"Fabulous story with magic and suspense"

In California, Evan Remington often informed his wife Helen that the only way she will leave him is in a coffin. Helen remained with her wealthy husband until she concluded that his abuse was heading towards completing his prophecy. Knowing she must flee, Helen faked her death and changed her identity to Nell Channing.

Eight months later and owning about two hundred dollars, Nell settles on Three Sisters Island off the Massachusetts coast. She feels an affinity to a cafe-book store owned by Mia Devlin and quickly obtains the job as cook, mostly because she can make cappuccino. Mia, a witch, believes Nell is a descendent of the island's three founders who fled to here to escape the Salem trials. Sheriff Zack Todd begins drinking a lot of coffee as he tries to penetrate Nell's wary visage in order to explore their attraction. However, a tourist recognizes Nell, making it obvious that Evan is coming.

DANCE UPON THE AIR shows why the incomparable Nora needs no second name for romance readers to realize that another distinctive book is available for quality reading. Her latest tale, DANCE UPON THE AIR, will have the audience dance upon the ceiling with elation because the novel is fabulous. The story line is exciting as it contains magic (love and witchcraft) and suspense. The characters ring authentic especially Nell who fears even the kind love offered by Zack. Readers and reviewers, at least this one, will anxiously await books two and three in Ms. Robert's Three Sisters Island Trilogy (stories of Mia and Zack's sister Ripley).

First in the bewitching new Three Sisters Island trilogy.

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 identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café -- 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 so carefully created 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 the nightmares of the past haunting her every step -- she must find the power to save her home, her love . . . and herself.
