Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)

" Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word... especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family’s destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other."

Born Wicked was not exactly what I thought... For some reason the cover made me think it was a book that took place in the south. However, the New England / Salem Witch Trial esque setting worked nicely too. The thing is I just wasn't entirely moved by the plot line and I felt it dragged on. As for the romantic interests, I like both equally but felt no strong loyalties or pull to one or the other. Overall, I won't make reading the rest of the series a priority.
