Heaven and Earth: Three Sisters Island Trilogy, Book 2 | [Nora Roberts]

Heaven and Earth: Three Sisters Island Trilogy, Book 2

Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff's deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them - which, lately, isn't all that often. She's perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her - and though she tries hard to hide them, she can't get them under control.

Publisher's Summary

Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff's deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them - which, lately, isn't all that often. She's perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her - and though she tries hard to hide them, she can't get them under control.

Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of MacAllister Booke - a researcher who's come to investigate the rumors of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there's something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. It's not just her blazing green eyes and her sultry smile. There's something else. Something he can detect, but she'll never admit. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is - and find the courage to open her heart.

But before Ripley and Mac can dream of what lies in the future, they must confront the pain of the past. For Three Sisters shelters centuries of secrets - and a legacy of danger that plagues them still.

Listen to the other books in this trilogy, including Book 1, Dance Upon the Air; and Book 3, Face the Fire.

    Just a knitter/weaver/spinner that though his hands are busy would like to keep up with his reading.

    "A favorite series I listen to at least once a year"

    Fits in perfect between other books to break up heavier reading. I find the whole series a great "reward" to treat myself to occasionally.

    What would have made Heaven and Earth better?

    I've read a bunch of her books, this one was definitely a disappointment.


    What was most disappointing about Nora Roberts’s story?

    I feel it dragged. Ripley wasthe main and most annoying character.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I still like Nora Roberts and would read more of her books. This is the first of 6 books I've read that was disappointing.

    I love her books because you get to see so many sides and it is a great way to relax and listen to a great story. I dont care who reads, I just like to sit back and relax and listen!

    "I have fallen in love with another nerd!"

    This is my second Nora Roberts' book. I listened to this book because it is the second in the Three Sisters Island trilogy. Nora's leading man in the first book, Dance Upon the Air, caught my attention but MacAllister Booke is a true find for me. He has head-turning good looks, a drool-worthy body, and a brain, although it is very absent-minded. What a pleasure to read.

    (My first nerd was my husband so I guess I am drawn to them)

    I like mysteries, suspense and thrillers. Occasionally I will listen to some scifi or fantasy.

    "Continue to fall in love with these characters."

    I love this series, I have read in paperback and have listened to these audiobooks at least a half dozen times since they were written. They are very sweet and exciting and suspenseful and never fail to make me feel good. I enjoy this narrator and have purposefully bought other books that have been read by her. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I have.

    Story
    "A Fire Tale of Witch craft"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Heaven and Earth to be better than the print version?

    In my case yes, enjoyed the narration of Sandra


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Mia. She guides her friends while remaining true to her beliefs. Most of all she loves her sisters, her town and her island. And she stands up for all in her own way. This is Ripley's story and the powers to be picked the perfect mate for he. One discovers how much he loves and will stand for this woman who owns his heart.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of the alarms going off after the first big love scene.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Looking forward to the last book. This continues to build on the first book, but I think the last big scene with Ripley.


    Any additional comments?

    If you enjoyed the 1st book, you'll enjoy the second. This is a G rated romance. But I enjoyed the story.

    Story
    "Reliably good"
    If you could sum up Heaven and Earth in three words, what would they be?

    Romance, Magic, Personal struggles


    What other book might you compare Heaven and Earth to and why?

    This is what you'd expect from a Nora Roberts Trilogy. There's a bad guy and obstacles to overcome but in the end our plucky protagonist wins.


    What three words best describe Sandra Burr’s performance?

    Not too much differentiation between voices, but certainly kept you in the story. The 'evil' voice was scary.

    Story
    "Hoaky Yawn"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It would take a better storyline. It was predictable after the first 30 minutes.


    Has Heaven and Earth turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, It was just a dud! It happens even to the best of authors, let alone to a whole genre.


    What about Sandra Burr’s performance did you like?

    She was clear voiced, concise and kept good pace. The corny 80s synthesizer "evil voice" took ALOT away from the reading.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I can sum up this book in one word, "Predictable". I had hoped for better after reading the first installment. The corny 80s synthesizer "evil voice" was extra cheesy. I had hoped it would have filled out Ripley's character. There was little to no development in the other characters either. That is a huge regret! The characters are interesting.


    Any additional comments?

    SKIP THIS BOOK! Unless you cannot live your life without knowing what happens in this trilogy.
