    Story
    (80)

    Small-town nurse Nina Wentworth has made a career out of being a caretaker. More "Mom" than their mother ever was, she sacrificed medical school - and her first love - so her sister could break free. Which is why she isn't exactly thrilled to see Averil back on Blackberry Island, especially when Nina's life has suddenly become…complicated. Nina unexpectedly finds herself juggling two men - her high school sweetheart and a younger maverick pilot who also wants to claim her heart. But as fun as all this romance is, Nina has real life to deal with.

    What did you love best about Evening Stars?

    The way Nina was able to let go and be a daughter rather than the "mommy".


    What other book might you compare Evening Stars to and why?

    None at this time


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator could have been a little more dramatic....this story would have been better with someone who could infuse the drama


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    It is nice to see that Susan is expanding her story line to include the LGBT community.
