Book Review: "Three Sisters" by Susan Mallery
After Andi Gordon is jilted at the altar, she makes the most impetuous decision of her life -- buying one of the famed Three Sisters Queen Anne houses on Blackberry Island. Now the proud-ish owner of the ugly duckling of the trio, she plans to open her own pediatric office on the first floor, just as soon as her hunky contractor completes the wo... more »rk. Andi's new future may be coming together, but the truth is she's just as badly in need of a major renovation as her house.
When Deanna Phillips confronts her husband about a suspected affair, she opens up a Pandora's box of unhappiness. And he claims that she is the problem. The terrible thing is, he's right. In her quest to be the perfect woman, she's lost herself, and she's in danger of losing her entire family if things don't change.
Next door, artist Boston King thought she and her college sweetheart would be married forever. Their passion for one another has always seemed indestructible. But after tragedy tears them apart, she's not so sure. Now it's time for them to move forward, with or without one another.
Thrown together by fate and geography, and bound by the strongest of friendships, these three women will discover what they're really made of: laughter, tears, love and all.
This is the second book in the "Blackberry Island" series. Although it is part of a series, it could very well be a stand alone book. The characters from the first book "Barefoot Season" were not mentioned until at least 1/2 or 3/4 of the way through.
As with almost all of Susan Mallery's books, I LOVED it!!! The three characters in the book were so different, but as you got to know them, they were really alike. At times the book was depressing with the issues but I still kept going as I knew I would continue to like it and I did.
Boston - I was rooting for her healing...
Deanna - I was rooting for her marriage and her personal healing...
Andi - I was rooting for her to start her business and her 'hunky' contractor.
I can't wait for this series to continue.
I have said it more than once - if you haven't tried Susan Mallery - you need to - LOVE LOVE LOVE her writing...
