But even in this quiet, peaceful place, Nell never feels entirely at ease. Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café - and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd.
But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him - for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she's so carefully created could shatter completely.
Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.
Now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women - and the nightmares of the past haunting her every step - she must find the power to save her home, her love...and herself.

"Once again, Roberts proves that she's a top-notch romance writer. This enchanting and empowering tale is...terrifically entertaining." (Booklist)
"A magnetic hero, a heroine who finds herself, and some memorable secondary characters weave a mesmerizing tale of witchcraft and magic." (Library Journal)
Glad to be part of the audible community and I hope that my reviews help to choose the right book and share my love of reading.
This was my first Nora Roberts read. I took advantage of the "first book" sale Audible offered. The story is very predictable. The author chooses the heroin to be a self-taught baker/cook/caterer and doesn't do proper research on any of these professions - no juicy tidbits about the jobs or recipes or little tricks. To add to her non-research, she throws in witchcraft (not researched either, and I am glad for that). The author does not develop any of the characters, so that the reader can truly identify with them, she just brushes on a few character trade marks and their quirks and "spices" the story with swearing and cussing * which really smart readers can do without out Miss Roberts**
If you don't want to learn anything or get annoyed then is the book for you.
The narration almost brought me to tears. The main character sounds like an eleven year old and the main male character sounds nasal, so nasal that my ears were hurting. The narration made this book even worse!
In short, I don't know if Miss Roberts always writes this shallow, expertly uses bad words, and doesn't research her subjects - I probably won't invest in another Nora Roberts book and the narrator was horrible!
Absolutely loved it. Nora Roberts is an excellant writer. I love audible as I can download to my laptop and listen while I am roaming the internet.
this is the first book i have listened to that has a female for the reader and i was a little uncertain at first but WOW was i mistaken she is amazing
I enjoyed the use of the magical & mystical, I found the narrator handled the characters very well. Liked the twist of drama. Very entertaining, enough so that I have bought the trilogy. Looking forward to the other 2 books.
Don't really know if I could have enjoyed the story as I didn't get past the first 45 minutes. I just couldn't handle the narrator's voice anymore. I will never buy another book narrated by Sandra Burr.
