The grass is always greener on your sister’s side of the fence…
Divorce left Harper Szymanski with a name no one can spell, a house she can't afford and a teenage daughter who's pulling away. With her fledgling virtual-assistant business, she's scrambling to maintain her overbearing mother’s ridiculous Susie Homemaker standards and still pay the bills, thanks to clients like Lucas, the annoying playboy cop who claims he hangs around for Harper's fresh-baked cookies.
Spending half her life in school hasn't prepared Dr. Stacey Bloom for her most daunting challenge—motherhood. She didn't inherit the nurturing gene like Harper and is in deep denial that a baby is coming. Worse, her mother will be horrified to learn that Stacey's husband plans to be a stay-at-home dad…assuming Stacey can first find the courage to tell Mom she's already six months pregnant.
Separately they may be a mess, but together Harper and Stacey can survive anything—their indomitable mother, overwhelming maternity stores and ex’s weddings. Sisters Like Us is a delightful look at sisters, mothers and daughters in today’s fast-paced world, told with Susan Mallery’s trademark warmth and humor.

Sisters Like Us is so relatable to my life. Stacey Bloom is very much like me, career oriented and didn't want children. She decides to have a child for her husband but worries the whole time. Bunny, the mother, has always put her down for "not being normal." To me Bunny is our society trying to tell me it is not acceptable that I don't want children and that I'm not "domesticated." It was nice t finally have someone like myself in a book!
Harper is recently divorced and trying to support her teenage daughter Becca. She becomes so consumed with how to support her that their relationship starts to falter. Lucas steps in and becomes the dad that left helping Becca and then he starts dating Harper. Lucas was in another Mischief Bay book and you can't help but like him even though he is a serial dater.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and how it shows not everyone is the same and not every family is perfect but if you stick together you can work through. I highly recommend this book!
