The Girls of Mischief Bay - Review

Review by Marlene Engel
Pam, Shannon and Nicole are as close as friends can be, but equally as different in their individual lives.  Where one has age, another has youth.  Where one is financially stable, another has concerns.  Where some have kids, another only wishes for them.  Regardless of their differences, they all shared the most important thing … friendship! 
Pam and her husband have been happily married for 30 years.  But being 50 is something that Pam is having a hard time with.  Examining every imperfection on her body has her wondering if a trip to the plastic surgeon should be in her near future.  You can imagine how she must have felt when she finds out that she’s going to be a grandmother!  But it’s an unexpected event that turns her world upside down and has her reevaluating the important things in life. 

Shannon is a successful business woman who longs for a husband and a family.  With her biological clock ticking away, she wonders if those things are in the cards for her.  Most men are intimidated by her career or she meets men like Quinn, whose main interest is getting her in bed.  It’s not until she meets Adam that she starts to think that maybe she can have her happily ever after.  That is until he drops a bomb that could change the outcome of their relationship forever.

Then there’s Nicole.  She’s a loving, supportive wife who has been taking on full responsibility of being sole bread-winner and parent to their young son.  When her husband decides to quit his job to pursue his dream of writing a screenplay, her support and patience are tested.  Spending more time with writing groups and less with the family, her marriage is paying the price and she begins to wonder if it’s even worth saving.

With a great cast of characters, a story that will have you laughing one minute and crying another, Susan Mallery shows you that no matter what life throws at you, it’s always easier to tackle when you have good friends by your side.  An absolute must read!  I can’t think of a better book to start off 2015 than The Girls of Mischief Bay.

About the Author:
New York Times bestselling author Susan Mallery has won the hearts of millions of readers around the world with books described as “immensely entertaining, intensely emotional” (RT Book Reviews), “hilarious” (Fort Worth Star-Telegram), and “heartwarming” (Publishers Weekly). One major retailer recently described her as “the queen of romantic fiction.” While she deeply appreciates the accolades of critics and booksellers, Mallery is even more honored by the enthusiasm of her readers and the word-of-mouth that catapults her toward the top of the bestsellers lists time and again.

Mallery lives in not-so-sunny Seattle with her husband, plus a toy poodle and two ragdoll cats who are not at all impressed by her growing fame.
