Susan Mallery knows how to write about real people. When you read her books, you feel like you are reading about real people, with real problems and real dilemmas. Evening Stars has Nina, the oldest daughter of a free spirited mother. She was always the one who was responsible - for her younger sister, for her mother, for the house, for everything. No man in her life, no dreams left, just working at a job she's good at (nurse in a pediatrician's office) but feeling lost and left behind. Suddenly, two men from her past re-enter her life, causing an upheaval to her previously mundane life. How she handles these two men, the sudden return of her married sister (without her husband) and a surprise discovery of a purchase her mother made all combine for a great read. High's, low's, heat, warmth and challenges all combine to make this a delightful book. I read it quickly, wanting to know it all right now! You won't be disappointed with this book, except for the fact that it is the last of Blackberry Island.
