New York Times best-selling author Susan Mallery is world renowned for her "insightful, funny, and poignant" stories (Booklist). With her brand-new Mischief Bay series, Susan brings to vivid color 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 at her Mischief Bay Pilates studio. Can she say enough is enough without losing the man she loves?
Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg rose to become vice president in 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 can have it all. And if she can, does she want it?
Although Pam Eiland has a beautiful house and a husband she adores, she feels...restless. She wonders who a stay-at-home mom becomes after the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise her husband brings the heat and the 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, three very different women will discover that friends can become family, and that life is richer with sisters at your side.

I have laughed and cried like a baby! Love listening to your books. The only bad thing is I listen on my to and from work in which I have an hour drive each way. Then I have to explain why I have red rimmed eyes and red nose when I walk in! Wouldn't change it!
I enjoyed getting to know the characters and watch them grow and face their problems. I look forward to the next book in this series.
"Heart warming and well done!"
Beautifully written story about three friends from different stages in life who face love and loss, death and rebirth. Sometimes they cope with humor, other times despair, but the story moves along at a great pace and I found myself driving or walking farther just to listen. I even sped it up, not out of boredom, but because I wanted to know what was going to happen.
These ladies lived through some of things I’ve survived in my own life and the emotions conveyed were very real and pretty much spot on. There are times when I laughed then thought I might cry in sympathy or thought “Yep, been there, done that.” Other times I wanted to scream, “Why don’t you say something!” or “Why did you do that?” they love each other through good and bad even though there are decades between them. Heartwarming and sometimes heart wrenching.
The Narration was very good. I will say the beginning was a little confusing as they introduced the characters. I think the voices were very similar, but once I got them straight- Natalie (30) - palates instructor, Pam (50) - Pooch owner and Shannon-CFO (40) - I was good to go. Their stories weave throughout the book so you do need to pay attention at the beginning of each chapter. The narrator did a superb job of voice inflection and captured the tone of not only what was being said, but how it was said.
This audiobook sat in my queue for several weeks before I opened it. Boy, am I glad I didn’t wait any longer!
I just love stories that get you so involved in all the characters lives that you feel a part of the story yourself! So many emotions get played out! All worked out in the end...❤️
"Gets better along the way"
I'm a big Susan Mallery fan, so perhaps this mediocre review has been biased due to higher expectations. I started it, lost interest, them came back to it weeks later. I stuck with it this time and found it a pleasant distraction.
As the three disparate characters and plot lines developed the story felt less like 3 stories whose pages got mixed up together and easier to jump between without losing interest. Each was a good story and the writing was otherwise the warm, witty, insightful style I love from SM.
It's definitely worth listening to, just be prepared to persevere through the beginning jumbled story jumping
"Characters too perfect"
I found this book predictable. The main characters were perfect and the dialogue was predictable. Overall was bored with this one.
I enjoyed the story, nothing spectacular but enjoyable. I think Tanya Eby could have made it more interesting if she had worked at varying the voices of the main characters. I took me quite a while to figure out who was who and in the beginning the narration was so fast I found it difficult to keep track of each of their lives.
"Repetitive and Predictable"
Probably not. Not complex enough of a plot.
Didn't have one
Very repetitive of facts and extremely predictable
"This was just ok......"
I nearly bailed on this book about half way through - in the end glad I finished it but it was very predictable and parts were far fetched.... the cruise and the superstar husband...really?
Not sure I could recommend this - even as chick lit....just meh.....
"cliché and tedious"
I felt like I was listening to an airline stewardess reading a very predictable story.
