Waiting on Wednesday #3

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine It's a chance to showcase what new releases we're eagerly awaiting! 

Winds of Salem by Melissa de la Cruz

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.

Moving between past and present, Winds of Salem's dizzying plot twists and page-turning suspense is sure to bewitch fans old and new.

Why I'm Waiting:
I finally recently bought a copy of The Witches of East End. I have been looking for an adult series about witches that is really enjoyable; like The Mayfair Witch Trilogy by Anne Rice. I know I dont really need to get into another series but this one has been calling me for a long time. I'm excited to get into a good series like this and that cover!? oh, my :O 

What are you waiting for?
