The Beauchamp Family Book # 1
by Melissa de la Cruz
Genre: Contemporary Romance | Fantasy
Witches of East End follows the Beauchamp family—the formidable matriarch Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid. Freya, a sexy bartender, has a potion to cure every kind of heartache, while Ingrid, the local librarian, solves complicated domestic problems with her ability to tie magical knots. Joanna is the witch to see when modern medicine has no more answers; her powers can wake the dead. Everything seems to be going smoothly until a young girl, Molly Lancaster, goes missing after taking one of Freya’s irresistible cocktails. As more of the town’s residents begin disappearing, everyone seems to have the same suspects in mind: the Beauchamp women.
Fraught with love, small-town secrets, and witchcraft, Witches of East End will capture any reader who craves a page-turning, heart-stopping story of myth and magic from an author who knows how to deliver.
Likes: I'd be tempted to taste Freya's new cocktail menu at the North Inn Bar :)
Dislikes: I wanted to get immersed in the story, but due to the plot being all over the place I was overwhelmed more often than not.
