This is book #2 in Susan Mallery’s Blackberry Island series. I have previously read book 1 and 4, and they all stand independently of each other, but all awesome as well 😉 In this story, young paediatrician Andi has come out of a terrible break up and decides to move to Blackberry Island, far away from any potential men. She buys the derelict old three story house, one of the “three sisters” up on a hill with the plan to have her surgery in the ground floor and living areas on the next two floors. Her neighbours are two strong ladies. Boston is a successful artist who has lived in her house her whole life and is as in love with her contractor husband as they were when they met. But she recently lost her six month old baby son Liam and they are both struggling to come to terms with the loss. Her other neighbour Deanna is a perfect wife and mom to five daughters. But every day she lives with the demons of growing up with an alcoholic mother who abused her and family that took her in but expected “perfect” behaviour. When Deanna has a breakdown, the three neighbours eventually come together and share their weaknesses with each other, realising that none of them is perfect. The story is woven with the stories of the children and the men who the three neighbours grow to love again. This is a beautifully written story. I always enjoy reading Susan Mallery’s books, something about them just sparkles. ⭐️❤️📚
