This book instantly made me think of the movie, Practical Magic,
This review is from: Witches of East End (The Beauchamp Family) (Hardcover)
Joanna lives in North Hampton with her two daughters, Ingrid and Freya. Everything is good except that Joanna and her daughters are witches. Freya is engaged to Bran Gardiner. Ingrid has no man but she does have her eyes on the sexy, sheriff, Matt Noble.
The women have been banned from using their powers. Of course, there is only so long that a witch can go without using her powers. Slowly the three women start using their powers. Strange things start happening around town. When all signs point to Joanna and her daughters, they will have to band together or there could be another witch burning.
I tried Mrs. de La Cruz's Blue Blood series before. Of course, I jumped into the middle of the series, which I should not have. I was not feeling this series. This probably had something to do with me not starting at the beginning. This is why I was a little unsure of trying this new series but I thought, this is the best time to try this author out again. So glad I did check this series out. I loved Joanna and her two daughters, Ingrid and Freya. Each one had their own personalities that I liked. Ingrid may be the bookish one but she is very smart. There always had to be a Freya to keep things entertaining. Then there is Joanna, who is the glue that holds them all together. I like the bond that she is forming with Tyler.
This book instantly made me think of the movie, Practical Magic starring Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman. They were sisters and witches. I can not wait to read book two, Serpent's Kiss. This series is just getting really good and exciting.
