Book Club Friday: Winds of Salem

Happy Friday!  I don't know about you all, but this was a loooong week for me.  I've been reading up a storm lately, so it's time for another Book Club Friday.

Synposis (from Goodreads):
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, her immortality will be 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, with dizzying plot twists and page-turning suspense, Winds of Salem is sure to bewitch fans old and new.

My thoughts:
I really liked the first two books in this series and while I enjoyed this book, I didn't like it as much as I liked the first two.  I thought this one moved a bit slower and it bounced between several narrators which took a bit to get used too.  It wrapped up most of the plot lines, so not sure if the series is continuing or not (it might just be a trilogy).  I wish they had spend more time on the Salem portion and the trials as I find that part of our history very fascinating.
