From the bestselling author of The Girls of Mischief Bay and The Friends We Keep comes a twisty tale of family dynamics that explores what can go terribly, hysterically wrong when the line between friendship and family blurs… Zoe Saldivar is more than just single—she’s alone. She recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend, she works from home and her best friend Jen is so obsessed with her baby that she has practically abandoned their friendship. The day Zoe accidentally traps herself in her attic with her hungry-looking cat, she realizes that it’s up to her to stop living in isolation. Her seemingly empty life takes a sudden turn for the complicated—her first new friend is Jen’s widowed mom, Pam. The only guy to give her butterflies in a very long time is Jen’s brother. And meanwhile, Pam is being very deliberately seduced by Zoe’s own smooth-as-tequila father. Pam’s flustered, Jen’s annoyed and Zoe is beginning to think “alone” doesn’t sound so bad, after all. Friendship isn’t just one thing—it’s a million little things, and no one writes them with more heart and humor than Susan Mallery!

A worldwide success in mass market, trade paperback and hardcover formats, #1 New York Times bestselling author SusanMallery returns with the next highly-anticipated trade paperback connected to the bestselling Mischief Bay series, following THE GIRLS OF MISCHIEF BAY, THE FRIENDS WE KEEP, and A MILLION LITTLE THINGS. The grass is always greener on your sister's side of the fence... Divorce left Harper Szymanski with a name no one can spell, a house she can't afford and a teenage daughter who's pulling away. With her fledgling virtual assistant business, she's scrambling to maintain her overbearing mother's ridiculous Suzy Homemaker standards and still pay the bills, thanks to clients like Lucas, the annoying playboy cop who claims he hangs around for Harper's fresh–baked cookies. Spending half her life in school hasn't prepared Dr Stacey Bloom for her most daunting challenge – motherhood. She didn't inherit the nurturing gene like Harper and is in deep denial that a baby is coming. Worse, her mother will be horrified to learn that Stacey's husband plans to be a stay–at–home dad...assuming she can first find the courage to tell Mum she's already six months pregnant. Separately they may be a mess, but together Harper and Stacey can survive anything – their indomitable mother, overwhelming maternity stores and exes' weddings. Sisters Like Us is a delightful look at sisters, mothers and daughters in today's fast–paced world, told with Susan Mallery's trademark warmth and humour.
