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.

Audio-fiction ADDICT !
I love Nora Robert's style in writing. Sweet, and magical yet you can relate to it. I enjoy the community she creates, she does not concentrate only on the main two characters, she blends in different characters to examine different aspects of human emotions and interactions. The paranormal twist that she adds in this book is so different from other paranormal fiction, it is in small sweet doses that you still relate to it.
The narrator was good , however not my favorite contemporary narrator. She needs to work more on her male voices and add more life to her characters
Very enjoyable book :) I recommend it :)
I love Nora Roberts but this was definitely not her best work. I almost feel like I have to read the others in the trilogy and hope they are better than this one.
I am a guy who is usually drawn toward the typical genres for dudes. Somehow I stumbled upon Nora Roberts. I loved the story and performance for "The Witness" - my first Nora Roberts book - so I was really looking forward to my second submersion... Not sure if it's that the writing has less passion and energy? - it seems very cliche - or if it's that I have a serious dislike for the narration?. It was very old style acting, campy speech by the narrator. Some people may like that style. I don't. *** The dialog and Narration for "The Witness" was fantastic! *** Highly recommend it!
Every word because i have a tendincy to skip over parts
I enjoyed the whole book
Listening to the book really brings the conversations to life.
When the three form their circle to protect Nell.
She did a great job on the different voices. She gave Nell's voice the hesitant, but earnest quality it should have to be true to the story.
This is one of my favorite books and the story always makes my heart soar for Nell's journey.
Camden Smith owns DREAMFly Marketing, a full service marketing firm located in Southwest Florida. She regularly reviews books and is an avid reader as well as audible client. Favorite books are mysterious romances or those stories about personal growth.
If you are looking for a book that fictionally lays out how witch craft is in a much more historical manner this is it. Nell suffers and you don't know why until just when you need to know and then her interactions with the islanders are natural for someone who has been abused.
You will love this book and start #2 immediately!
I haven't read the print version, but I believe I would rate them about equal.
This is a very strong woman themed story. Three women - from three different places in life and views - all coming together for the greater cause.
The opening scene hooked me.
No extreme reaction - It was a good read - an escape.
The only thing that took away from this story - in my opinion, was Sandra Burr's 'voice' of the hero...It was weaker - or made him appear to me more wishy washy or laughable...I had a hard time wrapping my mind around the fact that he was the 'drop dead, gotta have guy'...
No, this book would be much better reading it.
Mia, because she was the only person in the audio part that the voice actually has some passion when speaking.
Nels voice sounded like a little girl and all the mens voices sounded the same.
Yes, very nice story line.
Say something about yourself!
I like the premise of the 3 sisters island idea. It's a bit unique and the story deals with some topics that are a bit more sensitive -- spousal abuse. It's different to read about this kind of thing in a Romance novel and that's appealing.
One of my issues with this book is that I tend to like my sex scenes a bit on the steamier side. The writing here really glossed over them and made them seem a little cold.
My other major ocmplaint is the narrator. I've listed to another book that this same narrator read and had the same complaint... For one thing, her voice is too child-like. For another, se doesn't do good male voices and there's barely any difference in her female voices either -- if you're just listening to her intonation, you can't tell which character is saying what in places.
I'd like to read the other two books in the series, but I may choose to 'read' them instead of listen to them. Or try to find them narrated by someone else.
This was classic Nora. Enjoyed all aspects.
Witches are always fun.
I liked Nell the most
Not really applicable. Never could give so much time in one sitting
