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?
I love the books Susan Mallery writes. Evening Stars was no different. Nina was the older of the two sisters and while growing up she was often left to take care of her younger sister Averil. Their mother often went on buy trips leaving the girls home for weeks – but Nina took care of everything even at the young age of 12. Even when grown up Nina seemed to take care of everything.
Averil is married and lives in California with a husband who adores her ~ but that is not enough for Averil, she leaves and comes back home to find herself. Nina wasn’t too happy to see her sister and was going through some problems of her own. She is trying to juggle working, taking care of the shop her mother owns, and dating two men. When everything changes ~ her mother finds something that maybe worth millions. Does this help Averil solve her problem? Does Nina get to have her own life? How does the shop do? You will need to read Evening Stars to find out. I am sure you will enjoy it.
