Publisher's summary

After the death of her father - Pa Salt, an elusive billionaire who adopted his six daughters from around the globe - Tiggy D’Aplièse, trusting her instincts, moves to the remote wilds of Scotland. There she takes a job doing what she loves: caring for animals on the vast and isolated Kinnaird estate, employed by the enigmatic and troubled Laird, Charlie Kinnaird. 

Her decision alters her future irrevocably when Chilly, an ancient gypsy who has lived for years on the estate, tells her that not only does she possess a sixth sense, passed down from her ancestors, but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send her back home to Granada in Spain. 

In the shadow of the magnificent Alhambra, Tiggy discovers her connection to the fabled gypsy community of Sacromonte, who were forced to flee their homes during the civil war, and to ‘La Candela’, the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation. From the Scottish Highlands and Spain to South America and New York, Tiggy follows the trail back to her own exotic but complex past. And under the watchful eye of a gifted gypsy bruja, she begins to embrace her own talent for healing. 

But when fate takes a hand, Tiggy must decide whether to stay with her newfound family or return to Kinnaird and Charlie....

Narrator has a stuffy nose!

Granted, I’m only 5 Chapters in, and not only is the story dreadfully slow to pick up...the WORST part is listening to the narrator. I feel I need to give her a decongestant or Afrin! Very annoying, especially since I’ll have to listen to it for another 17 more hours!!!!
I love this series so far, and was looking forward to this release...very underwhelming so far!

Sadly not up to the standard of the series. Predictable, plot too simple, very disappointing.

Disappointing

I wanted to like this story - but I couldn’t finish the book. It was too disjointed. The dialog was cheesy. Didn’t sound natural at all. And it was all made worse by a narrator who could not produce a Spanish accent. Not her fault, but strange choice for a book that is half set in Spain. I think I would have enjoyed the book when I was 13... but not now.

Love this series..... but

I so wanted to love this book. I had been eagerly waiting for it. I'm sorry but something about this one felt rushed and formulaic. It was predictable and just failed to captivate the way the first four did. Story lines felt rushed and undeveloped as did the characters. Previous books are full of interesting and complex characters and how their lives intersect become part of the developing story. Not this time. Even Tigi, the main character failed to develop fully as had "sisters" in the previous books. It was more akin to a dime store romance novel with a totally predictable outcome. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, but disappointing when you are expecting so much more. Yes, I await the upcoming story of Electra. I hope Lucinda has her mojo back. While the writing style was lovely as always, this story just failed to satisfy.

Lucinda Riley creates wonderful characters. Each book in this series has been wonderful. Nearing the end of them and I will be sorry when they end.

Not the best of the sisters’ stories

I feel Lucinda Riley is running out of ideas as she reaches the last two (known) sisters. The Scottish story has a ridiculous plot and the Spanish one is not really gripping compared to the stories of the two eldest sisters. Both stories have too much mundane detail and stereotyped characters. And in the storyline which connects all the books you can’t help but question the motivation of Pa Salt in taking Tiggy away from the relatives who obviously loved her and wanted to keep her rather than giving them the financial assistance that would have made this possible. And why would he not have let them keep in touch with Tiggy over the years rather than only letting her find out about them in her mid-twenties by which time they might well have died? Pa Salt’s manipulation of the females in his life, including Ma and Claudia who are acting pretty shiftily back at Atlantis, is beginning to look quite sinister!

Disappointed

I looked forward to this new book from Lucinda but found the story line a bit tame. Im still not sure why she is called the Moon sister. Anyway not up to the usual intriguing storyline......

Truly terrible accents!

I've listened to all of the Lucinda Riley books and was so looking forward to this, but the narration is so bad that I'm just about to return it for a credit refund. So disappointed 😞

Disappointed

I was so looking forward to this book, but was disappointed.
I struggled with the past story from Spain, and the hours of information about the dancing, and so many characters, which in my opinion were unnecessary. The present day story was more interesting.

Very disappointing from the normally brilliant L. R.

Very confusing story ant as for the very odd ending suddenly jumping to another story. What and where are the other stories of the same series. Found the reader very heavy going. The sudden ending with another character was so confusing and random. Sorry L R I love your stories but have struggled with this.

Struggled with this one but l still love the series !

I have LOVED the seven sisters series so far, but this one I admit I struggled with. I persevered as I didn't want to miss any connections to the wider story but I just didn't connect with Tiggy the way I did with the other sisters.

