So yeah this is definitely not one of my fav series. So far the whole series has been meh for me. I’m not quite finished but I don’t think it’s going to get exciting for me. It sucks that these books didn't do it for me. I like the story line, the whole thing of who they really are, and the idea of Freya reliving the past but I don’t feel the books were executed well. The books just dragged for me and these characters are not doing it for me.

I didn't like when the story deferred from what was more important. The whole thing with Joanna’s obsession with being more of a mom to Tyler than his own. I. just. can’t. I skipped the chapter when it was just evolved with that. Oh and the whole thing with the author describing Freya’s hair as all sorts of color i.e. the color of strawberry or the color of apricot. Hello those are different colors! I don’t know why but that just bother me in the series.

So sadly I think I must part with the author. I will not be picking up any books by her anymore. Her writing style is just not my cup of tea but hey you may like it. Don’t trust my opinion.

On the whole I am enjoying the Witches of East End books. However, this last book went way beyond the main story line and drifted to tales not related to the main story itself. As an example there were several chapters devoted to finding a kindergarten for Tyler. I really didn't know what this had to do with the the story and tried very hard to get through it. The ending of course is not the end which disappointed me. I am not sure how may books the author is planning but again I have to buy more to end the story. I wish authors would go back to one book one story.

    the epic conclusion.

    I loved this series since I first started reading the books and now third and possible final book of the series is here. I'm not gonna spoil how it ends but I can say its good and leave it open for possibly more books.

    The Beauchamp family returns in the 3rd installment of The Witch

    The Beauchamp family returns in the 3rd installment of The Witches Of Eastend series.  The family that was once Gods and Goddesses are in our world stripped of their full magic. The youngest of the clan is thrown back in time, during the Salem witch trials, not able to remember her life and family.  The rest of the family is trying there best to get her back before she dies permanently this time.




     I have reviewed the other books in this series and I adore this one just as I do the others. In Winds of Salem we get to know Freya’s twin brother, Freddie, who was previously stuck in limbo. I love the bits of magic and mysticism and always crave more.  I took my time reading because I did not want leave the world.




     There was some confusion to me about Freddie’s wife, who I did not even remember them mentioning her before. I wished there was more about the magic.  I would also like to see Ingrid love life to move even more forward.




     I hope this is not the last of the Beauchamp series.  I think there is so much that could happen.
