The Witches Books

My MIL and GMIL (Grandma In Law... is that a thing? It is now.) are obsessed with Nora Roberts. Also did you guys know that J.D. Robb, author of all of the In Death books, is Nora Roberts. Mind blown. But anyway... When they find a book that they particularly love, it gets turned over to me so that I can be in the loop with them.

Last year it was the Bride Quartet. Justin's aunt (AIL) gave me the whole set when I got engaged. And they were great.

This time it was The Three Sisters Island Trilogy. Or as we like to call them... The Witches Books.

Book One Description from Amazon: (This pretty much sums up the whole book, so if you're into some suspense and planning on actually reading the books, maybe skip over this part.)

Set on a remote, rocky island off the coast of Massachusetts, steeped in history, romance, and legend, Dance Upon the Air is an unforgettable tale of friendship, fate, and the mysterious ways of the heart… When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she’s finally found refuge from her abusive husband—and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago… But even in this quiet, peaceful place, Nell never feels entirely at ease. Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore cafĂ©—and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd. But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him—for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she’s created so carefully could shatter completely. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she’ll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers under a terrible curse—one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692. And now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women—and with the nightmares of the past haunting her every step—she must find the power to save her home, her love…and herself…

I really liked the books. They are really quicks reads and you can't help but get caught up in the legend of the Island. If you're looking for a quick read that doesn't require much concentration, or flipping back to previous chapters to look things up, then I would definitely recommend them! 

I also added books 2,3, and 4 to my 30 before 30 list!


  1. I'll have to remember these!

  2. I LOVED the bridal quartet by her, so I might have to try this new trilogy! Thanks for the share!

  3. I LOVED the bridal quartet! My mom is a bookaholic so she put them on loan after we got engaged too! :o)
