A witty, heartfelt and irresistible story about two best friends determined to help one another shake things up and live life to the fullest in a summer that will change them forever.
Susan Mallery, #1 New York Times bestselling author of California Girls and Sisters by Choice, has delivered the perfect escape about the power of female friendship and the importance of making your dreams come true.
Single mom Ellen Fox couldn’t be more content—until she overhears her son saying he can’t go to his dream college because she needs him too much. If she wants him to live his best life, she has to convince him she’s living hers.
So Unity Leandre, her best friend since forever, creates a list of challenges to push Ellen out of her comfort zone. Unity will complete the list, too, but not because she needs to change. What’s wrong with a thirtysomething widow still sleeping in her late husband’s childhood bed?
The Friendship List begins as a way to make others believe they’re just fine. But somewhere between “wear three-inch heels” and “have sex with a gorgeous guy,” Ellen and Unity discover that life is meant to be lived with joy and abandon, in a story filled with humor, heartache and regrettable tattoos.
Don’t miss Susan Mallery’s latest book, The Stepsisters! A heartfelt tale of friendship between two women who used to be sisters.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lifelong buddies Ellen and Unity are both single and happy. Well…more or less. When Ellen’s college-bound son starts worrying about leaving his mom all alone, the besties realize their lives could use a kick in the pants, so they come up with a list of exhilarating dares to get them excited again, like getting tattoos and skydiving. The Friendship List made us feel like we were good friends with best-selling author Susan Mallery’s warm and relatable heroines. We enjoyed sharing their most vulnerable moments, and we loved witnessing the divorced Ellen and widowed Unity rediscover what real passion feels like. Although Mallery throws some very hot guys into Unity and Ellen’s path, the romantic elements of the novel take a back seat to the characters’ inspiring bond. That makes this read as sweetly empowering as it is hot and steamy.
Great book. Didn’t want to put it down or for it to end. Another great book, Susan Mallery!
