Overview

Freya Beauchamp is trapped in 1692, in Salem of all places, with no recollection of her past. A powerful enemy spell has sent her spiraling away so that she is separated by centuries from her mother, Joanna, and sister, Ingrid. This is not good news for a twenty-first-century witch. Not to mention the immediate threat she faces from the wealthy and influential Putnam family. When little Annie Putnam is one of the first to make accusations of witchcraft, her landowner father jumps at the opportunity to consolidate his power and expand his holdings in Puritan Salem Town. If Freya is caught using magic, she will be forced to relive the witch trials, and this time, her immortality will be in question.

Meanwhile, twenty-first-century North Hampton has its own snares. Joanna and Norm consult the Oracle for advice, and Freddie and his pixie allies search for a missing totem that could reopen the passages of time and help bring his sister home. When Ingrid bumps into an old flame, she finds that her new love for Detective Matt Noble is in doubt. Moving between past and present, with dizzying plot twists and page-turning suspense, Winds of Salem is sure to bewitch fans old and new.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
A family of witches travels through time to rescue one of their own in the third novel in the Witches of East End series. In 1692 Salem, Mass., witch Freya Beauchamp wakes up with no memory of who (or what) she is. While working as a maid, Freya begins to piece together her memories and explore her supernatural powers, as she is wooed by dashing Salem newcomer Nathaniel Brooks. Meanwhile, in present-day North Hampton, Long Island, Freya’s mother, sister, brother, and boyfriend are searching for a way to rescue her from Salem, where they know she has been sent to die at the hands of a witch hunt. In an adventure that takes the Beauchamps across centuries and to the underworld and back, Freya and her family fight to save one another from malevolent forces, facing challenges and sacrifice along the way. De la Cruz taps into a confusing web of mythologies to populate this follow-up to Witches of East End and Serpent’s Kiss, and the book’s compelling Salem scenes are bright spots amid a disorganized larger narrative. Bursts of action are sometimes lost in a muddle of superfluous backstory, and between these two extremes, de la Cruz struggles to find her footing. Agent: Richard Abate, 3Arts Entertainment.

    Good but drawn out.

    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.

    I thought this book was a hot mess. I actually went back and read it twice because I thought it must have been my imagination. It just seemed so completely disjointed at times.
    When I compare it to her Blue Bloods series it just seems like an entirely different person wrote it or perhaps Cruz lost her groove somewhere along the line.
    If you haven't been following this series then the storyline might appear confusing, despite Cruz trying to fit in explanations of who the characters are or were in past and present.
    There was a lack of character development, possibly due to multiple timelines and settings.
    It was a shame because the time-skipping element was quite interesting in combination with the immortal Gods.
    Being forced to live out various lifetimes in different characters and somehow always cursed to act out the same dramatic twisted relationships over and over again.
    Sounds great in theory, not so spectacular in this book.
    Overall I think it could have done with a little more attention to detail and flow.
    It isn't quite what I expected from this author.
    I received a copy of this book via NetGalley.

    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.

    *I received this book through NetGalley*

    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.

    I enjoyed the book, but I think the first is still my favorite.

    I enjoyed the book, but I think the first is still my favorite. Parts of this volume were a bit choppy. I did like the history aspect of the book though and seeing what things were like back in Salem. I wish we'd gotten to see more into the character Freddie. I feel like we barely grazed the surface of who he was and then it was over. I like how things ended for Freya and Ingrid but I can't say I'm happy with the endings for Freddie, Joanna or Norman. And I wish some questions that were raised in book 2 would have been addressed prior to the ending of the series. All in all, if you're a fan of the series you will enjoy it, so give it a read.
