book #2 of the Three Sisters Island trilogy continues in a fast paced story about three women that share a special bond, the same bond that has connected their ancestors to the island many generations back.
Book 2 focuses on the story of the second siter, Ripley Todd. Ripley is a Sherriff on the island and is very hesitant to believe in the powers she posesses. She is aware that they are rooted deep inside her being, but does not want to expose them to the world. As Ripley's story unfolds in this page turning novel, she finds herself falling for a man who is not a native to the island, but a researcher who has come to explore the witchcraft that continues to haunt the island.
As MacAllister Booke, AKA Mac begins to realize Ripleys extraordinary abilities, he is determined to help her accept who she is as an important asset to the island. Ripley struggles deep inside with her abilities as a witch, but starts to accept her true self and inner witch as she falls in love with Mac...somewhat against her initial will!
I love the way Nora Roberts develops her trilogies, she is quite a storyteller! Of all the trilogies I have read of Roberts, this seems to be one of my favorite, perhaps because of the witchcraft energy that evolves throughout the story! Book 2 was not my favorite of the three, but still a good read, and certainly must be read for book 3 to close the story in sequence.
