Peek Inside a Book - Dance Upon the Air


When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

I just finished reading The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh. I really enjoyed it but when I got home from my book discussion Wednesday night I wanted a comfort read and not one of the 10 books currently checked out from the library. So I opened up the OverDrive App (great library service) and searched for what Nora Roberts titles were avaliable and ended up seeing that book 1 of the Three Sisters Island trilogy was free. I don't think I've re-read this series so it had to be checked out!

This week the book Dance Upon the Air by Nora Roberts caught my eye.

Dance Upon The Air (Three Sisters Island, #1)

It Begins: 
Prologue

Salem Village
Massachusetts
June 22, 1692

In the dark green shadows of the deep woods, an hour before moonrise, they met in secret. Soon the longest day would become the shortest night of the solstice. 


On Page 56:
"Nell, this is Ripley, Zack's unfortunate sister. As she's come in for lunch we can safely assume hell has frozen over."

"Kiss ass, Mia. Nice to meet you, Nell. I'll have a lemonade to go with that."

Yes. All right." Nell shifted her gaze from face to face. "Right away," she murmured and ducked into the kitchen to put the sandwich together. 


Verdict:
Even though I'm reading an ebook format, I did go to page 56 of the paperback and thankful that I did. This interplay perfectly shows the dynamic between the three main women of this trilogy.

I'm enjoying this reread and I'm wondering why I haven't picked this series up as part of my rotating comfort reads.
