Susan Mallery Appreciation Day! Celebrating the release of her latest book, "Evening Stars: A Blackberry Island Novel"


Harlequin Books celebrates the release of "Evening Stars," the third book in the Blackberry Island series, with Susan Mallery Appreciation Day!





About The Book:

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?




My Thoughts:

Author Susan Mallery takes her readers on one last trip to Blackberry Island in her latest book, "Evening Stars," a lively story of family dysfunction at it's best.

Mallery's gift for combining a great cast of characters and a wonderful story is evident in this novel. She brings a great tale of two sisters and a slightly flaky mother, adds in an interesting romantic triangle and tops it off with a quirky little mystery - creating the perfect blend for an unforgettable read.

I'll admit - I'll a little sad to see the "Blackberry Island" series come to an end, but Mallery promises a new series focusing on Mischief Bay, California - home to the younger sister in this tale.  Sounds like it will be worth waiting for!
