Witches of East End blends themes of magic and romance in a most intriguing fashion and is set in a quiet hamlet of North Hampton where birds are dropping dead from the sky and fish are being poisoned. Even the people of the village are suffering, drawing longtime resident Joanna Beauchamp and her daughters, immortal witches who have lived there for centuries, into a dangerous plot that threatens their ability to lead quiet lives undercover. Melissa de la Cruz made her name in young adult writing, but here proves her ability to spin a complex, involving plot based on adult characters. Any general lending library will relish this!
