First Sentence
With cool impartiality, India Devlin regarded the face of each and every mourner who stood at her brother's open grave, wondering if perhaps she were, at that moment, looking into the deceptive eyes of a killer who hid a terrible secret while at the same time offering well-rehearsed condolences. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars For Fans of Nora Roberts' Trilogies 4 Sep 2000
By Maudeen Wachsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rarely do I decide to review a group of books instead of just one. And, while I believe each one of these books can stand on its own, readers will be so enthralled with the Enright family, they will want to read them all. Much like the wonderful family series by Nora Roberts, these books are to be savored as some of the best relationship novels of the 1990s.
DEVLIN'S LIGHT set on Delaware Bay is the story of criminal prosecutor India Devlin and the first Enright sibling, marine biologist, Nick. And although there is more of a mystery in this story as India attempts to find out who killed her brother, it's the relationship with Nick that's at the forefront.
WONDERFUL YOU, set in Chester Co, PA is tells Zoey Enright's story as she falls in love with Ben Pierce, a childhood friend. There are some light moments in this story when Zoey, would rather eat take out than cook herself, is required to prepare a few dishes in order to help demonstrate cookware in her job on-the-air at a home shopping network.
In MOON DANCE, Stewart tells the story of the youngest Enright, ballerina Georgia. Set in the Maryland countryside, we find Georgia who wants one certain barn as a dance studio, while her nemesis, Matt, has planned to use it as a veterinary clinic.
The settings of these stories are all so vividly described, it's hard to imagine they're not real places. Readers will want to visit Devlin's Lighthouse, Zoey's Garden, The Bishop Inn, and the farm at Pumpkin Hill.
A common thread running through all three books is the matriarch of the family, Delia Enright, bestselling mystery novelist, who loves her children but does interfere perhaps a little too much, but always in a caring manner. Many readers will wish they had a mother like Delia!!! Readers will also be happy to know that Delia gets a love interest of her own in MOON DANCE.
Mariah Stewart's books, like Nora Roberts' sibling sagas, are not about murder, espionage, or mystery (although each book has a bit of intrigue as well) but are instead about relationships - between a man and a woman, between a woman and her mother, between sisters. I can't think of many writers who can do this better. In all her books, strong secondary characters abound. She creates a world the reader is reluctant to leave after the last page is turned. Thankfully, readers can look forward to more of the Enrights in PRICELESS which will be out in 1999. It can't be soon enough for this reviewer. Reading each book has been like visiting an old friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tender, suspenseful, romantic tale 19 Nov 1997
By Eileen Charbonneau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought Devlin's Light was storytelling at its best. A nice blend of suspense, mystery, and romance, full of characters to care and root for. I enjoyed India's mix of toughness and vulnerability, and her loyal and patient Nick Enright was to die for! Add a host of wonderful supporting characters including a troubled niece, a Latin-spouting wise woman aunt, and a quite vibrant brother who's dead, but remains vibrantly alive in the hearts of his loved ones, and you have good company over a great story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Romance 6 Jan 2003
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This was a wonderfully tender romance that reads like a Nora Roberts book. The characters are well developed and the love story between India (Indy) and Nick is tender and realistic.
While India is looking for the killer of her brother she finds herself drawn to her brothers best friend and the last person to talk to Ry before he died. On top of all of this is Corrie Ry's adopted daughter from a previous marriage. Corrie is a great secondary character that helps move the plot along.
It was great to read a romance book that touched my emotions and was fun to read. This is a great romance that you don't want to miss out on.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where's the romantic suspense? 15 Feb 2008
By Gizmo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having bought this book on the strength of the reviews here and now having read it, I must respectfully disagree with most of the people who loved this book. I found it surprisingly boring! There is almost no suspense in the book and only a little more romance. The characters are so fantastically lovable that you find yourself wishing for much more depth - ANY depth - to them by about the middle of the story. None ever materializes. Rather than compare this book to a Nora Roberts story, I think it's much more like a Nicholas Sparks story - feel good, but very little "meat" to really capture your attention and make you hesitant to put it down. Despite the setup at the beginning of the book, India never gets around to investigating her brother's death. We read (and read and read) as India performs her prosecutor's job (unrelated to the dead brother storyline) and get to watch her interact with her brother's daughter (over and over and over). There is tenderness, to be sure, but after awhile you find yourself waiting for something to actually HAPPEN. Nothing ever does until the last 50 pages of this book and then it is quite predictable and almost appears thrown in just to wrap up the dead brother storyline. Mr. Perfect - that would be Nick - tags along as the perfect companion, perfect stand-in father, perfect cook, perfect lover, and perfect nursemaid when India takes ill. In the end, I found this book "perfectly" boring!

5.0 out of 5 stars A star is born to take up orbit next to Belva Plain 12 Jun 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
How many years must Assistant District Attorney India Devlin pay for the mistake she blames
herself for, a misjudgment she made as a child? How many sexual deviants, preying on children,
must she get off the streets of Paloma, Pennsylvania before she feels that she has paid the price of
her transgression? These questions haunt India, who rarely returns to her New England hometown of
Devlin's Light. With her beloved brother murdered, India must come to grips with her past because
her little orphaned niece Carrie needs her.

.......Carrie looks to India for nurturing and wants her to come home to the old Devlin homestead where
Aunt Augusta keeps the home fires burning. Also waiting for India to return is Nick Enright, a man
who fell in love with her when he first saw her at her sibling's funeral. Nick realizes that India has a
lot of decisions to make and several demons to confront, but he has the patience and determination
to wait for her even as he makes his desires and intentions known to her. India knows that Nick is
that one in a lifetime male. She decides to travel to New England to take care of her niece, cherish
Nick's love, and learn why her brother was killed.

.....A book as good as DEVLIN'S LIGHT comes along very rarely because it seems to run the gamut
of all tastes. The novel has universal appeal making it difficult to classify although it incorporates
elements from the family saga, romance, mystery, suspense, and general fiction genres. Mariah
Stewart leaps to the top with a work that will appeal to her myriad of fans as well as the audiences
of Belva Plain, Barbara Taylor Bradford, and Anne Rivers Seddons. DEVLIN'S LIGHT has a
luminance that leaves most other works pale in comparison.
