I recently read two great trilogies. Reading Trilogies has its advantages! If you like the first book, you know you will love the other two. You learn the characters in the first book, and you can lazily read two more books without having to learn new characters. That aspect is my favorite- I guess I’m a lazy reader? Anyone else?
This First series of three is by Elin Hildebrand. I love her books, and most of them take place in Nantucket. However, Hildbrand writes many of her novels on the island of St. John.
Because she loves St. John so much, she decided to have her latest novels take place there. In true Hildebrand fashion, you feel like you are walking the streets of the island. A friend even told me that while she read these books, she googled the restaurants, and they are all real!!
1st Book in the series
Elin Hildebrand Books
As with all Elin Hildebrand books, someone is having an affair, and someone dies. In this trilogy, we find Irene Steele who has to travel to St. John after she learns of her husbands tragic death. She begins to unravel the mystery of his other life on the island.
Trust me- these are good, easy reading books.
Jojo Moyes Trilogy
In this set of three books, Louisa Clark, is an ordinary girl living an ordinary life until her life is turned upside down when she accepts a job as caregiver to a wealthy quadriplegic, Will Traynor.
In the subsequent novels, Louisa finds herself setting out to live the live that Will inspired her to live. Her journey is not without trials as she moves from London to New York City to find journey.
With very believable characters and excellent writing, Moyes draws in her readers and doesn’t let them go until the final page of the third book.
I LOVED these books!!

If you are lucky, your favorite will be made into a movie.
