About this ebook


Three women search for joy in #1 New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery’s new novel of hope, heartache, and the power of friendship.

Heather is happy . . . ish. She has a successful business, a cute but contemptuous cat, and best friends Daphne and Tori who know where she’s broken and love her anyway. So why does she feel crushed when her ex gets serious about someone new? No problem, she has a plan. More connections will hold her together while her world falls apart, so she finally reaches out to the stranger who might be her dad.

Daphne isn’t having an emotional affair, despite what her husband believes. He started the rift in their marriage when he said they weren’t ready for a baby. They used to be the closest couple she knew. Can they find their way back to one another before it’s too late?

When Tori forms an inconvenient crush on Daphne’s brother-in-law, she suppresses her feelings. Until her apartment floods, and she moves in with the dog-loving doctor. If things go wrong, she could lose her friends. . . but if they go right, she could lose her heart.

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

First, thanks to Susan Mallery for choosing me for the Review Crew and the advanced copy. I really enjoyed this. I remember Heather from Sisters by Choice and was very happy to get her story. I will say, with all the issues Heather had with Amber, who I can't stand!, she would have been in therapy. It might have helped her figure things out . I liked that Elliot and Sophie were in the book as well. I liked her friends Daphne and Tori alot. I felt for Tori in regards to the apartment flooding. no

This book is heartwarming and has an amazing message. I read this book to my sister while in the hospital. This book shows that just cuz your parents are one way does not mean that we are going to behave the same. This book touched my heart.
