Three Sisters by Susan Mallery

Hello! Are you the one who bought the house?”

Andi tuned and saw a woman walking toward her. She was of average height, with long dark red hair that flowed half-way down her back. She wore jeans and clogs, with an ivory cable-knit sweater that just grazed her hips. Her face was more interesting than pretty, Andi thought as she approached. High cheekbones and large green eyes. Her pale skin was probably a result of both genetics and a complete lack of sun exposure since the previous September.

“Hi. Yes, I am.”

The woman smiled. “Finally. That poor place. It’s been so lonely. Oh, I’m Boston. Boston King.” She pointed to the house with the sculpture of the bird on the lawn. “I live there.”

“Andi Gordon.”

They shook hands. Weak sunlight broke through the clouds and highlighted what looked like a dark purple streak in Boston’s hair.

Andi fingered her own dark hair and wondered if she should do something as dramatic. The most she’d ever managed was a trim.

“Any relation to Zeke King?” Andi asked. “He’s the contractor I’ve been emailing about the house.”

Boston’s expression brightened. “My husband. He and his brother own a local firm here on the island. He’d mentioned he’d been in touch with the new owner.” She tilted her head. “But he didn’t say anything about you, and I’m dying to know the details. Can you spare a few minutes? I just put on a fresh pot of coffee.”

 

Three Sisters by Susan Mallery

I loved this book!! Having moved into a new community within the last year, I know how important it is to form friendships with your neighbors. I have met some wonderful women in my neighborhood and have become re-acquainted  with my cousin. It’s almost like we are sisters!! This was an easy read and very enjoyable. It made me laugh and cry. A great read!! The characters all came to life for me and I could relate to each of them in one way or another.

 

The “Three Sisters” mentioned is really the three historic houses on the block.  However the three owners eventually become best friends.

Andi was left at the altar and has some commitment issues and decided to leave her home town and buy an old house that desperately needs repair and may find love along the way. Deanna does everything to be the perfect wife and mother, but finds out her family does not think she is so perfect. She wants to change but doesn’t know how. Boston lost her six month old son and she and her husband are finding it hard to grieve and may lose each other in the process.

The three women find they can help each other through their troubles and find that they can be great friends too.
