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
Sisters Like Us, is the fourth Mischief Bay installmemt from Susan Mallery, is a thoroughly enjoyable women’s fiction novel. I found myself identifying with parts of each character. Sisters Harper and Stacey, daughter Becca, mother Bunny, and even Lucas, the main male character. I also loved the pets involved in the story. I read this book almost straight through during a winter snowstorm. Another winner from Susan Mallery.
A great read
I admit getting into women's fiction books is hard for me since my preference is romance. With some of my authors branching out I have broadened my horizons a bit, and I have to say I am happy I did. Sisters Like Us is a fabulous book, it'll make you laugh, cry, and even want to scream. There are characters that you'll hate, that you'll love, and yet others you will try to figure out. Watching how, over the course of a few months, the various characters grow was an adventure. I honestly believe this is one of Susan Mallery's best books and as each one of the Mischief Bay stories is a stand-alone you don't have to catch up.
Love the series
I am sad to see this series end...or did it? I love her character development and the plot is not always as predictable as you would think. Some verbiage is repetitive and I didn’t care for that, but I do enjoy the author and look forward to her next book.
