New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery returns to Blackberry Island with the poignant tale of two sisters on the verge of claiming their dreams.
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.
Averil doesn't seem to want the great guy she's married to, and doesn't seem to be making headway writing her first book; their mom is living life just as recklessly as she always has; and Nina's starting to realize that the control she once had is slipping out of her fingers. Her hopes of getting off the island seem to be stretching further away…until her mother makes a discovery that could change everything forever.
But before Nina and Averil can reach for the stars, they have to decide what they want. Will Averil stay? Will Nina leave? And what about the men who claim to love them? Does love heal, or will finding their happy ending mean giving up all they've ever wanted?

For as much as I read and listen you would think by now that I would know how to spell lol. I read at least 5 books a week there are times I have gotten up to 10 in a week.
I just don't know. Something was missing from this book. I can normally relate to or connect with the characters in Susan's books but not this one. This book started off interesting but quickly lost all interest in it. If this was a show on tv or a movie I would of turned it off. But since I bought it, I finished it. Something was lacking, just not what I have come to expect from a Susan Mallery book. Nothing seemed to really get fix, or come to a conclusion. Everyone in the book just said oh Hey this is my problem, problem solved. Nothing was really worked threw or talked about like you would expect from a book. I would of thought this was an abridge version.
Another excellent story
I love the relationships between the characters. I enjoy that there are layers to the characters.
I liked Nina
I was moved by the conversations between Nina and Avril
This author rarely misses. I enjoy her books very much. I enjoy the narrator too.
I enjoyed this book, and the series.
I liked the characters and the location.
I liked them all, except for Avriel...the voice she used for that character was so annoying! Baby talk voices are just annoying to me,
It would be painful.
Her male voices were absolutely ridiculous and unbelievable.
No I couldn't handle listening to the narration of male voices for that long.
the character's all had pretty great personalities. I like the Susan gives in depth descriptions.
Nina had to figure out which man to love while trying to help her family get their lives straightened out. the love she has for her family finally get's to out shine her feelings of responsibility. the twists in this book are quirky and fun.
It's a good read, and important for hints about her new Series.
The way Nina was able to let go and be a daughter rather than the "mommy".
None at this time
The narrator could have been a little more dramatic....this story would have been better with someone who could infuse the drama
It is nice to see that Susan is expanding her story line to include the LGBT community.
