Joanna and her 2 daughters have always had magic in their lives, and been able to practice magic until the council stripped them of their right to practice magic in their lives and told them they had to blend in with the mortal people and not stand out.
For centuries they have abided by the council's ruling and blended in the best that they could and tried their hardest to suppress their natural abilities. Now their small town where they have lived peacefully for so long has been invaded by a darkness that is creeping in and trying to take over.
Now the only way to try to save their peaceful town and the townspeople that they have come to love is to embrace their magical nature and fight magic with magic and right the wrong that has been done. Can they fight the evil before it is too late? Before Freya the one daughter marries someone who may be at the center of the evil?
Can they save their town? And if they do will the townspeople embrace them and their magical abilities? Or will the townspeople turn on them and it be another Salem all over again?

I loved this book. I really hope that this author writes more books like this one as I would really love to read more by this author. She really knows how to tell a story and get you into that world and make you really care about the characters. Keep them coming.
It’s the beginning of summer in North Hampton, and beautiful Freya Beauchamp is celebrating her engagement to wealthy Bran Gardiner, the heir to Fair Haven and Gardiners Island. But Freya is drawn to Bran’s gorgeous but unreliable brother Killian, and sparks fly when the two decide to play a dangerous game, following an ancient story of love, betrayal and tragedy that harks back to the days of Valhalla.
Witches of East End follows the Beauchamp family—the formidable matriarch Joanna and her daughters Freya and Ingrid. Freya, a sexy bartender, has a potion to cure every kind of heartache, while Ingrid, the local librarian, solves complicated domestic problems with her ability to tie magical knots. Joanna is the witch to see when modern medicine has no more answers; her powers can wake the dead. Everything seems to be going smoothly until a young girl, Molly Lancaster, goes missing after taking one of Freya’s irresistible cocktails. As more of the town’s residents begin disappearing, everyone seems to have the same suspects in mind: the Beauchamp women.
Fraught with love, small-town secrets, and witchcraft, Witches of East End will capture any reader who craves a page-turning, heart-stopping story of myth and magic from an author who knows how to deliver.
