From the bestselling author of The Girls of Mischief Bay and The Friends We Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs…

Zoe Saldivar is more than just single—she’s alone. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it’s up to her to stop living in isolation.

Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated—her first new friend is Jen’s widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen’s brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe’s own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam’s flustered, Jen’s annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think “alone” doesn’t sound so bad, after all.

Friendship isn’t just one thing—it’s a million little things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor than Susan Mallery!

Fall in love with Mischief Bay in these four heartwarming tales of friendship and sisterhood from #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery!

The Girls of Mischief Bay
Three friends, Nicole Lord, Shannon Rigg and Pam Eiland are struggling. Nicole wants to be a good wife, but she is overwhelmed when her husband quits his job. Shannon became a VP at her firm, but only by sacrificing her personal life. Now she wonders whether she made the right choice. Pam adores her husband, but she feels restless now that the kids are grown. Through romance and heartbreak, laughter and tears, these women will discover that life is richer with friends at your side.

The Friends We Keep
After five years as a stay-at-home mom, Gabby Schaefer can’t wait to return to work. Unfortunately, when her plans are derailed, Gabby must fight for the right to have a life of her own. Getting pregnant is easy for Hayley Batchelor. Staying pregnant is the hard part. Nicole Lord is tempted by a new guy who challenges her to believe maybe the second time’s the charm. Gabby, Hayley and Nicole will rely on good food, good wine and especially each other to navigate life’s toughest changes.

A Million Little Things
Zoe Saldivar is more than just single—she’s alone. Her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated when she befriends Jen’s widowed mom, Pam. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe’s father. Pam’s flustered, Jen’s annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think “alone” doesn’t sound so bad, after all.

Sisters Like Us
Divorce left Harper Szymanski with a house she can’t afford and a teenage daughter who’s pulling away. She’s scrambling to maintain her overbearing mother’s ridiculous standards and still pay the bills. 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. Separately they may be a mess, but together Harper and Stacey can survive anything—their indomitable mother, overwhelming maternity stores and ex’s weddings.

A story of drug and alcohol abuse and rehabilitation as it has never been told before. Recounted in visceral, kinetic prose, and crafted with a forthrightness that rejects piety, cynicism, and self-pity, it brings us face-to-face with a provocative new understanding of the nature of addiction and the meaning of recovery.

By the time he entered a drug and alcohol treatment facility, James Frey had taken his addictions to near-deadly extremes. He had so thoroughly ravaged his body that the facilityís doctors were shocked he was still alive. The ensuing torments of detoxification and withdrawal, and the never-ending urge to use chemicals, are captured with a vitality and directness that recalls the seminal eye-opening power of William Burroughsís Junky.

But A Million Little Pieces refuses to fit any mold of drug literature. Inside the clinic, James is surrounded by patients as troubled as he is -- including a judge, a mobster, a one-time world-champion boxer, and a fragile former prostitute to whom he is not allowed to speak ó but their friendship and advice strikes James as stronger and truer than the clinicís droning dogma of How to Recover. James refuses to consider himself a victim of anything but his own bad decisions, and insists on accepting sole accountability for the person he has been and the person he may become--which runs directly counter to his counselors' recipes for recovery.

James has to fight to find his own way to confront the consequences of the life he has lived so far, and to determine what future, if any, he holds. It is this fight, told with the charismatic energy and power of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, that is at the heart of A Million Little Pieces: the fight between one young manís will and the ever-tempting chemical trip to oblivion, the fight to survive on his own terms, for reasons close to his own heart. 

A Million Little Pieces is an uncommonly genuine account of a life destroyed and a life reconstructed. It is also the introduction of a bold and talented literary voice.
