REVIEW: Heaven and Earth: Three Sisters Island book two by Nora Roberts
Publication date: January 1, 2001

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…

So far, I adore this trilogy. The dynamics of how the three sisters live in a cycle is very intriguing. Plus, the characters are super relatable. Even though Ripley, Nell and Mia are witches they still have very human lives/feelings. That makes it very simple to understand their feelings, from boy problems to ex-bestie problems, we've all been through it.

Now to the romance part! I adore Mac and Ripley together! Some of the scenes between these two had me tearing up. And the shocking part is, they wouldn't even be sad scenes! Mac was just so understanding and sweet. Who doesn't love a hot nerd though?

And finally, the magic. I love that the Three Sisters trilogy is based from the Salem witch trials. The trilogy brings a fun (at times) new aspect to the trials. (For those of you that aren't knowledgeable about the Salem witch trials they are, sadly, a real event in our history.)

All that said, I do find the books predictable. I can't say much here that won't spoil the story but I will say that I knew how the book would end way before it actually did.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars.
