After five years as a stay-at-home mom, Gabby Schaefer can't wait to return to work. Oh, to use the bathroom in peace! No twins clamoring at the door, no husband barging in, no stepdaughter throwing a tantrum. But when her plans are derailed by some shocking news and her husband's crushing expectations, 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. Her husband is worried about the expensive fertility treatments and frantic about the threat to her health. But to Hayley, a woman who was born to be a mom should risk everything to fulfill her destiny - no matter how high the cost.
Nicole Lord is still shell-shocked by a divorce that wasn't as painful as it should've been. Other than the son they share, her ex-husband left barely a ripple in her life. A great new guy tempts her to believe maybe the second time's the charm...but how can she trust herself to recognize true love?
As their bonds of friendship deepen against the beautiful backdrop of Mischief Bay, Gabby, Hayley, and Nicole will rely on good food, good wine, and especially each other to navigate life's toughest changes.

"Fun, easy listening book."
This was my first Audible book. I chose it to try the program. The Friends We Keep was a very enjoyable, happily ever after book. The narrator's voice was pleasurable and made listening to the book very easy and fun.
I really wanted to slap the main characters as this story progressed, Even though I knew how it would turn out. When I get my feelings railed up I take it as good writing. Keep the stories coming.
Whiney, cheesy, hallmark movie quality. This book is so unbelievably lame. Lacks any real plot. And the reader is annoying.
"Great life stories"
As always I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I'm a stepmother and alot of the feeling were right on target.
"She did it again."
Susan Mallery has really captures the essence of these woman. This series is emotional in all the right was. This book didn't disappoint either. I'm wrapped up in all the lives and want more. The story of becoming a wife, mother and friend is throughout the entire book. I love that it's real and could just as easily be about myself and my friends. Highly encourage this series of books!!!
I love all your books. thanks for a great read! love the audible read.:) have a great day
"Too much whining."
The characters in this book had a lot going for them. There was way too much whining going on throughout this book. It wasn't just one whiner. It was most of the characters.
"Loved this book!"
I could not put this book down. It helped my days at work fly by. Definitely a must read!!!
"Looking forward to the next book."
Love these stories about family , friends and relationships, the good times and the bad times and how everything works out.
I enjoyed continuing using the stories of Mischief Bay. Hope there are more. The narration is excellent.
