Series Info/Source: This is third (and final) book in the Three Sisters Island Trilogy. I borrowed this on ebook from the library.

Thoughts: I enjoyed this book final book in the Three Sisters Island trilogy. There were some things I enjoyed more about this book and a couple things I enjoyed less about this book when compared to the first two

This is the book that finally follows Mia. When she was a young adult the love of her life, Sam, left the island...and now he is returning in hopes of winning back Mia's affections. Meanwhile the evil curse of the island is becoming much more aggressive and actively attacking both Mia and those she loves.

I continue to enjoy the cozy, small town community on Three Sisters Island and really love the relationship that these three witchy women develop. We get to see a lot more dark magic and witch magic in this book and things definitely get a bit more dire and dangerous than they were in the previous two books. I really enjoyed a lot of the dark magic around the curse and liked how that part of the story wrapped up.

I did however feel like this book was the most dated of the books in this series. Mia is a pretty girly girl and there is a lot of oh, boys will be boys, attitude that I rolled my eyes at. Sam is a very pushy guy and there was one sex scene in particular that was a bit violent for my liking....and having Mia say she liked it like that was pretty uncomfortable. I think Sam is by far the most alpha male in this series and I would have liked him to lean in to his magic a bit more. Also I never feel like we get a very satisfying explanation for why Sam was gone for 8 years. I guess this is all to say that I didn't really enjoy Sam and Mia as characters or their relationship as much as I enjoyed Nell and Ripley's stories.

My Summary (4/5): Overall I liked this. It was both my favorite and least favorite book of the series depending on which aspect I think about. I liked the story around the curse and all the magic that was included. I did not like Mia and Sam and how they treated each other or how there was all of this "hee, hee, giggle, giggle I guess boys will just do these things". This is the first Nora Roberts series I have read and I liked it but didn't love it. A lot of the story feels a bit formulaic. I will probably read another series by her because she has so much out there. I am curious to see if all of her books follow the same types of patterns. ( )

Good ending to the series. Roberts isn't literary art, but she does craft a good tale with happy endings that make you glad you spent the time reading her books. ( )

Mia Devlin sabe demasiado bien lo que significa querer con toda el alma y ver marcharse al amor de su vida. Años atrás ella y Sam Logan estuvieron unidos por un lazo trenzado de pasión, leyenda y destino. Pero un día él huyó de Tres Hermanas dejándola sumida en el recuerdo y la renuncia. Una década después Sam regresa a la isla con el firme propósito de recuperara a su antiguo amor. Pero no es el único reto que sobreviene desde el pasado. Mia tendrá que afrontar el mayor desafío de su vida.

To recap the trilogy: Nell came to Three Sisters Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, looking to escape an abusive husband (a la Sleeping with the Enemy). She found a sisterhood of witches with Ripley and Mia and true love with Ripley's brother. In the second installment, Ripley, the witch with the biggest chip on her shoulder needed to chill out. She found true love with a witch researcher. In Face the Fire, it is Mia's turn to find her true love. The only problem is, her true love is someone who walked away from her many years ago, leaving deep scars and a toughened exterior. While I appreciated the fact Mia's story ran through the earlier installments, I was disappointment when she decided she could have a sexual relationship with long lost love, Sam. Like the other plots in the Three Sisters Island trilogy, there is an element of evil that must be vanquished before anyone can live happily ever after. ( )

Nora Roberts books are obviously fairly formulaic but I still find them to be a good Sunday afternoon in the winter or sunny summer day beach read. I think her books are at their best when they are part of a series so she has a chance to develop the characters and story a bit more. This series is one of hers that I think works the best. ( )
