Hard to believe the summer is coming to an end. I had big hopes of finding more time to sit and enjoy my books but to be honest, the craziness of life makes it hard for me to sit and concentrate on a book. I did find the motivation to finish another book though and for that I am pretty proud of myself. For my 8th book read in 2020 I picked up a book from Susan Mallery, this was my second book I have read from her and I really enjoyed it.
The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery is book #1 of a series all about friendship, love, and life. I enjoy a good series so I was really excited to jump into this one. Susan Mallery is a great author and I am happy that I picked up another one of her books!
Book 8 Read In 2020
The Girls of Mischief Bay (#1) by Susan Mallery
With her brand-new Mischief Bay series, Susan brings to vivid color the story of three friends on the brink of a new life.
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 at her Mischief Bay Pilates studio. Can she say enough is enough without losing the man she loves?
Sacrificing a personal life for her career is how Shannon Rigg rose to become vice president in 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 can have it all. And if she can, does she want it?
Although Pam Eiland has a beautiful house and a husband she adores, she feels…restless. She wonders who a stay-at-home mom becomes after the kids are grown. Finding sexy new ways to surprise her husband brings the heat and the 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, three very different women will discover that friends can become family, and that life is richer with sisters at your side.
My Review of The Girls of Mischief Bay
I would consider this book a pretty easy chic lit book but with some heavy topics. This is the first book of the series so the reader is introduced to the three main characters; Shannon, Pam and Nicole. All three of these ladies are in different stages of life but the one thing they have in common is their friendships with one another.
As a woman who has gone through a major change this year, this book really resonated with me. I found myself being able to relate to all three of these women as they all experienced some trauma and challenges. Again, it is real clear that it really doesn’t matter your age, your job or what your relationship might look like; life can throw you some curve balls and you have to be able to move on and grow through those changes with the support of your friends and family.
I enjoy that Susan Mallery writes about very engaging women and REAL problems. This makes me feel like I can jump right into the story with my own problems. As I said, I found myself nodding my head and internally screaming “I know that feeling!!” as I read this. This is a contemporary story that is so relatable. I cannot wait to keep reading the rest of this series and see how these ladies continue to through their lives in Mischief Bay!
I would recommend this book to anyone that loves a good fiction story about friendship and a bit of love. This is a good mix of chic lit, contemporary and romance writing.
Well there you have it! Book 8! While I am really excited to continue with the Mischief Bay series I am going to jump into a different book first. I know it will be a good one because it is an author that I love as well! I cannot wait to share book 9 with you soon!! I am always looking for new books to add to my reading list so please share some books you have really enjoyed recently. Make sure you check out my 2020 Reading List and Goal too. Maybe you can add some of my books to your list this year!
