Series Review: The Summer Sisters Trilogy

Blessed Be 
The Summer Sisters Book 1
byTeresa Keefer
Genre: Paranormal Romance
 
Alana Summers was quite content with her life. A peaceful farm tucked in a
wooded area by the lake with her pets for company. A shop in the
small tourist town where she sells a potpourri of items that reflect
everything about her. She’s at peace. She’s Wiccan.
Logan Farmer is the local sheriff. Small town boy who went to the big city
and joined the police force. Then he came home where he belonged. He
is deeply rooted in his Native American heritage.
Both had grown up knowing that there was more to the world that could be
explained or seen. But neither of them knew that their peaceful lives
could be disrupted in an instant by a legend long buried. A tale that
had been told to them by Logan’s grandmother when they were young
along with a warning that the ancient legend could replay during
their lifetime.
But was it really an ancient paranormal evil come to roost or were the
recent events merely the doings of a warped human mind? Or had the
human’s events shaped the return of the evil?

My Review

“Blessed Be” has a little bit of everything I like. It has witches, romance, evil invading a peaceful town, that mystery building up as the page turns and that need to find out what will happen next. I loved this first book a lot!

Alana and Logan lead a quiet and nice life in their small town, having a good relationship with neighbors and fellow townspeople. She has a small shop with anything that would make your home more inviting and some casual remedies and incantations here and there. Logan is the local authority, always making sure the people feel safe and that unwanted gossip is stopped quickly. All this until something strange happens and all signs indicate that evil is back in town. Legend, witchcraft and much, much more will come together and form this beautiful beautiful book!

The interactions between our main characters are so beautiful and genuine. They even start to wonder when have their feelings become more than friendship. I loved them a lot, I loved how each used their own influence to protect one another and I loved how they manage to find the strength and the legacy they had inside.

Speaking of beautiful, the entire atmosphere in the book moves from warmth and welcoming to cold and potentially dark, once the evil starts coming. I loved how the author made the transition in these scenes and how she built up the tension. The characters are also well presented and described and even from the beginning we get a glimpse of what is waiting for us in the next books.

All in all, I loved book 1 and I am so so lucky I have review copies for the other two books. This is my first read by Teresa Keefer and I am very excited to check out more of her books! Now, excuse me, while I go finish more of The Summer Sisters!

 
 
Threefold
The Summer Sisters Book 2
 
Teagan Summers has a secret that she thought she had tucked away forever.
That is, until she was summoned to her home town of Lakewood to help
with banishing an ancient evil that had come to pay a visit to the
sleepy town. Then, she was faced with another woman whose secret
wasn’t so secret anymore.
Devon Brock knew he had to help his friend, Logan Farmer. Logan had helped
him out too many times to turn his back and say no. However, he
didn’t realize that he would be called upon to pull out his law
license to defend a poor woman who had killed and mutilated her
husband on Halloween night. And he sure never expected to have to
deal with spoiled Teagan Summers as part of it.
Devon and Teagan join forces as they work valiantly to not only defend a
murderess, but to help Teagan’s sisters and Logan Farmer as they
battle an unseen evil that threatens to destroy the small town of
Lakewood. And as they work together, they also form a tentative truce
that they both know could lead to more.
  

My (partial) Review

Ok, a disclosure first: I am half way (actually exactly half way) through this book, so my review will focus now on what I’ve read so far, with the promise of coming back with a more detailed opinion.

“Threefold” follows the action from Book 1, but brings us another sister, with a completely different personality. If from her presentation in “Blessed Be”, I did not like her so much, now we get to know the inside of her story and why Teagan is so …. Complicated.

We have the same incredible atmosphere, topped with a difficult relationship and with charqacters that apparently cannot stand each other. Teagan and Devon will have to overcome their dislikes and work together. Two very stubborn people with a common goal.

So far I like it a lot, I have no clue what’s  happening here and I am so anxious to finish it! I still have to read Book 3, which makes me happy that I still have some good time left enjoying this series. After giving “Blessed Be” 5 stars, “Threefold” does seem to go in the same direction. We’ll see.

 

Namaste
The Summer Sisters Book 3
 
Riana Summers had spent most of her adult life trying to find herself. The
youngest of the three Summer Sisters, she just couldn’t resist sowing
her wild oats and she had done it across the country. When her
sister, Alana, had summoned her to come home to Lakeview because she
was needed to do her part to hunt down and destroy an evil entity
which had been playing havoc on her hometown, she did so with the
intention of returning to her stand-up comedy gig in Las Vegas. She
had no idea her brief trip home would turn to months and that she
would end up finding out who she really was. Or that she would find
herself face to face with a man who could get her to want to settle down.
Eric Michaels had been born and raised to be a farmer. It was what he did
best. So, when the opportunity to be the foreman at a farm near a
place called Lakeview, he had jumped at the chance. What he hadn’t
planned on was getting sucked into a paranormal nightmare. Things he
couldn’t even begin to fathom. Including finding himself deeply
attracted to a woman who could create magic with the tips of her
fingers.
As the conclusion of the Summer Sisters trilogy comes to an end, will
they be able to destroy the force that had unearthed itself from its
deep dark grave to destroy them?
