Love this series. I read it often, now Iisten often. The joy of sisterhood of women who become friends, then "sisters". I have my blood sister, and I have my "sisters" born of long friendships, or similar circumstances. This story illustrates it well. My only problem is I read Mia as Mya, and the narrator says Meea, which annoys me. Probably my fault for reading it wrong in the first place.
I love this whole trilogy and how the sisters saved the island and all found love. Just as enjoyable the 2nd time around.
I really liked the book and the characters. but how does Nora Roberts write a character named Mac Book and there are no jokes about it?
are his and Ripley's children going to be named I-Pod and I-Pad?
I've listened to other Nora Roberts books and other books with this narrator, but this was a perfect storm of a bad book. The heroine seems whiny; the narrator does a great job of communicating the whining, but it's not something I want to listen to (I've got co-workers if I want to hear hours of whining). After a few chapters, I gave up.
The interaction between the heroine and hero is weird. They go back and forth between liking each other and then not, but the interplay is more about the h pouting and the H asking what he did wrong. The emotional part of the novel would have been more appropriate in a high school or NA novel.
Interested in books that help one's spirit move beyond the ordinary.
My taste in Nora Roberts novels runs to those with a magical bent. So it is not surprising that I have recently read the Three Sisters Island and Cousins O'Dwyer series back to back.
What strikes me is the similarity of the three main female characters in each trilogy. The protagonist in each of the first books is a petite blonde - Nell in Three Sisters and Iona in the O'Dwyer novel. Both start out as timid pixies, who develop a strong back bone as the story evolves. The second book focuses on two women who are completely opposite of Nell and Iona. Ripley, a brunette and Meara, a red head both have a fiery temper and will of steel. Their challenge in the story is to develop maturity and restraint.
The third book brings the two characters I most enjoy-the black haired beauties Mia and Branna. Of the three pairs, these two women are the “old souls” of the group. They provide grounding around which the other characters operate.
The plot is almost the same in the two series as well. Each woman finds or reunites with a mate and the three couples form a group to battle a centuries old evil force that threatens to destroy them. The group, of course, prevails and “all is well that ends well.”
I have enjoyed both trilogies even though they are the same story in a different guise. If you have read and liked one of these series, the other will likely please you unless you are bothered by the similarity of them.
Just to predictable no twist.
Not one of her best series
I liked them all. Each had their place
Mia's story was just not as engaging as Nell and Ripley. Wish there was an epilogue. Worth a listen to wrap up the trilogy, but it doesn't live up to its predecessors.
