This is the story of 3 sisters who all get dumped on the same day.

Ali was my favorite of the sisters. She gets dumped 2 months before her wedding and her fiance does not even do it himself. The more I heard of him I was all, you should have dumped him long ago.
And his brother Daniel, omg, what a man! He was everything her sucky fiance should have been. So yes obvi something will start to grow there

Finola was somewhat cold. She was just so career oriented. Of course that did not give her husband  the right to cheat, talk people! I also feel that she clung to his memory too long.

Zennie, well I do understand why her family and friends felt like she rushed into things. I felt like she rushed into things. Her friends wanted a baby, she said yes to being their surrogate. But even though it was her egg she never thought more of it. I mean that is your baby! That is not their baby, that is half their baby and half yours! Yes, awesome thing to do, but still your baby.

They all deal with their own things as the story progresses, and with their mum getting rid of their old place.

It was a more, oh I can not find the right word, not slow, just peaceful (still not the right word). The only real drama being when Finola found out the truth.

A good book

I felt she did justice to all the sisters. They had their own voices. She got the mood of the book too
I feel like I have listened to her before, and if not, then she has a voice that makes you feel at home

Finola, a popular LA morning show host, is famously upbeat until she’s blindsided on live TV by news that her husband is sleeping with a young pop sensation who has set their affair to music. While avoiding the tabloids and pretending she’s just fine, she’s crumbling inside, desperate for him to come to his senses and for life to go back to normal.

Zennie’s breakup is no big loss. Although the world insists she pair up, she’d rather be surfing. So agreeing to be the surrogate for her best friend is a no-brainer—after all, she has an available womb and no other attachments to worry about. Except…when everyone else, including her big sister, thinks she’s making a huge mistake, being pregnant is a lot lonelier—and more complicated—than she imagined.

Never the tallest, thinnest or prettiest sister, Ali is used to being overlooked, but when her fiancé sends his disapproving brother to call off the wedding, it’s a new low. And yet Daniel continues to turn up “for support,” making Ali wonder if maybe—for once—someone sees her in a way no one ever has.


  1. I love that cover! And Ali sounds like a great character.

  2. Hm, I wonder if this would keep my interest.

  3. It's been a while since I read her books. The last one I read was meh but this looks interesting

  4. Sounds like a good people book. :)

  5. I love Mallery's books, especially the sister themed ones.

  6. I could never be a surrogate. That would be my child and there's no way I could just give it away.

  7. I haven't read Susan Mallery before. What are the chances that 3 sisters would be dumped on the same day? Sounds like it could be interesting though.

  8. Three sisters who get dumped all at once? I would not like to be in that house that day, lol!

  9. I think peaceful is a great word, I am reading a book right now that has a peaceful pace.

  10. I read this one but the audio sounds like a very good option. Yeah for Daniel!

  11. "3 sisters who all get dumped on the same day"...what are the odds? lol It sounds like a good read.

    1. But then they were all better without them! Well almost

  12. I really like Tayna Eby / Tatiana Sokolov as a narrator. Sounds like a good book.
