Three Sisters (Blackberry Island) by Susan Mallery


Three Sister started out slowly and confusing for me. It kept switching telling three story lines at once. It was a while before they merged and it was a lot better. At first I was thinking that I would rather read a seperate book for each couple at a time.
Thier are some love scenes and dealing with hard issues that people have in thier lives.
Andi Gordon was left at the alter after being with him for ten years before he proposes. Then after that two weeks later he runs off and marrys his receptionist.
Andie is the child that is a disappointment to her parents. She has not lived up too her potential. Andie is only a children's doctor.
Andie decides to make some changes in her life. She has moved to Blackberry Island bought a big old house. She plans to have the bottom floor gutted and make her office and live above in the two stories. Andie plans to live in her attic while the remolding is done. She will work with the local doctor till her practice is ready for her to open.
Deanna Phillips is a perfectionist. Not very likeable. She lives in one of the Three Sisters Queen Anne houses. Her house and yard are perfectly restored. She has five girls. Deanna thinks her husband is having an affair. Her daughters are not close to her especially the oldest. Her husband travels in his job and he is gone most of the week. Deanna makes all her food from scratch. Only lets her girls have desert once a week.
Boston King is a artist and owns the third of the three sisters houses. Her house is more whimscal in design. Boston baby died at only 6 months old. She has been only able to draw him. Boston has not been able to cry over his death. Her husband has started drinking. They have always been close but now are far apart.
The story builds slowly till they are all connected and start working together on thier problems and relying on each other. Thier are no easy answers for what each women is facing but with each other they start to heal each other and help them to face thier trials.
I wanted the three new friends to all have happy endings or beginings. The more you got to know about the problems they each face instead of only seeing the front they hide behind the more I liked them.
I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley. This is the second Blackberry Island book that I have read. I look forward to reading more books set on Blackberry Island.
