Susan Mallery returns with a new series, starting with the "Girls of Mischief Bay"

***************Thank You NetGalley for an advanced copy of this title***********

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. 

Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg became VP at 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 really can have it all. 

Although Pam Eiland adores her husband, she feels restless now that the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise him brings the heat and 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, the girls of Mischief Bay will discover that life is richer with friends at your side.

Ms Mallery sent us on a journey with the Blackberry Island series. They are so totally different than what we are used to her writing. We love her contemporary romance; those Fools Gold books just worm their way into our hearts. I don't usually read what I would call "women's fiction" and this is exactly what we have with Blackberry Island and Mischief Bay. However, no matter what Ms Mallery writes, she never fails to write something beautiful.

Nicole's husband quit his job a year ago, without discussing it with her first, to write a screen play. Its apparently been his dream, but when his attention to family and house drops to nil, Nicole knows something has to change. She runs an exercise studio and has a five year old son.  She is run pretty ragged working 60 hour weeks and taking care of her little one. 

Pam and her husband have been married for thirty years, but she feels like the sizzle has gone out of their marriage.  She schedules a weekend away to see if they can find what was lost in their sex life.

Shannon has never been married and has no children but has an incredibly demanding job. But an off chance date with Adam definitely changes everything.

Three friends who help each other out through everything imaginable. These characters are likable and real. Ms Mallery has given us a story that feels completely real, as if you can step outside and find these three women. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for the next !
