The intriguing Beauchamp family, introduced in the New York
bestselling Witches of East End,
Serpent''s Kiss, with dizzying plot twists and spellbinding magic.
Joanna and her daughters, bookish Ingrid and wild-child Freya,
are just settling into the newfound peace that has been cast over
their small, off-the map town of North Hampton. With the
centuries-old restriction against practicing magic lifted, casting
spells, mixing potions, and curing troubled souls has never felt so
good for the three witches. That is, until everything gets turned
upside down--from Joanna''s organized kitchen to Ingrid''s
previously nonexistent love life to Freya''s once unshakeable faith
in her sexy soul mate, Killian Gardiner.
When Freya''s twin brother, Freddie, suddenly returns, escaped
from Limbo and professing innocence on a long-ago crime, Freya
should be ecstatic. The golden boy can do no wrong. Or can he?
Freddie blames no other than her fiancÉ Killian for his downfall,
and enlists Freya''s help to prove it. Now Freya doesn''t know who
to believe or trust.
And for the first time in--well, forever, really--Ingrid is also
busy in love. Matt Noble, the handsome and charming police
detective, has won her heart. But can romance work between a virgin
witch and a mortal who doesn''t believe in magic? Things get even
more complicated when it appears Ingrid is harboring the prime
suspects in Matt''s police investigation. To add to the chaos, a
dead spirit is attempting to make contact with Joanna--but does it
mean to bring harm or help? Joanna asks her sort-of ex-husband
Norman to help figure it out, only to accidentally invite him to a
Thanksgiving dinner with a dapper gentleman she''s recently begun
As the witches pull together to discover the serpent within
their midst and the culprit behind Freddie''s imprisonment,
everything is thrown into peril. Will the discovery come too late
to save those they love most?
Melissa de la Cruz weaves all this and more in a blockbuster
sequel that is not to be missed by her fans, and one that is sure
to enchant new readers of the series.
