Susan Mallery, the New York Times bestselling author of Three Sisters, is world renowned for her "insightful, funny, and poignant" stories (Booklist). With her brand-new Mischief Bay series, she brings vivid color to the story of three friends on the brink of a new life.

Nicole Lord wants to be a good wife, but there's a difference between being supportive and supporting her husband, who quit his job to write a screenplay she's never seen. He won't even help take care of their son, leaving Nicole to run the house and work full-time.

Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg became VP at her firm, but she wonders now whether she made the right choice. An exciting new relationship with a great guy convinces her that it might not be too late—until he drops a bombshell that has her questioning whether she really can have it all.

Although Pam Eiland adores her husband, she feels restless now that the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise him brings the heat and humor back to their marriage, but when unexpected change turns her life upside down, she'll have to redefine herself. Again.

Through romance and heartbreak, laughter and tears, the girls of Mischief Bay will discover that life is richer with friends at your side.

Mallery definitely kept me on my toes with this one. There were more that I few times where the unimaginable happened, yet in a very real & emotional manner. This was real life. Readers easily experience the joys and sorrows alongside the characters. The novel itself does start out a bit slow as you get to know the characters, which is typical for the first novel in a new series, but as you get to know the characters it really lets fly. Mallery has developed a fantastic plot that combines the emotionality of heartbreak with all the joys that the best in life can bring, sometimes within paragraphs. I love the fact that this novel is about women whose lives are already well under way. They are such great friends yet at very different times and places in their lives. Their life experience makes them so much more enjoyable to read about and easy to relate to. I easily fell in love with each of the main characters in the series. The variety of character types gives a well-rounded feel to the novel while insuring that there’s someone for everyone to relate to. This novel encompasses so much more than a single couple.
