8 Trilogies that EVERY Nora Roberts FAN ... NEEDS TO READ!

Etsy water color art. Great price for a gift ($12.00). Miniature flower wreath around inspirational words.

Family. Fantasy. Friendship. Love. Those are just some of the themes that keep Nora Roberts’s fans coming back for more. But with over 200 bestselling novels to choose from, the question can often be, “Which book do I choose?!”

Anyone who knows me....knows that I am a hard core Nora Robert's reader. Everything Nora Roberts put to paper, I read.  Lately, I am obsessed with the trilogies she keeps coming out with. They are amazing and the great news is, they just keep coming, so you don't feel that overwhelming sense of alone that happens at the end of a book because you know you have two  more following (until you get to the last book in the series- eek!) 

So, I  compiled a list of Nora Roberts’s trilogies that should definitely have a spot on your “to read” list — or even your “to read again” list! I've included the publisher’s description for the first book in each trilogy below to help you choose — and less time trying to decide means more time for reading!

1. The Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy

Set in Ireland, the Cousins O’Dwyer trilogy is about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love.
Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
Book to start with:

Dark Witch

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland — County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations and where her destiny awaits.
Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.
Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope — and love — alive.

Trying to escape the ghosts of the past, young widow Stella Rothchild, along with her two energetic little boys, has moved back to her roots in southern Tennessee — and into her new life at Harper House and the In the Garden nursery. She isn’t intimidated by the house — nor by its mistress, local legend Roz Harper. Despite a reputation for being difficult, Roz has been nothing but kind to Stella, offering her a comfortable new place to live and a challenging new job as manager of the flourishing nursery.
As Stella settles comfortably into her new life, she finds a nurturing friendship with Roz and with expectant mother Hayley.

When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she’s finally found refuge from her abusive husband — and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago…
