Everything is perfect in the magical, off-the-map New York town of North Hampton. And the equally magical women of Beauchamp family intend to keep it that way. Or is something darker waiting for the witches of east?
If I’m going to be honest this book is pretty dull, not a awful lot happens. It very much feels like a middle book, unfortunately paving the way for things to come in the final installment. I was hoping this book would have move drive to it compared to the first book Witches of East End,which again felt like it leading to bigger things to come. But I keep asking myself, when the heck are these things coming?!
After the events of the last book Freya is living happily with Killian, until her twin brother escapes from his banishment claiming it was Killian who destroyed the Bridge not him. With this seed of doubt planted Freya finds herself questioning the man she loves, but there is no sense of real urgency. Her and Freddie are keeping his return a secret whilst she discovers the truth to his downfall, but it almost feels like his return is hindrance not a god send.
Ingrid is finally embracing a love life, but it almost seems like the smallest thing and she doubts everything by the, which if I’m honest will get annoying. Matt is willing to go as fast or as slow as she wants and is happy to share his life with her when she’s ready. You just want to shake Ingrid and get her to embrace this moment and charge at it head on.
Joanna too has things going on with her love life, and whilst dealing with the two gentlemen in question she is also trying to contact a witch hanged during their time in Salem who is making her presence noticed.
There is so much in this book that would make for a kiss-arse book, one that proved reading the first would be worth it, but unfortunately it falls short. It is desperately in need of a kick up the bum and some much needed oomph.
