Once again, Susan Mallery has written an engrossing novel of unique characters who exhibit the curiosity, inner fears, and hopes that all of us have tucked inside. This book returns to Blackberry Island in a way that feels like home and makes the reader want to live there and know those people personally. It's a VERY satisfying read!
Susan Mallery does it again!
Susan Mallery does it once again in this final book in the Blackberry Island trilogy. I loved the characters and could definitely see myself and others in them. I was at once cheering for my favorites while wanting to smack others, crying one minute and laughing the next. I'm sure many will be examining their own lives and dreams once they put this one down. Although, plan on a while, because once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down. The love triangle really worked for me in this book, as I loved the duality of the younger man (thrills) or the love from her past (dependable). Nina has put her life on hold for over a decade. Now it's her turn. And boy, does she take it! While I'm disappointed to see this trilogy come to an end, I was excited to get a glimpse of Mischief Bay and can't wait for next year's travels to this new area.
