I'll admit it-I'm tired of vampires, sick of zombies, and (dare I say it?) fed up with the undead.  But witches are another story altogether!  And this particular witch story is so fun that I bet it could win over a few of the magic-haters out there.  

Witches of East End is set in modern times in a small, affluent town on the East Coast.  Joanna and her two adult daughters, Ingrid and Freya, are witches who have been forbidden to use their magic.  Joanna can raise people from the dead, the humble library worker Ingrid can predict the future and weave charms to cure common ailments, and the passionate bartender Freya works wonders with charms and potions.  For hundreds of years, the women were not permitted to use any of their powers; they were forced to live as normal humans.  However, when a mysterious threat emerges in their town, and a young girl disappears, the three turn to their magic again.

This is a fun, fast read with plenty of romance, mystery, and magic.  While it's not necessarily the most convincing plot, readers who are willing to suspend their disbelief for a bit will be rewarded.
