"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 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 Stacey can first find the courage to tell Mom 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 humor." -- Provided by publisher.

I think the title of Sisters Like Us is a tiny bit misleading. Yes, the book is about sisters and the dynamics at play in each of their lives, but less about their dynamic with each other.

I've recently gone through a spate of books where I read 70 pages or so then decided not to waste my time. Early on I thought Sisters Like Us was going to be another. How glad I am that I was wrong, wrong, wrong.

The best thing about Sisters Like Us is the realness of the characters and situations: their fears, their frustrations, their hopes, how they relate to each other ... and don't. There is the depth of all those emotions we find in our own lives, so accurately portrayed.

Sisters Like Us is not a typical summer beach read sisters/romance. It is so much more.

I love Susan Mallery books. I had a little bit of trouble getting into this one, but after I did, I enjoyed it!
