Three amazing women. Three different crossroads. Three versions of hapiness. One amazing bond.

Dissatisfaction is something Pam Eiland never thought she’d feel. She loves her husband and her family, but she’s shocked when she realizes that at some point she’s gotten old (fifty!?!) and is now not only going to be a grandmother but she looks like one. When did this happen? She has everything she’s ever wanted. She’s been blessed in every way possible – but she’s not content. Can she fix herself?

A stellar career meant more than anything to Shannon Rigg but now that she’s got the perfect career as the CFO of a major software company she realizes that she wants more than to just be the booty call of a bad boy. Where is the family and the love she always thought would happen? Why can’t there be a man who is ok with her job and her salary that isn’t a schmuck?

Nicole Lord managed to work the loss of a dancing career dream into a pilates studio and start a wonderful family. Now, at thirty, it looks like that’s falling apart. When did her husband become so self-centered? Why is she juggling all of the parental and household balls while he’s basically a non-contributing roommate living out of the office? This definitely isn’t the life Nicole always dreamed of!

Can these three women overcome their circumstances and feelings to gain the love, contentedness, and hapiness they so desire?

Hott Review:

With the wit and compassion always displayed in a Susan Mallery experience, The Girls of Mischief Bay will have you laughing and crying throughout.
This book was especially enjoyable because I was able to identify with each of the women. Pam’s comfortable relationship with her husband and the way people come to her for comfort while not recognizing that maybe she has turmoil as well. Shannon’s slow and peaceful healing as she learns what a decent man is and hire he acts. Even, the shock Nicole experiences as she realizes her husband isn’t the man she thought she married and her decision on what to do about him.
This novel is about growth, friendships, and being honest with yourself.

Author Bio:

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.
