We’ve always loved island life. There’s just something about the simplicity of it that beckons to us and appeals to our nature. Perhaps it’s the scent of the sea, the waves on our toes, or the closeness of a small community where everyone knows everybody else. Few people capture this as well as Susan Mallery does in her Blackberry Island books, and it is always a joy when we get to visit her picturesque community one more time. In her latest volume in the series, she introduces us to three girls who really love one another and help each other over some seemingly insurmountable hurdles.
