The third and final story in a thrilling e-novella about a psychic medium, from award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Lisa Unger.

When Eloise's granddaughter, twenty-year-old Finley, comes to live with her, Eloise's abilities start to change--things seem to be getting easier. Her load is lighter, and rather than chasing down people she needs, they are coming to her. She teams up with detective Jones Cooper to help a desperate father bring his daughter's killer to justice. Meanwhile, Finley, who is developing gifts of her own, has bigger problems than she's willing to admit. Will Eloise help Finley and others see the difference between justice and revenge, or will things spiral out of control first?

Returning to the psychological suspense that earned Lisa Unger such critical acclaim for Beautiful Lies and In the BloodThe Three Sisters is the third and final part in a gripping series from "an accomplished pro"

My thoughts: This is the third novella in Lisa Unger's The Whispers Trilogy and I really enjoyed all three stories. Giving us the back story to one of her more beloved and important characters in a few of her books, really sheds new light on not only the character of Eloise Montgomery herself, but also the overall storylines, too. Of course, reading this trilogy makes me want to go back and read all the books that Eloise appears in!

In this latest installment, we find that Eloise's granddaughter Finley has come to live with her. She is still coming to terms with her gift. Ever since finding out about the gift, she's been haunted by The Three Sisters - who we come to find out have a connection to the town. I found the history of these sisters to be quite interesting.

As only Lisa Unger can, she weaves a tale that leaves you begging for more. Combining the case of an actual missing girl with that of The Three Sisters and the stomping woman in Eloise's house, and the police detective working with the psychic - it all combines beautifully without going too far over the top. The characters are richly drawn and you can't help feel invested in them all.

Lisa Unger is one of my favorite authors and I have yet to read something of hers that has disappointed me. This is one trilogy that begs to be read, but one that should definitely be read in order as the character development really builds off the previous ones. Now, I'm all set to read her upcoming release - Crazy Love You which brings us back to the Hollows. Will Eloise be making an appearance? I sure hope so!!!
