The Serpent's Kiss (The Beauchamp Family #2) by Melissa de la Cruz book review

Joanna and her daughters, bookish Ingrid and wild-child Freya, are just settling into the newfound peace that has been cast over their small, off-the map town of North Hampton. With the centuries-old restriction against practicing magic lifted, casting spells, mixing potions, and curing troubled souls has never felt so good for the three witches. That is, until everything gets turned upside down—from Joanna’s organized kitchen to Ingrid’s previously nonexistent love life to Freya’s once unshakeable faith in her sexy soul mate, Killian Gardiner.

When Freya’s twin brother, Freddie, suddenly returns, escaped from Limbo and professing innocence on a long-ago crime, Freya should be ecstatic. The golden boy can do no wrong. Or can he? Freddie blames no other than her fiancĂ© Killian for his downfall, and enlists Freya’s help to prove it. Now Freya doesn’t know who to believe or trust.

And for the first time in—well, forever, really—Ingrid is also busy in love. Matt Noble, the handsome and charming police detective, has won her heart. But can romance work between a virgin witch and a mortal who doesn’t believe in magic? Things get even more complicated when it appears Ingrid is harboring the prime suspects in Matt’s police investigation.

To add to the chaos, a dead spirit is attempting to make contact with Joanna—but does it mean to bring harm or help? Joanna asks her sort-of ex-husband Norman to help figure it out, only to accidentally invite him to a Thanksgiving dinner with a dapper gentleman she’s recently begun dating.

As the witches pull together to discover the serpent within their midst and the culprit behind Freddie’s imprisonment, everything is thrown into peril. Will the discovery come too late to save those they love most?

                                           MY REVIEW

I have read and reviewed Witches of East End last year and  I had very much enjoyed that I couldn't wait to read Serpent's Kiss when it came out so when I was asked if I wanted to review this book I jumped to the chance.

For this book what I like is that Melissa de la Cruz does a recap of the previous book at the beginning of the book so if you have not read the first book in a while it will refresh your memory as to what happened. I read this book the weekend and I admit just like the previous book I was hooked from the very beginning of the book and I didn't want to put it down. I think this book is very well done and you can very well imagine the characters and what is going on throughout the book. I now can't wait for the next book in this series to come out. I highly recommend this book.

This book is now available at all major bookstores

I give this 5 out of 5
