lives, hiding their magic from their neighbors in the small, mountain town of Doyle, California. But when a body is found in big sister Jayce’s coffee shop, Karin is determined to prove Jayce innocent.
A murder isn’t the only bizarre event in Doyle. Why are hikers vanishing in the nearby woods? Why are some people cursed with bad luck and others with good? And why is Karin’s magic the weakest of the three sisters’?
As Karin digs deep to uncover the truth and regain her magic, her family is thrown into peril. Will her power return too late to save the people she loves the most, or will it be the cause of disaster?
Spells included at the back of the book!
GROUND
Her magic flows from the earth…
Jayce Bonheim is on the sheriff’s radar and not in a good way.

The answers lie below…

I received this book via Red Coat PR to give my honest opinion.

I notice that I don't really usually read cozy mysteries and I am not sure why they are actually enjoyable when they written greatly.
So we have three different stories and each one builds on the story before it.
Bound is the story we start off with and we are introduced to the three sisters. Lenore, Jayce and Karin who live in this magically town but yet they don't know this. They just feel drawn to this place they call home. While their aunt is on her death bed and speaking in crazy riddles Jayce is being investigated by the police for a murder that happened in her store. With the help of her sisters and her attorney which has more of a stake with the town of Doyle they will uncover something not so good. What is different about these witches is that they are the first in their line of family to be born as triplets, because when ever this family gets a birth the mother always dies with the father following and they are no exception. They can break this curse they just have to figure it all out.
In book two Ground we are focused more on Jayce, this poor lady can not catch a break with the deaths happening all around her. Thank goodness her attorney is still willing to help her out. Jayce will find herself in a pickle and will do everything to find out who is behind all that is going on. It seems that everything is connected from the murders, to the missing hikers, to the pub going missing, the curse of the triplets family, and the beauty within the town will they be able to stop the person or nonperson before it is too late.
Last but not least is the last book within this box set and it is called Down. This story still has the sisters within it but we are focused on Lenore and what she can do. It seems it will take all the sisters to put an end to the curse but Lenore because of her powers can spirit travel and find the information they need to put a stop to this fae that has a power over their town. I think Lenore was my favorite character even though I enjoyed the other two sisters, I guess because I love books and can relate to losing yourself when you read. I also loved how Lenore could spirit walk between the worlds to me that is just neat!
There is love, family, and magic all wrapped up in a good box set.
Character wise they were well developed the town of Doyle seems like a good town even with the magic that is there. The author had a good twist with Brayden coming clean to how his life intertwined  with the sisters. I also liked who the fae was and who was helping this person out. I kinda sorta figured something was up but wasn't 100 percent sure.
Overall a good book the only thing that did bother me was when I started book two and book three I was a bit confused on who I was reading as I didn't realize we were switching characters and point of view.
