Publisher's Summary

Dear Reader,

It’s always wonderful to return to a favorite place. That’s how I feel about Bittersweet, Oregon, the fictional setting for my 1990s trilogy, Forever Family, now collected here in one volume with a new title - Envious! I’m delighted to revisit Bittersweet in the company of Bliss, Katie, and Tiffany - three women who’ve just discovered they are half-sisters...

Bliss Cawthorne is John Cawthorne’s only legitimate daughter, but her father’s wealth has complicated matters. Mason Lafferty believed he wasn’t good enough for the boss’s daughter and broke Bliss’s heart after saving her life. Yet now he’s back in Bittersweet, determined to make her trust him again.

Tiffany Santini is widowed and struggling to raise two children after a car accident. That doesn’t mean she needs interference from her powerful brother-in-law. And Katie Kincaid is too busy wrangling her rambunctious son to get involved with the enigmatic cowboy next door. Then there’s the mystery at the heart of Bittersweet - the recent disappearance of an elderly local, Isaac Wells, who has vanished without trace, casting a dark cloud over all their lives...

Join me in Bittersweet as these three very different, independent women try to escape the shadows of their pasts...

This is not a mystery or thriller

This should be in the dysfunctional family love stories. I have never done a review but thought other Lisa Jackson fans should know.

This one kept me going.

Loved it. I love Lisa Jackson's books. Intriguing with some romance. Family is everything in life.

Too much repeating

Characters spend way too much going over the same ideas and thoughts. It’s like the author doesn’t
think the reader is catching on the 1st or second time something is said, so they have to say it it’ll think it again. Where’s the editor in all of this? Isn’t it the

Horribly disappointing

I've read several Lisa Jackson books and liked them. Therefore even though it was very bad I kept listening thinking that it would get better. It didn't.

This shouldn't be classified as a mystery or a thriller. It's a poorly written romance novel.

If you're looking for a thriller, this isn't it. If you're wanting a romance novel, I'd still steer clear of this. You'd find better writing in an old paperback with Fabio on the cover.

This book doesn’t belong on the Suspense/Thriller pages

This book wasn’t suspenseful despite me finding it under that category, and is generally Lisa Jackson’s wheelhouse. Instead it was like three romance novels mashed together. I’m highly disappointed, and what bothers me the most is I didn’t just stop and say this isn’t for me! I should have done so. If you looking for romance this is the book for you, the only suspense you’ll find is whether it was worth listening to, for me the answer was no!

Good not Great

Its unusual for this author to get less than 5 stars from me. She is clearly one of my favorites. However I feel this was just drawn out too much. Some characters are almost forgotten by the time you get to Part 3 and I found myself wondering, "now who was that?" It was still good, but a little disappointing.

Awful!

I have listened to a lot of Lisa Jackson's books, so I was severely disappointed by this one. Story line is terrible - very weak and not interesting. Everything is so "fake", and I think 2/3 of the book is versions of the same sentence repeated over and over and over again. If this was the first audiobook I listened to from Lisa Jackson, I wouldn't have finished it, and I would have never purchased anything written by her ever again. Because I have heard other good books from her, I'll give her another chance, but............
