Nina’s life is running as normal until her ex Dylan shows up along with a new love interest plus the addition of her younger sister who left her husband to try and find herself. Nothing was really worked threw or talked about like you would expect from a book. Nina dropped the tea bag into the steaming water and crossed to the table. Dylan is there for her when she faces a couple family issues, and when she comes down with the flu he really steps up.
On the other hand, Dylan is a painful reminder of all that Nina has lost. But as fun as all Small-town nurse Nina Wentworth has made a career out of being a caretaker.
Now a thirty-year-old nurse in a pediatrician’s office, Evenign only begins to wonder how she’s “lost her way” after both her high school sweetheart and the younger boy who once had a major crush on her return to Blackberry Island. She hadn’t settled down when she’d become a mother, and she sure wasn’t settled now.
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. And what about the men who claim to love them? Just as she was reaching for the knob, the house phone rang. In a battle between Betty Boop and multicolored hearts, Nina Wentworth decided it was going to be a Betty Boop kind of day. Nina’s feckless mother is a lesbian, which could have been ugly, if her fecklessness was presented as a result of her sexual orientation.
Then some things happen that really shake up her life. Things get even more complicated when her mother’s antique business comes across a great find. They are also thinking about starting a family, but that has Averil suddenly starting to panic about her life. 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.
He hadn’t earned mocking rights. He’d lived here all his life—he was allowed to tease her. On the feminism plus side, Nina does recognize “No, a man wasn’t the way out.
A novel about familial relationships with a little romance on the side. Further complicating her life is the sudden reappearance of Kyle Eastland, a young Navy pilot who has never forgotten his teenage crush on Nina.
She checked the fuel, and her tank was just over half full. I liked it but wasn’t totally enthused by it.
Review: Evening Stars by Susan Mallery | Always With a Book
For that, there seems to have been a strained relationship between her, her mother and her sister Averil. Nina has some things to work through — including two hot men. Nina watches the family antiques store accounts Evening Stars by Susan Mallery is the final book of the Blackberry Island trilogy set off the coast of Washington state.
These women needed to realize what they needed from life and this story is their coming of age even though they are already adults.
I have to admit, I love Susan Mallery, but I did not think that this was one of her stronger works. When no men were in the picture, Nina didn’t much care about her appearance. And what about the men who claim to love them?
I was hesitant with the first two, yet ended up loving sfars, and still hesitated with this one… and loved it. Having to be a mom to her mother and to her sister, Nina was not able to be child, she always had to be the grown up around the house.
This honestly would probably make more sense if her mother had some mental instability and I was totally waiting for something like that wvening come out – alas – she was just a bad mother.
Her arms cradled her head. I enjoyed watching the 4 woman live in the same households and figure out there place and positions in the family.
Less than five minutes after she’d arrived, she was climbing the stairs to her boss’s private quarters.
Nina knocked once before entering. I’ve read the first two and enjoyed them quite eveinng bit so I was excited to read this one.
