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 felt myself as if shivering from cold in remot

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. The story takes us from Geneva to Scotland

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.

I've been looking forward to reading Tiggy's story -- she's the spiritual, almost otherworldly sister, who was described as working with animals, and since the first book, this has been the sister I most wanted to get to know.

Aside from my interest in learning more about about Tiggy, I knew I was reading the perfect book when I opened it, and one of the first pages had an illustration of a hedgehog on it; or a 'Hotchiwitchi' as they are known in the British Romani language. It may so

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 reeling from Pa Salt’s unexpected death is trying to deal with the revelations from the letter he wrote g

This is the 5th book in this series and the 4th that is about an individual one of the sisters. This is Tiggy's story and is captivating throughout. First of all, Tiggy has a gift with animals - she loves them and they respond very positively to her. She is very intuitive as well and senses many things around her. Tiggy has found a job in Scotland on the vast Kinnaird estate taking care of a few wildcats with the promise of the job expanding.

I read this book only a few months ago, March to be exact. So why would I want to read it again so soon you ask? Well, I wanted to experience the Seven Sisters series again but in a whole new way.

I started re-reading the series back in April but this time, I started listening to all the books instead which proved to be quite a different experience all together. And now that all the sister stories are fresh in my mind, I was curious to see how this book held up on a se

Tiggy D'Apliese has always felt connected to nature. She works at a deer sanctuary in Scotland, where she sought solace after the death of her beloved father, Pa Salt. With the sanctuary closing, she has accepted a job as a wildlife consultant at the remote estate owned by Charlie Kinnaird. The estate had been in his family for generations, and Charlie wishes to revitalize it and take it into the future. While there she meets Chilly, a Romani man who fled from Spain in the midst of violence and ...more

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 heritage.

I admit it, I just love these! Yes, one could complain about quite a few things. For one, they are more than a bit formulaic in nature, and they require and unbelievably huge suspension of disbelief. The suspension of disbelief and the formulaic weave together in a way that's impossible to ignore, except you can - if you fall in love with the premise. And each of the beautiful stories. This one as usual, had all the elements for me. And especially because Tiggy is the Spiritual sister, the one I ...more

‘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 no real preconceived notions about who she w

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.

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 some interesting new threads emerging - teasers for the ...more

There'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 something is going on and of course, she can't help but get involved.But in t

I bought this boom for £4 from Tesco as a nice chunky read to sit with for 10 hours at the lake. It was nice to read the descriptions of the Scottish Highlands, I've never gone further than Dundee! As much as I hate being cold, the crunchy pure virgin snow sounded inviting, the trees, wildcats, peace and isolation (issoollaattiioon-mighty boosh reference, educate!) made me want to be out there.

Every time I write a review from this series I hear the echo of my thoughts on the previous novel and each time I think I change my mind on who my favourite sister is . My first assumptions after reading the first novel are just not true. I thought I’d dislike the hippy tiggy , however , this was beautiful! Amazing and heart warming. I loved every page and every word.

This is the 5th book in the 'Seven Sisters' series, telling the story of Tiggy.

Tiggy lives in Scotland, looking after wildlife on a big, old estate. She's trying to figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life, but first she must delve into her family history to discover who she is and where she came from.

Her search leads her to Spain, to the gypsy community outside of Granada's walls, where prejudice is prevalent and music in the veins of the people. Tiggy's grandmothe

I just finished the 5th book of the seven sisters series and have mixed feelings about it. The story of the past did not exactly excite me. I found Lucia selfish, arrogant and awful. Her story was nothing special. It's Just that of a dancer that is so egotistic that the only thing she cares about is her dancing carrier. On the other hand Tiggy's story was lovely and beautiful. I loved everything about her, her love for animals and nature, her commitment to other people, her inner strength and he ...more

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.
Mary Fabrizio
Kills me to do it, but this was so smarmy and contrived. Maybe being the 5th book in a beloved series and the author cranking it out in 9 months (!) while in and out of the hospital doesn't make for good storytelling. Chilly sitting waiting for tiggy in the Scottish highlands to "lead" her back to Spain was ridiculous . And Charlie and her spending a whopping 30 minutes together is all the time needed to drop your dream for a man. Ich. Props to Riley for historical and cultural research, as usua ...more

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 very first chapter and that once you start you jus ...more

The Seven Sisters series keeps getting better with every book! If you haven't already been reading this series - I would suggest reading them in order starting with The Seven Sisters. You could certainly still enjoy them by jumping in at any point - but I think you will get so much more reading them in order.

This series is about 6 sisters who were all adopted when they were babies and were each named after one of the stars in the Seven Sisters constellation. We come into their story

Another excellent installment this time with Scotland and Spain being featured. Again vivid characters that you fall in love with. I now definitely think pa salt is alive but I guess we will have to wait and see in the next installment which looks to be just as good.