I hoped, because the story was close to home in beautiful Scotland (a place I love), I would really enjoy Tiggy's story, but alas I didn't.

In fact, it wasn't even Tiggy's story I didnt enjoy, I found myself hurrying through the Spain chapters just to get back to the Scotland chapters.

Lucinda Rileys story's for all the sisters so far have been so brilliantly researched and fascinating, and this one is no different - it just didn't interest or captivate me.

I'm sure there are people out there for whom this story will be their favourite and one of my favourites (Cece or Star), won't be one of theirs.

So I'm not sorry I listened to it, I don't feel I wasted a credit, it just wasn't as enjoyable for me as the others. Five books down, this is still one of the most enjoyable series I've ever read.

I was a little taken aback by the ending. What! that's it? Where's the next chapter - you can't end it there! But sometimes less is more. Perhaps another chapter wasn't needed. You get the gist of what's going on, I just felt it was a bit abrupt.

No issues with the narrator. Some people have commented on her accents - I thought she moved between characters really well and was consistent as they appeared throughout the book.

Electra, book 6 - I'm on my way !

Another engaging installment in the series

With this being the 5th book in the 7 sisters series still enjoying the journey of each sister's discovery of their origins.

Most of all I enjoy the places and different times these books take us. The history, heritage and cultures enrich me.

With each book we appear to be getting closer to the mystery that is Pa Salt and is there a 7th Sister?

A highly recommended series.

Second time listening

As Pa Salt took so long to come out. I am Re listening to the last few stories. The prob is, even after buying and listening to theses stories audible has taken them OFF my library, if I have paid for them they should remain until I remove them. Now I have to try and find Electas story again. I am NOT going to pay for it again, but I have to say relistening to the sisters story’s after so long, is really making me look forward to PA story. Hopefully I will get to it before AUDIBLE removes it 😢😢😢😢

Slow and

Not as engaging nor as believable.
I found the main characters needed some credulity - too much time spent in the back story.

a good continuation of the saga

this story was good but did not wow me as much as some of the others. I liked the historical element more than the contemporary story.

Tedious overall, distracting narration

This novel was tedious, compared to the other novels in the series. I feel the whole novel could have been condensed into one short story. It was a very poor cousin to the previous novels in the series. I found the sexual-harassment of the main character in the workplace to be poorly handled by the author, and was quite distressing at times to read. The nasal tone of the narrator was possibly trying to emulate tiggy’s past respiratory issues, but listening for hour after hour on this audiobook was just too much. To be honest, I skipped much of the historical parts of the story When it flashback to Granada. It was just too tedious and by just popping in and out of those chapters it was quite easy to get a gist of what was going on. The ‘who done it’ aspect was pretty heavy handed. The spiritual or magical, or otherworldly nature of the story Was hard for me to embrace. I am really hoping The Sun Sister audiobook is better than this one. I will be requesting a credit for returning this book. I suppose you have to engage with the general story to figure out if there’s anything you need to hear in terms of enjoying the whole series, however it’s really not worth it.

The journey continues

For someone who reads more non- fiction than fiction, these books have drawn me in. I tend to agree with other reviews that the narrator’s tone wasn’t as engaging as Maia and Ally’s stories but none-the-less the story encaptured me and I was not deterred from finishing the book. I have skipped books 3&4 unintentionally but it doesn’t seem to have affected the journey through the books to Pa Salt and ultimately answers to the questions building in my mind hopefully.

Annoying narrator

Annoying narrator, equally annoying character.

[I’m clearly out of step with all other readers, have found the stories since book 2 very patchy and the narrators even more so. (The pleasure of listening to Hattie Morahan and expecting all the narrators to be as good, is a distant memory)]

The character of Tiggy was engaging enough but Lucia unbearable.

None helped by the narrator who interpreted ‘said with a smile/laugh’ as a nervous giggle suitable only for a 12 year old girl, even when the character speaking was a 40 yo male.

The Spanish were presented as caricatures and were very weak - as typified by the limpest ‘ole’s I’ve ever heard. And again the default voice for young women was squeaky 12 yo. Very difficult, but went right to the end in hope of improvement.

Ending for Tiggy a very neatly (and hastily) sewn up ‘happy ever after’. I guess I shouldn’t expect more. Sigh.

I have very low expectations of the next book but for some reason feel I should press on. The concept appealed to me in the 1st 2 books and I keep hoping the remaining will find their footing.
