    OMG, this book! I love Lucinda Riley's Seven Sisters series, and I was eagerly waiting for this one.This book exceeded all my expectations by far. With the 4th book, the pattern of lost love became a bit predictable, and I was wondering if Riley would break it. And, the answer is a definite yes. I found this book very exotic, and different than others. Tiggy's story was so charming. The Scotland setting, and Spain setting was told perfectly. I fe...

    The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley was an excellent historical novel, the first in a series of books about six young women who had all been adopted as babies and brought up as sisters. The girls are devastated when their father dies and they all come home for the funeral. They are all given letters written by their father with clues to their natural parents.This fifth book in the series is about Tiggy and the story of her search to find her family....

    4.5 - "At least we have beauty…" Stars!The fifth book in the Seven Sisters series; The Moon Sister gives us Tiggy D’Aplièse’s story. Again, and like its predecessors this is a story that you will get lost in, because it is such a richly woven, and colorfully embellished tapestry of a tale. "The wind did blow you here to me… After all these years, you came as was told."Present day the story starts in the wilds of Scotland, Tiggy still ree...

    Esta vez me ha interesado muchísimo más el hilo del presente pero lo remata de forma precipitada y muy previsible. El hilo del pasado no me ha interesado apenas y tampoco me ha emocionado.

    Otra historia de las hermanas D’Aplièse que he leído en poco menos de una semana.Como he dicho anteriormente me tiene fascinada esta saga y aun siguiendo la misma estructura en todos (amor, suspense, misterio, sentimos, historia antigua respecto a las raíces de la protagonista e historia en la actualidad, etc) cada historia es distinta completamente y cada una tiene su esencia... en esta el baile flamenco, el don que pueda poseer alguien y l...

    When I picked up the first Seven Sisters novel over 5 years ago, little did I know that Lucinda Riley would transport me to vast reaches of other cultures and historical timeframes. The Moon Sister is the fifth in Riley's magical series. You know the series premise if you are reading this review-A wealthy man adopts 6 sisters and names them after the Seven Sister of the Pleiades. Upon his death the sisters are each provided with a clue to their h...

    When I spotted this little gem had landed in my inbox it was like father Xmas had been early 🎅🏼 This book has been on my pre-ordered list since last November I think it was, what ever date it was it was a long time ago!! It still is on pre-order because as much as I love and appreciate these digital review copies I’m still dying to have the pretty hardback edition in my wee grubby little paws 🐾Having read all of Lucinda’s books it is...

    So after a year of looking forward to this I managed to read this within 4 days.There is a lot I enjoyed about this book, the Scottish setting for one and the appearance of Ally in it, but for me this was the weakest of the books so far. For a starter I have always preferred the historic parts of these books but in this one, while I found the Gypsy heritage parts interesting the main character of Lucia was so horrible that I didn’t really care ...

    Locations in the novelThere's a lot to say about this book and it's set in Granada, a city where I used to live so this was magical! Also strong settings in Scotland and visits to New York and Argentina. If you love music, rustic Scottish manor houses, flamenco and travel..get this on your TBR pile!The story starts in Scotland where Tiggy, the moon sister of the title is working on a remote estate. What she finds there leads her to think somethin...

    Here I am at the fifth story in The Seven Sisters series by Lucinda Riley. I had only just finished The Pearl Sister and this arrived, I debated whether to wait and look forward to reading it or diving straight in.I chose the latter.Tiggy D’Aplièse is the fifth of the girls to be adopted by Pa Salt, the billionaire who has died at the beginning of all these novels and leaves clues as to where he found all of his daughters. I can recall Tiggy ...

    I love this series, and it was excellent to get to Tiggy’s story. I enjoyed it and the settings were lovely, but I didn’t connect as much with the characters as I did with the earlier books. Several of the principal characters were either over dramatic or dithering - not as convincing as I have come to expect. Melodrama is not my thing. And there were a couple of episodes where the motivation made no sense. So not as strong as I wanted, but s...

    Having loved the first four books I wish I could say the same about Tiggy’s story. Although I battled through to the end as I will read the next two books I did do quite a bit of skipping. Somehow in this book I just couldn’t get into the story.

