Amazon Review

Perennial New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts's new Three Sisters Island trilogy Dance Upon the Air is pure magic. An intriguing combination of The Witches of Eastwick and Sleeping with the Enemy, it introduces readers to the idyllic town of Three Sisters Island. Reputedly conjured by a trio of sisters seeking to escape the Salem witch hunts, the island remains a place of quiet refuge for one and all, including pretty Nell Channing who arrives in town afraid of her own shadow, with few possessions and no past. But the warm, sunny days and cool, windswept nights, as well as the loving concern of new friends--especially hunky sheriff Zack Todd--soon lure skittish Nell into a much-welcome fresh life. Nell's new boss, the captivatingly lovely bookstore owner Mia Devlin (look for Mia's story, hopefully, in the not-too-distant future), wonders from what or whom Nell is running. Mia treats Nell as she would a sister, which isn't too far off the mark, helping Nell discover and explore her inner resources while Zack's romantic attentions bring a rosy glow to Nell's cheeks and to her future. But something wicked this way comes. Will Nell be ready to face and conquer her past? Even with the love and support of Mia, Zack, and Zack's fellow police officer, his peppery, down-to-earth sister Ripley, Nell has the fight of her life--the fight for her life--on her hands. Roberts continues to delight fans and create new believers with her talent and imagination. --Alison Trinkle, Amazon.com

Review

"America's favorite writer."--"The New Yorker "
"When it comes to true romance, no one does it better than Nora."--"Booklist" (starred review)

America s favorite writer. "The New Yorker "
It's probably witchcraft that Roberts can turn out so many books and still create something that's sexy and charming, but in this tale, it's evident that she hasn't lost her fairy touch. "Publishers Weekly
" As always, the depth of emotion and characterizations bring Ms. Roberts books and characters vividly to life. This is the start of something great! "RT Book Reviews""

Nell Channing arrives in Three Sisters Island after escaping from her abusive husband some months before. After being on the run, she feels finally that she's found somewhere she can settle down, and maybe even build a life. She hopes it is a place where her husband will never come looking for her.

She just wants place to call her own, and she finds it on the island. But, she never envisioned that she would meet and fall in love, or that she had abilities of the magical variety.

This is the first book by Nora Roberts that I have read, and is the first book of the Three Sisters Island trilogy. I loved this book. It had a fluid easy reading style, and an assortment of characters which I couldn't help but love.

I loved the way witchcraft and magic was woven into the tale, enough to make it a little bit different, yet not too much that it overshadowed everything else. So if you want a cosy romance with just a sprinkling of magic, look no further.

Happy reading;)

I found this book to be a great read. The combination of history with the present adds a great element to this story. I found Nell to be a very strong character, with the fact she left her Husband in such a drastic way and found the courage to face the future. Like all Nora Roberts books, you won't be disappointed. I can't wait to read about Mia and Ripley.

Oh, I love this series! Each one in the trilogy was completely absorbing. There were moments when I wished the threat was a bit more dramatic, but that's a small quibble. I feel like I've lived on the island, and know all the characters. Writing this review a few weeks later, I can still picture Nell in her little house in the woods. Thoroughly enjoyable, really nicely written, great characters that become like friends.

For anyone new to Nora Roberts, each book in the trilogy focuses on one couple, but also sets up the romances to follow in the next two books.

I love this author and I have very nearly read all the books not just in this series but all series written.

She is an excellent author, I love the story lines, and I love that everything is in 3's I love a series of books and with a triology you have that without having to many books to read to finish off a series.

Perfect thing to take away with you and read by the pool!

This is my absolute favourite series of all Nora's books so far.... and that is saying something, I count down to her now book release dates!!!!

This first book is so good that once you have finished it, you may just go straight back to the beginning and read it again!

The characters are well thought out and distinct in their personalities. There are underlying stories (inter-relationships etc) that you just know will be developed and explained throughtout the series and this is what makes her books so good.

The main characters in this book, Nell and Zack are both loveable and you can't help but root for them living happily ever after.

I have noticed that in Nora's more recent works she has been dealing with more deep topics like abuse, rape and child prostitution (heavy stuff!!). But she does it with such style that it does not detract from the story and make you uncomfortable with the story and characters, but in fact makes you respect them more.

The story is great and filled with characters you will love and want to read more about.

A great start to a fab series.

Format: Paperback
This is the first book in three sisters’ island trilogy and it tells the story of Nell who is running from her past. Nell comes to the island because she is looking for a place where she can escape her past and where nobody will pay attention to her. She finds job in a local café/restaurant as a cook and in a short period of time she became famous on the island with her delicious food.

There she met Zack who is the sheriff on the island. At the beginning she was reluctant to start any relationship with him because of the fears her past brings but Zack was able to win over her and they have started a relationship. Zack had the right suspicions about Nell and with the time passing he was able to encourage Nell to come to him and tell him the true. However, there were occasions where I felt that Zack was very quick to make assumptions and give up his relationship with Nell.

In the book you will learn about two other main characters Ripley (the sister of Zack) and Mia (the owner of the café). The story starts with the legend of three sisters who were witches and who had established the island. Nell, Ripley and Mia are their descendants and they have to restore the harmony on the island. Mia is a firm believer in the legend and she was trying to bring together all the sisters so they have full circle. Ripley was against all the magic stuff and she tried to deny her powers but at the end she gave up under the pressure to safe her brother. Nell was more than ready to join Mia and rediscover her powers.

Nell’s past has caught up with her and she and her sisters had to fight against the evil that has been following her. I didn’t like how the book ending because the reader is left to wonder if Nell was able to resolve all her issues with her past life.
