A #1 New York Times Bestselling AuthorSide by side, three sisters must start over and rebuild their lives. Finola, a popular LA morning show host, is blindsided on live TV by news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation. Zennie's breakup is no big loss -- and with no attachments, she agrees to be the surrogate for her best friend. But pregnancy is lonelier and more complicated than she imagined. Ali is used to being the overlooked sister, but when her fiancé sends his brother to call off the wedding, it's a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up "for support," making Ali wonder if someone finally sees her in a way no one ever has.

Booklist Review: "Three sisters suffer breakups and survive to thrive in Mallery's (Sisters like Us, 2018) latest, as she alternates between women's fiction and romance. Finola, a morning TV host, is told by her husband, right before a show, that he's having an affair. Her guest is a rising musician who tells Finola that she's her husband's mistress. Zennie's fourth date with Clark ends when he tells her he knows she doesn't see him as boyfriend material, leaving her wondering what she does want. Ali's fiancé sends his brother, Daniel, to break up with her just weeks before their wedding, and lets her deal with canceling everything. Zennie's decision to become a surrogate for an infertile friend sparks discussion, and painful truths emerge about her sisters and family as they each examine the steps that led to their current predicaments. Mallery brings her signature humor and style to this moving story of strong women who help each other deal with realistic challenges, a tale as appealing as the fiction of Debbie Macomber and Anne Tyler.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Mallery's heartwarming novel, three California sisters discover their inner strengths as they face trials in their lives. L.A. morning talk show host Finola Corrado is blindsided when her husband, Nigel, confesses his infidelity minutes before her live interview with country-pop star Treasure-Nigel's lover. Ali Schmitt, Finola's sister, felt invisible until she met Glen and is excited about their upcoming wedding, but his brother Daniel shows up at her apartment to inform her that Glen is calling off the wedding and refuses to tell her in person. Daniel is kind and attractive, making Ali wonder whether he might be a suitable replacement for Glen. Zennie Schmitt, a scrub nurse, believes she is doing the right thing when she agrees to act as a surrogate mother for her best friend, Bernie. As Fiona, Ali, and Zennie help their mother clean out her house to get it ready for sale, their lives intertwine and their candid interactions are believable and real. Mallery fans and newcomers alike will adore this tale about the bonds of sisterhood and friendship tested by life's ups and downs. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