    Another spellbinding story woven through dual timelines. It takes us on a journey to the Scottish highlands, Spain pre and post WW2. The pages slipped by effortlessly. I absolutely loved it.

    It's hard to believe that we have already reached the fifth book in The Seven Sisters series - The Moon Sister. It seemed like only yesterday that the brilliant Lucinda Riley launched this exceptional series and yet now I find myself having completed another wonderful, gripping and heart wrenching read with only two more books to go before all will finally be revealed. With every book that Lucinda writes I find that I am reeled in right from the ...

    The Moon Sister is the 5th book in The Seven Sisters series. The book follows Tiggy, the 5th sister, after discovering that their beloved adopted father, Pa Salt, has died. Tiggy is different from the rest of her sisters in that she seems to have a sixth sense for things. At the beginning of the story, Tiggy is being interviewed by Christian, the owner of Kinnaird Estate, as a wildlife consultant. She takes the job and moves to the isolated Kinna...

    Auf den fünften Teil der "Sieben Schwestern Reihe" von Lucinda Riley war ich besonders gespannt, weil er in einem Handlungsstrang in Andalusien spielt. Da ich erst selbst diesen wunderschönen Teil Spaniens im Oktober besucht habe, war meine Neugier riesengroß.Doch zunächst treffen wir auf Tiggy in den schottischen Highlands. Die studierte Zollogin bekommt das Angebot Wildkatzen auf einem großen Anwesen einzubürgern und zu betreuen. Für sie...

Dort trifft sie einen älteren Herren, der ihr helfen wird, das Geheimnis ihrer Herkunft zu entschlüsseln und so macht sich Tiggy auf in die ...

    This is the fifth novel in the Seven Sisters series and the fifth one that I have read this year. I stumbled across one of the selection in a bookshop in Kyneton and decided to resist reading it until I had read the first to see if I enjoyed it and could relate to it. I did obtain ‘The Seven Sisters’, the opening novel shortly afterwards and found myself surprisingly hooked- reading eagerly until I had finished it. I then purchased the next t...

    Es complicado para mí hacer escribir mi opinión de este libro, porque soy una seguidora incondicional de la autora, he leído todos los libros suyos que han caído en mis manos y todos ellos me han hecho vibrar, todos menos éste me temo, pero creo que tengo que ser honesta conmigo misma y contar lo que he sentido al leer “La hermana luna”.Para los que no conozcan esta serie, La hermana luna es el quinto libro de una serie de siete libros d...

    Was ich an Lucinda Rileys Büchern wirklich mag, ist das man förmlich in die Geschichte hinein gesogen wird. Buch aufklappen und schon ist man in Spanien, Schottland - wo auch immer die Autorin einen hinführt. Ich liebe die Schwestern Reihe und kann immer kaum den nächsten Teil erwarten. Ich muss allerdings sagen, das mir dieser Teil am Ende zu viel Esoterik Gedöns enthielt. Ich habe nichts gegen fantasievolle Wendungen und unlogische Lösung...

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for a copy of this book. Tiggy's story is an interesting addition to the series. She's the 'spiritual' sister who can sense things and has an affinity with animals - which leads her to looking after wildcats in the Scottish Highlands. A chance encounter leads Right to search for her grandmother Lucia's story - a flamenco dancer from Granada. As with most of this series I enjoyed the ancestor narrative slight...

    Oh My God is what I have to say. Book 5 in this series has blown me away. To be honest I wasnt surprised. Lucinda Riley is an amazing author and as each book is released in the series, they just get better and better.This story is about Tiggy and what she discovers in Scotland while she takes a job doing what she loves - caring for animals.Once on the Kinnard estate she meets an old gypsy named Chilly who alters her future forever; she travels ba...

    This has been my least favourite of the Seven Sisters series so far. Way too much of the story is spent in the Highlands and I caught myself rolling my eyes a few times. I’m very sentimental and emotional, but there were some moments that were too much even for me. Nevertheless, I still love Lucinda Riley’s writing and the idea of the Seven Sisters, and there were definitely some intriguing elements I can’t wait to find out more about in th...

    An excellent book it's become my second favourite after Allys book. The past story was incredible sad but a beautiful story.
