EVENING STARS by Susan Mallery | Kirkus Reviews
The love triangle did not work for me either eveninb neither did Nina’s actions in it. Because while Mike would come get her and give her a lift home, he wasn’t psychic. Toward the end of sars book Bonnie did something terribly stupid causing all kinds of grief for Nina and others. 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?!
Bel 1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery writes heartwarming and humorous novels about the relationships that define women’s lives—family, friendship, romance.
Tomorrow she would talk to Sam and find out what charges were being brought against the former employee. The first one was by far the best in the series. She seemed so put upon but once I realized why she was like that I could understand her life. Meanwhile, Nina juggles her career as a nurse with trying to keep the antiques shop viable; her mother keeps spending money without putting in the work to keep it running.
Now we need another book to show their love story and also continue her sisters story. But before Nina and Averil can reach for the stars, they have to mallry what they want. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Everyone in the book just said oh Hey this is my problem, problem solved.
She is married to a great guy, but she leaves him to stay with Nina and her mother for a few months. Blackberry Preserves might not be classy, but it had a killer location, right across from the small beach. Jun 21, Swanangel15’s Book Review rated it liked it. My favorite parts were the stray dog, the competent new employee Cindy, and the plane ride that gives Nina perspective. As she walked around to the driver’s evennig, she felt the first drops of rain.
Nina closed her eyes as she held in a groan. She leaned her head back and tried to tell herself that a walk in cold rain wouldn’t kill her.
Two sisters are taking stock of their lives amid emotional insecurity when maklery unexpected treasure gives them the chance to have everything they want—if only they can figure out what that is. I just don’t know. Averil goes to bed for three days; Nina buys dog supplies and cares for the unexpected pet. Nope, she jumps straight into bed with the other guy. It was well written and a little engaging. But he’d never bothered with her again.
It was real and not too unbelievable. After putting the car in malleru, she started it again, or tried to. Nina closed her eyes and rubbed her temples, telling herself that her commitment to eat her brownies one at a time had not made any reference to wine, and when she got home that night, she was taking a bath and having a glass.
But we need someone in the store who’s responsible and can work without stealing. 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. For that, there seems to have been a strained relationship between her, her mother and her sister Ave Evening Stars is the third book in Susan Mallery’s Blackberry Island series.
As she says to Kyle, “You promised to change my life and you did. Interestingly, though, most of the character arc revolves not around Nina’s relationships with men, but her dysfunctional relationships with women: Susan Mallery wrote the lead character role so carefully that I was right behind Nina and when she began to see how she was controlling everything, I also shared her epiphany about control. Nina heard the click and knew her mother had hung up.
As a child, Nina fvening thrust into the parental role for both Averil and Bonnie and years later, nothing has changed in that respect.
I am always impressed with the character depth and detail in her books. Nina started her car and headed for the bay. Averil is the younger sister of Nina and seems to not know how to make up her own mind. I wish it wasn’t the end.
