Publisher Description

The California sunshine’s not quite so bright for three sisters who get dumped in the same week…

Finola, a popular LA morning-show host, is famously upbeat until she’s blindsided on live TV by the news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation who has set their affair to music. While avoiding the tabloids and pretending she’s just fine, she’s crumbling inside, desperate for him to come to his senses and for life to go back to normal.

Zennie’s breakup is no big loss. Although the world insists she pair up, she’d rather be surfing. So agreeing to be the surrogate for her best friend is a no-brainer—after all, she has an available womb and no other attachments to worry about. Except…when everyone else, including her big sister, thinks she’s making a huge mistake, being pregnant is a lot lonelier—and more complicated—than she imagined.

Never the tallest, thinnest or prettiest sister, Ali is used to being overlooked, but when her fiancé sends his disapproving brother to call off the wedding, it’s a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up “for support,” making Ali wonder if maybe—for once—someone sees her in a way no one ever has.

But side by side by side, these sisters will start over and rebuild their lives with all the affection, charm and laugh-out-loud humor that is classic Susan Mallery.

Don't miss New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery's heartwarming summer novel, The Summer Book Club, where conversations over a glass of wine turns into something much more in this journey of motherhood, friendship and love.

Sisters who get dumped together stay together!

What a great story and study of sisters in crisis and how each one copes, learns and grows into the best version of herself. Was very interesting to see how each sister handled being dumped, One being in denial, one being relieved and one totally devastated.

I love how each sister saw their place in the family so differently Finola, being the oldest and the only child of her mother and late father, Zennie, her father‘s favorite and Ali the baby felt she had no parent of her own. And between the sisters Zani always felt left out. So when all three were dealing with their own break ups and bring in their lives back together it was interesting to see the dynamics that brought the sisters together and how they supported each other to become the best she can be.

Now, we cannot forget their mother who desperately wants grandchildren. I definitely would describe her as a drama queen. But she always made me smile when she was in the story. Even Mary Jo found her happy ending.
