Melissa de la Cruz's third installment of her "Beauchamp Family" series is available now on Amazon.com. This third book is called "Winds of Salem" and continues the story of the three witches and their fight against evil.
This story has Freya thrown back in time to Salem during the witch trials in 1692 and her sister and mother try to reverse the evil spell that took her there and to get her back home.
Here is the official synopsis:
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, even her immortality is 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.
This story has received mixed reviews from readers on Amazon.com. Many are saying that it is poorly written, confusing plot twists, and boring stories. I have ordered the book to read it myself.
It has been rumored that this is the last of the series and when checking her website it's not even listed as a book in the series. I would think it wouldn't be the last of the series unless she is going to concentrate on helping to write the show that will air on Lifetime on October 6.
