"Heaven and Earth is a good read with a satisfying ending..."

In the second book of the Three Sisters Island Trilogy, Heaven and Earth, we find Ripley Todd enjoying the smooth track her life has returned to since the first story Dance Upon the Air. Work has slowed down a bit at the Sheriff station since the tour season ended and fall is upon them.

Ripley is still unwilling to face the fact that Three Sister Island is in the balance, due to the prophecy. That if the three sisters cannot come together and reconcile their own powers then the island will sink. She would rather let her power lie dormant and move forward. However life doesn't work like that, as a new person has come to the island and his name is MacAlister Booke, a paranormal researcher who has come to investigate the history of the island.

It isn't long before Ripley and Mac meet and their attraction not only sets off all his fancy science equipment but also his body and soul. From here the story builds as Ripley must come to terms with a man who won't deny her power. And while Ripley comes to yearn for Mac's love in her life she has to decide which is greater the hold of her fear over her witchcraft or the utter bliss of Mac's love?

Nora Roberts does wonderfully in telling the 2nd sister's story. Ripley, who I think is one of the most stubborn and hard-headed of the three sisters, had me quite curious to see how her story would come together and if there was a man who could handle her. MacAlister Booke wasn't what I expected and yet he was a perfect balance for Ripley's personality. He wasn't alpha in nature but rather, he was a quiet peaceful man who strength lays therein.

Heaven and Earth is a good read with a satisfying ending that will give enough closure to this book but still lead you to want to finish the series and learn about Mia's story.

Number one New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts has enchanted millions of readers with her moving, intimate tales of friendships made and hearts lost, of legends, lovers and longing. Now, in the second book in her bewitching Three Sisters Island trilogy, she returns to the haunting shores of New England-and to the lives of three passionate, powerful women....

Ripley Todd just wants to live a quiet, peaceful kind of life. Her job as a sheriff's deputy keeps her busy and happy, and she has no trouble finding men when she wants them-which, lately, isn't all that often. She's perfectly content, except for one thing: she has special powers that both frighten and confuse her-and though she tries hard to hide them, she can't get them under control....

Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of MacAllister Booke-a researcher who's come to investigate the rumors of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there's something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. It's not just her blazing green eyes and her sultry smile. There's something else. Something he can detect, but she'll never admit. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is-and find the courage to open her heart.

But before Ripley and Mac can dream of what lies in the future, they must confront the pain of the past. For Three Sisters shelters centuries of secrets-and a legacy of danger that plagues them still....
