  • Umut Reviews
    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....

    I am always excited when I see that a new The Seven Sisters novel is being released. This is a wonderful series that explores many different cultures around the world. Would highly recommend to any historical fiction reader. The storylines have a tendency to end ‘neatly’, but it certainly does not take away from the stories themselves. So ready to read Electra’s story in the next installment & get another clue about Pa Salt. 4.5 stars.

    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.

    Predivna priča, zapravo priče iz kojih se fino prepletenih sastoji svaki Lusindin roman. Svakim svojim dijelom ovaj serijal postaje sve bolji i bolji i izaziva zavisnost od čitanja sljedećeg nastavka...Pa tako, kao i svaki put do sada nestrpljivo čekam objavu datuma izlaska novog nastavka...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    3,5 SterneDas ist das erste Mal bei dieser Reihe, dass ich die Geschichte in der Gegenwart besser fand, als die in der Vergangenheit. Lucia war mir von Anfang an unsympathisch und es wurde mit Zunahme der Seiten nur schlimmer. So blöd es klingt, aber sie ist in ihrer Welt eine unglaublich verwöhnte Göre. So eine egoistische Protagonistin habe ich selten erlebt. Sie hat so viel Leid und irgendwie auch Verwüstung bei ihrer Familie und Freunden ...

    3,5 Sterne.Eine solide Lucinda Riley Geschichte.Wie immer hat mich die Geschichte in der Vergangenheit mehr interessiert, als die in der Gegenwart.Die Geschichte um die Flamencotänzerin Lucia hat mir gut gefallen, und ich wollte mehr erfahren.Tiggi in der Gegenwart fand ich jedoch eher langweilig, und ihre Geschichte war mir teilweise zu unnötig überdramatisiert.Alles in allem aber typisch Riley. 😉

    ‘And at last, with the thought of my roots extending back over five hundred years, something stirred in my heart, as I began to feel the unbroken invisible thread that connected us all.’The Moon Sister by Lucinda Riley is the fifth book in the Seven Sisters series. It’s the story of Tiggy, who up until now, has been a bit of an enigma, not featuring all that much at all in the previous four novels. Consequently, I went into this novel with ...

    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 ...

    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...

  • KateNZ
    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...
  • Louise Messik
    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.
  • Emma Crowley
    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 ...

    Este livro é menos interessante do que os outros. São mais três estrelas e meia... Seguimos Tiggy, a irmã que trabalha com animais, na Escócia. Acaba por procurar as suas raízes em Granada, Espanha, e descobre ser descendente de ciganos e ter antepassados curandeiros de quem herdou as habilidades; a sua avó foi uma conhecida dançarina de flamenco. Ao seguirmos esta história, contactamos com a época da Guerra Civil espanhola e o percurso...

    Tjonge..... ze heeft het gewoon weer gedaan!!! Achter elkaar het ik ook dit deel weer uitgelezen. Heerlijk!! Vooral het (1e) gedeelte over de zigeuners vond ik geweldig!! Uiteraard weer voorspelbaar, maar weer vond ik dat geen probleem. Ik word wel steeds nieuwsgieriger naar pa Salt's overlijden en de zevende zus. Kom maar op met dat vervolg!!!

    Una serie MERAVIGLIOSA!! Non vedo l’ora di leggere il prossimo libro!!

    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.

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