California Girls by Susan Mallery

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 – 4.5 stars

Three sisters are dumped in the same week.

Finola, the eldest of the trio, is a morning-show host who’s blindsided by her husband’s betrayal with a young, famous singer, on her own television show! Just when she was ready to go ahead with a major plan for their marriage, it’s shattered in a moment.

Zennie, the middle sister, feels comfortable being alone. She dates, but always seems more satisfied relaxing at home by herself. She’s content with her job and her friends. Her recent sort-of boyfriend senses her lack of enthusiasm about their relationship and breaks off whatever it is they have together. Zennie is a bit caught off guard by this, but only mildly affected. A free agent, she decides to do her best friend a favor—she’s going to be her surrogate! But did she realize what she was getting herself into? And why does she find herself missing the man she pushed away?

Ali is the youngest of the three sisters and feels the smallest in comparison to Finola and Zennie, both in attractiveness and in accomplishments. Her fiancé didn’t even dump her for another woman, he just didn’t want to be with her anymore. To add insult to injury, he didn’t even have the decency to tell her himself, his brother broke the news to her, and he’s been so helpful in helping her get her life back on track. Why is he doing that?

I enjoyed this book about three sisters who reinvented their lives after breakups. While single they took a closer look at themselves and went after what they believed in, even if their actions weren’t immediately received favorably. But of course, in Susan Mallery fashion, each woman’s story ends on a positive note. ☺️

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I read this last year I think so your review is bringing it back to me. Yay for authors that bring things to a positive end, we need that – real life doesn’t always work out that way, but its nice to have us pointed to what could be and sometimes is.

    • Yes, Kathryn. I’m leaning towards books with happy endings right about now. The real world has been depressing, so at least the fictitious one I temporarily live in can put a smile on my face.
      Thanks for visiting. 🤗

  2. I’ve heard so much about this book, I read her NY series, but haven’t read any of her latest books. I’m a bit behind on her books, but I’m going to check if my library has it available.

    • I got California Girls from my library. I’m just getting started on Susan Mallery’s books, so I’ve only read a couple thus far, but I’m enjoying them. I keep hearing that the Fool’s Gold series is very good. I think I’d like to try it.
      Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂
