Book Review: Witches of East End by Melissa dela Cruz

Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
For centuries, all three women have been forced to suppress their abilities. But then Freya, who is about to get married to the wealthy and mysterious Bran Gardiner, finds that her increasingly complicated romantic life makes it more difficult than ever to hide her secret. Soon Ingrid and Joanna confront similar dilemmas, and the Beauchamp women realize they can no longer conceal their true selves. They unearth their wands from the attic, dust off their broomsticks, and begin casting spells on the townspeople. It all seems like a bit of good-natured, innocent magic, but then mysterious, violent attacks begin to plague the town. When a young girl disappears over the Fourth of July weekend, they realize it's time to uncover who and what dark forces are working against them.

Book Review

This book is another book from Melissa dela Cruz this time it's about Adult Fantasy. So this time she wrote a book about 3 witches, The Beauchamp girls who posses different kinds of powers but they are forbidden to use their magic cause the witches council thinks that their magic causes harm to humans.

so any-who! this is another book from one of my favorite authors. i love the blue bloods series and i was also expecting this one to be as intriguing  as the blue bloods series, and i just have a glimpse of Freya in Bloody Valentine, and she is such a nice girl..err witch to cure Ollie's broken heart.

this book is actually an adult book so it contains some graphic scenes and well this contains a lot of twist, cause Melissa dela Cruz combined Norse Mythology plus Witches in this book, the first couple of pages is filled with mystery and a lot of blabbering but the ending made the book so much better, Freya's love triangle is such a nice twist. i find myself so confuse on which brother should i root for, another thing i think i see in this book is it contains women empowerment, Ingrid,Freya and Joanna are such strong girls that posses different kinds of personalities, that i think everyone can relate to i think the beauchamp girls showed that event though your timid and shy (Ingrid) wild and snarky (freya) and a mother (Joanna) you can still be have some spunk and can stand on your own feet.

overall this is one good read, and i know that there are more twist on the upcoming books of the series, the mythology is really nice touch. and if you are a blue bloods fan, you should read this!!! OMG!!! Mimi made a small appearance on this book, and guess what? she is asking for a subvertio ritual!! hmmm... *won't spill the details* haha!!! GRAB the BOOK and read it!!!
