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 coastal 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.

It all begins when Freya’s twin, Freddie, suddenly returns, professing innocence on a long-ago crime and blaming Freya’s fiancé. Torn between brother and lover, Freya doesn’t know who to trust. And, for the first time, Ingrid is in love with a charming detective. But can romance work between a virgin witch and a mortal who doesn’t believe in magic? To add to the chaos, a dead spirit is attempting to make contact with Joanna—but does it mean to bring harm or help?

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

    " This book was so bad I didn't finish it. The author, who appears to be young, writes for a certain age of nonliteray minded women (think slacks, "frosted" hair, sensible shoes). Also, while this is a series, it's really just a "mystery" in disguise. Within one chapter (actually less) I knew exactly where this was going. Ugh. Don't waste your time, and I've wasted too much time writing THIS! "

    " Serpent's Kiss is the second book in Cruz's Wiches of East End Series, and continues the story of three modern day witches who just happen to be immortals and Norse gods and goddesses. I can't remember what I rated the first book, but for me, I just couldn't rate this book higher than 3 stars. Overall, I found the story enjoyable and liked learning more about the characters, especially Joanna, Ingrid, and Freya. I especially liked the themes of good vs evil and magic, and the incorporation of Norse mythology. I also had to appreciate the little plot twist at the end. Although these things made the story interesting and enjoyable, I thought the story started slow and lagged in several places; and even found myself bored at times throughout the story. I also had a really hard time getting into this story. As once I start a series I have to finish it (for better or for worse), I plan on reading the next book in this series. Would I recommend it to other readers? Maybe, depending on the reader. "
