      I just don't know. Something was missing from this book. I can normally relate to or connect with the characters in Susan's books but not this one. This book started off interesting but quickly lost all interest in it. If this was a show on tv or a movie I would of turned it off. But since I bought it, I finished it. Something was lacking, just not what I have come to expect from a Susan Mallery book. Nothing seemed to really get fix, or come to a conclusion. Everyone in the book just said oh He [...]

      As the inaugural poster on the WHY ROMANCE MATTERS web site last year, Susan Mallery stated: "I am a feminist. I read and write romance. Those two statements do not contradict one another." The ending of Mallery's latest, Evening Stars, provides strong evidence that Mallery's claims are not contradictory. But much of what comes before had me wondering.Nina has spent much of her teen and adult life taking care of her family. Her needy, attention-seeking, flighty mother has always refused to take [...]

      Review featured on books-n-kissesThere is just one word for the story. Poignant. Yes there is a romance (or two) in this story but that is not what it is about. This is about family and the dynamics of a family with a mom who will not grow up, a daughter who grew up too fast and another daughter who doesn’t know her role in her life. I had a bit of a hard time connecting with Nina at first. She seemed so put upon but once I realized why she was like that I could understand her life. She was th [...]

      Good story revolving around two women and the changes that come to their lives. Nina is almost thirty years old and has lived on Blackberry Island most of her life. She has spent most of her time, since she was twelve, taking care of her flaky mother and younger sister. Averil is now married and Nina's mom also has someone special in her life, but Nina is still stuck where she is. She isn't happy, but she isn't miserable either. Then some things happen that really shake up her life.Nina's high s [...]

      DNF. I am so sad. I love Susan's books, but this one just didn't hold my attention.

      Evening Stars is the third book in Susan Mallery's Blackberry Island series. This one is about a woman named Nina who grew up on the island and has been unable to escape it, even when she had plenty of opportunities.Nina grew up being the responsible one ever since she could remember. Having a mother who refused to grow up and a younger sister who needed to be taken care of, Nina took the wheel. For that, there seems to have been a strained relationship between her, her mother and her sister Ave [...]

      This was ok, but not as good as the first two books. The audiobook narrator was ok but I prefer other narratorsE SERIES:This is book 3 in the Blackberry Island Trilogy. Each book can be read as a stand alone. This author has written many romances which are primarily about relationships between men and women. For a change in this series she is writing about relationships between women as friends or sister-like. And I like the change. And I like that at the end of each book, the main female charac [...]

      Evening Stars by Susan Mallery is the final book of the Blackberry Island trilogy set off the coast of Washington state. Nina is the responsible one in her family - both her mother Bonnie and sister Averil "just want to be princess, don't want to be queen". Neither faces up to the consequences of her actions; just leave problems for Nina to solve. Nina gave up her dreams to leave Blackberry Island for medical school, to put her sister through UCLA. Nina watches the family antiques store accounts [...]

      (view spoiler)[I really can't stand reading about cheating of any kind. Even when it's only in thought, let along by having sex. It's not logical, as I'm not as judgemental in real life; but God damn it why can't people be loyal at least in fiction?! Don't keep saying you lorve him to death and then accepting a date with some stupid chap, and stringing him along for nothing!

      Evening Stars Susan Mallery This was a wonderful story of sisters and their mother. The older sister always looking out for the younger sister and her mother too; since the mother was more like a friend than a mother. After a long dry spell of a love life the older sister had two men of her choosing. There was a wonderful time of change, when the girls grew up. I love a happy ending. The author didn't disappoint us. I won this book through 'Book reporter"

      SPOILER ALERT!! I loved this series. I wish it wasn't the end. It did end with a happily ever after. I actually thought Nina was going to end up pregnant by Kyle when she was sick. Turns out, it was just the flu. But I didn't think she was going to go back to Dylan. Now we need another book to show their love story and also continue her sisters story. I mean, it ended the book with her sister being 7 weeks pregnant.

      I wouldn’t call the plotline extraordinary or the writing style remarkable, but the well-drawn characters in Evening Stars drive this novel around the bases and into home plate. Susan Mallery’s key to success involves one of the basic principles of fiction writing—creating characters whose strong motivations propel the story forward.What did I expect from Evening Stars? A novel about familial relationships with a little romance on the side. What I didn’t expect was to get sucked into the [...]

      Evening Stars by Susan Mallery is the newest book in the Blackberry Island series. Susan Mallery can draw characters with all their hopes, fears and dreams. The best part of her books is that they end happily with everyone happy and in love. This book is the story of Nina. Nina is a woman who was mother to her younger sister when she was a child herself. Her mother wouldn’t take her responsibility and lived at if she were Peter Pan. Nina took on more and more – paying for college for her sis [...]

      I don’t know what it is about these books that scare me. I always find myself putting off reading them like I am NOT going to enjoy them. It must be the heavier than normal subject matters.

      This is the first book I read by this author. This book is slightly different than your average 2-main leads romance in that it integrates the family relationships a bit more. I liked that, it gave the book a better background and more depth to the characters.Nina Wentworth is the self-sacrificing caretaker of the family. She has sacrificed her personal happiness for that of her family. Now, she has the attention of two men and a complicated life as her family refuses to take care of themselves. [...]

      I received an ARC of this book.This is the third book in the Blackberry Island series. I've read the first two and enjoyed them quite a bit so I was excited to read this one.

      I was not expecting all this angst in this book, but, it oddly intrigued me. This book is for all the women who ever felt like that it is too late to achieve your dreams.

      "TOP PICK! Mallery's immensely entertaining, intensely emotional novel is a vividly descriptive, locale-perfect, stand-out story, starring eclectic cast of unforgettable characters who will warm hearts and confound, and heroines that readers will champion. Although it concludes the trilogy, this Blackberry Island book reads well alone". (RT Book Reviews, rated 4 1/2 stars)Blackberry Island, book #3

    24. Jess on said:

      I'm so surprised by how much I didn't enjoy this book. I love Susan Mallery's books and I've really enjoyed the other books in this Blackberry Island series. But this one had nothing I liked. I though the main character was flaky, the extra family story was just boring and the heroes didn't interest me at all.I would still suggest checking out the other books in this series but don't be surprised if this one doesn't interest you!

    25. Maureen ~Bitch Can Write A Book on said:

      Another great visit to Blackberry Island.Another wonderful story of relationships.ers, mother daughter, old love vs new love. I really enjoyed this book. Walking the journey with Nina was sweet, seeing her finally get what she wanted after years of making sure everyone else in her family had what they needed. Never putting herself first. I'm looking forward to the next book she writes this author really is amazing.

    26. Darcy on said:

      Very blah. The family drove me nuts, each of them made their place and knew what they were doing, even as they wanted a change. I didn't really like either of the men Nina was interested in, so when she finally did choose it didn't really matter to me.

    27. Sally Ember on said:

      Unexceptional but entertaining enough. I've read all her books in several series and can speak with some experience when I say this one seems that she phoned it in. Disappointing, cookie-cutter book.

      The first one was by far the best in the series. Ignore this one.
