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 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 from 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 . . .



  • I find that Nora Roberts books often feature older narrators or ones that give a strange portrayal of male characters. It was difficult for me to visualize the main male character, which took away from the overall experience. Additionally, the narration made Mia sound older than her actual age of 29. The romance in the story felt rushed and lacked any real development. The male lead instantly falls for the female lead without any build-up, and he initially crosses her boundaries. This aspect of the story made me feel uncomfortable, as it seemed like he disregarded the importance of consent and taking the time to truly get to know her. He simply expected her to overcome her fears because of his own desires. The plot itself was average. While I don't mind a predictable storyline, the lack of drama in the first two-thirds of the book could have been compensated with more focus on building the romance. There was a lack of suspense and limited character development for anyone other than Nell.
  • This is the first book in Nora Roberts' 'Three Sisters Island' series, and it tells an absolutely captivating story from book 1 all the way to book 3. The plot takes you on a journey through the characters' lives, from their darkest moments to their best. It has a strong pagan theme, and those familiar with this lifestyle will recognize many of the spells woven into the books. This likely reflects the author's personal interest or research into ancient practices. Personally, I believe the author's research shines through, as many spells in the book end with the familiar phrase 'so mote it be,' which isn't typically used in authentic spellcasting. It's interesting how many people have picked up on this phrase from shows like 'Charmed' and mistakenly believe it's the correct way to end a spell. But hey, that's poetic license for you. It's important to listen to the books as a series in order to fully grasp the ongoing theme, which reaches a fantastic climax at the end of book 3. This series is highly recommended, and if you enjoy it, you'll likely enjoy other trilogy books by the same author.
  • I gotta admit, I usually dig Nora Roberts' books, but with Dance Upon the Air, the narration was a major roadblock for me. Nell, the main character, sounded like a high-pitched Marilyn Monroe, and the male characters had this weird guttural tone going on. It made it really hard for me to connect with them on any level.
