really liked it

This story was interesting enough, but not quite a good as Witches of Eastwick. The beginning rambled on about foreign trips some of the witches took alone, and with each other. It was quite a wait till we got to Eastwick again.

It was nice to have them reunited in town and shown all the changes that happened over the years but there wasn't much magic, unlike the previous book.

However, all this being said, I really enjoyed the story. The personalities of all the women were all quite different, even though I thought Jane was a complete crab this time around.

So, this story was a nice closure for the tale that began years before. I'm sorry there won't be anymore tales of Jane, Alex and Suki. And I can't help but fantasize about a book that would have closed the gap between the two time periods. That would have been awesome. But, alas, is not to be.
