Paranormal - Supernatural
From the author of the highly addictive and bestselling Blue
Bloods series, with almost 3 million copies sold, comes a
new novel, Melissa de la Cruz's first for adults, featuring
a family of formidable and beguiling witches.
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.
With a brand-new cast of characters, a fascinating and fresh
world to discover, and a few surprise appearances from some
of the Blue Blood fan favorites, this is a page-turning,
deliciously fun, magical summer read fraught with love
affairs, witchcraft, and an unforgettable battle between
good and evil.

A family of witches find that they need to unearth their previously hidden powers to make life around them a little better. I loved this story and found the characters to be well-formed with lively personalities that I would enjoy revisiting. Young adults will find this a fun break from all the vampires!
