The Throwback Thursday Three

Time for another Throwback Thursday Three! This time it’s the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy from Nora Roberts! I know this looks decidedly similar to my Series Reviews, but this is different in that I’m not reviewing these books as a series, just as a series of posts, enjoy!

This entire series was recommended to me by my wonderful Godmother, who is also my aunt on my mom’s side. She reads a bit, but mostly travels, and while traveling together and reading on planes, she suggested “the witch series” to me.

Dark Witch by Nora Roberts Each book focuses on one of the cousins O’Dwyer: a brother and sister from the UK and a cousin from the States. The Stateside cousin is up first, and of course they’re all witches thanks to Grandma.

Shadow Spell by Nora Roberts The male cousin is up next and in all the books the featured cousin finds their true love, but they also do battle with an ancient evil that their ancestors also fought.

Blood Magick by Nora Roberts The female cousin is last because of her on-again, off-again relationship with her lover. It also is the final confrontation with evil, and the end of series.

I really should reread this series, I’d almost forgotten about it since I read so much. But it really was very good, and Nora Roberts certainly knows her genre.

The Throwback Thursday Three

Throwback Thursday has been an internet thing for quite some time now, and it’s high time that I joined in! For this first #TBT I thought I would go all the way back to the beginning, for my first three posts.

One Glass is Never Enough by Jane Wenham-Jones

This is a little chick-lit story by an author that writes “how to author” books, which is how I found out about Wenham-Jones in the first place. I have yet to read more books by this author, or even reread the two writing books I own, but perhaps I should do so now.

Alaskan Midnight by Joyce Livingston

This was a book that was going around my work place and ended up in my possession for a time. It’s a collection of short romance stories based in Christian guidelines. While I liked the idea, the stories were altogether different.

The Man Who Knew Too Much by G.K. Chesterton

A Kindle Classic collection of short mystery stories, this was a fun little ebook to read. It reads a little like a lesser known Sherlock Holmes, but with the titular character being more normal minded than Holmes, and less insane(?).
