Witches of East End - By Melissa De La Cruz

Let me start by saying this is the first adult novel Melissa De La Cruz has written. Her usual genre is Young Adult that includes her famous series Blue Bloods. Witches of East End is nothing short of amazing. The way Melissa writes this story goes from one moment to the next with wonderful flow and finesse. The story line in itself was genius. Family of Three witches, Joanna, Freya and Ingrid and how stories are a journey for each of them. There is not one dull moment. Writing one seamless story following three different Characters is sometimes is hard to do but Melissa did this effortlessly. I felt like I was in the bar, in the library, on the boat all at the same time. I did not find it hard at all to keep track of the each character's story or the story of the book as it went along.  I highly recommend this book to everyone looking for an amazing read. For this review I will include part of the actual synopsis of the book. It is not written by me but I wanted to share it as I really think if you are on the fence about reading this book. Maybe including this will help you decide.

Part of the actual synopsis of the book below:

The three Beauchamp women--Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid--live in North Hampton, out on the tip of Long Island. Their beautiful, mist-shrouded town seems almost stuck in time, and all three women lead seemingly quiet, uneventful existences. But they are harboring a mighty secret--they are powerful witches banned from using their magic. Joanna can resurrect people from the dead and heal the most serious of injuries. Ingrid, her bookish daughter, has the ability to predict the future and weave knots that can solve anything from infertility to infidelity. And finally, there's Freya, the wild child, who has a charm or a potion that can cure most any heartache. 

Best Wishes
