Book Review – The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery

ABOUT THE BOOK


Nicole Lord wants to be a good wife, but there's a difference between being supportive and supporting her husband, who quit his job to write a screenplay she's never seen. He won't even help take care of their son, leaving Nicole to run the house and work full-time at her Mischief Bay Pilates studio. Can she say enough is enough without losing the man she loves? 

Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg rose to become vice president in her firm, but she wonders now whether she made the right choice. An exciting new relationship with a great guy convinces her that it might not be too late—until he drops a bombshell that has her questioning whether she can have it all. And if she can, does she want it? 

Although Pam Eiland has a beautiful house and a husband she adores, she feels… restless. She wonders who a stay-at-home mom becomes after the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise her husband brings the heat and the humor back to their marriage, but when unexpected change turns her life upside down, she'll have to redefine herself. Again. 


Through romance and heartbreak, laughter and tears, three very different women will discover that friends can become family, and that life is richer with sisters at your side. 

REVIEW


Being a fan of Susan Mallery, I expected good things from this novel and I was not at all disappointed.  I am really enjoying her Women’s Lit that she is writing.  The characters are all identifiable and real.  I also love that they are a variety of ages and going through similar yet very different situations at the same time.  This book has a little bit of everything, friendship, romance, tragedy, and everything in between.  I recommend this book to anyone who loves books about friendship, survival, and of course romance.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
