Hott Synopsis:

Nina has spent her life being the mother – even to her own. Her responsibility gene is so ingrained that even as she knows that she’s fixing their problems there is nothing she can do to stop herself. Nina knows that she needs to start living her own life but is too afraid of the consequences.

Averil can’t seem to get past Nina. Always the younger sister knowing that Nina was in charge Averil still hasn’t started to take control of her own life – something her husband is getting sick of. So when another disagreement about moving on threatens their marriage Averil runs home to Nina to get this straightened out… or maybe just hide.

Hott Review:

The Blackberry Island series is so not a set of romance novels! These a set of books about friends, family, marriage, and life.

I loved Evenings Stars even though some if it was hard for me. Though circumstances were/are different I saw myself portrayed and didn’t like it much. Even with that self-reflection I truely did enjoy the book and the writing.

Thanks for another winner, Ms. Mallery!
