REVIEW

"The author knows how to write what the readers want to read"

Off the Massachusetts coast, Deputy Sheriff Ripley Todd loves her home, Three Sisters Island and its people, but rejects the legend that the island was once the home of three seventeenth century witch siblings with special powers. Deep down perhaps in her subconscious or pre- subconscious, Ripley knows the truth, but fears consciously embracing it.

Paranormal research scientist Dr. MacAllister Booke has concluded that ninety-eight percent of alleged otherworldly phenomena touching this mortal plane is delusions or cons. However that other two-percent keeps MacAllister excited about his work. He ferries to Three Sisters Island to evaluate the legend. Ripley, still rebounding from the weird Nell Channing Remington case (see DANCE UPON THE AIR), tries to avoid Mac. However, he finds her fascinating on two levels: that of a researcher who sees she contains something different but special and that of wanting a lifetime studying his beloved. However, Ripley resists on both fronts even if she is falling in love with her persistent suitor. First she must cope with an evil that wants to destroy her just the way it happened three centuries ago.

The second Three Sisters Island tale, HEAVEN AND EARTH, is a wonderful paranormal romance that showcases the outstanding bewitching talent of Nora Roberts to tell an enchanting tale. The story line never eases up whether it focuses on the paranormal or the romance as Ms. Roberts facilely intertwines the subplots into a magically charged novel. The lead couple charms the audience while the return of previous characters provides a feeling of returning to a wonderful place and also serves to whet the appetite of fans for Mia's story.

SUMMARY

2002 RITA Finalist

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....
