Susan Mallery rarely writes a bad book and Evening Stars is no exception. It was fabulous, thought provoking, anger producing, and giggle worthy. The added bonus of having two men from Nina's past pursuing her, was icing on the cake.

Nina has always been the older sister, the sensible one, the mother in her family. Oh, Nina and her sister Averil had a mother, but not one that took her mothering job very seriously. Now Nina needs to get a life, stop making decisions for everyone else, and simply worry about herself. However, how can she when everyone around her screws up so much? How can she think only about herself and her needs when that would be so selfish of her...or would it?

Nina really needs to learn that she doesn't always know best and that sometimes others need to make mistakes.

What will really get you about this book is exactly how real these characters feel...how real the situations are (to a point). Perhaps I can relate to this novel on a more basic level because I too am an older sister with a mother who was not the best at being mature. Yes you do have to leave your disbelief behind since some things that happen in this book, happen in such dramatic and unbelievable ways, but Ms Mallery is such a wonderful story-teller that it won't be painful to do at all!

This was a wonderful, less than fluffy, ultra sexy and somewhat thought provoking novel and one that I think you will enjoy.*ARC provided by publisher for reviewing purposes*

Read via local elibrary. Have read preceding books in series. I enjoyed this though bonnie really grated at times as did averil. Despite their antagonism to nina, I was on ninas side and liked her.her family annoyed me. Nina had from a young age, looked after the family as they were irresponsible yet they ganged up on her. Nina was very stoic. Good writing in drawing the characters bit longwinded at times but overall a good book that I really enjoyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow WoW WOW 25 Feb 2014
By TAR - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Evening Stars is the third book in the Blackberry Island series. This is definitely not a typical Susan Mallory book. It's not a romance in the typical sense. It's more of an inside look at Family, friends, life, dreams and love.

Nina Wentworth, first introduced in Blackberry Island Book Two, is a small town nurse who wants to pursue her dreams and the life she forfeited taking care of her sister and her mother. Nina is a strong person, but as the story develops, we learn she is actually vulnerable and afraid to take the risk and let go.

Enter two men from Nina's past to complicate her life even further. There's the younger Navy Aviator, who vowed his love for her...when he was twelve and she was sixteen...who caught her off guard (literally) and offered uncomplicated "fun". Shortly after she begins dating, her first love, having recently returned to the Island, starts campaigning to win her back. Nina, thinking one relationship is casual, not designed for the long haul, and the other merely friendship, finds herself caught between two men who love her.

As with the other Blackberry Island novels, Evening Stars, has additional storylines. Unlike the other novels, these storylines, are all family connected. We meet Nina's younger sister Averil, who initially comes across as a self centered "why me" troubled young wife. Averil returns to Blackberry Island on a journey of self discovery...what does she want...what does she need...and how does her husband fit in? The final storyline focuses on Nina's irresponsible and flighty mother Bonnie and an accidental discovery that could change Nina's world forever.

Susan Mallery seems to have really captured the essence of dysfunctional family dynamics and how they impact us throughout our lives. I really felt for Nina...she is extremely strong on the outside, but lost and conflicted on the inside. She's easy to relate to...not because she became a parent to her mother and sister...but because she is a giving, loving person who sacrifices for her family. Unlike Nina, Averil isn't easy to like or relate to. She's selfish and ungrateful for the sacrifices Nina made. As her story developed, however, it became easier to understand how Averil is a victim of her childhood as much as Nina was. I enjoyed seeing Averil's metamorphosis from spoiled and selfish to caring and responsible. I still don't like Bonnie...and even though she made some positive steps as the story evolved, I found her to be shallow and irresponsible.

Susan Mallery has gone well beyond her typical "romance" genre. Expect to be surprised. This book is an excellent read. It's one of those "can't put it down" stories that stays in your mind well after the last page.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful 19 Mar 2014
By Mamasherrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved the other books in this series. I hated this one. Unlikeable characters, a whole lot of whining, strife and overall unpleasantness. The character of Kyle was ridiculous. He fell in love with her when he was 12 when she babysat for him. Creepy weird stalker character.

Ick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Return to Blackberry Island - Evening Stars 3 Mar 2014
By Maureen B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Evening Stars, the final Blackberry Island novel is a compelling story about a complicated family dynamic. All of the character are forced to take a look at themselves and how they deal with each others past, present and what they want for their future. It takes place on a small island where the community is strong; some pull their strength from this island community and others turn away from it.

The story will make you laugh, cry, worry and pull at your heart strings. Susan creates a natural flow that is engaging; I love the continuation of characters to bring everything full circle. It was fun to return to Blackberry Island and I look forward to the next series.

I highly recommend this book and the other two in the series!

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly dissappointed in the conclusion to the Blackberry Island triology. 28 Feb 2014
By momofmaggie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a very big Susan Mallery fan, but I have to say this was my least favorite of the Blackberry Island series. It was a good read, but I found myself very frustrated with the characters. I just wanted to shout "grow up and get over yourself!" Nevertheless I always look forward to Susan's releases!
