But as fun as all this romance is, Nina has real life to deal with. Averil whines and complains that Nina is bossy, but Averil doesn’t take responsibility for any of her actions.

The good news was, if anyone she knew drove by, he or she would stop and give her a lift home. He is four years younger than Nina. I have the information from the last ad, which is the same as the one before and the one before that. She only needed to get to a part of the island with a signal.

Nina unlocked the front door and stepped inside. I’ll call the police and ask them to pick up Tanya.

You refuse to take responsibility, act like a mother and when your daughter does, you resent her for that? Her hopes of getting off the island seem to be stretching further away The little parts and characters that interest me, weren’t enough to salvage this one. But before Nina and Averil can reach for the stars, they have to decide what they want. Everyone in her world—friends, family, work—had her cell.

But her clothes clung to her in a way that wasn’t flattering, and her pants were rubbing on her thighs. She let go of her dream of becoming a doctor and in the process she also lost her first love, Dylan Harrington. At some point her responsibilities became more of a controlling issue as she felt she had to control everything in her realm.


The bad news was, it was dinnertime on a very small ebening and the odds of rescue were slim. Everyone has a Nina and an Averil in their life. And, as noted above, the book’s ending clearly endorses the idea that women need much more than a good man in order to find fulfillment.

Nina has spent much of her jallery and adult life taking care of her family.

You are what you are. He was still awesome, especially when he took care of Nina when she got sick. This is book 3 in the Blackberry Island Sstars. She should also see what else might have been stolen. Or are we supposed to agree with Nina, and buy into the norms, and the insecurities and self-denigration to which they inevitably lead?


See 1 question about Evening Stars…. She had a collection of brightly colored fun shirts in her closet. She’s very much in love with her husband, likes her job writing for a magazine, and has the urge to write a book. More “Mom” than their mother ever was, she sacrificed medical school–and her first love–so her sister could break free. Although she’d been reaching for the door handle, now she pulled back.

As a result, Nina never had the opportunity to experience the carefree days of childhood, and Averil grew up trusting her older sister as one might trust her mother. Junk was probably more accurate, but even Nina avoided the “j” word as much as possible. I hate to think of her doing something like that. Jan 03, Sharon Huether rated it really liked it Shelves: Just enough, but she would have to order more.


Normally the gift bags were filled by their receptionist before the event, but she had forgotten the stickers last time, so Nina had taken over the task. Since opening her practice, Andi had started a program of inviting local elementary school classes into her office as a field trip.


Cherise Everhard, April You say she isn’t very fun and mmallery bitch about her?

Nina snipes at Averil about how she has left such a perfect life, and what is wrong with her, etc. It is through these discussions that Nina gains a new perspective on her role in their break up and provides her the opportunity to revisit childhood dreams. Only she’d been lecturing her mother for as long as she could remember, and the lessons never seemed to stick.

The main stories are about women, their friends, and choices in life, but secondary stories include their romantic life. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. I liked it but wasn’t totally enthused by it. Don’t keep saying you lorve him to death and then accepting a date with some stupid chap, and stringing him along for nothing!

Review: Evening Stars by Susan Mallery | Always With a Book

I just opened, and there’s a lady here trying to sell a box of crap, ah, stuff. Nina and Dylan dated in college but broke up for vague reasons. They are also thinking about starting a family, but that has Averil suddenly starting to panic about her life. If I could have tea without ginger I think I could get it down. Then some things happen that really shake zusan her life.
