It had been a while since I read Melissa De la Cruz's first novel of this series, WITCHES OF EAST END, but have no fear! Melissa must understand that her readers may not all have the best of memories, because she gives us the broad strokes of what happened in the first book before we move on.
Once caught up, magical mother, Joanna Beauchamp and her daughters, Ingrid and Freya, have three very separate conflicts in the beginning of the novel. Freya's twin brother secretly comes home asking his sister to prove his innocence and her lover's guilt; Ingrid is falling in love with a man who doesn't believe in magic; and Joanna is caught in a love triangle between a new love interest and her husband whom she hasn't seen in a century. Add in pixies, a dead spirit trying to make contact, and a little good old fashioned Thanksgiving mahem, you have yourself an enchanting sequel!
In my opinion, this is a perfect series for someone who enjoys a paranormal adult series that doesn't take itself too seriously. I read this book between two very serious and heavy tomes, and it was just what I needed.
Even though it's the second book of the series, one does not need to read the first one if they are too far down the waiting list in the library. That being said, I did enjoy WITCHES OF EAST END a bit more than I did the sequel, but this is a common complaint of mine, and it doesn't take away from the fact that this is a fun series.
